Purisima Repaving Project

Santa Barbara County Public Works will repave a section of Purisima Road north of Lompoc starting Monday, December 18. Construction will occur on Purisima Road between Mission Gate Road and Rucker Road. We are asking all travelers to use alternative routes in this area and to expect 15 minute travel delays in the construction area. Construction will occur from December 18 through December 22 and will resume on January 2. This section of the road will be open with flagging operations and one way traffic during construction, and it will be open with no delays from December 23 through January 1.

Local contractor Burke Construction will grind off the surface of the old pavement, repave the road, and add a second layer of asphalt that will provide structural strength and longevity. All paving and striping of the road is expected to be complete by the end of March. The project cost is estimated at $425,000 and is funded by the Santa Barbara County General Fund for deferred maintenance.
