Lane Closures Planned as Work Begins on Goleta’s San Jose Creek Project

Traffic control will affect Highway 217 and South Kellogg Avenue starting Tuesday

Work on the San Jose Creek Capacity Improvement & Fish Passage Project will require lane closures on Highway 217 and South Kellogg Avenue in the coming weeks.

On Tuesday, Feb. 21, traffic control measures will be in place from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. while k-rail is set in anticipation of the clearing and grubbing operations.

Highway 217 will be reduced to one lane between Hollister Avenue and the end of the project area (approximately one mile south of Hollister) for the duration of the project.

During the week of Feb. 27, traffic control will be installed on South Kellogg Avenue south of Hollister. South Kellogg will only be open for southbound traffic between Kellogg Way and Thornwood Drive. Northbound traffic will be directed to use Thornwood to Pine Avenue and back to Hollister.

— Valerie Kushnerov is the city of Goleta’s public information officer.

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!
