As part of the ongoing renovation of Santa Barbara MTD’s Transit Center in downtown Santa Barbara, the next phase of the project will require a sidewalk closure, which will begin Thursday, April 30.

The public sidewalk, curb and gutters will be replaced on the east side of the 1000 block of Chapala Street in the area between the Temporary Transit Center facilities and the exit driveway to City Lot 3. To facilitate this work, the sidewalk will be closed between Carrillo Street and the Temporary Transit Center facilities. The closure is expected to last about four weeks.

Additionally, the bus Lines 3 and 20 that generally load and unload in Zone A (in front of the old Greyhound property, near the corner of Carrillo and Chapala streets) will be moved to Zone D (area near Riley’s Flowers just past Figueroa Street). These changes will be in effect all days of the week and all times of day.

Pedestrians who want to reach the temporary Transit Center and Zones B, C and D will need to approach via the Figueroa/Chapala street intersection.
