Document Description
The City is proposing to permanently close to private automobile use the above noted 0.8 miles of Morrison Canyon Road, from the Proposed Western/Bottom Closure to the Proposed Eastern/Top Closure (in other words, from the intersection of the Road and Ridge Terrace to where the Road intersects Vargas Road. The proposed project would permanently enact the temporary closure conditions described above, which are active as of October 16, 2018. However, the proposed project will be analyzed against an assumed baseline of roadway conditions prior to the October 16, 2018 temporary closure. The closure would be implemented through a series of flexible delineators or bollards, the same or similar to the barriers currently utilized. One or more additional advanced warning signs and flashing beacons would be added along the Road. Since the barriers are mountable, emergency movement/access would not be hindered. In addition, the Road would remain open to pedestrian and bicycle uses because the barriers would be passable by pedestrians and bicyclists.
