Highway 1 Climbing Lane Project Resumes: March 14 – April 14
Work to create a Climbing Lane at Highway 1 and Rio Road was completed late last summer, but some additional needs for the area were postponed in consideration of the tourist travel season. That additional work will begin next week.
The project will include the area from the Carmel Valley Road turn lane to just south of Rio Road on Highway 1. Traffic will be impacted during the project due to lane closures. Crews will be on site seven days a week during this project to expedite the work.
This project will have two phases:
Work crews will be replacing the signal mast arm at Highway 1 and Carmel Valley Road. One of the southbound left turn pocket lanes onto Carmel Valley Road will be closed to traffic during construction. Project site work hours will be 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. seven days a week.
Crews will be working on drainage improvement, adding an asphalt berm and signal light shields at Highway 1 and Rio Road. The right turn pocket and one northbound through lane will be closed during construction. Project work hours will be 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. five days a week.
