The new terminal at the San Luis Obispo County Regional Airport is almost ready for takeoff.
Airport officials say the brand new, 56,000-square-foot terminal will open to departing passengers on November 2.
Passengers arriving on flights the night before will be the very first to go through the new building.
Construction on the new terminal began two years ago. The airport says the $35.4 million facility will help staff handle more frequent flights and larger aircraft.
Officials say a dead bear found along the beach in Carpinteria this week may have died during last week's mudslides in Montecito.
Former Atascadero High School track star, Brittni Frace, 20, was killed Tuesday in a crash near Coalinga.
Highway 101 through Santa Barbara, closed after the mudslides of Dec. 9, is projected to reopen as early as next week, according to Caltrans.
Caltrans says it hopes to have some sort of timeline Monday on when Highway 101 may reopen in the Montecito area.
