Live Traffic Info for the Central Coast

The Santa Barbara County Association of Governments (SBCAG) recently introduced SBroads.com, a site which provides real time traffic information for towns between Goleta and Carpinteria. The site's interactive map shows current traffic conditions on the 101 freeway, and markers on the map display the location of any accidents, roadwork, or other incidents which may affect traffic.

Users can view live traffic cameras (blue symbols on the map)

Additionally, users can also view one of seven live traffic cameras up and down the 101 freeway in Santa Barbara and the Goleta Valley to see what traffic looks like in real time. Travel time estimates are provided based on current traffic conditions as measured by roadway sensors, and traffic incidents and sigalerts are provided by the CHP for display on the traffic map.

Estimated travel times are calculated and displayed.

SBroads.com also has lots of information about ongoing improvements to the 101 freeway and other transportation improvement projections occurring across the county. Current projects mentioned on the site include:
  • Construction of HOV lane between Santa Barbara and La Conchita.
  • Widening of the US 101 Santa Maria River bridge.
  • Addition of passing lanes to HWY 246 between Solvang and Buellton.
