Highway 1 Crossings,

Raised Medians,

Turn Lanes

 

Highway 1 Congestion & Safety Improvement Project

Project timeline 2012 - 2024?
Highway 1 Action Plan: Short term, high priority
Project planner: Rob Bartoli, Rbartoli@smcgov.org
See Highway 1 page for related plans & projects

Oct 2012: Transportation Authority (TA) allocated $1.5 million to SMC for planning/permitting of Midcoast crossings, left turn pockets at Gray Whale Cove and 8th St, and raised medians in Montara and Moss Beach (application - appendices). 

The project elements were identified by the community as short term, high priority, and based on concept plans in the Highway 1 Safety & Mobility Improvement Studies:  
        Grey Whale Cove  --  Montara North - Central
        Lighthouse/16th  --  Moss Beach  --  El Granada

 

MCC Input

  • Mar 2012 MCC letter listed common themes and near-term priorities of the Safety/Mobility Study.
  • Jun 2012 MCC support for grant app and early process of consultation with MCC and community on design details. 
  • Oct 2012 MCC requested three break-out groups (Montara, Moss Beach, and El Granada/Miramar) for an inclusive public process in initial planning.
  • May 2013 MCC requested inclusion of the lighthouse crossing when it was learned it had been left out. 
  • Jul  2014 MCC review presentation & renew support.
  • Apr 2015 MCC provided comprehensive comments on the design and evaluation process (minutes).

 

Preferred Alternatives & Implementation Plan

Chapter 6 of the Preliminary Planning Study (PPS) describes the preferred alternatives and implementation plan.  Improvements will be constructed in 3 phases with timing dependent on funding availability:

Phase 1 - 2017-18: Grey Whale Cove Alt 1
                Cypress northbound acceleration lane
Phase 2 - 2020-21: Moss Beach Virginia Alt 3 
Phase 3 - 2023-24: Montara 2nd St Alt 3

Lighthouse/16th Alt 1 was selected for Phase 1, but the design alternative (painted crosswalk with flashing beacon) was disallowed for this type of funding by the TA in Nov 2015. It should be noted that all the crossing design alternatives first presented in June 2014 were of this type, but the community preferred median refuge islands where feasible.
