Holman Highway 68 Roundabout Construction: Work Continues on the Highway 1 Off-ramp and the Center Island

June 9, 2017
Work continues on the next phase of roundabout construction, with crews focusing on building the center island of the roundabout.
 
Additional congestion is possible as drivers adjust to the new yield signs. It is recommended that drivers allow extra time to go through the intersection or to use an alternative route if possible.
 
During this phase of construction drivers exiting the Pebble Beach Highway 1 Gate will be not be able to access westbound Holman Highway 68 going toward Community Hospital and Pacific Grove.
 
Drivers wishing to access westbound Highway 68 from Pebble Beach going towards Community Hospital and Pacific Grove will need to make a U-turn off northbound Highway 1 at Munras Avenue and then proceed to the Highway 1 off-ramp at Highway 68.
 
Drivers from Pebble Beach will have full access to both northbound and southbound Highway 1.
 
Additionally, large trucks and buses exiting the Pebble Beach Highway 1 Gate can make a right only.
