Guard Rail on Overland? Community Meeting May 6

Traffic and pedestrian safety both need improvement. Will the installation of a guard rail at Overland and Freshman make a significant difference? The Public Works Department Mobility & Traffic Engineering Division will hold a virtual community meeting Thursday, May 6, 2021 at 6:00 PM.

In late 2020, the Public Works Department was asked by residents to consider the installation of a guard rail along the westerly side of Overland Ave, south of Freshman Dr. This request was raised to address residents’ concern over roadway-departure type collisions occurring as southbound motorists travel along to curved section of Overland Ave.

Meeting Details: At this virtual community meeting, Mobility & Traffic Engineering Division staff will share information regarding: (1) Available traffic volume and collisions data; (2) Standard requirements for consideration of guard rails; (3) Culver City bikeways, as approved by City Council in June 2020; (4) Recent grant award from the State Highway Safety Improvement Program (HSIP) to fund the installation of high friction surface treatment on the subject segment of Overland Ave, as a countermeasure to address roadway-departure type collisions; (5) Other planned signage and marking improvements; and (6) Future project steps.

Residents from the community are invited to provide input on the presented proposals and share related traffic operation and safety concerns.

Meeting agenda and materials are available on the City website.
