Highway 101 Northbound On-Ramp at Fairview Avenue Set to Reopen Wednesday

The northbound on-ramp of Highway 101 at Fairview Avenue is expected to reopen at 10 p.m. Wednesday, Dec. 17, weather permitting.

This six-month closure was part of the Goleta Drainage Project to improve the capacity of two large drainage culverts along Las Vegas Creek and San Pedro Creek near Highway 101.

The reopening of the northbound Fairview Avenue on-ramp will result in Highway 101 returning to its original alignment in both directions.

This project will increase the water capacity and prevent flooding north of Calle Real and Highway 101. This project will include the reconstruction of Highway 101 southbound off-ramp at Fairview Avenue.

Caltrans is the lead agency for this project, in partnership with the Santa Barbara County Flood Control District and support from the City of Goleta.

The contractor for this $16.6 million project is Flatiron West Inc. of San Marcos. This project is expected to be completed in 2017.

Caltrans reminds motorists to move over and slow down when driving through highway 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!
