San Ysidro Road Pathway Construction Scheduled to Begin Sept. 6

$321,910 project includes a pathway, drainage improvements, curb ramps and landscaping

The Santa Barbara County Public Works Department announced Friday that construction is scheduled to begin on the San Ysidro Road Pathway in the First District on Sept. 6.

The county Board of Supervisors awarded the $321,910 construction contract to D-Kal Engineering on Aug. 2.

The project includes construction of a decomposed granite pathway, drainage improvements, curb ramps and landscaping on the west side of San Ysidro Road between North Jameson Lane and Montecito Union School.

Construction hours will be 7 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday through Friday. Project funding is provided by the Federal Safe Routes to Schools grant program and South Coast Measure A, Alternative Transportation.

“The construction of this pathway, which was made possible through a federal Safe Routes to School grant, will be a significant enhancement to the safety of children walking to school, as well as other pedestrians in Montecito,” First District Supervisor Salud Carbajal said. “It is the result of a partnership between Montecito Union School, the greater Montecito community, the county and other stakeholders, which achieves these significant safety improvements, while maintaining the rural character of Montecito.”

— Eric Pearson is a road construction manager for the Santa Barbara County Public Works Department.

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!
