Night-time Repaving Project Begins Monday for Upper State, De la Vina Streets

Traffic lanes to remain open but roadwork to last into July

A repaving project on upper State and De la Vina streets begins Monday and likely will last into July, Santa Barbara officials say.

Blocks of each street will be prepped by removing manhole covers and grinding down the asphalt, the streets will then be repaved and the manholes reinstalled and brought back up to grade, said Tim Gaasch, Public Works Department supervising engineer. The areas will be State Street between La Cumbre Road south to De la Vina and from that intersection south to West Alamar Avenue.

Construction will be conducted primarily at night, from 9 p.m. to 6 a.m., with one lane of traffic open in both directions at all times.

It’s likely the last phase of construction will go into July, but perhaps only the first week or so, Gaasch said.

Traffic speed through the area may be reduced and nearby businesses and residents may experience noise from jackhammers, grinders and other construction-related equipment. The project, funded by the 2009 stimulus bill, does not include any changes to the State and De la Vina intersection.

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!
