Laguna Canyon Road Corridor Improvement Assessment
8/8/2014  On Tuesday, August 19 at 6:30 p.m., the Laguna Beach City Council will receive a presentation from staff and RBF Consulting regarding the Laguna Canyon Road Corridor Improvement Assessment. The Assessment was conducted over the past year to generate and assess concepts for improving State Highway 133 and the Laguna Canyon Road corridor between the intersections of El Toro Road and Canyon Acres Drive. The report is a preliminary exploration of concepts to improve mobility for emergency responders, drivers, transit riders, bicyclists, and pedestrians along Laguna Canyon Road. It is important to note that Caltrans owns and controls Highway 133/Laguna Canyon Road. Both Caltrans and the Orange County Transportation Authority (OCTA) are serving as important resources during development of the Assessment report and will continue to work closely with the City and the community on improvements of the Laguna Canyon Road corridor. The purpose of the report is to start a dialogue with the community about the possibilities for improving the corridor. The report will be available for review in the City Clerk’s Office and on the City’s website starting on Friday, August 15, 2014.
