In 2009, the City of Oceanside adopted the Coast Highway Vision and Strategic Plan.

This project, called the Coast Highway Corridor Study, will assess existing and future transportation conditions along the corridor and on surrounding streets in order to identify the preferred approach to implementing the recommendations contained in the 2009 Coast Highway Vision and Strategic Plan.
