Goleta to Unveil Fairview Avenue Sidewalk Infill Project

The public is invited to attend the City of Goleta’s ribbon cutting of the new sidewalk and other improvements on Fairview Avenue between the Goleta Valley Library and Fairview Gardens on Thursday, August 1 at 11:00 a.m. in front of the Goleta Valley Library (500 N. Fairview Ave).
The Fairview Avenue Sidewalk Infill at Stow Canyon Road Project added 370 feet of new sidewalk on the east side of Fairview Avenue fronting the Goleta Valley Library and Fairview Gardens. It also widened Fairview Avenue to include a second northbound travel lane and a 5-foot wide bicycle lane. Additionally, a pedestrian crosswalk was installed along Stow Canyon Road that has ADA compliant curb ramps.
In January 2019 the City Council awarded a construction contract to Lash Construction, Inc. Work began in February 2019 and was completed in May 2019. Funding for design and construction was through a Measure A Safe Routes to School grant that staff secured. Additional funding came from Measure A local funds and Goleta Transportation Improvement Program funds.
