Santa Barbara, CA - Beginning in late July and continuing through August 2010, the City of Santa Barbara, Public Works Department, will begin construction to replace the street surface on Alameda Padre Serra (APS), from Sycamore Canyon Road west to Los Olivos Street, and on Mountain Drive from Los Olivos Street, east to Foothill Road (State Route 192). Construction will also affect Garcia Road and East De La Guerra Street below APS. The streets will receive a “cape seal” treatment; a three step process involving pavement preparation, chip seal, and slurry seal application to maintain and restore the street surface.
Construction will be conducted Monday through Friday, between the hours of 8:00 a.m. and 5:00 p.m. Full street closure and detours will be required during construction; however, emergency vehicle access will be maintained at all times. Residents in the area may experience noise from grinders, truck back-up alarms, and other equipment noise associated with street construction.
This maintenance project, funded by the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act, will help maintain the City’s transportation infrastructure. When construction is complete, a smooth and safe driving surface for travel will be provided along the APS and Mountain Drive corridors. The Public Works Department appreciates the community’s patience and cooperation during the construction.
