The Project would construct pedestrian and bicycle improvements on East Cabrillo Boulevard between Los Patos Way and the Cabrillo Interchange, to provide safe coastal access for pedestrians and bicyclists. The Project would reconfigure the intersection of East Cabrillo Boulevard and Los Patos Way and replace the existing Union Pacific Railroad (UPRR) Bridge.
The Project is located along East Cabrillo Boulevard between Los Patos Way and the US Highway 101 southbound ramps.
The City of Santa Barbara has entered into a Memorandum of Understanding with the Santa Barbara County Association of Governments to manage the Project design, which is primarily funded through a Highway Safety Improvement Program (HSIP) grant and State Transportation Improvement Program funds. Over the coming years, construction funds will be sought from competitive state and federal grant sources that fund roadway safety, pedestrian, and bicycle improvements.
Funding for construction has not yet been identified, so there is no construction timeframe yet. City staff plans to apply for construction funding through future available grants, including the next Active Transportation Program and HSIP grant cycles.
