Traffic Control and Striping Changes on Las Positas Road
Source: City of Santa Barbara
Temporary traffic control and striping changes will be implemented along Las Positas Road between Modoc Road and Cliff Drive beginning on Monday, January 11 through October 2021 as part of the Las Positas and Modoc Roads Multiuse Pathway Project. The northbound bike lane will be temporarily removed within a portion of this segment, just north of Cliff Drive. Speed limit will be reduced to 35 mph, and traffic shifted to allow enough buffer for construction work to occur safely. Drivers must temporarily share the road with cyclists and proceed cautiously within the Las Positas corridor during construction.
The Las Positas and Modoc Roads Multiuse Pathway is a Vision Zero project that will create a safe separation for bicyclists, runners, and pedestrians from higher speed vehicle traffic along Las Positas and Modoc Roads. The 2.6-mile long path is a transformative project that will connect the beach, schools, parks, and commercial centers with the community along the Pacific Coastal and Crosstown Bike Routes.
The project is funded primarily through Active Transportation Program (ATP) grant funds in addition to local Measure C funds for local matching costs.
