US 101 Corridor Mobility Plan: Atascadero
Connecting communities within and across the region to improve travel time reliability, safety and modal choices for the efficient movement of people and goods.
Several needs areas have been identified in the US 101 Corridor throughout Atascadero to address issues brought forward by both the public and technical analyses performed as part of this study. SLOCOG and the consultant team are seeking your input on which improvement concepts will work best to improve mobility and access along this important transportation route, while preserving the unique environment that makes San Luis Obispo County a great place to live.
US 101 through Atascadero was selected for further analysis because it subject to a higher rate of traffic collisions than other parts of the corridor in the county. It also has a major gap in parallel connectivity between Atascadero and Templeton which impacts both automobile traffic and cyclists. The public expressed significant concern about the safety of several interchanges through the city and congestion along the route. While not as congested as Pismo Beach, peak period traffic is subject to sporadic slowdowns that increase the danger of rear end collions.
We are looking for comments on improvements proposed for Arroyo Grande and Pismo Beach, San Luis Obispo, Atascadero, or Paso Robles. Essentially, this study will prioritize improvements that enhance mobility on US 101 by reducing congestion. Improvements providing the most benefit to the highway will have the highest priority, while those showing limited or no benefits to the highway will not be considered in this study.
To provide input, click on a needs area to see the proposed improvement concepts. You may provide comments on the improvement concepts shown, or you can suggest another option that is not listed. All public input will be summarized to help inform the development of a multi-modal improvement package for each Focus Segment.
