Representatives from CalTrans will attend the Wednesday, February 25 Regular Meeting of the Midcoast Community Council (MCC) to give the public an update on the Devil’s Slide Tunnels project, answer questions regarding that project, and address other local Highway 1 issues.

Please post other questions for CalTrans as comments to this article so that they may be submitted in advance in case research is required.  At this time, CalTrans has been requested to also comment on the following:

  • Master plan for Highway 1 from Montara to Half Moon Bay
  • Status report on what will happen to remainder of Highway 1 on Devil’s Slide
  • Status report on sea level change impact and remedies for those impacts on Midcoast section of Highway 1.  [This report is due to be given to the governor at the end of March; there should be some early info on this area, in particular, what does CalTrans have in mind for SR 1 past Surfer’s Beach, and what’s the time frame?
