About Connect the Coastside

Connect the Coastside is a community-based transportation plan to help improve mobility and safety for Coastside residents and visitors. It identifies programs and improvements for the Highway 1 and Highway 92 corridors to improve mobility and accommodate the Midcoast's future transportation needs. A key purpose of the Plan is to define priority projects that will then be eligible to apply for funding. 

The plan identifies a diverse range of road, highway and trail improvements. Categories in the plan include improvements to:

  • Bike and walking trails
  • Roadways and intersections
  • Pedestrian routes
  • Transit facilities and services
  • Parking

The Connect the Coastside project has involved a broad public outreach program to ensure that the final plan reflects the unique character and vision of residents and businesses and aligns with broadly held community values. The plan's proposed projects are at the pre-planning level and will require further assessment of environmental, right-of-way, engineering, and regulatory requirements; proposed projects are subject to change based on further assessment. Plan implementation will also require ongoing community engagement to refine proposed projects and to identify funding necessary to construct improvements.
