Here’s my solution for the Highway 1/Big Sur corridor: I propose there be three toll booths for north, south and east entries onto the Highway1/Big Sur access route, with a $10 fee—waived for residents, workers and property owners—or what is determined to be a sufficient fee to cover the costs of rerouting the slide areas and maintaining the Big Sur corridor.
As a native Californian (Santa Cruz), I am shocked that this idea has not been implemented. I visit Pennsylvania often, and their toll roads are well maintained. California needs to catch up to Pennsylvania.
