Public safety is, of course, a top focus for the City of Goleta. Ensuring safety for Goleta residents comes in many forms. One of those forms includes city infrastructure and transportation.
That’s why we are nearly done with the process of replacing the Los Carneros Road bridge that crosses over the Union Pacific Railroad at the southbound 101 on- and off-ramps. The project began in February 2014. The ramps reopened on April 1, 2015. The project is expected to be completed by the summer of 2015. Read more about the improvements in our latest Monarch Press.
Learn some background about the bridge, why this is an important safety measure, and what’s planned. This project offers more than improved safety and updated infrastructure. Find out how this project benefits Goleta residents with added convenience. Also find the answer to several frequently asked questions, such as, “How will this affect me?” You can get information about traffic impacts, too.
We’ve also provided additional resources to make sure you and your neighbors can get the information you need to make this project as smooth as possible for everyone:
- The fact sheet allows you to download a PDF containing much of the important information from this website.
- At the project updates and photos and videos pages, you can follow the project’s progress.
- Here’s an 11 second video of the bridge demolition (courtesy of MNS Engineering.)
Of course, if you have any questions or concerns, please visit our contact page. As the public information officer for the City of Goleta, I am happy to serve as your contact for the project. I can be reached via email at firstname.lastname@example.org or at (805) 961–7507.
