Document Title
Piedras Blancas Route 1 Realignment
Document Type
NOP - Notice of Preparation

Document Description
The proposal involves a 2.8-mile length of highway, from 0.3 miles north of the Piedras Blancas Lighthouse to the Arroyo de la Cruz Bridge, that would be realigned up to 475 feet inland of the existing alignment. The project would include constructing three bridges: at Arroyo del Corral and an unnamed drainage to the south, and at Arroyo del Oso. As part of the project, Caltrans would also be removing the rock slope protection that has been placed on the shore at two locations within the project vicinity as a temporary protective measure. Also, per AB 1396, the proposal must take into consideration the development of the Coastal Trail, which is tentatively planned to be located on the abandoned roadbed within the project limits.
