Highway 101 Closures Planned for Union Valley Parkway Interchange Project

The Highway 101/Union Valley Parkway interchange project will result in overnight full closures of Highway 101 this week from 9 p.m. to 6 a.m. for the removal of framework for the new overcrossing at Highway 101 at Union Valley Parkway.

On Monday and Tuesday nights, motorists heading southbound will detour from Highway 101 at Betteravia Avenue to Broadway (Highway 135) before reaching Highway 101 at Clark Avenue.

On Wednesday and Thursday nights, motorists heading northbound will detour from Highway 101 at Clark Avenue to Broadway (Highway 135) before reaching Highway 101 at Betteravia Avenue.

This $10.3 million project is partially funded ($4.8 million) by Proposition 1B, a $19.9 billion transportation bond approved by voters in 2006, and ($4.8 million) from the Santa Barbara County Association of Governments Measure A program.

Caltrans urges motorists to move over and slow down in construction zones.

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!
