UPDATE: The Highway 101 project will begin Tuesday, July 11. During the overnight hours from Tuesday, July 11 through Friday morning July 14, travelers will encounter the closure of two lanes in each direction on US 101 from 10 p.m. to 6 a.m. One lane will remain open in both directions during this time.

The Route 217 project will begin the week of July 16. Exact details TBD.

Those traveling to Santa Barbara Airport are advised to use the Highway 101/Fairview Avenue exits or an alternate route to access the Terminal during this time. Both of these projects currently have a timeline of two years and will have periodic lane closures and detours throughout the construction period. Please allow for extra time to account for traffic delays when planning your arrival to the Airport.

You can read more about the projects on the Airport's website.
