Document Description
To improve the level of service (LOS) and vehicular capacity of the intersection the Proposed Project would widen and restripe an approximate 1,500-foot portion of Whittier Boulevard from approximately Chantry Drive to the west and Hacienda Boulevard to the east and restripe the northbound approach of Beach Boulevard. Improvements would consist of the addition of an exclusive eastbound right-turn lane and the addition of a third westbound left-turn lane. The exclusive eastbound right-turn lane would provide 200 feet of storage, however a defacto right-turn lane would continue along the Whittier Boulevard frontage to Chantry Drive/Lindauer Drive to maximize the available storage for this lane. The storage for the westbound left-turn lanes (inclusive of the additional third lane) would provide 465 feet of storage. There would be no U-turns allowed on Whittier Boulevard at either Beach Boulevard or Hacienda Road; same as the existing condition. The Proposed Project would also include the modification of the traffic signals at the intersection as well as all incidental utility relocations and signage modifications (e.g. relocation of existing fire hydrants within the project area per City Standard W-2 after curb and gutter relocation; valve lids to be raised/adjusted after final pavement).
