Highway 101: Summerland

Along the freeway, crews will fence environmentally-sensitive areas, remove old cormorant nests and trim tree limbs, install underground storm drains, and install temporary highway lighting. Crews will remove old safety barriers from the median and then excavate old pavement and soil.

Sheffield Drive Interchange

Crews have finished installing underground supports (piles) for this stage of work. Crews will continue to build footings, install rebar (see photo above), and pour concrete for columns, side supports (abutments), and retaining walls for the new bridges in the median. 

Evans Avenue Undercrossing

Crews will continue excavating and installing underground supports (piles) between the Highway 101 bridges for the new upcoming bridge. Please expect daytime noise when crews drive piles for the bridge supports (in January). Temporary lighting is being installed near the on- and off-ramps at Evans Avenue.

Highway 101: Carpinteria

Crews will continue placing rebar and concrete as part of the new Continuously Reinforced Concrete Pavement for new lanes and ramps near Reynolds Ave. Crews will also pour concrete for improvements at the intersection of Carpinteria and Reynolds Avenues.

Southbound Hwy 101 between Carpinteria & Santa Ynez Avenues

Crews will excavate and install underground supports (see photo below) for new wall sections. Work will then progress to building the wall footings and rebar installation. On Bailard Avenue, crews will pave the southbound areas between the freeway lanes and ramps.
