The California Department of Transportation is leading a collaborative planning effort among diverse stakeholders, including state, federal, and local agencies, community organizations, and elected officials, to develop a management plan for Highway 1 along the Big Sur coast. The effort will produce the Big Sur Coast Highway Management Plan, intended to establish coordinated management of the Highway 1 corridor along this widely treasured coastline. The management plan covers an area along Highway 1 from the Carmel River in Monterey County to San Carpoforo Creek in northern San Luis Obispo County.
