Corral de Tierra Intersection Improvement Project
The State Route 68 / Corral De Tierra Intersection Improvement Project consists of operational improvements at this intersection about 9 miles west of the City of Salinas in Monterey County.
The County of Monterey has taken on the role of implementing all phases of this project and therefore is managing the scope, cost and schedule of each project component. The California Department of Transportation (Caltrans) as the owners and operators of the highway facility must review and authorize all proposed modifications. Caltrans is also the lead agency for compliance with the California Environmental Quality Act (CEQA).
The proposed project would be funded by a combination of State Transportation Improvement Program-Regional Improvement Program funds and local funds (development impact fees). The California Transportation Commission (CTC) staff recommendations (4/22/16) indicate the 1.7 million needed for construction of this project will not be provided in the 16/17 fiscal year but moved to 17/18. This means the earliest construction could begin is Fall of 2017.
