City of Atascadero
Hwy 41 Corridor Improvement Study

Project Overview

The City is developing a plan for the future of Highway 41 Corridor between El Camino Real and San Gabriel Road.

The City’s primary goal is to provide safe connectivity for all users between the downtown and destinations along the corridor. Although the corridor is well connected for vehicles, it is not well connected for pedestrians and bicycles. The study will develop alternatives for use of the public roadway that focus on safety, access to businesses, and provide direction for future street, sidewalk, and drainage improvements that impact people, bikes, and vehicles.

The study will present a preferred street design for segments of the corridor so that when improvements are made, they are well connected and reflect the vision of the community. The planning process for the project is expected to be conducted between May 2015 and December 2015, with three rounds of public workshops. The Highway 41 Corridor Study project will involve engaging the community, developing a vision for the roadway’s future, assessing the existing conditions, analyzing opportunities and constraints, developing design criteria, and preparing preferred designs for the roadway segments as well as developing an implementation strategy.

A safe, connected, and convenient corridor is one of the best methods to encourage the use of alternative transportation modes and active recreation and provide easy access to businesses and other destinations. Providing choices for how to get around, as well as opportunities for recreation, have become priorities for many communities. An increase in the number of people walking and biking for transportation and recreation has a range of benefits, including some that can be measured, such as improved traffic level of service, and reduced vehicle emissions, traffic, and parking congestion. Other benefits may be harder to quantify but are no less important, such as improved public health, an enhanced sense of place and community, connection with nature, and economic development.
