CARPINTERIA Several closures are planned this week as work continues on the Linden and Casitas Pass Highway 101 project in Carpinteria.
From 9 p.m. March 1 to 7 a.m. March 2, the southbound 101 slow lane will be closed between Linden and Bailard avenues to allow crews to work on roadway improvements. The lane will also be closed from 8 p.m. to 7 a.m. March 2 through March 5. One lane will remain open during work, according to Caltrans officials.
From 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. March 2 to March 6, the northbound onramps at Linden Avenue and Casitas Pass Road will be closed as crews work on drainage improvements. The ramps will not be closed at the same time. The southbound offramp at Linden Avenue remains closed, officials said.
Construction is ongoing on the new sidewalks and safety barriers for the overcrossings at Linden Avenue and Casitas Pass Road. Over the next few weeks, crews will finish up block work for the remaining section of the sound walls to the west and east of Linden Avenue (near Old Linden Avenue and along Via Real).
Ogan Road is closed between Linden Avenue and Pacific Village Drive as crews build the new roundabout and work on roadway improvements. A local street detour is available on State Route 192. Pedestrians can use the sidewalk detour on Pacific Village Drive during the closure.
