County planners seek input on plan to improve coastal access

in Community/Infrastructure

San Mateo County is asking residents to review and comment on its plan to improve transportation access in and around the County’s coast.

In the works for seven years, Connect the Coastside aims to reduce congestion with improvements to roadways and public transit in areas surrounding Highway 1 and Highway 92, with a “focus on the unincorporated communities of Montara, Moss Beach, El Granada, Princeton and Miramar,” according to the County.

“The plan proposes dozens of projects that range from improving signs on Highway 92 ($2,000) to a pedestrian crossing over Highway 1 ($4.8 million) to a multi-modal trail ($9.1 million). The total cost for recommended projects is nearly $77 million.

The draft of the Connect the Coastside plan used input from local residents, environmental groups, transit advocates and public officials on both sides of Highway 35, according to the County.

The plan will be presented to the San Mateo County Planning Commission at its Feb. 10. Find details here.
