VIDEO. Bike lane disappears for about 100 yards. John Doughty, Public Work for City of Half Moon Bay, said this is temporary.
“I wanted to give you a heads-up that we are not satisfied with the current layout and are currently in the process of re-design of construction zone with Caltrans.
This will include a dedicated lane for bicycles and likely detour of vehicles (and bikes) at Main/Higgins Canyon Road. Final design is not complete, but for the safety of all, bicyclist may be routed to Seymour-Main-Higgins Canyon Road for their safety—something we are still discussing. Cannot get into too much detail as we are in process of design. Caltrans seems amenable to the concepts.
Immediate steps taken includes signing the zone for 25 MPH speed limit and placement of a VMS sign at transition point alerting folks of speed change and potential presence of bicyclists. We also relocated barriers to improve line of site at Main/Higgins Canyon and Highway 1.”
