As part of the construction of the Holman Highway 68 Roundabout, the traffic signals at the intersection of Holman Highway 68 and Highway 1 will be permanently removed on the night of Tuesday, May 30. Beginning on the morning of Wednesday, May 31, traffic going through the intersection will be controlled by yield signs.
This marks a major milestone and the beginning of the next phase of construction when crews will build the center island of the roundabout. According to construction manager Bobby Pentorali, “During this time, we will be building the heart of the roundabout, which is a complicated phase of construction given that the work area will be in the middle of the intersection with traffic traveling around it.”
During this phase of construction drivers exiting the Pebble Beach Highway 1 Gate will be not be able to access westbound Holman Highway 68 going toward Community Hospital and Pacific Grove. Drivers wishing to access westbound Highway 68 from Pebble Beach going towards Community Hospital and Pacific Grove will need to make a U-turn off northbound Highway 1 at Munras Avenue and then proceed to the Highway 1 off-ramp at Highway 68. Drivers from Pebble Beach will have full access to both northbound and southbound Highway 1.
