Caltrans to hold Open House Forum June 26 on safety project at State Route 76 and Valley Center Road

SAN DIEGO – Caltrans has announced it is seeking public participation for a safety improvement project at State Route 76 and Valley Center Road. The proposed safety improvement includes constructing a new signalized intersection, constructing a roundabout, which would be the first of its kind in San Diego County, or a no-build alliterative.

A public meeting is scheduled for Thursday, June 26, from 5:30 to 7:30 p.m. at the Pauma Valley Community Center, 16650 Highway 76, in Pauma Valley.

There will be no formal presentation. The meeting will be an ‘Open House’ forum where participants will have an opportunity to speak directly with Caltrans representatives about the project and its environmental impacts. Display boards showing of all of the design alternatives will be presented during the open house.

The Draft Environmental Document will be available for review. The document can also be found on the Caltrans District 11 website at http://www.dot.ca.gov/dist11/Env_docs/SR-76ValleyCenterISEA.pdf.

Public comments will be accepted until Thursday, July 10. Comments may be submitted at the meeting by completing a written comment form or mailed to Allie Scrivener, 4050 Taylor Street, MS-242, San Diego, CA 92110.

    What is a ‘no-build alliterative’? It is a term I’m not familiar with.

    Given the traffic in the region, gamblers and commuters combined with those monster casino busses, a round about is the LAST thing that should be put in there. I’d vote for the ‘no build’ option. My in-laws from Utah snowbird here in Fallbrook and they make the rounds 3 or 4 times a week hitting the various casinos. They have one round about that has been in place in Prove for a few years now, and they can’t seem to ever exit the darn thing. It takes a certain amount of aggressive driving to handle those with ease. I don’t see that with many of the crowd that use 76.

    There’s a round-about at Cannon Road and Legoland Drive that works very well. The expense of adding a traffic signal seems like going overboard for that road at this time.

    It’s normally ok, but during AM/PM rush hours it’s like a no holds barred. I know because I work in the office building on the first block after the round about. Some people do not yield at all (they think everyone should yield for them)!
