Unmet Transit Needs Public Hearing Notice

Public Hearing – Unmet Transit Needs

At this hearing, the APC will consider a list of potential unmet transit needs that has been developed by the Social Services Transportation Advisory Council.  The APC will determine if the list contains any “unmet transit needs,” consistent with the adopted definition.  Any of the needs that meet the definition will then undergo further analysis, the findings of which will be presented at a future public hearing. 

The purpose of this public hearing is to allow the public opportunity to comment on and/or suggest additions to the list of potential unmet transit needs prior to APC action.  For further information, please contact the APC office at 707-234-3314.

Konocti Corridor Project is now complete!

In a momentous gathering on Wednesday, Caltrans and local officials came together at State Route 29 at Konocti Rock Company Road to commemorate the successful completion of the $85 million Konocti Corridor project. This marks the first phase of a comprehensive safety initiative aimed at widening an 8-mile stretch of Route 29. The project’s funding was provided by Caltrans, the Lake Area Planning Council (Lake APC), and the Federal Highway Administration (FHWA).

The Konocti Corridor project serves the communities of Lakeport, Kelseyville, Lower Lake, and Middletown, as well as facilitating auto and commercial truck traffic between U.S. 101 and Interstate 5. With the expected increase in traffic volume, expanding this highway section to four lanes with controlled access will boost capacity and significantly improve highway safety. The newly constructed expressway aligns with the long-range plan to divert traffic from the northern end of Clearlake, where concerns regarding pedestrian and nonmotorized traffic safety have persisted.

Lisa Davey-Bates, Executive Director of Lake APC, who has dedicated 23 years to the project, highlighted the importance of the partnerships that paved the way for its progress. She expressed her deepest gratitude to the Caltrans staff, acknowledging their dedication, time, energy, and financial support in bringing the Konocti Corridor project to fruition. Since 1988, a team of experts has been working together to enhance the safety and efficiency of the roadway network for motorists, cyclists, and pedestrians in Lake County.

Upgrades to Highway Motorist Aid Call Boxes

Lake Area Planning Council (APC) as the local agency responsible for maintaining the Call Box Program in Lake County, the Lake Service Authority for Freeway Emergencies (SAFE), is currently working to facilitate a necessary, system-wide upgrade.

The majority of call boxes in Lake County operate on cellular service, and the service provider has recently transitioned from 3G to 4G network technology. Unfortunately, the internal radios of the call boxes were designed to work with the former 3G service. As a result, some boxes could become inoperable until their hardware can be upgraded for compatibility with the newer cellular signal.

Staff is working closely with the provider and technicians to upgrade the radios. However, progress has been delayed by the limited availability of the new radios and statewide demand.  While working through this upgrade process, staff continues to monitor and place call boxes in out-of-service status until they begin operating correctly.

Lake SAFE appreciates the patience of all travelers during this transition and upgrade. To report a call box not working properly, please call (707) 234-3314.
