Highway Construction Projects Focus of SYVVA Presentation

The Santa Ynez Valley Visitors Association is offering a free presentation on the construction projects on Highways 101 and 154.

The presentation will be at 8:30 a.m. June 24 at the Santa Ynez Valley Marriott Hotel, 555 McMurray Road in Buellton.

The guest speaker will be Kirsten Ayars, a community outreach project liaison for CalTrans and the Santa Barbara County Association of Governments.

The public will learn facts about Highway 101 and 154 construction improvements starting this month in the Santa Ynez Valley and Santa Barbara — and how they will affect residents, visitors and business travel in the coming months and years. Registration and complimentary coffee and danishes will be available at 8:30 a.m., with the presentation starting at 9 a.m.

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!
