With the striping in place and the detection functional,
the Soquel Ave. protected left turn pockets are now in operation!
The goal of adding protected left turn pockets on Soquel Ave. has now been achieved. New coordinated timing plans have been implemented to include the new left turn phasing and will be monitored over the next couple of weeks. And although the main goal of this project has been achieved, there is still minor work and punch list items that need to be performed before the project is fully wrapped up.
In addition, the westbound bus stop will be reinstated on the nearside of the intersection in front of the car wash and the eastbound bus stop will be relocated to the farside of the intersection in front of the furniture store. By moving the eastbound bus stop, users coming to and from the Palo Alto Medical Clinic and/or making bus transfers will now only need to cross the intersection once, instead of twice.
Thank you again to everyone for your patience throughout the duration of this project.
