Next week the Holman Highway 68 Roundabout construction crews will be striping the pavement and installing signage so the intersection will be crisp and clear in time for Car Week; all lanes will be open for Car Week!
In observance of Car Week, there will be no construction work August 12 - August 20.

CLOSURES: This coming Sunday, Monday, and Tuesday nights, crews will stripe the roadway and roundabout. The Highway 1 Southbound on- and off-ramps will be closed, as will the Pebble Beach Highway 1 Gate entrance and exit. Please use detours:
There will be access in both directions on Highway 68, but please expect 10-15 minute delays; expect flaggers for traffic control.
There will be emergency access at all times
August 7 - August 11 Day work (8 a.m. - 6 p.m.)
On Monday August 7 crews will pour concrete for the island at the top of the southbound Highway 1 off-ramp (to Highway 68), expect flagging in the right lane and some delays.
Monday through Wednesday, crews will install the trench a drain at the Carmel Hills Professional Center driveway. This work will be staged so that one side of the driveway will be accessible at all times using flaggers. Steel plates will be used to provide full access at the end of each work shift. Crews will also be working on the installation of roadside signage, irrigation and landscaping.
Driving Tips: 4 Simple Steps to Drive a Roundabout
Step 1: YIELD – to vehicles, bikes and pedestrians already in the intersection (vehicles in the roundabout to your left have right-of-way)
Step 2: RIGHT – IN to enter the roundabout
Step 3: RIGHT – OUT to exit the roundabout (look for signage to find your exit and don’t forget your turn signal)
Step 4: ROUNDABOUT (if you miss your turn, don’t panic – take a lap and try again!)

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.
