The SLV Schools Access Study Public Workshop Recording Now Available

Provide important input on issues to improve access to the SLV Schools and traffic flow along Highway 9 through June 30 via our online survey.

The Santa Cruz County Regional Transportation Commission (RTC), in partnership with the San Lorenzo Valley Unified School District, the County of Santa Cruz, Santa Cruz Metropolitan Transit District, and Caltrans, is seeking to improve access to the San Lorenzo Valley High School, Middle School, and Elementary School (SLV Schools) as well as traffic flow along Highway 9 in the area for non-school traffic. The SLV Schools Access Study is underway and will work with Caltrans staff already evaluating opportunities to improve walking and cycling along Highway 9 between Felton and the SLV Schools to align improvements at the schools with any Caltrans-led improvements along Highway 9 to the south. The study will also evaluate multimodal improvement opportunities north to the southern intersection of Glen Arbor Road.

The RTC held an online public workshop on June 9 to inform community members about the purpose and schedule for the Study, discuss recent Highway 9 improvements and ongoing challenges, and listen to ideas and concerns from community members.

Community members are also asked to complete an online survey by June 30 to identify needs along Highway 9 and at the SLV Schools. Input from the survey and workshop will be used to inform the project team as they draft concepts for transportation solutions along Highway 9.
