Big Sur Coast Highway Management Plan (CHMP)
The California Department of Transportation led a collaborative planning effort among diverse stakeholders, including state, federal, and local agencies, community organizations, and elected officials, to develop a management plan for Highway 1 along the Big Sur coast. The effort produced the Big Sur Coast Highway Management Plan, intended to establish coordinated management of the Highway 1 corridor along this widely treasured coastline. The management plan covers an area along Highway 1 from the Carmel River in Monterey County to San Carpoforo Creek in northern San Luis Obispo County.

A Transportation Concept Reportis a technical document that identifies trends and deficiencies within a State Highway System transportation corridor. This provides a basis for considering future actions to preserve the integrity of the corridor over the long-term. This is valuable to Caltrans and its local and regional partners as they consider needs and priorities for future investments.

Corridor System Management Plans (CSMP)
CSMPs provide for the integrated management of travel modes and roadways so as to facilitate the efficient and effective mobility of people and goods within California's most congested transportation corridors. Each CSMP presents an analysis of existing and future traffic conditions and proposes traffic management strategies and transportation improvements to maintain and enhance mobility. CSMP's will address State Highways, local roadways, transit, and other transportation modes.

District System Management Plan (DSMP)
The DSMP is a strategic and policy planning document detailing how the District envisions the transportation system will be maintained, managed and developed during the next 20 years.
