Final Environmental Impact Report for Highway 1 Auxiliary Lane Project Now Available

The Final Environmental Impact Report/Environmental Assessment with Findings of No Significant Impact for the Highway 1 State Park-Bay/Porter Auxiliary Lanes project has been completed and is available on the RTC website.

The proposed project is a widening of Highway 1 between post mile 10.54 to post mile 13.44 in the County of Santa Cruz and the City of Capitola to include auxiliary lanes and to accommodate bus-on-shoulder operations between the State Park Drive and Bay Avenue/Porter Street interchanges. The project also proposes to replace the Capitola Avenue overcrossing and build a new pedestrian and bicycle overcrossing at Mar Vista Drive.

The Final EIR/EA is available at https://sccrtc.org/projects/streets-highways/hwy1corridor/bayporter-statepark/.
