Montara Mountain Tunnel

CalTrans wants to build this.

A tunnel can be in place sooner, be safer to drive, and be cheaper to build.

A team of independent geologists and engineers assembled by Supervisors Ted Lempert and Ruben Barrales has concluded that a tunnel could be a workable alternative to CalTrans' inland bypass of Devil's Slide. Citing advances in tunnel technology and recent tunnel projects elsewhere, they estimate that it would take no longer to build than the bypass at a cost of $60 million -- without the negatives of the bypass.
