Pine Hills Road Pedestrian/Bicycle Safety

Description

The Pine Hills Road Pedestrian Safety project, from Colonial Drive to Bonnie Brae Circle, will address pedestrian and bicycle safety. The following recommendations from the 2018 safety study will be implemented:

  • Reconstructing Pine Hills Road between Colonial Drive and Bonnie Brae Circle with a raised median and dedicated left turn lanes to promote safety.
  • Widening the existing 5 foot wide sidewalk on the east side of the road, to a 12 foot wide shared-use path from Silver Star Road to Bonnie Brae Circle as part of the Pine Hills Trail.
  • Adding a 7 foot wide dedicated bike lane in each direction from Colonial Drive to Silver Star Road.
  • Providing intersection improvements for better access to Pine Hills Road from cross streets.
  • Adding crosswalk marking and detectable warning pads at intersections, cross streets, and driveways.
  • Adding a mid-block crossing location to increase safer pedestrian access between intersections.
  • Improving signage to better warn drivers of pedestrian crossing locations; including adding pedestrian signal at crossing locations.

Purpose

Pine Hills is one of Orange County’s largest communities with a rich history as a family-oriented, pro-business and multicultural community. There is a variety of land uses along the corridor, including residential, commercial, retail, schools and office uses. Over the years, Pine Hills has experienced an increase in residential-to-commercial land use conversions which contribute to the pedestrian/bicycle safety challenges along the corridor.

Status

Design of this project is about to begin.
