Butterfly Lane undercrossing reopens
MONTECITO — Improvements have been completed on the Highway 101 pedestrian undercrossing at Butterfly Lane.
A 24/7 closure of the Montecito undercrossing since November 2021 has allowed for construction of walls and stairways compliant with the Americans with Disabilities Act.
Caltrans said construction activities before the full opening included electrical work, landscaping, irrigation and the installation of fences, gates, and railings.
The railroad crossing at the south side of the undercrossing includes a new walkway. Handrails and crossing arms with visual and audio signals are included as well.
The mural inside the undercrossing was maintained as part of this project.
The contractor for this $3.7 million project was C.A. Rasmussen Inc. of Valencia.
