Median Barrier Project on Highway 101 Near Goleta Now Complete

Source: Jim Shivers for Caltrans

A project to construct a median barrier and rumble strips along Highway 101 near Goleta from north of the Cathedral Oaks Road Overcrossing to two miles south of the Dos Pueblos Creek undercrossing has been completed.

This safety project will reduce the potential of cross median and run off the road collisions within this one-mile segment of Highway 101.

This median barrier is also located where Calle Real connects to Highway 101 near Vereda Leyenda and the Rancho Embarcadero community. Motorists will continue to make right turns in and out of Calle Real to access northbound Highway 101.

The contractor for this $895,000 project was Granite Construction of Santa Barbara.

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!
