The intersection of Mission and Bath Streets

Source: City of Santa Barbara

Mission Street between Highway 101 and State Street, and Los Olivos in front of the Mission, are busy corridors that are in need of significant pavement and concrete work.

It's our "Mission: Possible" to create a smoother, safer experience for drivers and pedestrians in these corridors through a comprehensive road project this summer.

Stay tuned for a construction schedule.

WOW. Why didn’t many of us think of that - post No Left Turns for same hours as State and cross streets. Very easy to do ‘jug handle’ - right turn and left turns at next two corners. May add 80 seconds to your route and save as many if backed up at lights on Mission!! Go for it Transportation DEPT.!!!!

One third of city street works comes from the new retail sales tax - city operating budget only provides two thirds of the necessary money. Soon even that one third will be directed to the new police station so necessary road work throughout the city will never get done. City councils now for years have misdirected the handling of city revenues. Elect four new fiscally responsible voices to the November city council - Mesa, Eastside, Westside and Downtown districts up for election - any four people who want to save our city coming out of these districts for this November?

Some days it take me just as long to get from my house to the Mission on-ramp as it does to get to Goleta from the on-ramp. This will be a lovely project...

Same here, and I'm on the other side of the freeway off Mission. I guess that's typical.

That would cause a backup from the 101 to State Street. There are huge backups during rush hour as it is. How about limiting the left turns during rush hour like they do on State Street? That might help a little. That road is just too narrow for the traffic volumes it sees.

And can they go back 100 years, move the houses back and make that road wider? I guess what they have worked okay in the horse and buggy days. We'll be in real trouble if they try to put a bike lane on that street.

Hope to fix the a-hole driver problem along this route at the same time: random and aggressive lane switching, turning lane confusion, drag racing... What a mess this will make if traffic along Micheltorena St

The biggest problem I see is that the right side gets full of cars (starting at daily grind) that want to enter the north bound 101 so all the impatient people speed down the other lane hoping to pass as many cars as possible and then cut whoever they can causing even more of a back up. That street is just a mess at am & pm commutes.
