Fairview Avenue / US 101 Intersection Sidewalk Infill Project Update

The Fairview Avenue / US 101 Intersection Sidewalk Infill Project is wrapping up after several weeks of construction. The project will improve pedestrian and bicyclist safety in the area by constructing new sidewalk to fill the sidewalk gap along the north side of S. Fairview Avenue leading to the signalized intersection at the northbound US 101 off-ramp.

The project also includes reconstruction of existing sidewalk necessary to conform to the existing bicycle and pedestrian ramp connecting Fairview Avenue and Calle Real. The City secured Measure A grant funding for the project and is excited to complete construction. Santa Barbara County Association of Governments (SBCAG) is the administrator of Measure A, a local transportation sales tax measure that was approved by 79% of Santa Barbara. Information on Measure A is available at www.measurea.net. The City awarded the project to Lash Construction, and MNS Engineers provided construction oversight for the City.
