El Colegio & Storke Road Improvements Project Update

November 18, 2016

As a result of community input, UCSB, Santa Barbara County, and the traffic engineering project team have completed the design modifications of the El Colegio & Storke Road intersection to add enhanced safety measures. Starting Monday, November 21st, the contractor will resume working on the southeast corner closest to Isla Vista Elementary School, and then on Monday, November 28th, the contractor will continue working on the pedestrian island which is scheduled to be complete before Winter Quarter begins in January 2017. During this approximately 7-week phase of completing the pedestrian island in the middle of the El Colegio & Storke Road intersection, the left-hand turn on to Slough Road for westbound El Colegio Road traffic will be closed.

We ask that all vehicles, cyclists, and pedestrians be cautious when traveling through the construction areas and follow all posted signs, detours, and traffic control measures. Thank you for your patience, understanding, and support throughout this important project, and please feel free to email Jennifer.pierce@ucsb.edu or projects@housing.ucsb.edu with any questions.
