Santa Barbara County will begin road rehabilitation projects at various locations beginning this month and, weather permitting, ending in June. The 2018-19 Pavement Rehabilitation project will resurface 19 lane miles in the unincorporated areas of Santa Barbara, Santa Ynez, Los Olivos, Los Alamos, Lompoc, and Orcutt. Road sections scheduled to receive pavement rehabilitation include North Patterson between University Drive and the Goleta city limits, Calzada Avenue between Baseline Avenue and Manzana Street, Edison Street between Lindero Street and Highway 154, Purisima Road near Rucker Road, and Dominion Road near Palmer Road.

The estimated construction cost of $3.1 million is funded by County General Fund and Senate Bill 1 funds. These funds are used to help maintain, preserve, and improve roads throughout Santa Barbara County. The County Board of Supervisors awarded construction contracts to Granite Construction in the Second District, Souza Engineering Contracting in the Third and Fourth Districts, and Ferravanti Grading and Paving in the Fifth District.

Construction for all areas is expected to occur between 7 a.m. and 5 p.m. Monday through Friday. In Santa Barbara, on Patterson Avenue and Calle Real, night work is planned from 8 p.m. to 4 a.m. Drivers should be aware of reduced speed zones and increased traffic control when driving through the construction sites. Traffic signs will announce any significant delays or temporary road closures. Please observe construction area signs and prepare to stop when traveling through the work site for the safety of crewmembers and the motoring public.

The Santa Barbara County Public Works Department thanks local residents and the traveling public for their patience and cooperation during the construction period.

Don't you wish that when they did road/freeway access, whoever plans such things would put up signs before it's too late to take an alternate route? And that workers would use common sense and not block traffic parking their private vehicles?

Thirty years of supervising and inspecting County road, bikeway and bridge construction never had a workers'private vehicle block traffic. The only ones can can even use them are flag persons and that would be one only at each of the project limits.

Nice to see some of our pot holed roads being repaired. But when will Public Works ever do some serious repairs to Refugio Road from the beach to Camino Ciello? It has so many pot holes, some filled others not, that one would be hard pressed to see the original road surface. They told local residents 20 years age that it was the second highest priority road due to be resurfaced in the County. Still waiting.
