Linden Avenue Overcrossing

  • Work continues on the side supports (abutments) for the remaining width of the new overcrossing. Crews will also install the rebar cage and pour concrete for the center median support.


Casitas Pass Road Overcrossing

  • Crews will continue removing dirt from the new median piles, then install rebar cages, and pour concrete. Work will occur nightly. Please see lane closures listed above.
  • Wood form work, rebar installation, and concrete pours continue for the side supports (abutments) and wing walls.
  • New northbound Highway 101 on-ramp at Casitas Pass Road
    • Grading and installation of roadway base continues. Then the initial asphalt layer will be paved in preparation for Continuously Reinforced Concrete Pavement. Continuously Reinforced Concrete Pavement is a quieter roadway surface due to the lack of horizontal seams.


Highway 101

  • Carpinteria Creek Bridges (northbound and southbound Highway 101)
    • Northbound bridge
      • Work progresses to installing wood forms and pouring concrete for the back walls. Then crews will backfill soil against the new structure.
    • Southbound bridge
      • Crews will finish removing temporary supports and then begin work on back walls.
      • Work begins on the safety barrier for the southbound bridge.
  • Crews will grade and widen Carpinteria Creek under the new Highway 101 bridges.
  • Drainage improvements continue along northbound Highway 101 under the Casitas Pass Overcrossing.


Via Real

  • Frontier Communications will be running their cables in a couple weeks.
  • Via Real will have one lane open between Casitas Pass and Vallecito Roads for the next few months.
