The US 101 Business Plan will provide the data, strategy, and community support needed to match corridor priorities with potential funding mechanisms for implementing improvements in the US 101 Central Coast corridor.

While this Santa Barbara County focus group is limited to select stakeholders, Caltrans District 5 will present information on the plan to the SBCAG Board of Directors and members of the public at the January 21, 2021 Board of Directors meeting. We hope you will be interested in participating in this process.
