In Carpinteria, crews are beginning to pave base layers in the northbound lanes. 

Construction crews will begin paving base layers for the Hwy 101 Northbound lanes and ramps in Carpinteria, ahead of placing reinforced pavement, a two-week construction update from the county announced. 

Utility crews are also relocating overhead utilities over the next few months near Via Real and are installing new drainage features. Construction crews will also focus on new overhead sign foundations. 

On Highway 101 southbound, crews are focusing on guardrail and vegetation control, while crews on the Franklin and Santa Monia creek bridges are focused on the superstructures for the bridges.

Crews are also installing underground supports and construction wall footings near Franciscan Court and north of Cravens Lane, between Franklin Creek and Santa Ynez Avenue, between Santa Ynez Avenue and Santa Monica Creek, and north of Santa Monica Creek. 

Near Via Real, crews are also preparing for the new sound wall.
