Santa Fe Avenue Project
Latest Updates — April 2022
Traffic signal upgrades and construction are underway on Santa Fe Avenue, and is projected to be completed by Fall 2022.
The contractor is scheduled to perform work Monday through Friday from 7:00 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. No parking signs will be posted a minimum of three days prior to the start of work. Efforts will be made to maintain as much parking as possible. Intermittent intersection closures will be necessary to complete this project. While the contractor will attempt to open streets as soon as it is safe to do so, we encourage the use of alternate routes during work hours. Residents are encouraged to keep away from street and construction activities, reduce water runoff from driveways and lawn irrigation into the street before or during construction activities.
Traffic signal upgrades are coming to Santa Fe Avenue between Wardlow Road and Anaheim Street and Anaheim Street between Santa Fe Avenue and Oregon Avenue. Traffic signal improvements include larger signal indications, new protected left-turn arrows, pedestrian countdown signals, upgraded signal integration with emergency vehicles, vehicle and bicycle detection, fiber optic cable communication upgrades, LED safety lighting, pedestrian push buttons, and ADA accessible curb ramps.
New signage and sharrow markings are also planned for Santa Fe Avenue between Wardlow Road and Pacific Coast Highway to increase awareness and safety of bicyclists. Existing parking and vehicle travel lanes will remain as is and bollards will not be installed.
A community meeting was held by on Thursday, October 7, 2021, reviewing the project plan along Santa Fe Avenue.
