Think there’s too much traffic on Hwy. 1 in Big Sur? Here’s how you can have your say

Caltrans is launching an effort to update management plans for Highway 1 in Big Sur.

With this summer’s increased — and sometimes dangerous — traffic jams on the popular and scenic stretch of roadway, the state road agency is holding various public outreach events in several locations throughout the corridor to get input on a Sustainable Transportation Demand Management Plan.

“The plan will provide a collaborative and comprehensive framework to address the increasing visitor demand along the Big Sur Coast in an efficient and environmentally sustainable way,” according to the plan’s website.

The review-and-update process is expected to last at least through November.

A public workshop will be held Tuesday from 4 to 5:30 p.m. at the Veterans Memorial Building, 1000 Main St. in Cambira.

Another public workshop will take place Wednesday at the Rancho Canada Golf Club, 4800 Carmel Valley Road in Carmel. The meeting runs 5:30 to 7:30 p.m.

Correction: An earlier version of this story incorrectly stated that a public workshop would be held in San Luis Obispo on Tuesday. The story has been corrected.
