Document Description
The California Department of Transportation (Caltrans) proposes to relocate drainage ditches along State Route 166 between Guadalupe and Santa Maria in Northern Santa Barbara County. The purpose of the project is to improve safety on State Route 166 by providing additional recovery area for errant vehicles between post mile 0.9 to 2.4 (Location 1) and post mile 3.8 to 4.8 (Location 2). The collision rate within the project limits is higher than the statewide average for similar facilities. In addition, a high percentage of the collisions involve drivers traveling beyond the right shoulder and into the drainage ditches that closely parallel the highway on both sides of the road.
