Base Line Safety Improvement Project - Improved Traffic Flow - 10/13/16
Yesterday afternoon the City's contractor removed traffic control for eastbound traffic on Base Line at SR-210 to eliminate closure of the number one lane since it is no longer needed at this time. With this removal of the traffic control devices, the dual left-turns lanes have been reopened for the westbound off ramp at Base Line and SR-210. In addition, the contractor is also going to open up the second eastbound left-turn on Base Line at Boulder Avenue this morning before noon. These traffic control revisions will provide improved traffic circulation and reduce delays for motorists traveling through Base Line. However, it should be noted that closure of the westbound number one lane on Base Line between Boulder Avenue and Seine Avenue will be closed until the landscape median work is completed. We anticipate the median landscape to be completed in November of 2016.
