GOLETA, Calif. -

The Fairview on-ramp to the 101 freeway in Goleta will be closed starting Monday June 16.

The on-ramp will be closed for the next six to nine months to allow crews to fix two large drainage pipes along the Las Vegas and San Pedro creeks. Crews will be making the creeks bigger to deal with heavy rains.

The project will also keep the area north of Calle Real from flooding.

Local businesses in the area will stay open during the construction.
