Popular Central Coast highway getting a little too popular
Virtual meeting set to talk about options for popular San Luis Obispo County alternative to Highway 101.
A popular Central Coast highway often used by commuters to bypass Highway 101 traffic is becoming crowded itself, and efforts are underway to try to come up with a plan to deal with the issue.
Commuters have been using Highway 227 to skirt traffic on Highway 101 between the Five Cities area and San Luis Obispo. A study is recommending improvements to five key intersections on the corridor. The idea is to do work as funding becomes available, starting at the Highway 227-Los Ranchos Road intersection.
The San Luis Obispo County Department of Public Works, Caltrans, and the San Luis Obispo Council of Governments are partners in the effort. They are holding a virtual zoom meeting Tuesday night beginning at 6 to update the community on the efforts.
