A project to replace the San Jose Creek Bridge on US 101 in Goleta will continue with a full 24/7 closure of the northbound on-ramp at Patterson Avenue tomorrow, Tuesday, Nov. 14 through Thursday, Nov. 16.
The on-ramp is being closed in anticipation of rainfall in the area this week. The ramp is expected to re-open when the storm moves out of the area.
Contractor for the $20 million project is M.C.M. Construction, Inc. of North Highlands, California. The bridge replacement project is expected to be complete in June 2026.
