The FHWA, in cooperation with the California Department of Transportation (Caltrans), will prepare an environmental impact statement (EIS) on a proposed project to construct three operational improvements to improve traffic flow on portions of State Route 1 between Carmel Valley Road and the Route 1/68 interchange (a distance of 2.2 miles), near the City of Carmel-by-the-Sea, in Monterey County. The project is to add a northbound climbing land and a median left turn lane from Carmel Valley Road to Ocean Avenue; add a left turn lane for northbound traffic turning onto Handley Drive; and add an additional northbound lane from Handley Drive to the Route 1/68 interchange. The other alternative under consideration would construct one, two or none of the three proposed operational improvements. The proposed project would basically be an upgrade of the existing facility.

There would be a public scoping meeting to discuss the proposed project and another opportunity for public comment on the draft environmental document during the circulation phase of the draft environmental impact statement (DEIS).

To ensure that the full range of issues related to this proposed action is addressed and all significant issues identified, comments and suggestions are invited from all interested parties. The views of agencies that may have interest in the effects of the proposal on historic properties are specifically solicited. Comments or questions concerning this proposed action and the EIS should be directed to the FHWA at the address provided above.
