City's contractor, DPM Construction, will begin construction on pedestrian improvements on Cathedral
Oaks at Santa Marguerita. This project will take approximately 15 working days to complete and will create
minor delays as one lane in each direction will be closed.
The project includes solar powered pedestrian activated Rectangular Rapid Flashing Beacons (RRFBs) on
Cathedral Oaks Road at Santa Marguerita Drive to provide an additional visual queue to alert motorists
when a pedestrian wishes to cross the street. In addition to the flashing beacons, the project will also
include: removing the dedicated turn lane from westbound Cathedral Oaks Road to northbound Santa
Marguerita Avenue; adding curb extensions for the north leg of the intersection toward the center of
Cathedral Oaks Road; and creating a median pedestrian refuge area.
The project is funded through a combination of Measure A Alternative Transportation Grants, Measure A
local funds and Transportation Development Account (TDA) funds.
Please use extra caution when traveling through this area during this construction period.
