Marine Avenue at Cedar Avenue Intersection Improvement Project
Document Type
NOE - Notice of Exemption
Document Description
The City of Manhattan Beach proposes to improve the existing signalized intersection of Marine Avenue and Cedar Avenue in the north-central portion of the City limits. Proposed improvements consist of approximately less than six feet of minor median (east side) shaving along Marine Avenue at its intersection with Cedar Avenue to accommodate proposed southbound dual left turn lanes. Other improvements include installation of a video pole and communication line within the median or sidewalk east of Sepulveda Boulevard, traffic signal modification with no pole replacements at the intersection of Marine Avenue and Cedar Avenue, and restriping of roadway pavement for improved operation and safety. No right-of-way acquisition would be required to implement the improvements identified above. Upon completion, the southbound approach of Cedar Avenue at Marine Avenue would result in one exclusive left turn lane, a shared left/through lane, and a right turn lane. The existing eastern crosswalk at Cedar Avenue over Marine Avenue would be removed to reduce pedestrian conflicts and improve operations and safety at the intersection. The existing eastbound Class II bikeway along Cedar Avenue would be maintained.
