Project Description

San Diego NORTH COAST CORRIDOR Public Works Plan / Transportation & Resource Enhancement Plan
San Diego Association of Governments (SANDAG)
California Department of Transportation (Caltrans)

The San Diego North Coast Corridor Public Works Plan/Transportation & Resource Enhancement Plan (PWP/TREP) was prepared by SANDAG and Caltrans to implement an integrated program of mobility, coastal access, and natural resource enhancement projects along a 27-mile coastal transportation corridor in San Diego’s North County. The PWP/TREP consists of adding managed and general-purpose lanes to Interstate 5, double-tracking and station improvements for the LOSSAN rail corridor, constructing miles of public pedestrian and bicycle facility improvements, and preserving hundreds of acres of restored coastal upland and wetland habitats.

Ms. Winecki assisted SANDAG and Caltrans with preparation and Coastal Commission review of the Public Works Plan, Federal Consistency Review and companion Local Coastal Program Amendments for the cities of San Diego, Encinitas, Carlsbad and Oceanside necessary to entitle and implement the PWP/TREP improvements. Specific tasks included developing the procedural framework for the PWP/TREP, preparing and integrating project-specific environmental analyses, coastal development policies and implementation measures into the PWP/TREP policy consistency analysis, preparing local coastal program amendments to resolve identified policy conflicts, and representing the PWP/TREP at public workshops and public hearings. The California Coastal Commission unanimously approved the North Coast Corridor Public Works Plan, Federal Consistency Review and Local Coastal Program Amendments in August 2014.
