Caltrans District 5 Experience

The following is a brief example of Caltrans experience in our local District 5 area.  Please contact us for a more expanded experience profile.

Highway 227 Corridor Study 2001-2002- Preliminary work on PSR/PR. Coordination with City, Airport Authority, Caltrans and local property owners on ultimate roadway geometrics for Highway 227 (Broad Street/Edna Road) Orcutt Road to Price Canyon Road. Mr. Orosz was the lead Caltrans District 5traffic engineer in the development of the geometric design criteria and travel forecasting for the corridor. Access management strategies and coordination with multiple jurisdictions and major land developments along the corridor were implemented.
Highway 41 at Highway 1/Main Street: Preliminary Roundabout Design and alternative improvement concept report.Stephen Orosz was the lead traffic engineer on the scoping of the roundabout development. Coordinated with District 5 engineers, the City of Morro Bay and the residents of the City to evaluate the potential benefits of the installation of a roundabout at this location. The technical intersection evaluation using the Highway Capacity Manual was used and presented to the project team.
Highway 1 and Morro Bay Boulevard – Roundabout Design Evaluation– Mr. Orosz worked with the City of Morro Bay and Caltrans on the preliminary design and feasibility of the construction of a modern roundabout at the intersection of Morro Bay Boulevard/Quintana Road adjacent to the southbound Highway 1 ramp system. The design study included engineering and landscape design elements for the roundabout concept.
Highway 101 Northbound Ramps at Milpas Street – Roundabout Feasibility Study and Construction:Mr. Orosz was the lead traffic engineer responsible for the feasibility studies and construction documents for the preliminary and final roundabout designs. The scope of the work included geometric design, signage, pavement markings, and coordination with up-stream and down-stream traffic signals.
Highway 192 at Highway 144 – Santa Barbara County’s first modern roundabout installation:Stephen Orosz was the lead traffic engineer working on the conversion of a five-leg multi-way stop controlled intersection to a modern roundabout design. The need for the roundabout was driven by excessive vehicular delays being experienced, high crash rates and unique intersection geometry. The installation was interim, and then after the trial period, was constructed as a permanent roundabout.
Highway 101 at El Campo Road PSR – Assisted private land owner and Caltrans PDT evaluate the interchange options including modern roundabouts for a proposed new interchange to replace an at-grade crossing of Highway 101 in Arroyo Grande.
