SANTA BARBARA, CA – June 10, 2010 - On Monday, June 14, 2010, and continuing through July 2010, the City of Santa Barbara, Public Works Department, will replace the street surface on upper State Street and De la Vina Street. Construction will affect most blocks on State Street from La Cumbre Road south to De la Vina Street and all blocks on De la Vina Street from State Street south to West Alamar Avenue. The existing street will be ground down and replaced with an asphalt overlay to restore the street surface.
Construction will be conducted at night between the hours of 9:00 PM and 6:00 AM. One lane of traffic will be provided in both directions at all times during construction; however, traffic speed may be reduced. Residents and businesses in the area may experience noise from jackhammers, grinders, truck back-up alarms and other equipment noise associated with street construction.
The new asphalt overlay is funded by the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act (ARRA) and will maintain the City’s transportation infrastructure. When construction is complete, a smooth and safe driving surface for travel will be provided along the upper State Street and De La Vina Street corridors. The Public Works Department appreciates the community’s patience and cooperation during the construction.
