The Goleta Chamber has been a long-time advocate for the widening of the 101. This project will widen Highway 101 from four to six lanes between the city of Carpinteria and the city of Santa Barbara to improve safety, reduce traffic congestion and match the six-lane highway south of Carpinteria and north of Santa Barbara. Funding will be used in combination with $285 million in state and federal gas taxes to accelerate the project schedule by an estimated 10 years.

This project was approved in 2014 and construction has continued over the last 3 years.
