Public Invited to Comment on Roundabouts Replacing Traffic Lights on Highway 68 Between Salinas and Monterey
In cooperation with the Transportation Agency for Monterey County (TAMC), Caltrans is proposing the "Scenic Route 68 Corridor Improvements Project" to improve intersection operations to reduce traffic delays, reduce the rate and severity of vehicle and wildlife collisions, and improve bicycle and pedestrian access. To achieve these goals, the project would add either roundabouts (Alternative 1) or signalized intersection improvements (Alternative 2) to nine currently signalized intersections on a nearly nine-mile stretch of State Route 68 from approximately Josselyn Canyon Road in the west to San Benancio Road in the east. On November 9, Caltrans released a "Draft Environmental Impact Report" (DEIR) and invited public comment.
