Canyon Del Rey Boulevard (SR 218) Corridor Study

Project Background

TAMC is leading the Canyon Del Rey Boulevard (State Route 218) Corridor Study in partnership with the cities of Del Rey Oaks, Seaside and Caltrans. The Corridor Study will gather data, conduct a technical traffic forecast analysis, and utilize public input to identify a set of complete streets, stormwater drainage, active transportation, and environmental and wildlife preservation improvements for the corridor that connects SR 1 to SR 68 through the cities of Seaside, Del Rey Oaks, and Monterey.

Corridor Study Goals

  • Make Canyon Del Rey Boulevard for safer for different forms of transportation and for people of all ages and abilities
  • Document existing conditions and plans governing improvements in the corridor
  • Engage local residents and regional partners in the study process
  • Recommend conceptual designs for complete street improvements including:
    • sidewalks, street furniture, lighting and plantings;
    • intersection improvements for safe, accessible pedestrian crossings;
    • bus transit improvements along the corridor;
    • bicycle lanes, paths and/or signage, including connections to existing and planned projects, such as the City of Monterey’s North Fremont Street bike and pedestrian improvements and the planned Fort Ord Regional Trail & Greenway.
  • Recommend conceptual designs for drainage and underground utility improvements, including “Green Street” improvements
  • Recommend priorities and phasing for implementing improvements
  • Identify potential fund sources for implementation

Project Funding

  • $150,960 Caltrans Strategic Partnerships Planning grant
