To view timelines, detours, and maps, please visit www.SBROADS.com and select the project segment. 

Highway 101:  Summerland
The Summerland segment is located between Sheffield Drive and North Padaro Lane. 

  • Highway 101 

    • Crews will continue installing sub-grade materials and pave an asphalt sublayer in preparation for the new southbound lanes.

    • New drainage improvements are being installed throughout the project.   

    • Crews will continue driving piles and pouring concrete for underground supports for retaining walls associated with the new lane improvements on the southbound side of Ortega Hill (see photo above).

  • Sheffield Drive Interchange

    • Crews will drive piles as part of the underground supports for the new structure. Work will then progress to forming above-ground supports. Please expect noise during daytime pile driving for the underground supports.

    • Trees & Cormorants (near southbound Hwy 101)

      • Trees will remain as part of the long-term habitat. 

      • The Highway 101: Carpinteria to Santa Barbara project has employed measures to balance effective freeway construction with environmental protections specifically related to cormorants, a protected bird species. The plan relies heavily on visual deterrents and human presence. Please expect to see biologists monitoring the area.

  • Evans Avenue Undercrossing

    • Crews will remove part of an overhang and retaining wall. Form work also begins for the updated retaining wall for the wider bridge. Please see the night closures listed above.

  • Greenwell Creek

    • Crews will install new drainage improvements.

 

Highway 101:  Padaro
The Padaro segment is located between Santa Claus Lane and North Padaro Lane. 

  • Highway 101

    • In the median area, crews will continue work on drainage improvements and grading.

  • Arroyo Parida & Toro Creek Bridges

    • Crews will install underground supports (piles). Please expect daytime noise during pile driving. Crews will also pour concrete for new side supports for both bridges.

  • Santa Claus Ln/S Padaro Ln Interchange

    • Crews will drive piles for the new underground supports for the new bridge. Please expect daytime noise during pile driving. Once the underground supports are installed, crews will begin work on the side supports.

  • N Padaro Interchange

    • The new concrete mix site, located at the southbound Highway 101 on-ramp at N. Padaro Ln, will begin concrete production for the northbound lane paving in Carpinteria. Please expect noise as trucks enter and exit the site and materials are delivered.

    • By mixing concrete on-site, the project saves an estimated 463,771 truck miles, reduces water use by 400,000 gallons (concrete mixed on-site uses less water), and saves taxpayers between $10-$15 million.

    • Concrete recycling continues by the northbound Highway 101 off-ramp at N. Padaro Ln.

 

Highway 101:  Carpinteria

  • Highway 101 & Ramps

    • Northbound Hwy 101 & Ramps

        • Crews will begin intersection improvements to enhance crosswalks, add traffic signals, and add bike lanes. Please expect flaggers at the intersection between 8:30 am - 3:00 pm as needed between mid-September and November.

Highway 101: Carpinteria to Santa Barbara is a project undertaken by Caltrans and SBCAG in cooperation with local agencies to add a new carpool lane in each direction between Carpinteria and Santa Barbara. The project will improve bridges, interchanges, on- and off-ramps, and add sound walls.
