The project is in the County of Santa Cruz and the City of Capitola on State Route 1 from post mile 10.54 to post mile 13.44. The total length of the project is about 2.9 miles. Within the project limits, State Route 1 is a conventional four-lane freeway with two 12-foot lanes, a 5-foot paved inside shoulder, and 6-foot to 10-foot paved outside shoulders in each direction. The Capitola Avenue overcrossing (built in 1948) is an undivided two-lane road (one lane in each direction) with a curb-to-curb width of about 28 feet for shared-use of vehicles and bicycles with an estimated 3.3-foot-wide pedestrian walkway on both sides. The Capitola Avenue overcrossing has a clearance of 14 feet, 6 inches in the southbound direction, and 14 feet, 10 inches in the northbound direction over State Route 1, which is the lowest clearance within the project limits. The purpose of the project is to widen State Route 1 to include auxiliary lanes and to accommodate bus-on-shoulder operations between the State Park Drive and Bay Avenue/Porter Street interchanges, replace the Capitola Avenue overcrossing, and build a new pedestrian and bicycle overcrossing at Mar Vista Drive. For the portion of the project within the boundaries of the County of Santa Cruz (beginning approximately 1.5 miles south of the Bay Ave/Porter Street exit and extending south along Highway 1 for a distance of about 1.5 miles through the State Park Drive exit), the project includes construction of auxiliary lane improvements in both the north- and southbound directions, construction of a new pedestrian and bicycle overcrossing at Mar Vista Drive, and new sound barriers. Requires approval of a Coastal Development Permit. This is to advise that the County of Santa Cruz, as a Responsible Agency, has considered the EIR or Negative Declaration as prepared by State of California Department of Transportation, acting as Lead Agency, and has approved the above-described project on October 7, 2022.
