Mission Avenue, located between Horne Street and Coast Highway, is scheduled for renovation starting October 24, 2013, ending Summer 2014. The project will take Mission Avenue to a four lane, two-way street and reduce it to a two lane, one-way street. Mission Avenue will be converted to a west bound route only. Seagaze Drive, one block south of Mission Avenue, will be converted to a one-way east bound route creating a one-way couplet system in the Downtown area.
Project components on Mission Avenue include:
- New widened sidewalks 5’ to 30’ in width
- Intersection bulb outs for pedestrian crossing
- New landscaping
- New irrigation
- Street furniture
- Decorative Street Lights
- Green painted Sharrow Lanes for shared bicycles and auto us (along Mission, Seagaze, and Cleveland)
- 20 reverse angle parking spaces, 19 parallel spaces
- Phased construction program, 2 blocks at a time, one side of the street. Access to all businesses will be maintained at all times.
- Programmed space for public art.
