New Lanes on Grand Avenue

Posted on November 8, 2019


Vehicles on Grand Avenue

Recently, Grand Avenue was resurfaced from the bridge deck to 2nd Street. Fresh roadway provides us with an opportunity to make improvements to the lane configuration. On the south leg of the intersection, the road is wide enough to add a northbound right-turn pocket. Therefore, motorists trying to get to Montecito Shopping Center and Point San Pedro Road don’t have to wait so long behind cars going straight on Grand Avenue. The center line had to be shifted a little, so we observed the intersection to make sure buses traveling eastbound on 2nd to southbound Grand Avenue could make the turn without going over the centerline – all good! Even with just cat-tracked lane lines and floppies, people were happy to take advantage of the extra capacity.
