What’s happening at the Sierra Madre Villages construction site this week:
Exciting progress continues at building 7 on the north side of the Sierra Madre construction site. Steel frames for balconies went up last week, and prefabricated walls are expected to go up this week, going from foundation to building over the course of just a few weeks! Foundations are currently being poured at the other buildings around the site.
Paving at the new West Campus/Sierra Madre Court entrance was delayed last week to allow the site to dry after the rains at the beginning of the week. Paving is expected to start this week, and large tractors and associated noise can be expected. There are not any road closures planned, but there may be temporary delays as equipment crosses the road.
Goleta Water District is planning to install a new fire hydrant at the front corner of the 710 building at some point in the near future, however no specific date has been set. No road closures or water shut offs are expected in association with this work, however there will be workers and equipment on the side of the road, and short temporary delays in traffic may occur as equipment crosses the road.
Work continues at the back side of the West Campus complex to the side of the perimeter road where they are laying new water pipe. All work will occur off of the main road, so no traffic detours are expected, however there will be large equipment and associated noise at times. The road is also slightly more narrow than usual, so please exercise caution when driving, and always follow the posted one way signage.
With all of the activity going on at the front of West Campus we are asking that all pedestrians remain out of the roadway for their own safety, and follow detour signs directing pedestrians to use the pathway by the playground to access Storke Rd.
