Document Description
The project would make improvements to SR 1 in Santa Barbara County, east of Santa Maria and north of the town of Orcutt. Within the project limits, SR 1 is a two-lane undivided highway with 12-foot lanes and 0.5- to 1-foot non-standard shoulders. The purpose of the project is to reduce the number and severity of roadway departure crashes within this segment of the highway. The project would widen shoulders to 8 feet between Solomon Canyon Road and Black Road and widen shoulders to 5 feet between Black Road and SR 166. It would also replace guardrail at spot locations that Traffic Safety deems necessary as a preventative measure in areas with steep side slopes or fixed objects. A historic concrete box culvert at post mile 42.7 would be extended as part of the shoulder widening work. The project would also raise the profile of the highway, gradually up to 5 feet, at two locations (post miles 40.5 and 41.4) that are susceptible to flooding. Other work includes extending and/or replacing approximately 30 culverts to meet new slopes, constructing or modifying existing V-ditches, relocating utility poles and other fixed objects from the clear recovery zone, and installing centerline and edge-line rumble strips.
