City Crew Road Repairs UpdateJuly 9, 2018
When Measure C funding became available on April 1, 2018, the City immediately began critical street and road repairs. In April, City Streets crews repaved Gibraltar Road north of El Cielito Road and replaced old storm drain culverts, with all work completed in time for the Amgen Tour of California. City Streets crews also made much-needed repairs on Anacapa Street between Anapamu and Carrillo Streets to address areas of failing pavement. The repairs have provided a smoother ride for both vehicles and bicyclists on one of the City’s most heavily traveled downtown streets. In June, City Streets crews also began work on Anapamu Street near Santa Barbara High School, working closely with the City Arborist to make road repairs while preserving the historic Italian Stone Pine trees in the area.
