Caltrans Gleason Beach Roadway Realignment Project

Public Outreach

Ongoing community outreach and partnering agency coordination has been an essential part of the Gleason Beach Roadway Realignment Project at every stage of the project beginning with the EIR scoping meeting in 2014 held to identify environmental constraints through to the SR 1 Sonoma Coast Emergency Repair Town Hall meetings held in Spring/Summer 2019 to keep the community informed about multiple, ongoing roadway repairs critical to keeping the roadway operational.

Based on proactive dialogue with the community, Caltrans has continued to refine the project design to minimize environmental impacts that will keep the roadway operational for decades and to incorporate public access and design elements that will provide community benefits (for Changes Since the EIR click here).
