STATE ROUTE 1 CLIMBING LANE AT RIO ROAD

April 10, 2018

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

STATE ROUTE 1 CLIMBING LANE AT RIO ROAD

CARMEL, CA–The Monterey County Resource Management Agency (RMA) is managing the construction of the Highway 1 Climbing Lane Project, under permit from Caltrans. The County is aware of the current traffic delays and is working closely with Caltrans and the contractor to improve the situation. The construction activities will continue to affect traffic flow for the duration of the project, however the County in coordination with Caltrans is actively working on minimizing traffic delays.

Construction work hours are normally from 7:30 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. with occasional overnight roadwork between 9:00 p.m. and 5:00 a.m. The project is five months in duration and is slated to be complete at the end of August.

The State Route 1 Climbing Lane Project consists of widening State Route 1 (SR-1) on the eastside, to provide a second northbound lane and installation of new signal poles at the SR-1/Rio Road and SR-1/Carmel Valley Road intersections. Recent activities involve placing temporary concrete barriers along the project site. This will remain in place until after the final paving is complete on SR-1. All interim traffic measures are necessary to maximize public safety, while facilitating traffic flows as best possible, while construction crews work behind the barriers.

Thank you for your patience. Additional information can be found at:
