    Infrastructure Repair Work in Goleta to Take Place Over the Summer

    Projects to Fix Damage from February 2024 Storm

    Work is about to begin to repair the city’s infrastructure that was damaged in the February 2024 storm. The atmospheric river storm that occurred on February 4, 2024, caused significant damage in Goleta, including flooding on public streets, open spaces, and other property in the City; damage to public rights-of-way, including storm drain infrastructure; downed trees blocking sidewalks and streets; road closures; and disruption of public services.

    Five public infrastructure repair projects will take place between the end of June and August.

    The Ellwood Mesa Emergency Access Road project is scheduled to start the week of June 24th and will take approximately one month to complete. The project is located along the trail to Ellwood Mesa off Santa Barbara Shores Drive and will involve replacing the culvert and access road across Devereux Creek. Ellwood Mesa Open Space will remain open with detour signs posted to avoid the construction area. If you have any questions or comments, please contact Project Manager Michael Winnewisser at (805) 690-5120 or mwinnewisser@cityofgoleta.org.

Located between the 7500 and 7600 blocks of Newport Drive at a small creek, the project will involve repairing the southern end of a box culvert with new piles, foundation and wingwalls and replacing the adjacent sidewalk that has been undermined by storm flows. The work will mostly occur within the creek with minor traffic and pedestrian impacts expected on Newport Drive.

    All projects have approved permits and biologists will be performing pre-work surveys for sensitive wildlife species to avoid any impacts. The City thanks you in advance for your patience.
