Work To Begin Soon On Project To Add Lanes To Congested Section Of 101 Freeway in Ventura, Santa Barbara Counties

Posted on Tuesday, March 6, 2012 10:29am


Work is about ready to start on expanding a key section of the 101 Freeway near the Ventura-Santa Barbara County line which often gets jammed during key commute times.  The just over three year long project calls for adding carpool lanes in each direction to the freeway from just south of La Conchita, to near Casitas Pass Road, in Carpinteria.  And, KCLU’s Lance Orozco reports that what was budgeted as a $150 million dollar project may even come in one third under the original budget, because of the competitive market for construction work.
