Granite wins Highway 101 reconstruction contract in Los Angeles


California Construction News staff writer

California contractor Granite has been awarded a $48 million contract for reconstruction work on Highway 101 in Santa Barbara County.

Improvements include a lane for cars with more than one occupant in each direction, California Department of Transportation (Caltrans) announced.

This project is the fourth mainline segment (4D North) awarded to Granite under its Construction Manager/General Contractor (CMGC) contract to reconstruct 10.9 miles of Highway 101. In December 2018, Granite was selected as the CMGC for the overall Highway 101: Carpinteria to Santa Barbara project.

The estimated construction contract value for the remaining segments is about $195 million. The first mainline segment (4A) was completed last year through Carpinteria. Segments 4C and 4B are underway and scheduled to be completed in 2023 and 2024.

“This project is another step to help alleviate the rush-hour traffic coming into and leaving Santa Barbara and we are excited to deliver this important project for Caltrans and the Santa Barbara County communities surrounding the project,” said Larry Camilleri, vice president of regional operations at Granite.

Construction starts immediately and is expected to be completed in June 2026. For more information on the project, visit
