By Joe Tash
The Solana Beach City Council on April 10 approved $100,500 for traffic calming projects along South Cedros Avenue.
The city will contribute $48,500, which will be matched by the Cedros Design District Association. An additional $3,500 will be contributed by the Solana Beach Brewery, for curb realignment at 111 South Cedros.
The list of projects will include curb popouts and landscaping at Rosa Street; a raised pedestrian crosswalk near 312 South Cedros; a decorative crosswalk at Lomas Santa Fe Drive at the entrance to the South Cedros Design District; realigning the curb and widening sidewalks at 111 South Cedros; constructing raised curb planters at various locations where the pavement is currently striped to mark parking areas; and adding decorative paintings at all crosswalks.
The city’s contribution will come from TransNet funds, a voter-approved sales tax to pay for transportation-related projects, said a city staff report.
