The Pasadena City Council is expected to approve the installation of two new traffic signals and a crosswalk in northwest Pasadena at its weekly meeting Monday night.
On the Council’s consent agenda on Nov. 5. is a recommendation for a new traffic signal at the intersection of Washington Blvd. and Garfield Ave. and mid-block traffic signal and crosswalk at 1790 North Fair Oaks Avenue.
California Professional Engineering, Inc. of La Puente, was awarded the contract with the lowest bid of $560,000. The firm has completed contracts totaling approximately $1.6 million on prior city projects since 2013, reports said.
A recent city review of area traffic volumes and traffic and pedestrian counts indicates that the mid-block crosswalk location at 1790 North Fair Oaks Ave. is warranted and in line with city pedestrian safety guidelines.
The installation of the pedestrian signal will enhance the safety of individuals crossing Fair Oaks Ave. and will allow signal coordination along the corridor to minimize motorist delays, according to city documents.
Council meets at 6:30 p.m. at City Hall, 100 N. Garfield Avenue.
