Olive Mill Roundabout Construction Set to Begin

Authored on

Construction for the Olive Mill Roundabout is scheduled to begin in late November 2022 and last through summer 2023. The project consists of reconfiguring the existing six-legged intersection at Olive Mill Road, Coast Village Road, Jameson Lane, Highway 101 northbound off-ramp, and Highway 101 southbound on-ramp to a single lane roundabout. It includes the addition of street lighting, pedestrian refuge islands, sidewalks, and crosswalks to improve safety, mobility and traffic operations. Utility relocation is currently underway. The project is a multi-agency partnership between the City of Santa Barbara, County of Santa Barbara, SBCAG, and Caltrans.
