In July, ICHA directed the road slurry and striping contractor to implement recommendations A.6, A.19, & A.22 of the University Hills Transportation Study. This resulted in the elimination of the bike lanes on Gabrielino and Owen, raising some concerns in the community. In response, ICHA and the HRB, in consultation with former members of the University Hills Transportation Task Force, asked the engineering firm that helped draft the study to reassess the recommendations with a priority on pedestrians and bicycles over parking needs (see the lettersent to the community and posted on uhills.org). Once the engineering firm responds, the HRB (with input from former UHTTF members) will review the results and make a recommendation back to ICHA. The recommended changes will then be implemented as soon as technically possible.
During this process, ICHA is continuing planning and scheduling to complete all recommendations made in the Transportation Study. The goal of the University Hills Transportation Improvement Project is to complete all Engineering, Education and Enforcement recommendations by Fiscal Year 2021-22.
The next transportation-related priority that is being scheduled is the replacement of street signs, stop signs and parking signs throughout University Hills. Click below for details.
Thank you for your patience and cooperation during this project. For questions and concerns, please call Barbara Correa at (949) 824-3974.
