Garden Street Ramp Closures for Fiesta Parade
Source: Caltrans District 5
An emergency project to improve conditions on the US Highway 101 undercrossing at Castillo Street will result in the following ramp closure for the Old Spanish Days - Fiesta Parade on Friday, August 4.
The US Highway 101 on/off ramps at Garden Street will be closed in both directions from 12 noon until 4 pm on Friday, August 4. Motorists planning to attend or participate in the parade should allow additional time to reach their destination.
Castillo Street remains closed from West Haley Street to the Union Pacific Railroad tracks until the end of August so the recently poured concrete slab to alleviate water at this location can fully cure. Motor vehicles, pedestrians, bicycles and horses are prohibited from using the Castillo Street Undercrossing until the concrete is fully cured.
The southbound on/off ramps to US Highway 101 at Castillo Street remain closed for the duration of this project.
The Santa Barbara Metropolitan Transit District (MTD) has an Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) bus stop for Lines 5 and 15x on eastbound Montecito Street at Bath Street for the duration of this project.
Caltrans has installed signs to direct motorists to the Santa Barbara Harbor area which is fully open during this project and during the special events this week.
The contractor for this $1.5 million project is Security Paving of Sylmar, CA. This project is expected to be completed by the end of August.
Caltrans reminds motorists to move over and slow down when driving through highway construction zones.
