Document Description
The Proposed Project would improve the current intersection performance to an acceptable level of service and reduce traffic congestion. The Proposed Project would involve the following intersection improvements on each respective roadway, as follows: Bake Parkway • Maintain the existing six-lane facility (i.e., three travel lanes in each direction) • Construct one additional left-turn lane for northbound (NB) Bake Parkway. • Maintain a single southbound (SB) left-turn lane. • Construct a 9-foot-wide chevron-striped buffer zone in the SB direction. • Maintain an 8-foot-wide on-street bicycle lane for the NB direction to accommodate the improvements. • Provide a 7-foot-wide on-street bicycle lane for the SB direction to accommodate the improvements. • Realign the existing 5-foot-wide curb-adjacent sidewalk along SB Bake Parkway, south of the intersection, to accommodate the proposed design. • Reduce SB sidewalk width, north of the intersection, to 5 feet within the Proposed Project limits. • Relocate existing catch basins currently located on the northeastern corner of the intersection. • Relocate existing Southern California Edison (SCE) wooden poles currently located along SB Bake Parkway to accommodate the Proposed Project improvements. • Construct ADA-compatible curb ramps for the intersection. • Reconstruct the existing raised median, south of the intersection, to maintain a 2-foot-minimum median width. Additionally, remove the existing stamped-concrete material and replace it with cobblestone material up to the railroad limits at the existing bridge crossing. • Protect the existing median, north of the intersection, in place. Replace the existing stamped-concrete material with cobblestone material. • Remove and reconstruct an existing Orange County Flood Control District (OCFCD) access-roadway driveway located on SB Bake Parkway. • Relocate four SCE overhead powerline poles. • Construct a retaining wall near station 80+10 to minimize impacts on the existing OCFCD channel. Jeronimo Road • Maintain an existing four-lane facility (i.e., two travel lanes in each direction) • Construct one additional left-turn lane for westbound (WB) Jeronimo Road. • Maintain two left-turn lanes for eastbound (EB) Jeronimo Road. • Provide 8-foot-wide on-street bicycle lanes for both WB and EB Jeronimo Road. • Provide a 6-foot-wide bicycle lane between the through and right-turn lanes for EB Jeronimo Road as it approaches the intersection. • Provide a 12-foot-wide right-turn lane in the EB direction. • Realign the existing 5-foot-wide curb-adjacent sidewalk along both EB and WB Jeronimo Road to accommodate the Proposed Project design. • Provide an 8-foot-wide sidewalk at the existing bus stop locations. • Construct retaining walls along WB Jeronimo Road to minimize the required impact on the adjacent residential property. • Remove and reconstruct an existing OCFCD access-roadway driveway currently located on WB Jeronimo Road. The Proposed Project is also anticipated to require partial right of way acquisition of approximately 9,684 square feet.
