US 101 Pismo Congestion Relief Pilot Project


Paul Valadao, PE

Caltrans Project Manager

Paul’s excellent presentation was about the US 101 Pismo Congestion Relief Pilot Project. The project includes widening the southbound shoulder of US 101, widening four existing bridges, construction of a Park-and-Ride lot at Mattie Road and Price Street, and the construction of a retaining wall between US 101 and Price Street at the Pismo Rock.
