CITY OF CORONADO <br /> <br />TRAFFIC OPERATIONS COMMITTEE <br /> <br />MEETING MINUTES <br /> <br />May 24, 2018 <br /> <br />A meeting of the Traffic Operations Committee (TOC) was held on Thursday, May 24, 2018, at 2 p.m. in the Council Chambers. Committee members Jon Froomin, Richard Grunow, Jim Lydon, <br /> Cliff Maurer, and Ed Walton were present. Principal Engineer Jim Newton was also present. <br /> <br />Minutes of the April 26, 2018, Meeting – Mr. Maurer moved to approve the minutes; Mr. Walton seconded the motion and it passed, with Mr. Grunow abstaining. <br /> <br />Oral Communications – None. <br /> <br />Request to Install a Blue Curb Zone in front of the Residence at 525 Palm Avenue – Mr. Newton said the applicant meets all the warrant criteria to have a blue curb zone installed. Mr. <br /> Lydon moved to approve the installation of a blue curb zone in front of 525 Palm Avenue; Mr. Maurer seconded the motion and it passed unanimously. <br /> <br />Recommendation regarding the Placement of Centerline Delineators on Adella Avenue at Maria Place – Mr. Newton reported that residents in the 700 and 800 blocks of Adella have concerns <br /> about speeding vehicles and traffic volumes. While discussing this, concerns about the intersection of Adella and Maria Place came to light. Of concern is that vehicles in the northbound <br /> direction that are continuing onto Adella are cutting the corner as they make the left-hand turn. When vehicles cut the corner they cross into southbound traffic and there is a potential <br /> for collisions. The existing centerline on Adella doesn’t go all the way to the intersection like it does in most intersections, so the centerline has been extended by about 30' with <br /> paint. While it influenced some drivers, based on observations, it doesn’t seem to have influenced a significant number. In addition, the radius of the curb return is large compared <br /> to other curb returns in town and may lead to this behavior. Mr. Newton noted that there have been no collisions for the last five years. <br /> It is felt that installing two delineators along the centerline of Adella might keep drivers on the right side of the street. Mr. Maurer was concerned that if someone is used to cutting <br /> the corner and delineators are there, it’s almost forcing them to stay in the oncoming traffic lane longer with the potential of a head-on collision. Mr. Froomin invited public comment. <br /> [Name inaudible], 808 Adella, said drivers frequently ignore the painted lines and drive on the southbound (wrong) side of the road. <br /> Lenny Clements, 835 Adella, said that when his home was being built the construction workers put delineators on the street to slow people down. His biggest concern is about speed. <br /> Maybe a stop sign at Maria would help. He likes the idea of delineators on the other side of Adella. <br />1
