Transportation Agency for Monterey County

Programs

Transportation Safety & Investment Plan

The Transportation Agency is considering a 3/8% sales tax for the November 2016 ballot. That three-eights of a penny sales tax would raise $20 million dollars a year for 30 years, for a total estimated amount of $600 million. The money raised would be used for local road and street maintenance in the county and each city and for regional projects.

Bicycle Secure Program

The Bicycle Secure Program continues the Agency’s public mandate to, among other things, work to achieve a coordinated and balanced regional transportation system by promoting active transportation. By providing secure bicycle parking, businesses and agencies can attract more bicycle-riding patrons and support bicycle commuting employees.

Highway 68 Roundabout

The Holman Highway 68 intersection with the Highway One southbound off-ramp and 17 Mile Drive is a gateway to Pacific Grove and Pebble Beach. Unfortunately this currently signalized intersection experiences unacceptable peak hour congestion. A roundabout feasibility study completed in 2011-2012 showed that compared to the signalized intersection option, a roundabout option is safer, less expensive, and more efficient.
