Document Description
The proposed project represents partial implementation of a planned off-road multi-use path as identified in the Eastern Goleta Valley Community Plan and the Santa Barbara County Association of Governments Regional Plan. This project consists of expanding an existing Class 2 bike lane to a Class 1 multi-use bike/pedestrian path along the south side of Modoc Road. The proposed multi-use path alignment extends the Obern Trail (near the western Encore Drive intersection) to near the Via Senda intersection. The western end of the proposed multi-use path would tie into an existing bike path south of the Modoc Road/Encore Drive intersection. The eastern terminus of the proposed multi-use path would be at Via Senda along the southern shoulder of Modoc Road.
