North County Road Resurfacing Gets Green Light

Santa Barbara County will begin two road rehabilitation projects at various locations in north Santa Barbara County beginning this month and ending in June.

The 2017-18 North County Pavement Rehabilitation project will resurface about 12 lane miles in Vandenberg Village, Mission Hills, Orcutt, Santa Ynez and Sisquoc.

The estimated construction cost of $1.7 million is partially funded by Senate Bill 1 and Measure A funds. These funds are used to help maintain, preserve and improve roads throughout Santa Barbara County.

The county Board of Supervisors awarded the construction contract for the project to Souza Construction, Inc.

The Ray Road Rehabilitation project will reconstruct and resurface Ray Road from Betteravia Road to Brown Road. Construction will begin April 30. Portions of Ray Road will be closed during construction and motorists will be detoured to Brown Road.

The contract for this work was awarded to CalPortland Construction, Inc. The estimated construction cost of $450,000 is partially funded by Senate Bill 1 and Measure A funds. The project is funded through the current 2017-18 fiscal year.

Construction for all areas is expected to 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. Traffic signs will announce any significant delays or temporary road closures.

Please observe construction area signs and prepare to stop when traveling through the work site for the safety of crew members and motoring public.

The Santa Barbara County Public Works Department thanks local residents and the traveling public for their patience and cooperation during the construction period.

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!
