THE CITY OF <br />CITY COUNCIL AGENDA REPORT <br />pLEASANTON. <br />1 0 <br />February 6, 2018 <br />Community Development <br />Traffic Engineering Division <br />TITLE: CONSIDER THE REVISED LAUREL CREEK DRIVE TRAFFIC CALMING <br />PLAN <br />SUMMARY <br />City staff has been working with the residents from the Preserve neighborhood to <br />develop solutions to address their traffic concerns along Laurel Creek Drive. A traffic <br />calming plan was developed and approved by City Council in November of 2016. After <br />implementation, analysis showed that vehicles continued to cut through and speed <br />through the neighborhood. <br />Staff has met with the Laurel Creek steering committee and revised the Laurel Creek <br />Traffic Calming Plan to include a new permanent half street closure at the intersection <br />of Laurel Creek Drive and Dublin Canyon Road. This will permanently block any <br />vehicles from making right turns or left turns from Dublin Canyon Road to southbound <br />Laurel Creek Drive. <br />The residents have collected the required signatures to show that a strong majority of <br />the residents support the revised traffic calming plan. <br />RECOMMENDATION <br />Approve the revised Laurel Creek Drive Traffic Calming Plan. <br />FINANCIAL STATEMENT <br />The estimated cost to permanently close southbound Laurel Creek Drive at Dublin <br />Canyon Road is $20,000. Funds are included in the City's Bi -annual Traffic Calming <br />Program, CIP No. 18555 in July of 2018. <br />The use of the 2018 Traffic Calming project funds for this project will eliminate the ability <br />to fund a new neighborhood project in 2018. <br />The maintenance cost for the "No Right Turn" signs will be covered through the Street <br />Division's Road Maintenance Program. Should the maintenance require more than <br />routine restriping, the Traffic Calming CIP would be used to complete additional <br />maintenance. <br />
