Coastal Commission Approves the North Coast Corridor Program
On August 13, 2014, the California Coastal Commission voted to approve the North Coast Corridor (NCC) Program’s Federal Consistency Certification, Local Coastal Program amendments for the four affected corridor cities – San Diego, Encinitas, Carlsbad and Oceanside - and the Public Works Plan/Transportation and Resource Enhancement Program (PWP/TREP). The PWP/TREP includes a package of highway, rail, transit, bike/pedestrian, environmental and coastal access improvements along San Diego’s North Coast Corridor—a 27-mile stretch from La Jolla to Oceanside—over the next 30 years. The document serves as the master permit and implementation blueprint for the NCC Program.
Following the Coastal Commission’s decision, work on Phase 1 of the NCC Program will begin in 2016.
Since the August 2014
approval, minor changes and clarifications to the NCC PWP/TREP had been
identified by the California Coastal Commission, Caltrans, and SANDAG.
