Roundabout Concepts for Calif Av, Moss Beach

MCC commissioned Roundabout Expert Michael Wallwork to prepare roundabout concept designs for California Ave at Hwy 1 in Moss Beach. The concept plans provide an idea as to approximate size and shape of possible roundabouts at this intersection. MCC provided these to the County for consideration as intersection improvements are contemplated.

The close proximity of the frontage road Carlos is the most difficult part of the design, although acute right turns and vehicle conflicts are probably no more restrictive or dangerous than existing conditions. Wienke Way, the fifth leg of the intersection, is accommodated by rerouting highway access slightly north. Vehicles entering the highway from Wienke would turn right only, and would go around the roundabout in order to head north on the highway.

Next step for California Ave intersection is a formal Intersection Control Evaluation (ICE) as required by Caltrans when intersection improvements are contemplated.  The ICE for Cypress has already determined that “a multi-lane roundabout will better improve operations, increase safety, and be more contextually sound, as compared to a signal.” (evaluation - 10% design - Wallwork review)  These two intersections must be considered together for a context-appropriate circulation plan for Moss Beach. Connect the Coastside draft plan indicates that Cypress and California are the only Midcoast highway intersections that have sufficient current and future side street traffic volume to warrant signalization or roundabout.

Tree Ordinance Update Workshop 11/28/18

San Mateo County Planning Commission will hold a public workshop to consider a new Protected Tree Ordinance that would replace the Significant and Heritage Tree Ordinances.

Nov 28, 2018, 9:00 – 11:30 AM
400 County Center, Board of Supervisors Chambers

Meeting objectives are to provide the Planning Commission and members of the general public opportunity to review the proposed Protected Tree Ordinance, ask questions and provide comments.

The proposed ordinance retains the protection thresholds of both current ordinances, increases protection of indigenous species, and streamlines permitting for a small class of trees considered nuisance or invasive species (including blue gum eucalyptus and also Monterey pine in designated high fire hazard areas).

Early next year there will be a presentation at MCC, and circulation of an environmental review document before formal consideration of the final document by the Planning Commission.
