Caltrans, in partnership with MCOG, proposes an enhancement project on State Route 1 (SR 1) through downtown Gualala in Mendocino County (post miles 0.6 to 1.0). The current design of the downtown area of Gualala has several deficiencies that could increase conflicts between motorized users, cyclists, and pedestrians.
The purpose of the proposed project is to create safe, comfortable facilities for pedestrian and bicycle travel, and to improve traffic flow in the project area. The project is also intended to improve Gualala's visual character by incorporating landscape and hardscape features.
Although the draft environmental document for the project has been circulated, community consensus on a final alternative has not been reached, and it may become necessary to recirculate the environmental document once a preferred alternative has been selected.
The total project cost estimate will be determined once a preferred alternative is selected. To date, MCOG has programmed $1.82 million for project development. Supplemental funding for project development and construction in the form of an Active Transportation Program grant is currently being pursued.
Begin construction (current schedule): 2026
