Holman Highway 68 Roundabout - Take a Lap!

July 7, 2017
This past week the project reached a major milestone as the roundabout was opened to traffic in all directions. For the first time ever it is now possible to get a 360 degree view of the intersection at Holman Highway 68 and Highway 1! Overhead sign structures have been installed which should significantly help people find their way through the intersection and roadside signs are on the way. The two lanes on eastbound Highway 68 (toward Highway 1) continue to be consolidated to one lane to make room for construction and landscaping work. The consolidation has caused some slowing, but once work is complete there will be separate lanes for those travelling toward the Highway 1 northbound on-ramp and the Pebble Beach Highway 1 Gate entrance. Construction photos are included below.
 
Upcoming Construction (July 13 - July 16)
Below is the projected schedule; however, this schedule is dependent on the weather, and rain may delay the closures. To receive the most recent information on closures and detours please sign up for text alerts and email blasts (more information below). Detour signage will be in place including signage to the hospital. Plan to use alternate routes and avoid the intersection whenever possible.
 
Monday, July 10 – Friday July 14 (Day)
Crews will prepare for final paving of the roundabout next week. Other work will include repairing/replacing some sections of curb and gutter and trucking-in top soil for landscaping. There will be periodic flagging in the intersection during the day to allow truck access in and around the construction site. Please expect 5-10 minute delays travelling through the intersection during the day.

Nighttime construction of the Holman Highway 68 Roundabout Project will require traffic control with flagging on Highway 68, and closures of the Highway 1 off-ramp, Highway 1 southbound on-ramp and Pebble Beach Gate (entry and exit) for final paving. All other gates to Pebble Beach will be OPEN.
*Emergency access to CHOMP will be maintained throughout construction

Deeply Discounted Bus and Parking Passes
To help reduce congestion during construction of the Holman Highway 68 Roundabout, Monterey-Salinas Transit will be selling deeply discounted bus passes to individuals who live or work in the area affected by the construction zone. The bus pass is a great way to avoid traffic while saving on the cost of driving your car. 

In conjunction with the bus pass, the City of Monterey will provide deeply discounted parking at the Downtown Garages. When a customer shows their MST bus pass, they can purchase 20 daily entries to the parking garage for $20, which a 50% discount. From the Downtown Garage, people can use their MST bus passes  to get around Monterey, New Monterey, and Pacific Grove.
