Document Description
The City of Huntington Beach proposes to widen the Brookhurst Street/Adams Avenue intersection in all directions in order to increase capacity and improve traffic operations at this location. The proposed project would add travel lanes on both roadways. The following new travel lanes are proposed: two additional northbound right-turn lanes (Brookhurst Street); one additional southbound right-turn lane (Brookhurst Street); one additional eastbound through lane (Adams Avenue); and one additional westbound through lane (Adams Avenue). The proposed intersection widening would require right-of-way acquisition on all four legs of the intersection on both sides of each street. The proposed project would require approximately 31,230 sf of ROW acquisition, predominantly from commercial properties but with one partial residential land acquisition (approximately 143 sf). The limits of construction on Brookhurst Street will be approximately 1,000 feet north of Adams Avenue and 800 feet to the south. The limits of construction along Adams Avenue will be approximately 1,300 feet to the west of Brookhurst Street and 1,200 feet to the east. One bus turnout would be added to an existing bus stop on Brookhurst Street for northbound buses north of Adams Avenue. The project would include removal of commercial parking areas in addition to demolition of a commercial structure and a portion of a residential block wall. This proposed street improvement and intersection project would occur in a single phase, with construction activity taking place on all four quadrants of the intersection concurrently.
