The Santa Cruz County Regional Transportation Commission (SCCRTC) invites the community to the kick-off meeting for the Highway 9/San Lorenzo Valley Transportation Corridor Plan, Tuesday October 11 at 6pm at the San Lorenzo Valley Performing Arts Complex on the SLV High School campus: 7105 Highway 9, Felton. Share your vision for Highway 9, learn about upcoming projects, and participate in development of this action plan to make it safer and easier for everyone to get around, whether they are walking, biking, driving, or taking transit.

BACKGROUND

Building on past community input, residents, businesses, students, and community groups will help the Santa Cruz County Regional Transportation Commission (SCCRTC) develop a master plan for Highway 9, in partnership with County Supervisor Bruce McPherson, Caltrans, County Public Works, County Planning, and Santa Cruz METRO. Since state and federal funding available for transportation projects is severely limited, this action plan will prioritize projects that can be completed in the short and mid-term. The plan is expected to include projects that improve safety for motorists, pedestrians, and bicyclists; projects that improve access to schools, businesses, and bus stops; intersection and other roadway projects that improve traffic flow; bicycle lanes, paths, sidewalks; drainage, parking, and other needs in this important travel corridor. Measure D, which is on the November ballot, includes $10 million specifically earmarked for transportation projects along the Highway 9 corridor. Supervisor Bruce McPherson will lead a discussion about Measure D immediately following this meeting.
