Five Points Roundabout to Close Saturday

City crews will replace the road surface during daytime hours

The roundabout at the intersection of East Montectio Street, Salinas Street, Alameda Padre Serra and Sycamore Canyon Road — commonly known as “Five Points” — in Santa Barbara will be closed Saturday, Oct. 9, for road construction.

The construction will replace the road surface and is part of the APS project that has been ongoing since August. The Five Points roundabout is the final component of the project that will receive a slurry seal application, to maintain and restore the road surface.

Construction will be conducted from 7 a.m. and 5 p.m. Saturday. Road closures and detours will be required during construction; but emergency vehicle access will be maintained at all times.

The project, funded by the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act, will help maintain the city’s transportation infrastructure.

When construction is complete, a smooth and safe driving surface for travel will be provided along the APS corridor.

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!
