SLO workshop to focus on Highway 227 safety

Residents and business owners along a section of Highway 227 between Tank Farm and Los Ranchos roads are invited to attend a workshop Thursday on increased traffic congestion and safety concerns.

Those concerns led the San Luis Obispo Council of Governments in June to fund an operational analysis of the corridor, according to a news release. Thursday’s workshop will give attendees a chance to learn more about the data being collected and offer feedback on issues and conditions.

Data findings and suggested solutions will be presented at future workshops. The study will explore short and long-term improvements to address traffic and safety along this stretch of Highway 227.

The workshop will be held from 6 to 8 p.m. in the Los Ranchos Elementary School library, 5785 Los Ranchos Road in San Luis Obispo. The workshop is being held in partnership with the city and county of San Luis Obispo, and Caltrans.
