The Santa Cruz County Regional Transportation Commission (RTC) is pleased to announce a big milestone for the Highway 1 Corridor Investment Program. The final Tier I/II Environmental Impact Report (EIR) and Environmental Assessment (EA) for Highway 1, prepared in cooperation with Caltrans and the Federal Highway Administration, has been completed and approved.  This will allow the RTC to move ahead with its next highway construction project and planning for future projects.
