Pile Driving to Begin Wednesday for Hwy. 101/Union Valley Parkway Interchange Project

Source: Jim Shivers for Caltrans

Construction on the Highway 101/Union Valley Parkway Interchange project will continue with a pile-driving operation for a three-week period beginning Wednesday from 7 a.m. to 4 p.m., weather permitting.

This pile-driving operation will occur Monday through Friday.

Property owners in the adjacent area can expect this road work to be noisy and should prepare accordingly for this temporary phase of construction.

The $10.3 million project is partially funded ($4.8 million) by Proposition 1B, a $19.9 billion transportation bond approved by voters in 2006 and ($4.8 million) from the Santa Barbara County Association of Governments Measure A, a local sales tax measure for transportation projects. The contractor for the project is Granite Construction.

Caltrans reminds motorists to move over and slow down when driving through Caltrans construction zones.

Noozhawk Asks: What’s Your Question?

Welcome to Noozhawk Asks, a new feature in which you ask the questions, you help decide what Noozhawk investigates, and you work with us to find the answers.

Here’s how it works: You share your questions with us in the nearby box. In some cases, we may work with you to find the answers. In others, we may ask you to vote on your top choices to help us narrow the scope. And we’ll be regularly asking you for your feedback on a specific issue or topic.

We also expect to work together with the reader who asked the winning questions to find the answer together. Noozhawk’s objective is to come at questions from a place of curiosity and openness, and we believe a transparent collaboration is the key to achieve it.

The results of our investigation will be published here in this Noozhawk Asks section. Once or twice a month, we plan to do a review of what was asked and answered.

Thanks for asking!
