De La Vina at Figueroa Intersection - Construction Starts May 8

The City is pleased to announce the start of construction to install pedestrian safety improvements at the intersection of De La Vina and Figueroa Streets. Construction is scheduled to begin May 8, 2013 and continue through July 2013. The work includes curb extensions, new access ramps, street lighting, and landscaping at all four corners.


The City’s contractor, Lash Construction, will be completing the work in phases to minimize traffic disruptions and manage the construction schedule. One traffic lane will remain open on De La Vina Street at all times; Figueroa Street will be subject to intermittent closures to expedite the work. Traffic delays are expected, and motorists and pedestrians are advised to take alternate routes.

The intersection improvements are the result of significant public input with the approval of the project by the City Council in March 2013. Construction of the project is funded by a federal Highway Safety Improvement Program grant in the amount of $325,000.

The Public Works Department thanks the public in advance for your patience and cooperation during construction. If you have comments on or questions about the project, please contact Adam Hendel , Supervising Engineer, at (805) 897-1921 or via email at AHendel@SantaBarbaraCA.gov .
