    UPDATED: Highway 101: Carpinteria to Santa Barbara Construction Update – December 3 – 16, 2023

    Timeframe:  December 3 – 16, 2023 *2-week update REVISED

    Spotlight:  In the Padaro segment, the new northbound off-ramp at S Padaro/Santa Claus Ln will open on December 8th. 

    In Summerland, crews are finishing up construction activities, including some finish grinding for pavement. In Montecito, lanes have been restriped to shift lanes for median construction and open an auxiliary lane between the southbound on-ramp at Olive Mill Rd and off-ramp at San Ysidro Rd. The auxiliary lane enables easier merging on and off the freeway.
