A new Class I bikeway and multipurpose path will connect Santa Claus Lane to Carpinteria Avenue. Pedestrians and bicyclists will be able to walk and ride between Carpinteria and Santa Claus Lane. This will close a gap in the California Coastal Trail between Sand Point Road and Carpinteria Avenue.
As part of the bikeway project, the intersection at Carpinteria Avenue and Estero Street will be updated with new crosswalks, signage, landscaping, curbs and gutters, and bike lanes. At the western end of the project, a new vehicular turnaround will be built at the end of Santa Claus Lane.
The bikeway is being built in coordination with the Highway 101: Padaro project. Please visit www.SBROADS.com to see maps, graphics, photos, construction updates, and descriptions of the improvements.
Please note: Due to delays in materials, the bikeway is temporarily open between June 30 through Labor Day Weekend. After Labor Day, crews will close the bikeway and install the final safety railing.
The timeline is a reference tool to show planned improvements and key closures.
The timing may change to accommodate modifications from the contractor, weather delays, and to improve construction.
