Holman Highway 68 Roundabout - Things are Moving Right Along

May 12, 2017
This was a very productive week for the crews, and the focus now is on constructing the sidewalks, curbs, gutters, and the splitter island along the southbound Highway 1 On-ramp.
As a reminder, there will be no left turn out of the Pebble Beach Highway 1 Gate for approximately 2 more weeks. This no left turn restriction will be in place 24 hours a day.
Upcoming Construction (May 22 - May 26)
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.
Day Work:
Crews are scheduled to work this Saturday, May 13th, during the day. This work will be behind the barriers, but there will be trucks entering and leaving the construction zone.
Next week daytime work will continue behind the barriers and is not expected to directly impact the traveling public. Additional congestion is expected in the eastbound direction along Holman Highway 68 because there will not be a dedicated right turn lane towards the southbound Highway 1 on-ramp.
Night Work:
No night work is currently planned for next week.

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.
