This project will construct a Class I bike path adjacent to San Jose Creek, from Calle Real to Hollister Avenue. The project includes all required bridges and right of way acquisition, and necessary improvements to cross Highway 101 and the Union Pacific Railroad (UPRR).
The project has been broken into 2 segments:
- Segment 1 – Armitos Avenue to Hollister Avenue: This segment was identified as a stand-alone project with independent utility to be constructed along with the new Old Town Hollister/Kellogg Park.
- Segment 2 – Calle Real to Armitos Ave: This segment requires coordination and approvals from Caltrans (undercrossing at 101) and UPRR (undercrossing at the UPRR bridge over San Jose Creek).
Purpose and Need
To provide a commuter bike route and recreational facility from residential areas north of Highway 101 to commercial areas south of the freeway in Old Town Goleta and UCSB. This project will connect to the San Jose Creek Bike Path South Project as well as the existing Class I through the Maravilla development north of Calle Real.
Strategic Plan Goal

Funding for preliminary engineering and design for this project is from the Regional Surface Transportation Program (RSTP), Goleta Transportation Impact Program (GTIP), and also includes Community Development Block Grant (CDBG) funds for Segment 1.
