The City of Carpinteria and the County are working with Caltrans and SBCAG on a Class I bikeway that will provide a connection from Santa Claus Lane to Carpinteria Avenue. This will connect a gap in the California Coastal Trail between Sandpoint Drive and Carpinteria Avenue. This will enable bicyclists to travel between Santa Claus Lane and Carpinteria.

The City is leading work to replace the Cabrillo Boulevard railroad undercrossing between Highway 101 and Los Patos Way to improve circulation for vehicles, bicycles, and pedestrians. This project will provide safety and access improvements on a key part of the California Coastal Trail in Santa Barbara.
At Los Patos Way and Cabrillo Boulevard, the City will also build a new roundabout to improve circulation between the beach, Montecito, the neighborhood, and local businesses. The roundabout is anticipated to begin construction in 2022, and the railroad undercrossing improvements will be built during the freeway improvements in the area anticipated to begin in 2023 depending on funding.
A new roundabout will improve traffic flow at the five-point intersection of Olive Mill Road, Coast Village Road, North Jameson Lane, the Highway 101 northbound off-ramp, and the Highway 101 southbound on-ramp.
A new roundabout will improve traffic flow at the intersection of San Ysidro Road, the Highway 101 northbound on- and off-ramps, and North Jameson Lane. Across the freeway bridge, new stop signs will create a four-way, stop-controlled intersection of the Highway 101 southbound off-ramp, San Ysidro Road, and South Jameson Lane.
