Updated April 2019
After the January 2018 flooding and debris flows in Montecito that followed the Thomas Fire, there were several road closures in our area. Roads accessed by 101 Freeway offramps close to campus (Summerland, Evans, Sheffield) are now open, with only one lane open for a short distance on Highway 192 just east of Ladera Lane anticipated through June 2019.
There are some repairs still in progress on two bridges on Highway 192 at the far west end of Montecito anticipated through July 2019 and two bridges on 192 in Carpinteria, east of Toro Canyon Road anticipated through April 2019.
During periods of heavy rain, there may be further short-term evacuations ordered by the Santa Barbara Sheriff. If you are coming from out of the area during inclemate weather, check with staff before setting out for your visit.
