The project will widen this stretch of Storke Road between Phelps Road to the city limits, increasing the number of lanes from two lanes to four lanes. The project will also include a Class II bike lane and may include a Class I bike lane along the east side.
Purpose and Need
The widening of Storke Road is necessary to accommodate the additional traffic that will be generated by new UCSB student housing projects proposed south of Whittier Drive.
Funding for this project is through the Goleta Transportation Improvement Program (GTIP).
