Another Award for the Hollister Class I Bike Path!

The Hollister Class I Bike Path/Multi-Purpose Path was completed in early January but continues earning accolades. Earlier this year it was named Santa Barbara County Project of the Year by the Santa Barbara-Ventura Branch of ASCE (American Society of Civil Engineers) and most recently the Board of Directors of the Los Angeles Section of the American Society of Civil Engineers selected it as their Bikeways and Trails Project of the Year! The award recognizes a project that has improved or implemented a bikeway and/or multi-use trail (pedestrians and bicycles) in order to increase and promote community connectivity and encourage non-motorized transportation. The 14-foot wide concrete path along Hollister Avenue from Pacific Oaks Road to Ellwood Elementary School makes travel to and from the school more accessible for students living in the area, and also serves UCSB students, recreational riders and commuters. The path promotes active and sustainable transportation for all. Click here to learn more about the Hollister Class I Bike Path/Multi-Purpose Path.
