Two Goleta City Capital Improvement projects, the Ekwill Street & Fowler Road Extensions and Hollister Avenue Bridge Relocation, are getting closer to becoming a reality. On Monday, Feb. 6, construction work will begin to relocate utilities that are in conflict with the projects.
When completed, the Ekwill Street & Fowler Road Extensions and Hollister Avenue Bridge Relocation projects will provide new east-west access across Old Town Goleta, two roundabouts on Hollister Avenue at the interchange with State Route 217, and complete flood control capacity improvements.
The upcoming utility relocation work, will impact traffic on Hollister Avenue between S.R. 217 and S. Kellogg Avenue for about four weeks. Alternating eastbound and westbound lane closures will be necessary to facilitate the relocation work.
Construction work will take place 8:30 a.m.-4:30 p.m. Monday-Friday. Motorists are reminded to drive cautiously through the work zones and are urged to use alternate routes if possible.
