Improvements at Clark Avenue, Hwy 101 in Orcutt nearing completion

  • Updated

Reconstruction of the northbound Highway 101 on- and offramps to accommodate a new signalized intersection at the Clark Avenue interchange in Orcutt is nearing completion, a spokesman for Caltrans District 5 said.

Work is expected to be completed in August.

The project is entering its final phase with the installation of temporary stop signs at the northbound on- and offramps that have been reconstructed to improve safety at the new signalized intersection, spokesman Jim Shivers said.

Work also includes a minor widening of the southbound on- and offramps and repaving Clark Avenue adjacent to the freeway, Shivers said.

Santa Barbara County officials expect the improvements to provide improved traffic flow for a proposed large commercial project on the north side of Clark and a smaller commercial project proposed for the south side of the avenue just west of the freeway.

Granite Construction of Santa Barbara is the contractor for the $2 million project.
