Highway 101 Lane/Ramp Closures in Montecito Begin Monday for Caltrans Project

A project to replace concrete slabs along Highway 101 between Olive Mill and San Ysidro roads in Montecito will begin on Monday, April 13 and require various lane and ramp closures, Caltrans officials have announced.

The No. 2 (right) lane northbound will be closed overnight Monday through Wednesday from 8 p.m. until 5 a.m. On Wednesday/Thursday, the No. 2 (right) lane southbound will be closed from 8 p.m. until 7 a.m. One lane in each direction will remain open during this roadwork.

In addition, the northbound Highway 101 Olive Mill and San Ysidro Road off-ramps will be closed at various times with traffic detoured to Hermosillo Road.

Electronic message signs will be posted to alert and direct motorists, who can expect delays up to 15 minutes.

The contractor for this $810,000 emergency project is Peterson-Chase General from Irvine. It is scheduled for completion by the end of June.

Caltrans reminds motorists to move over and slow down when driving through highway construction zones.

For more information on this project and for traffic updates on other Caltrans projects in Santa Barbara County, residents may call the District 5 toll free number at 805.568.0858 or click here.

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!
