The California Department of Transportation has reopened both the Romero Canyon and Toro Canyon Creek bridges on Wednesday, January 30.
The bridges were rebuilt due to damage caused by the debris flows and flooding in January 2018, according to Caltrans District 5 Public Affairs Office.
Motorists can expect to encounter barriers on both bridges until the bridge rails are installed.
According to Caltrans Public Information Officer Jim Shivers, Caltrans is working with contractor, Security Paving of Sylmar, on a $20 million-dollar project to help restore full access to all five bridges within Santa Barbara County, and hope to complete these projects in early 2019 if the weather allows for it.
Montecito Creek Bridge, San Ysidro Creek Bridge, and Arroyo Paredon Bridge are all currently under construction, according to Shivers.
