Safer Routes to School and Work

The City is pleased to have completed two projects over the last month to improve pedestrian access within the City.

The Cathedral Oaks Santa Marguerita Crosswalk Improvements added a pedestrian-activated push button that will activate solar lights in the crosswalk. In addition, there was some reconfiguration of the traffic lanes. The City painted the first green lanes within Santa Barbara County. The solid green bike lane delineates the bike lane. The striped/dashed green area indicates a transition area as a second lane opens up and the bike lane moves back to the far right. The use of the green color is used to help further alert drivers that they are crossing over a bike lane. The dashed lines also give a visual cue to bicyclists warning them that vehicles may cross over the bike lane striping in these areas.

Additionally, the City completed a sidewalk project on South Patterson Avenue between Debbie Road and Hollister Avenue where there was no existing sidewalk. The City received Measure A grant funds to help fund this project to fill the gap in the sidewalk.
