Caltrans will continue construction on the US 101 San Jose Creek Bridge Replacement Project on Tuesday, February 13 and Wednesday, February 14 during the overnight hours from 9 pm to 6 am. Travelers will encounter one lane open in each direction of US 101 during this roadwork.
This phase of construction will include setting box girders which will support the bridge. Once the girders are set, the contractor will spend the next two weeks preparing the bridge deck and then placing concrete, weather permitting.
The contractor for the $20 million dollar project is MCM Construction Inc of North Highlands, CA. This project is expected to be complete in the June of 2026.
The eastbound SR 217 on-ramp at Sandspit Road will remain closed for the duration of the project, estimated at two years. Travelers leaving the Santa Barbara Airport will use Fairview Avenue and Hollister Avenue to reach US 101.
