Cabrillo Interchange

The City is leading work to replace the Cabrillo Boulevard railroad undercrossing between Highway 101 and Los Patos Way to improve circulation for vehicles, bicycles, and pedestrians. This project will provide safety and access improvements on a key part of the California Coastal Trail in Santa Barbara.

At Los Patos Way and Cabrillo Boulevard, the City will also build a new roundabout to improve circulation between the beach, Montecito, the neighborhood, and local businesses. The roundabout is anticipated to begin construction in 2022, and the railroad undercrossing improvements will be built during the freeway improvements in the area anticipated to begin in 2023 depending on funding.
