Temporary Ramp Closure at Brisco Road

The northbound US 101 on and off-ramps at Brisco Road, and nearby intersections, experience severe congestion at peak travel times.

The City is investigating two project alternatives to alleviate this congestion. The first alternative closes northbound on and off-ramps at Brisco Road. The second alternative relocates the northbound on and off-ramps at Brisco Road.

The First Alternative:

  • Closes the northbound on and off-ramps at Brisco Road and US 101
  • Completes intersection improvements Camino Mercado and US 101
  • Completes intersection improvements at Grand Ave and US 101
  • Completes bridge widening on Grand Ave
  • Estimated cost $14,000,000
  • 1st Alternative
  • Undercrossing Exhibit
The Second Alternative:

  • Relocates the northbound ramps at Brisco to West Branch Street at Rodeo Drive
  • Completes intersection improvements at Grace Lane and Rodeo Drive
  • Complete intersection improvements at Grand Ave and US 101
  • Estimated cost $23,000,000
  • 2nd Alternative

Test Closure:

In order to better understand the impacts of closing the on and off-ramps at Brisco Road and US 101, a trial ramp closure will begin on September 29, 2015 and will last until July 11, 2016. Traffic will be monitored during that time and used to improve the design plans. Your input is valued, let us know your thoughts at brisco@arroyogrande.org.
