Night Work on Los Carneros Bridge Project to Begin Next Week

Source: Valerie Kushnerov for the City of Goleta

The Los Carneros Overhead Bridge Replacement Project has been under way since February. Most of the work has been taking place underneath the bridge, and so it may appear that not much has been happening.

Starting next week, in addition to the regular daytime work, night work is scheduled. On Wednesday, bridge demolition will begin at 8 p.m. and will continue until 6 a.m. Thursday. Work will commence again at 8 p.m. Thursday and continue through 6 a.m. Friday. This work will remove the portion of the bridge directly over the railroad tracks.

Additional night work between the hours of 8 p.m. and 6 a.m. is tentatively scheduled for Monday through Wednesday, Aug. 18-20, to continue with demolition of the portion of the bridge that is not directly over the railroad tracks. The night work is expected to end by 6 a.m. Thursday, Aug. 21.

During both of these periods, the bridge will remain open with one lane in each direction. Please obey all signs and construction workers while driving, walking and cycling over the bridge.

Your patience is appreciated while we complete this important safety project.

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!
