Document Description
The City of Palm Desert proposes to modify the existing right turn movement from westbound Fred Waring Drive to northbound Highway 111 from two dedicated right turn pockests to a single unrestricted free right turn. The existing two right turn pockets control the right turn movement from westbound Fred Waring Drive to northbound Highway 111 through the intersection utilizing the existing traffic signal. Right turns are permissive only during the green light phase and when traffic is clear. The project includes modification to the signal mast arms and signal poles at the northeast corner. Because the poles are being relocated, new footing will need to be installed at a size of ~3 ft diameter by 12 ft deep in order to ensure the stability of the new poles. A portion of the existing parkway, consisting of a low curb and minimal lanscaping, would be removed and paved with asphalt concrete. Signal and striping modifications will also be needed. This project will allow for unrestricted free access right turns from westbound Fred Waring Drive to northbound Highway 111.
