Document Description
University Drive is designated "Major Highway 6-Lanes" by the City of Irvine General Plan Circulation Element. According to a traffic analysis conducted for the proposed project, the University Drive segments from MacArthur Boulevard northbound ramps to Campus Drive currently operate at unacceptable levels of service, and will continue to worsen over time without improvements. The proposed project would provide a third travel lane with curb and gutter in each direction and sidewalk on the eastbound side of University Drive from Campus Drive to MacArthur Boulevard. The roadway alignment would not be altered and medians would typically be 14 feet wide to minimize pavement modifications at the medians and impacts to median utilities, lighting, and landscaping. These improvements would address existing deficiencies and complete this segment of University Drive consistent with the City of Irvine General Plan Circulation Element.
