Isla Vista Sidewalk Project Kicks Off April 3

Construction on the 2016/17 Isla Vista Sidewalk Improvement Project is scheduled to begin April 3. Contractors will build a continuous pedestrian path on the north side of Sabado Tarde Road from Camino Corto to Camino Pescadero, for a total length of 2,400 feet.

The project also includes two sections on Sueno Road at Camino Corto and Sueno Road and Camino Del Sur. This project will create a continuous sidewalk along Sabado Tarde Road and weather-permitting should be completed no later than June 16.
Estimated construction cost is $468,000. The project is being funded through a federal Community Development Block Grant with 50 percent matching funds from UCSB.

On March 7, the county Board of Supervisors awarded the construction contract to Vince Lopez Jr. & Sons General Engineering Contractors, Inc. The county Public Works Department will inspect and administer the construction of this project.

Construction will occur 7 a.m.-5 p.m. Monday through Friday. Drivers should be aware of reduced speed zones and increased traffic control when driving through the construction sites.

Area residents who plan to leave cars parked from the corner of Camino Corto to 6750 Sabado Tarde during spring break, and will not return until after April 2, should make sure their vehicle has been removed from the areas listed above. Towing along this area will begin at 7 p.m. on April 3.

Residents with questions about the project can call the Santa Barbara County Transportation Division, 681-4990.

Public Works Department officials thank local residents, pedestrians and the traveling public for their patience and cooperation during the construction work.

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!
