Repairs to Begin on Mission Canyon Road Bridge at Mission Creek

The Mission Canyon Road bridge at Mission Creek, near Rocky Nook Park, soon will undergo repairs to the stone guard rail wall on the south side of the bridge next to the cantilevered pedestrian walkway.

The wall has been damaged by vehicles. Schock Contracting, hired by the city of Santa Barbara, will disassemble the damaged sandstone wall and reassemble the pieces into a new section of wall matching the original wall.

Work is scheduled to begin Jan. 5 and should last two to three weeks.

The project will require closing one traffic lane and the walkway; however, one traffic lane will remain open and a temporary pedestrian walkway will be provided during construction. The entrance to Rocky Nook Park will remain open but may be subject to traffic control. 

Signs and precautionary warnings will be placed along roads approaching the bridge on Los Olivos Street near the Santa Barbara Mission as well as on Mission Canyon Road. (Note that the road name changes at the bridge, from Los Olivos Street to Mission Canyon Road.)

For more information, call streets manager Rick Fulmer at 805.564.5394.

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!
