Submitted by the City of Laguna Beach:
Construction will begin Monday, March 4th to improve the streetscape on Broadway between Forest Avenue and Cliff Drive.
This gateway beautification project includes new decorative sidewalk, drought tolerant and native landscaping, water conscious irrigation, and three installations of public art. In addition, the intersection at Cliff Drive will be reconfigured to reduce the speed of vehicles turning onto Cliff Drive and to shorten the pedestrian crosswalk distance.
Working hours will be 8:00 am to 5:00 pm, Monday through Friday. There will be lane closures on Broadway between 9:00 am and 3:00 pm, while two-way traffic will be maintained at all times. Occasionally, access to Cliff Drive or Acacia Drive from Broadway will be restricted during working hours. Golden State Constructors, the City’s contractor, will make every effort to maximize access whenever possible.
Construction is scheduled to be completed by the end of May. The project is funded by the City of Laguna Beach and a federal transportation enhancement grant. For more information, please contact Mark Trestik, Assistant City Engineer, at (949) 497-0300.
