Highway 92, the long, narrow, winding, mostly two-lane road into Half Moon Bay bordered by nurseries and farms, plays an important role in the Coastside economy. The road connects the Coastside to the towns “over the hill,” allowing residents to commute and bringing tourism dollars to local coffers.

However, as any Coastsider is likely to tell you, traffic, particularly on holidays and weekends, can quickly make the highway a nightmare. Emergencies can close the road for hours. At the Half Moon Bay City Council’s priority setting session last month, traffic congestion was flagged as a major issue.
