Ceremony to Mark Completion of Route 154 Project

SBCAG funded the project with Measure D, Santa Barbara County's half-cent transportation sales tax

At 10 a.m. Wednesday at Vista Point near the Cold Spring Canyon Bridge, the Santa Barbara County Association of Governments will officially recognize the completion of operational and safety improvements on Route 154 from Santa Barbara north to the Route 246 intersection.

At the ceremony, residents are invited to review and discuss project components with project staff from SBCAG and Caltrans.

Speakers will include Supervisor Doreen Farr, SBCAG Executive Director Jim Kemp and Wildland Residents Association President Mike Williams.

SBCAG funded the project entirely with Measure D, Santa Barbara County’s half-cent transportation sales tax.

Since 1989, SBCAG has invested nearly $26 million in Measure D funds to construct safety and operational improvements on Route 154, including new interchanges with Highway 101 at the north and south junctions and a first phase of operational and safety improvements using Measure D funds in 1997.

— Kirsten Ayars is a community outreach liaison for the Santa Barbara County Association of Governments.

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!
