Calle Real Sidewalk Phase 2 Begins Construction

The Santa Barbara County Board of Supervisors has awarded Community Development Block Grant Program Calle Real Sidewalk Phase 2 for $237,000 as part of its Americans with Disabilities Act safety compliant access to county facilities for the local residents.

Construction is scheduled to begin March 21, 2016, and should be completed in May 2016, contingent upon weather conditions.

J and T Engineering and Construction was awarded the contract and the county’s Public Works Department will inspect and administer the construction of this project.

The construction cost is $237,000 with 57 percent from the Community Development Block Grant and 43 percent from the Transportation Development Act sources.

These funds are being used to help upgrade existing facilities to current safety standards and ADA compliant standards.

This project will construct a 640 foot concrete sidewalk in the unincorporated County of Santa Barbara on the north side of Calle Real from Camino del Remedio to San Antonio Road. 

This is the final section in an ADA accessible pedestrian path connection from the county campus all the way east to the City of Santa Barbara.

Construction will occur Monday through Friday between the hours of 7 a.m. and 5 p.m. 

Drivers should be aware of delays, bike detours, reduced speed zones and increased traffic control when driving through the construction sites.

Public Works Department officials wish to thank local residents, pedestrians and the traveling public for their patience and cooperation during the construction of this project. 

For a schedule of the project, please visit the project website PWSB.net.

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!
