Highway 68 Roundabout Booster Has No Clue

I think the TMAC in its entirety has no clues.

The roundabout works like this – once you enter, you yield to oncoming traffic and you can only go right. TAMC officials said the one way turns make it safer than drivers trying to turn left against oncoming traffic.

First if you see oncoming traffic in the roundabout you are going the wrong way. Second you yield to traffic that is in the roundabout when you are entering the loopy thing.

Here’s a video clip of what possibly could be a TAMC official in a Marina roundabout

Presidio May Build New Gate On Highway 68

Pending congressional approval. Since we know how much Sam the Sham Farr cares about our national defense, it won’t happen.

The plan offers two alternatives: a centralized campus at the Presidio, consolidating instruction and troop housing there, with two new barracks buildings, three instructional buildings and four multi-level parking garages, or construction of the new barracks and instructional buildings at Ord Military Community, with parking garages at the Presidio.

It also calls for a future access gate to the installation at Holman Highway.

Most of those projects, including the new gate, are scheduled for fiscal 2017 or later and have not been approved by Congress, Elliott said.

Fatal Holman Highway Head-On

Officer Larry Starkey of the California Highway Patrol said Phillip Johnson was westbound on Holman Highway about 11:20 p.m. when his motorcycle and a Nissan pickup collided head-on.

The driver of the pickup, a 43-year-old man from Seaside, apparently lost control just west of Scenic Drive, crossed the center line and continued into the path of Johnson’s motorcycle, said Starkey.

The force of the impact threw Johnson to the road. He died at the scene.

Holman Highway Improvements Starting

The Transportation Agency for Monterey County has announced that work will begin sometime in September on improvements to the entrance to the Community Hospital of the Monterey Peninsula from Holman Highway.

The project will include the addition of a left turn lane out of the hospital and additional through lanes.

Widen Holman Highway?

Several residents of Crest Road, a Pebble Beach street that runs parallel to Holman Highway, said noise from the highway is already disruptive. Building two more highway lanes will create more noise. Some residents said a sound wall should be part of the project.

David Dilworth, a Pacific Grove environmental activist, also said other alternatives need to be explored. “Pacific Grove is essentially an island,” Dilworth said. “You are only dealing with what one lane is doing.”

On one hand we have the Chamber of Commerce begging people to come to PG and shop, and on the other we have the gadfly “environmental activist” that will make you sit in traffic jams, breathing excess exhaust.

One: It’s only to the most busy part of the road – CHOMP.
Two: The Pebble Beach residents bought homes NEXT TO A STATE HIGHWAY. To expect tranquility there is just stupid.
