Caltrans will continue construction near the San Jose Creek Bridge project site during the overnight hours beginning Wednesday, December 6 through Saturday morning, December 9 from 10 pm to 5 am.
This phase of construction will include construction of a retaining wall for a future bike path along the north embankment. Construction activities will include vehicles with back up alarms with an effort to minimize noise. This effort will also include a concrete pump truck, night lights and cranes.
The ongoing daytime drilling work will continue as scheduled during the daytime hours, through Saturday, December 9, and will be completed Tuesday, December 12.
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. Additional electronic message boards have been activated to assist airport visitors.
The contractor for the $26 million dollar project is MCM Construction Inc of North Highlands, CA. This project is expected to be complete in the Fall of 2027.
