Striping Complete on Old Town Sidewalk Project

The new sidewalks in Old Town Goleta are now newly repaved and striped. The contractor painted the final coat on Friday, October 2. The remaining work is a few infill locations around utilities. The City’s contractor will re-mobilize to complete the remaining concrete patches once the utility companies – Southern California Edison (SCE), Frontier Communications, and Cox Communications – have relocated their utilities. The utility companies are currently anticipating to complete the work in October, but could be delayed pending utility workload and SCE priority emergency work that arises.

Thank you to everyone for your patience throughout the duration of this on-going project.  We are almost at the finish line and are pleased to report that the project is on time and under budget.

The 9031 Old Town Sidewalk Improvement project includes constructing sidewalk on at least one side of each street north of Hollister Avenue between South Fairview Avenue and Mallard Avenue as well as on Pine Avenue south of Hollister Avenue. The new sidewalks will connect to existing sidewalk providing a continuous path of travel. There will also be drainage improvements, tree replacements, repaving, and the construction of 39 back-in angled parking spots on Magnolia Avenue (for a net increase of approximately 17 new parking spots). Watch this video to learn more about the project.

When this project is done, the safety improvements, livability and ability to recreate in Old Town will change dramatically. We are pleased the community will be able to enjoy the improvements for years to come.
