Transportation Planning Projects

Lake County Konocti Corridor Project

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.  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. 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).

Eleventh Street Corridor Multi-modal Engineered Feasbility Study

The proposed study will analyze transportation alternatives along the Eleventh Street corridor within the City of Lakeport. Expanding on a recent City prepared right-of-way evaluation, it will examine costs and options for Complete Street improvements with a focus on expanding multi-modal use and improving safety for non-motorized and transit dependent users of the corridor. Improvements along the subject corridor, which is one the City’s primary east-west arteries to the downtown and lakefront areas, would be consistent with several goals and policies of both the Lake County Regional Transportation Plan and the California Transportation Plan regarding multi-modal facility needs, accessibility and safety.

Highway 20 Northshore Communities Traffic Calming Plan and Engineered Feasibility Study

Along the northern shore of Lake County’s Clear Lake, State Route 20 serves a dual role as an interregional throughway as well as a “Main Street” through several unincorporated towns, with roadside recreational and commercial uses playing a large role in their day to day activities. The proposed project will analyze current conditions and formulate traffic calming projects including bicycle, pedestrian and transit friendly options intended to improve the attractiveness and overall livability of the area. Input from County, Caltrans and Tribal government representatives, along with a series of community workshops, will be used to develop prioritized lists of improvements.
