Construction of new sidewalks in Old Town Goleta are almost complete.

Goleta city officials said the Old Town Sidewalk Improvement project includes constructing sidewalk on at least one side of each street north of Hollister Avenue between South Fairview Avenue and Mallard Avenue as well as on Pine Avenue south of Hollister Avenue.

They will connect to existing sidewalks to provide a continuous path of travel.

Currently, the project is in Phase 4 out of 5 stages where crews are concentrated at the northern section of Nectarine Ave., the southern section of Orange Ave., and Pine Ave..

“The contractor and construction management team continue to perform admirably with construction, traffic control, and resident interactions, all while under the strain of the mandatory COVID-19 orders," said James Winslow, senior project engineer. "The improvements in Old Town are much needed, and we are excited to be entering the final phases and wrapping up the overall paving in the coming months.”

In August, residents will be impacted when Southern California Edison (SCE), Frontier Communications, Cox Communications, and Goleta Water District (GWD) start their improvement work.

City officials said SCE and GWD will be providing notifications to the residents with the work details prior to starting their work.

There will also be drainage improvements, tree replacements, repaving, and the construction of 39 back-in angled parking spots on Magnolia Avenue.
