Caltrans to host meeting today on SR-67 safety measure options

Thursday, Aug. 22—A public scoping meeting on potential improvements to increase safety along a portion of State Route 67 will be held from 4 to 7 p.m. today at Olive Peirce Middle School, 1521 Hanson Lane.

The meeting will be hosted by Caltrans, which calls this the first stage in community discussions regarding possible improvement alternatives for the stretch of SR-67 between Willow Road and Shady Oaks Drive.

At the meeting displays will show what is being proposed and a comment table will be provided.

Caltrans is studying the feasibility of concrete median barriers down the center of SR-67, Joe Hull, office chief with Caltrans traffic operations told the Sentinel in June. The transportation agency is also working on a project report for the highway stretch from Vigilante Road in Lakeside to just south of Highland Valley Road that will provide engineering design and environmental analysis, he said, and will consider installing barriers for that entire section, installing them only in select areas, and “no build.”

Due to head-on collisions on the highway that have resulted in fatalities, residents have called for more safety measures.

Comments on Highway 67 safety measures can be emailed to ct.public.information.d11@dot.ca.gov or mailed to the Caltrans District Office at 4050 Taylor Street MS-121 San Diego CA 92110.

    The barriers will certainly help, but will take away from the area’s natural beauty. I think eliminating the shoulder parking would also help. Folks getting ready for the Mt. Woodson hike, or returning, are an added distraction to drivers. Also, reduce/eliminate (where reasonable) the opportunity for lefts. Last, but not least, lower the speed limit as you approach Mt. Woodson. I’ve been driving this stretch for the last 3 years, and at almost any given time of the day, the red flags go up. It is simply a poor layout/design for high speed and/or high volume traffic.

    Ditch the idea of unsightly barriers. Time to seriously consider a traffic light at Archie Moore & 67.

    I would also like to see it illegal for bikes to be able to use the 67 and the 78 to the wild animal park. They are a hazard for drivers on one of the most deadly roads.
