El Campo Road Intersection

See our press release regarding the SLOCOG Board’s decision to support partial closure of four at-grade intersections on U.S. 101, including El Campo Road.

Two-Step Assessment Process

The El Campo Road/South County Highway Access Modifications Traffic Diversion Assessment considers the effects of potential closures of crossing access for non-emergency vehicles at four at-grade intersections on U.S. Highway 101 between the Traffic Way and Los Berros Road interchanges. Findings from this study helped the Board and other stakeholders reach a decision regarding closure. It will also help determine next steps for implementation at this site.

SLOCOG initiated a two-step assessment process to understand the technical implications of restricting access on this stretch of U.S. 101. 

Step-1 was to prepare an initial traffic displacement study that summarizes the potential detour routes and the safety and operational impacts that may be caused by changes to existing access and circulation patterns.  

Step-2 of the process was to prepare a more in-depth study to understand circulation impacts, examine weekend and potential seasonal fluctuations in travel, and assess development growth along the corridor.
