The planned lane expansion on Via de la Valle may come significantly sooner than 2021, as previously expected. The two-lane road was initially designed to handle 10,000 average daily trips, but currently accommodates nearly 17,000.
From the RSF Review:
"On April 27, the Carmel Valley Community Planning board approved an extension of time for the widening — the project 14 years in the making received its site development permit in 2015 and it expired this month.
The project will result in a four-lane Via de la Valle from San Andres to El Camino Real to help serve a regional need."
