The project installed solar powered LED lighting along a 1,750 foot portion of the Maria Ygnacio Bike Trail from the Hollister Avenue undercrossing north to the trail bridge crossing of Maria Ygnacio Creek. Construction was completed by Schock Contracting Corp.
Purpose and Need
The County of Santa Barbara has installed lighting along a portion of the Maria Ygnacio Bike Trail located within the County limits (to the north and south of the proposed project). However, the trail remains unlit along the portion which passes through the City of Goleta. The addition of reliable safety lighting through the City of Goleta’s portion of the bike path will complete the project providing lighting along the entire bike path and will dramatically enhance the safety for commuters using the facility during dark hours.
