Congratulations to the MNS team for their win on the Los Osos Valley Road Interchange Improvement! The US 101/Los Osos Valley Road (LOVR) Interchange Improvements Project represents a vital improvement for traffic capacity and circulation in southern San Luis Obispo.
The current three-lane Los Osos Valley Road interchange was built in 1962. As the City and population has grown, the interchange is in need of structural repair and widening to improve travel conditions and accessibility to a variety of transportation types. The purpose of the US 101/LOVR Interchange Improvements project is to maximize the efficiency of LOVR and the US 101/LOVR Interchange in order to improve functionality and accommodate the growing amount of traffic. LOVR serves as the only primary east/west corridor between South Higuera Street and the community of Los Osos.
MNS Transportation Division, Construction Management Team: Spotlight Project
The Pitkins Curve and Rain Rocks Shed project, located between Monterey and Cambria on California State Route 1 (Highway 1) was a major undertaking aimed at making a dangerous section of the scenic state highway safer for motorists.
The Pitkins Curve area of Highway 1 is part of an active landslide; rock slides are a fact of life here, rather than an unusual occurrence. Its geological composition is particularly unstable. Rock slides repeatedly closed the original road and presented a significant danger to motorists.
Foreseeing that Pitkins Curve would continue to be a major safety issue and an access impediment for the millions of tourists traveling through the area each year, not to mention a major maintenance and cost issue, the California Department of Transportation (Caltrans) developed an innovative solution to the problem.
