Highway 101 Closures in Goleta Set for Next Week

Detours will be in place as work on the Cathedral Oaks Road realignment project continues

A project to realign Cathedral Oaks Road with Hollister Avenue and replace the Highway 101 overcrossing at Hollister Avenue and the Ellwood Overhead at the Union Pacific train tracks will result in the following closures next week:

» A full closure of southbound Highway 101 from 9 p.m. to 5 a.m. Wednesday, Sept. 15. Southbound traffic will detour onto Hollister Avenue to the Storke/Glen Annie Road Overcrossing.

» A full closure of northbound Highway 101 from 9 p.m. to 5 a.m. Thursday, Sept. 16. Northbound traffic will detour onto Calle Real to the Hollister Avenue on-ramp.

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!
