As part of our ongoing effort to keep the community up to date on the Highway 101: Linden and Casitas Pass Project, we send out regular project construction updates via email. The following is the current construction update.

Timeframe

Timeframe: May 21 - 27, 2017

Recent Progress: Work on underground supports for the Linden and Casitas Pass overcrossings as well as the bridges over Carpinteria Creek progresses with concrete installation in the freeway median piles, pile driving for side supports, and grading for the embankments leading up to the bridges.


Scheduled Construction

Please note: During nighttime lane closures on Highway 101, California Highway Patrol officers will be monitoring the area to ensure a safe construction zone.


New Freeway Overcrossings


Linden Avenue

  • Crews will continue work on the underground bridge supports in the freeway median and fill with concrete.
    • There will be night work Sunday through Thursday with alternating Highway 101 northbound and southbound lane closures and the northbound on-ramp at Linden Avenue near the overcrossing between 8:00 pm and 5:00 am as needed. At least one freeway lane in each direction will remain open during work.
  • Pile driving for the underground side supports will occur throughout the week. Please expect loud noise between 7:00 am and 5:00 pm.
  • Grading for dirt embankments leading up to the new bridge area continues.
  • Drainage improvements are being installed near the southeast corner of the overcrossing.


Casitas Pass Road

  • After work at the Linden Avenue overcrossing, crews will work on the new Casitas Pass Road underground bridge supports in the freeway median and fill with concrete. There will be night work Sunday through Thursday with alternating Highway 101 northbound and southbound lane closures and the northbound on-ramp Casitas Pass near the overcrossing between 8:00 pm and 5:00 am as needed. At least one freeway lane in each direction will remain open during work.

Carpinteria Creek Bridges

  • After the piles are driven for the underground supports, crews will begin forming and pouring concrete, above-ground supports for the Via Real bridge over Carpinteria Creek.
  • Dirt from the construction site will be used to create embankment areas for the new Carpinteria Creek bridges. Crews will also work at night as needed to allow dump trucks to enter the freeway median area.
  • Drainage improvements continue.


Highway 101
