AUGUST LUNCH MEETING: US 101 Corridor Mobility Master Plan
SLOCOG led the development of the US 101 Corridor Mobility Master Plan with strong participation by member agency representatives and included a significant public participation effort. Consultant members of this team were led by Kittelson Associates as a whole with key team members Wallace Group locally and Flint Strategies as outreach consultant. This study was approved by the SLOCOG Board in December of 2014 and served as a significant resource in setting priorities for our Regional Transportation Plan. Initially the US 101 Corridor Mobility Master Plan reviewed traffic operations along the entire 70 mile length of the US 101 corridor in San Luis Obispo County and, based upon 12 priority parameters agreed upon by agency stakeholders and approved by the Board, further analyzed 4 "Focused Study Segments". Stakeholders provided varied perspectives on how to address identified needs along the corridor. As a “compass” for facilitating project direction, the development of a unified vision for the corridor was developed and the following vision statement was developed by the US 101 Corridor Mobility Master Plan Task Force to encapsulate the core purpose of this study and to guide decisions throughout:
“Connecting communities within and across the region to improve travel time reliability, safety and modal choices for the efficient movement of people and goods.“
Based on the technical analysis and public input, the following 4 Focused Study Segments were selected for further analysis:
• Segment 1 - 8.7 miles of US 101 between the Traffic Way Interchange (IC) in Arroyo Grande and the Avila Beach Road IC through the Five-Cities area
• Segment 2 - 4.5 miles of US 101 between the Los Osos Valley Road IC and the Monterey Street IC through the City of San Luis Obispo
• Segment 3 - 8.8 miles of US 101 between the Santa Barbara Road IC and the Vineyard Drive IC through the City of Atascadero
• Segment 4 - 4.4 miles of US 101 between the southern and northern Spring Street exits in the City of Paso Robles.
A Cost/Benefit analysis was applied to potential projects or services that would address needs along the corridor and the study yielded funding recommendations for the Short Term (5 yrs), Short-Medium Term (5-10 yrs), Medium-Long Term (10-20 yrs) and Long Term (20+ yrs) improvements for the US 101 corridor in our county. Come hear more about future US 101 improvements currently being evaluated in our area!
