Project Description:

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.
