Santa Barbara County has begun several road rehabilitation projects that will end in June, weather permitting.
The 2018-19 Pavement Rehabilitation project will resurface 19 lane miles in the unincorporated areas of Santa Barbara, Santa Ynez, Los Olivos, Los Alamos, Lompoc and Orcutt.
Santa Ynez Valley road sections being repaired include Calzada Avenue between Baseline Avenue and Manzana Street and Edison Street between Lindero Street and Highway 154. Near Lompoc, they include Purisima Road near Rucker Road, and in Orcutt they include Dominion Road near Palmer Road.
The estimated construction cost of $3.1 million is funded by the county’s General Fund and money from California Senate Bill 1.
The County Board of Supervisors awarded construction contracts to Granite Construction in the 2nd District, Souza Engineering Contracting in the 3rd and 4th districts, and Ferravanti Grading and Paving in the 5th District.
