Highway 1 Studies & Issues

.

Comprehensive Transportation Management Plan (CTMP)

The CTMP is being developed to address cumulative traffic impacts of Midcoast residential development on Highway 1 and 92.  Background and progress to date  are on the 
Connect the Coastside page.

 

Highway 1 Safety & Mobility Studies

Two-phase planning effort to develop conceptual plans to improve Highway 1 safety and mobility between Half Moon Bay and Devil’s Slide, 2009-2012:  Hwy 1 Mobility Studies page

 .

Coastal Access & Parking Study

The 2015 Midcoast Parking & Access Study was an action item of the Highway 1 Safety & Mobility Studies for completion of a parking study before more detail planning of beach and trailhead parking lots in the Midcoast, with the goal of sharing and limiting the number of new parking lots.  Presentation at MCC.  

 

Modern Roundabouts - a safer choice 

  • 75% fewer injury collisions & 90% reduction in overall fatalities.  Highest crash rates of all Midcoast intersections are at traffic signals. 
  • Keep traffic moving through intersections.
  • Significantly less delay for peak-hour cross-street traffic. 
  • Increased intersection capacity due to lower speeds and resulting smaller gaps between vehicles. 
  • Fuel consumption/emissions reduced by less vehicle idling and not starting from a complete stop. 
  • Large trucks can make U-turns via the central truck apron. 
  • Traffic calming in village areas
  • Safe pedestrian crossings, one direction of traffic at a time, set back from entry points.
  • No blinking red signal malfunctions causing extensive backups.
