Document Description
The Newport Boulevard and 32nd Street Modification Project has been developed to improve the intersection of Newport Blvd and 32nd Street in order to increase vehicular capacity and reduce existing traffic congestion to an acceptable level of service. The proposed project is located within a fully urbanized section of the City of Newport Beach and would add an additional northbound through lane along Newport Blvd from 30th Street to 32nd Street and add an additional southbound through lane along Newport Blvd from Via Lido to 32nd Street, terminating as a right-turn only lane at 32nd Street. Proposed modifications to Newport Boulevard would also include introduction of a raised, landscaped median and 6-foot-wide bike lanes along both sides of the roadway. Introduction of the 6-foot-wide bike lanes and widening of the roadway would result in the loss of 27 curbside public parking spaces on Newport Boulevard. Under current project design, the proposed project would acquire the vacant Wachovia Bank building and adjacent parking lot located at the northwest corner of Newport Boulevard and 32nd Street for conversion to a public parking lot. The existing structure and parking lot on both of these parcels would be demolished, and the two parcels would be converted to a public parking lot with minimum of 27 parking spaces to provide replacement parking for the loss of on-street parking. The proposed project may also require a partial ROW acquisition of the commercial property north of the vacant Wachovia Bank building and partial land dedications from two City-owned parcels. Existing bus stops on both sides of Newport Boulevard would be relocated to a location near each existing bus stop.
