Big Sur Coast Highway Management Plan (CHMP)
The California Department of Transportation led a collaborative planning effort among diverse stakeholders, including state, federal, and local agencies, community organizations, and elected officials, to develop a management plan for Highway 1 along the Big Sur coast. The effort produced the Big Sur Coast Highway Management Plan, intended to establish coordinated management of the Highway 1 corridor along this widely treasured coastline. The management plan covers an area along Highway 1 from the Carmel River in Monterey County to San Carpoforo Creek in northern San Luis Obispo County.
Transportation Planning Fact Sheets are succinct and frequently updated documents that summarize statistics, and characteristics for State highways and State highway segments based off of Transportation Concept Reports (TCRs). TCR's are documents that establish a 20-year planning concept for each State highway through identifying deficiencies and analyzing current and projected operating conditions for the facility. Transporation Concept Reports / Fact Sheets are available for the following routes in Monterey County.
- State Route 1
- State Route 25
- State Route 68
- State Route 146
- State Route 156

Corridor System Management Plans (CSMP)
CSMPs provide for the integrated management of travel modes and roadways so as to facilitate the efficient and effective mobility of people and goods within California's most congested transportation corridors. Each CSMP presents an analysis of existing and future traffic conditions and proposes traffic management strategies and transportation improvements to maintain and enhance mobility. CSMP's will address State Highways, local roadways, transit, and other transportation modes.
District System Management Plan (DSMP)
The DSMP is a strategic and policy planning document detailing how the District envisions the transportation system will be maintained, managed and developed during the next 20 years.
