Over the next four years, Caltrans and its partners will construct a six-mile carpool lane in each direction for vehicles with two or more passengers, along US 101 from Mobil Pier Road in Ventura County to Casitas Pass Road in Santa Barbara County. Additional improvements include: a pedestrian undercrossing in La Conchita, concrete barriers, southbound bike lane, median landscaping, reconstruction of existing drainage, closing existing median openings and installing Intelligent Transportation System elements such as underground vehicle detectors and Close Circuit TV cameras.
The $102 million project will alleviate congestion, encourage carpooling and improve air quality. The project is expected to begin spring 2012 and be completed in late 2015.
Caltrans has a multi-faceted outreach program in place to inform the public about the construction effort.
