SR 126 Safety Enhancement Project

The California Department of Transportation (Caltrans) is formally initiating studies for improvements to State Route 126 (SR-126).  The purpose of the effort is to enhance safety.  The proposed project is located on SR-126 between Hallock Drive (PM 13.14) in the City of Santa Paula and E Street (PM 20.11) in the City of Fillmore in Ventura County.  SR-126 provides an east-west connection between US Highway101 in Ventura County and Interstate 5 in Los Angeles County and the project length is approximately 7 miles. 

There are currently two alternatives for this project: a No Build Alternative and a Build Alternative with two Design Options.

Design Option 1: Concrete Median Barrier
Design Option 2: Raised Median Island with Visual Markers

Common Features of Both Design Options:

  1. Construct roundabouts
  2. Widen road curves
  3. Acceleration/deceleration lane at railroad crossings
  4. Construct retaining walls

Improve existing highway access including driveways at various locations
