Highway 92 project takes its first steps tonight

Posted by on Sun, October 22, 2006

The first phase of the Highway 92 project begins tonight, reports the Daily Journal.

At 9:30 p.m. Sunday, Caltrans crews will close down a small part of State Route 92 for overnight trenching. It marks the first of six phases in the ambitious $21.8 million project, which is expected to finish by 2008. The expansion will ultimately improve traffic flow in Half Moon Bay near the intersection of Highway 1 and State Route 92.
The trenching work will begin at North Main Street and continue toward Pilarcitos Creek. The trenching will occur every night of the week except Saturday. Sunday work will begin at 9:30 p.m. and finish by 5:30 a.m. while work during the rest of the week will begin at 10:30 p.m. and end at 5:30 a.m., said Nancy Kyser, administrative assistant for Half Moon Bay Public Works Department.

Are there illustrations and/or other documents available online with the details of this project?

Dylan I too am looking for info online about the 92-1 project. Posted on Talkabout asking for info also.I believe that where the project ends going East @ Hilltop when we go back to our miserable one lane from 2 is going to cause problems as every one jockeys back to one lane from two.Rage, middle fingers’ zooming past you on the right @ the last minute to get one car ahead of you.Dont see how this is not going to cause backups. Going West is going to be a help though as traffic will spread out from 1 lane to 2 with the new right & left turns.

The City Council, Public Works Directors, the traffic engineers, Caltrans, CCAG, and the Transportation Authority have been making it clear for years that the traffic benefits from the Main & 92 project are primarily in the Westbound direction and for local circulation, i.e. Main Street.  The double left turn lanes from southbound #1 onto #92 will give the commuters from the North a little better shake during heavy traffic but, practically speaking, at the expense of commuters coming from the South.

There is no plan for 4-laning Highway #92 over the next 30 years of highway planning & funding.  There is a plan for straightening and widening each lane of the 2-lane Highway #92 from Spanishtown to the uphill lanes.  I’m not sure, though, where the planning and funding (somewhere between 30 to 50 million) stands at this time.

Thanks Mike i knew you had the answer. Maybe if we stopped interfering in other countries [ our intentions are honorable but we cant seem to get our interference right] we could use the monies we spend on our own citizens & country.
