Carmel Valley Road Improvements EIR, Monterey County Public Works Department

EMC Planning Group is currently preparing this EIR to address significant impacts associated with intersection improvements along Carmel Valley Road in Monterey County. The intersection improvements proposed require removal of a portion of an historic tree row. Other issues addressed in the EIR include impacts to vegetation and wildlife, and visual impacts, as well as alternatives.

The proposed project is generally divided into two areas: the Boronda Road and Rancho Road intersection with Carmel Valley Road and the Country Club Drive intersection with Carmel Valley Road. Both intersection improvement projects are needed to improve safety, reduce traffic congestion, and rehabilitate the roadway facilities at or near the intersections. Approximately 0.12 acres, or 5,378 square feet, of additional right of way will be acquired.
