Construction Updates

As part of our ongoing effort to keep the community up to date on the Highway 101: Linden and Casitas Pass Project, we send out regular project construction updates via email. The following is the current construction update.

Timeframe

August 2 - 15, 2020

**Safety reminder: Please be mindful of pedestrians and bicyclists throughout town. As new bridges and street sections open up, please drive slowly and share the lanes with bicyclists until new bike lanes open.**

Scheduled Construction

Closures

  • Northbound Highway 101
    • Sunday nights, 9:00 pm - 5:00 am, 1 lane: Bailard Ave to Evans Ave
    • Monday - Thursday days, 9:00 am - 3:00 pm, off-ramp at Casitas Pass Rd, on-ramp at Linden Ave
    • Monday - Thursday nights, 8:00 pm - 5:00 am, 1 lane: Bailard Ave to Evans Ave
  • Southbound Highway 101
    • Sunday nights, 10:00 pm - 7:30 am, 1 lane: Evans Ave to Bailard Ave
    • Monday - Thursday days, 9:00 am - 3:00 pm, on- and off-ramps at Casitas Pass Rd, off-ramp at Linden Ave
    • Monday - Thursday nights, 8:00 pm - 7:00 am, 1 lane: Evans Ave to Bailard Ave
  • Northbound Highway 101 on-ramp at Casitas Pass Rd
    • Temporarily closed for up to 5 weeks
    • This closure allows crews to shift northbound freeway lanes and install Continuously Reinforced Concrete Pavement (CRCP) on part of northbound Highway 101. CRCP is a quieter roadway surface because it lacks horizontal seams across the lanes and has a long lifespan.
    • A detour route is signed on Via Real through the new roundabout to the northbound Highway 101 on-ramp at Linden Ave.


*Please note: Crews will have alternating ramp closures as noted above. Consecutive ramps in the same direction will not be closed at the same time. In preparation for upcoming work between Carpinteria and Summerland, crews will be potholing pavement on the lanes and shoulders at night during the week of August 9th to test pavement densities.


Highway 101: Carpinteria

  • Franklin & Santa Monica Creek Bridges
    • Crews will continue work on the approach slabs leading up to the bridges.
  • Sound wall: southbound Highway 101 south of Carpinteria Ave
    • Crews have finished installing underground supports for the new wall. Work continues on the concrete pile cap.
  • Highway 101
    • Median: Crews will continue preparing the area for Continuously Reinforced Concrete Pavement.


Highway 101: Linden and Casitas Pass

  • Highway 101, Linden Ave, Via Real, Casitas Pass Rd & the Ogan Rd roundabout
    • Crews are continuing work on electrical connections, sign installation, a bus shelter, new stairs from Via Real down to the updated bike path, and final construction items. The majority of improvements are open for use but will have temporary closures as needed for finishing work.
    • Old Linden Avenue
      • Crews will repave the roadway starting at 7:00 am on Monday, August 3rd. Please expect the roadway to be closed to vehicles until paving is complete.
