Officials Vote to Synchronize Traffic Signals on PCH

The Malibu City Council has voted to advance a plan to synchronize traffic signals on Pacific Coast Highway, a city official said Tuesday.

The council voted on Friday to move forward with the Pacific Coast Highway Signal System Improvements Project, according to Assistant City Manager Lisa Soghor, who called the move “a major step in realizing the top priority project of the city’s PCH Safety Study.”

“Ensuring safety on PCH is a primary concern for the city because it impacts every resident of Malibu every day,” Mayor Skylar Peak said.

“Getting our traffic signals synchronized and modernized will help us keep our families safe and keep traffic flowing on PCH so people can get where they need to go.”

The vote authorizes City Manager Reva Feldman “to execute a contract for the design of the project … (which) aims to improve traffic safety, congestion and traffic flow along an eight-mile stretch of PCH from Topanga Canyon to John Tyler Drive that has 12 traffic signals.

The Signal System Improvements Project will consist of new communication links, adaptive signal control systems, changeable message signs, closed-circuit television cameras, traffic loops and mid-block sensors that will enable Caltrans to monitor traffic flow and speed and remotely adjust signal timing in the moment.

Additional improvements include relocation of traffic signal poles, signal phasing, pedestrian countdown signals, Americans with Disabilities Act compliance upgrades, overhead warning signs, striping and stormwater conveyance work,” Soghor said.

The project is being funded through $13.7 million authorization of money from a half-cent sales tax — Measure R — approved by Los Angeles County voters in 2008 and extended in 2016 through Measure M.

“The city manager was authorized to negotiate and execute a contract for up to $1.7 million for the traffic engineering design services for the project, and a contract for up to $100,000 with Caltrans for quality assurance and oversight services of project administration documents,” Soghor said.
