SR-56 upgrades begin


Caltrans is currently providing updates to SR-56 which include updated striping with new paint and the installation of reflectors to replace those that are missing or worn out. The current work being done on SR-56 is to help maintain existing public safety standards for drivers when driving along that section of the highway, according to Rob Knudsen, representative for Assemblymember Brian Maienschein.

Caltrans is expected to begin the final design for the widening of SR-56, an additional lane in both directions from Carmel Valley Road to Interstate 5, by the end of the year.
