The City of Malibu is scheduled to begin work on the Pacific Coast Highway (PCH) Bike Route Improvements Project this Monday.
The first phase of the project will focus on the intersection of Morning View Drive and PCH.
Work will commence on or about July 7 and the City intends to be completed before August 19 when school is scheduled to resume.
Improvements to the intersection include the construction of a northbound right turn lane, traffic signal modifications, the relocation of the bus stop, paving, striping, and improvements to the bike route, drainage, and sidewalk. Together these improvements will serve to improve the flow of traffic at this key intersection that provides access to three local public schools.
The second phase of the PCH Bike Route Improvements Project includes intersection improvements at the intersection of Trancas Canyon Road and PCH, the installation of a bike lane on the ocean side of the highway in the Zuma Beach area and signage and striping improvements to the existing bike route between Busch Drive and the western City limits.
Phase II work is scheduled to begin after Labor Day with completion expected in Fall 2014.
Funding for this project has been provided by Metro, a grant from the federal Highway Safety Improvements Program and the City of Malibu.
