Document Description
*DUPLICATE SUBMISSION* see the following link for the correct posted Final https://ceqanet.opr.ca.gov/2020040061/5 The City proposes to permanently close an approximately 0.8-mile stretch of middle Morrison Canyon Road to private motor vehicles. Morrison Canyon Road, at its narrowest section, is a nine-foot-wide winding road in the City’s Hill Area, with a steep embankment on one side. Bi-directional automobile traffic has markedly increased since 2016 along this route, as evening, weekday commuters have sought to avoid traffic along Interstate 680 and/or Mission Boulevard. This increase in traffic has contributed to a considerable increase in two-way vehicle conflicts. Additionally, because many pedestrians and cyclists use Morrison Canyon Road as a route to access Vargas Plateau Regional Park east of the intersection with Vargas Road, the increase in traffic also presents an elevated risks of vehicle conflicts between motor vehicles and pedestrians and cyclists
