California 76 Widening

For several years, agency officials have said that finishing the 76 expansion, from two to four lanes, is among the top TransNet priorities. A rebuilt 76 was promised when the agency asked voters in 1987 for the initial sales tax approval. But just one-third of the project was completed.

The winding highway is heavily used by Riverside County residents headed to job centers or beaches on San Diego County's coast, and by many coastal motorists trekking to backcountry casinos east of Interstate 15.

Construction is on schedule for a December completion of the 5.5-mile widening of 76's middle segment, from Bonsall to Oceanside, officials said in April.

The third phase of expansion, from Bonsall to I-15, is expected to start in summer 2013, according to the California Department of Transportation.

If we took those promise breaking bureaucrats and politicians out to a bayonet course to get run through, the US Marines and Army would get LOTS of practice.  There would even be some left over for the Navy and Air Force....LOL!

US 101 is THE backbone of the Pacific coast from Bandon OR to Willets CA.  Industry, tourism and local traffic would be gone or severely crippled without it being in functioning condition in BOTH states.

You don't need the other party to agree when you make a promise, but when it comes time to get it done...

Resurrecting this thread as more work has been completed on SR 76 between Oceanside and I-15. The West Segment, between I-5 and Melrose Drive, was completed in 1999. The Middle Segment, between Melrose Drive and South Mission Road, was completed at the end of 2012. The East Segment is located between South Mission Road and I-15 and is divided into two phases. East Segment Phase 1 construction on the SR 76/I-15 interchange began in October 2012 and was completed in summer 2013. East Segment Phase 2 construction to widen and realign the roadway began in November 2014 and is anticipated to take about three years, finishing in fall 2017.

The project webpage contains maps and other details on the current project status: http://keepsandiegomoving.com/SR-76-Corridor/SR76-intro.aspx

The intended facility, upon build-out, will be (at minimum) a four-lane expressway with median barrier, bicycling improvements, and environmental improvements associated with the highway's proximity to the San Luis Rey River. Construction at this point continues on through 2016 to improve what is a very busy corridor, especially for traffic leading from Riverside County in the morning to Oceanside in the morning and the reverse in the evening. There are no plans to modify SR 76 into a full freeway at this time. The segment of SR 76 east of I-15 is not slated for the same level of improvements to be seen on the portion between I-5 and I-15.
