Caltrans proposes to realign a section of State Route (SR) 1 near Gleason Beach in Sonoma County (see INSET) to maintain SR 1, which is the only road connecting the communities of Bodega Bay and Jenner. The Project would provide a long-term, sustainable solution, protect State Route 1 from coastal erosion and maintain long-term local and regional connectivity for surrounding communities.

The Gleason Beach Realignment Project would construct an approximately 3,700-foot, two-lane roadway and 850-foot long bridge span over Scotty Creek. The two-lane roadway and bridge span would be 49 feet wide including 6- to 8-foot shoulders and a 6-foot sidewalk in the southbound direction to accommodate bicycle and pedestrian access. The existing box culvert and grade-separation structure at Scotty Creek would be removed.
The project also includes three separate access roads to existing Highway 1, as well as public improvements.
