State Route 225 (SR 225) was a state highway in the U.S. state of California that was a loop route of U.S. Route 101 that served the beach areas of the Santa Barbara area.

Route description[edit]

SR 225 was a route that closely followed the beaches of the city of Santa Barbara, it started off near the Earl Warren Showgrounds at the junction of U.S. Route 101 and Las Positas Road and headed south towards the coast before turning east on Cliff Drive. It then climbed up a small viaduct before descending near Santa Barbara City College and ended at Castillo Street and US 101.


Until 1998, SR 225 followed Cabrillo Boulevard along the beach, ending near Montecito. On January 30, 2014, Caltrans transferred control of SR 225 to the city of Santa Barbara; as of 2019, the Route 225 definition still remains listed under Section 525 of the California Streets and Highways Code, including the authorization for Caltrans to transfer control of the highway to Santa Barbara.[2]

Major intersections[edit]

Except where prefixed with a letter, postmiles were measured on the road as it was in 1964, based on the alignment that existed at the time, and do not necessarily reflect current mileage. R reflects a realignment in the route since then, M indicates a second realignment, L refers an overlap due to a correction or change, and T indicates postmiles classified as temporary (for a full list of prefixes, see the list of postmile definitions).[1] Segments that remain unconstructed or have been relinquished to local control may be omitted. The entire route is in Santa Barbara, Santa Barbara County.
