Document Description
NOTE: Recirculated The project proposes to improve the Emerald Bay Community main entrance at PCH and Shamrock Road. The improvements consist of widening Shamrock Road ranging from 25-30 ft, the relocation and reconstruction of the existing guardhouse which will be relocated ~40 ft north of the existing location, grading of Shamrock Road and the adjacent slope to accommodate the widening of the road and landscaping. A traffic signal, a raised median at the intersection of PCH and Shamrock Road and street striping and signage will be constructed within the Caltrans right-of-way. A draft MND was originally circulated for public review on June 3, 2009. A number of refinements to the project have been included related to the proposed construction improvements within the Caltrans right-of-way on PCH. Specifically, the refinements include: widening PCH by 5' at the northbound right turn pocket, providing an 8' sidewalk area for the existing OCTA but stops on the northwest quadrant to meet ADA standards, revising roadway geometrics on PCH to maintain the existing 7' wide southbound right shoulder, revising the raised median island on PCH from 2' in width to 1' width, increasing the northbound right turn pocket from 14' to 16', increasing the southbound left turn pocket length from 200' to 250' and increasing the southbound acceleration lane pocket length from 300' to 400'.
