This project replaced the Los Carneros Overhead Bridge over the Union Pacific Railroad. The new bridge provides two through lanes in each direction, a free right turn lane from northbound Los Carneros to southbound Route 101, Class II bike lanes in each direction and a sidewalk on the west side. The plant establishment period for new landscaping installed with the project will end in June of 2016.
Purpose and Need
This project replaced a structurally deficient bridge and resolve capacity deficiencies for northbound Los Carneros Road to southbound onramp to Route 101, and enhance bicyclist safety on the bridge.
Funding for this project was a combination of Highway Bridge Program (HBP), and Goleta Transportation Improvement Program (GTIP) funds.
The project was completed in April 2015 and the project is being closed out with Caltrans.
