Work to Begin in April on De la Vina-Figueroa Intersection Improvements

The City of Santa Barbara Public Works Department will begin construction on the De la Vina and Figueroa Intersection Improvements project in April.

Work will continue through June. Construction hours are limited to weekdays from 7 a.m. to 5 p.m.

New street lights will be installed and curb extensions will be constructed at all four corners. The project was approved by the City Council on March 5 to improve pedestrian safety.

Construction activity and equipment noise are expected during work hours. One traffic lane will remain open on De la Vina Street at all times; Figueroa Street will be subject to intermittent closures. Access to area businesses will be provided; however, traffic delays are expected, and motorists are advised to take alternate routes.

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!
