Construction began Sept. 15, on a repair project for a small portion of the San Jose Creek Channel; it is expected to take about one month to complete.
The San Jose Creek Emergency Channel Repair Project replaces a portion of the existing channel floor that was damaged in winter storms in 2017 and was temporarily repaired at the end of 2017.
The project will result in a permanent repair and will install new articulated concrete mats onto the channel flood consistent with the original channel replacement and fish-passage project completed in 2014.
“When the San Jose Creek Emergency Channel Repair Project is completed, the city will have restored the improved portion of the San Jose Creek Channel to its previous design condition in 2014, which will return the facility to a condition ready to properly accommodate flood waters in the channel,” said Goleta Public Works Director Charlie Ebeling.
The city awarded the project to James C. Cushman Inc. of Santa Barbara. Bengal Engineering Inc. will provide construction oversight for the city. City staff will be working with the contractor to minimize impacts to the public. There are no traffic impacts anticipated resulting from the construction activities.
