The City has begun the design of a new traffic signal at the intersection of Gregory Lane and Elinora Drive. This project is part of an ongoing effort to enhance safety for vehicles, bikes and pedestrians at this intersection. Vehicles at this intersection currently experience difficulty and delay exiting Elinora Drive onto Gregory Lane during the morning commute hours, a traffic signal will greatly improve access and safety. The traffic signal will also provide a controlled crossing location across Gregory Lane for students of Sequoia Elementary and Middle schools and Strandwood Elementary School. The public will have an opportunity to provide input on a preliminary design at a public meeting this spring. Construction is anticipated to begin in 2019. The project is paid for through a combination of $113,000 in local funds and $544,000 in Measure J grant funds. The total estimated project cost is $657,000.
