The westbound Highway 217 on-ramp at Hollister Avenue in Goleta is scheduled to close beginning at 9 a.m. next Monday, Aug. 6, to allow for work on the San Jose Creek Capacity Improvement and Fish Passage Project.
City of Goleta public information officer Valerie Kushnerov said traffic control is planned for Hollister Avenue to keep motorists from using the westbound turn lane, and that two eastbound and westbound lanes will remain open.
She said closure of the on-ramp, which heads toward Goleta Beach and UCSB, is expected to remain in effect until Dec. 1.
The project is designed to relieve the threat of flooding into Old Town from San Jose Creek.
