Pacifica examines widening part of Hwy 1 to six lanes
The San Mateo County Transportation Authority (SMCTA) and the City of Pacifica, in partnership with the California Department of Transportation (Caltrans) held a "scoping" meeting tonight on widening Highway 1 near the quarry and Rockaway Beach, according to Pacifica Riptide.
The purpose of the project is to reduce congestion on the segment of Highway 1 within Pacifica, from approximately 2,300 feet north of Reina Del Mar Avenue to approximately 1,500 feet south of Fassler Avenue/Rockaway Beach [Google map] [...]
"The project scope may include widening from four lanes to six lanes (three through lanes in each direction) and improvements at the SR1/Reina Del Mar Avenue and SR 1/Fassler Avenue/Rockaway Beach Avenue intersections, including additional lane capacity and signal timing improvements," Hurley says.
The meeting is the first step to creating a Draft Environmental Impact Report.
