Community Leaders Celebrate Completion Of Major Highway Project On Central Coast

Posted on Friday, January 24, 2014 1:22pm

It was a day of smiles, and handshakes today on the Central Coast, as community leaders gathered to celebrate the official completion of a 47 million dollar Highway 101 improvement project.

Democratic Congresswoman Lois Capps of Santa Barbara, Santa Maria Mayor Alice Patino, plus a number of other state and local officials were on hand for the Santa Maria River Bridge ceremony.

The project added a third lane to the bridge in each direction, upgraded on and off ramps, and built a new bike lane.

The widening project has reduced traffic congestion, and increased safety motorists, and cyclists.
