Why is this study needed?

Due to congestion on parallel roadways such as SR 1, and the increased use of mobile GPS applications such as Google Maps, more travelers are using the G-12 study corridor between Pajaro and Prunedale as a faster route when traveling between Santa Cruz and Salinas. With the added traffic on G-12, congestion has increased, resulting in rising concerns for safety, maintenance, and operations. This corridor study will evaluate how to improve safety, operations and maintenance to accommodate current and future travel along the corridor route.

What will the process be?

The study process will include:

  • Evaluate existing and future travel conditions,
  • Host public meetings to receive community concerns and ideas,
  • Analyze alternative solutions,
  • Host public meetings to receive community feedback on the alternatives,
  • Recommend a preferred plan based on technical analysis and community and agency input.
How can you get involved?

Attend one of the community meetings held in different areas along the corridor.  This first set of community meetings will be on Wednesday, May 23 or Thursday, May 24. For details of the upcoming community meetings, please go to the “Community Meetings” page on this website.  If you are unable to attend any of the public meetings, please use this website and take our online poll. Additionally, if you would like to submit your comments or concerns regarding current conditions along the study corridor via email, go to the “Contact Us” page on this website.  Your comments and concerns are appreciated.
