Document Description
The California Department of Transportation in partnership with the Transportation Agency for Monterey County (TAMC) proposes to improve intersection operations along Scenic Route (SR) 68 between Josselyn Canyon Road and San Benancio Road (Postmile 4.8 to 13.7) and enhance wildlife connectivity in order to reduce travel delays, vehicle collisions, and collisions between wildlife and vehicles. A no build alternative and two build alternatives are proposed. The build alternatives propose roundabout or intersection operational improvements to multiple intersections along SR 68, including a design option for some mainline operational improvements (Alt 2 only) and installation of large mammal wildlife crossings.
