El Camino Real – Gaviota CA

Description

The National Industrial Recovery Act (NIRA) helped finance the modernization of 4 1/2 miles of what is today State Route 1 and Interstate 101 through an unincorporated area 30 miles west of Santa Barbara from a twisty and dangerous 2 lane road into a 4 lane highway. The cost of construction was $65,000 per mile.
