Document Description
The project area encompasses Pacific Coast Highway (PCH) and Del Prado Avenue in the City of Dana Point, extending from Copper Lantern on the east to Blue Lanterns on the west, within the Dana Point Town Center. The City of Dana Point is proposing the Pacific Coast Highway/Del Prado Avenue Phase I streetscape improvements for the Dana Point Town Center. Implementation of the proposed project will re-establish two-way circulation for both PCH and Del Prado. In addition to the return to two-way operations, the proposed improvements along PCH include traffic signal improvement/modifications, striping, and signing modifications, improved transit stops, and initial traffic and beautification related modifications to the "gateways" at Blue Lantern and Copper Lantern. The traffic signal improvement/modifications include new signals at Ruby Lantern and new intersection between Blue Lantern and Ruby Lantern. In addition, modifications are also proposed at other traffic signals within the project area to accommodate the two-way travel proposed for the two arterials. Other improvement include the incorporation of landscaped medians, street improvements as needed to accommodate bus turnouts and u-turns at designated locations, the modification of certain vehicular access points and the relocation of some on-street parking. Some of these improvements will require acquisition of rights of way for sidewalk easements, to accommodate the refined project design. The curb and gutter of PCH will generally remain in the existing location. A two-lane left-turn pocket will be included on southbound Golden Lantern at pacific Coast Highway, along with other key signing and striping adjustments to accommodate the change to two way traffic and the associated traffic volumes.
