Restoration of pedestrian trails along North Refugio Road in Santa Ynez is officially underway after members of the community and local leaders gathered Tuesday at Santa Ynez Valley Union High School to kick off the first phase of the project with a groundbreaking ceremony.

The multiphase Refugio Road Trails Restoration Project that ultimately seeks to connect N. Refugio Road at Highway 246 to Baseline Avenue in Santa Ynez, will start with the construction of trails on both sides of Refugio Road headed north from the high school to Samantha Drive.

The plan is proposed to connect Santa Ynez neighborhoods to schools and recreational opportunities while creating safer buffer zones.
