Document Description
The California Department of Transportation (Caltrans), in cooperation with the Santa Barbara Association of Governments, City of Carpinteria (City), and County of Santa Barbara, proposes to construct a Class I Bike Path adjacent to the southbound lanes of U.S. 101 between Estero Street, near Carpinteria Avenue off-ramp in the City of Carpinteria, and Sand Point Road in the County of Santa Barbara. The bike path would be constructed almost entirely within Caltrans right of way, with a small portion in City's right of way. The project has been planned for several decades and is included in both the City of Carpinteria's General Plan Circulation Element and Santa Barbara County's Comprehensive Plan Circulation Element.
