Thanks to our City for the new striping and red curb painting on the Crest. Particular thanks to Gabe Garcia, Traffic Engineering Manager for Culver City, for all his help with this and other traffic projects. This task is far from over. There are plans to review other parts of the Crest that are considered traffic hazards once the Ranch Road job is done.
An aerial photographic plan of the proposed new intersection traffic pattern at Ranch, Kelmore and Overland has been circulated on the Crest. Your Board solicited reactions and comments from our membership. Wow! Did we receive comments, and thank you to all who submitted them. The problems we’re trying to overcome are the speed in which the traffic comes down Ranch to Overland, the line-of-sight for the downhill Kelmore drivers at that point to see merging downhill Ranch traffic and the width of the intersection, which causes numerous safety hazards, not the least of which is pedestrian attempting crossing that expanse.
After summarizing the comments received from residents, your Board submitted a revised plan to the City. We hope to have their comments back in time to discuss at the General Meeting. Once a plan is agreed to, it will be installed on a trial basis for up to six months before being deemed permanent. This gives us a chance to comment on the layout and make adjustments, if necessary.
