Abstract
BTP - The BTP consists of an evaluation of existing conditions within the City of Imperial Beach, as well as future land use plans and anticipated development and population densities, to determine the best way to accommodate, improve, and promote safe and efficient bicycle travel within the City. Recommendations consist of Class 1 bicycle paths, Class 2 bicycle lanes, and Class 3 bicycle routes. The intent is to provide a comprehensive and coordinated plan for bicycle transportation that benefits the entire City so that specific proposals for bicycle-related improvements may be evaluated for conformance with the BTP. These future projects may require right-of-way acquisitions, modification of vehicle travel lanes, sidewalks, curbs, gutters, crosswalks, signage, and other modification for the public right-of-way. The specifics of potential future projects cannot be determined until such time as they are proposed. One project, the ECO Bikeway Palm Avenue Traffic Calming Project, has been proposed to date. This EIR provides project-level analysis of that project. Future projects would be subject to additional review under the California Environmental Quality Act (CEQA). That review could lead to the issuance of a Categorical Exemption, Negative Declaration, Mitigated Negative Declaration, or EIR depending upon the project specifics and the potential for significant environmental impacts. ECO Bikeway Palm Avenue Traffic Calming Project - The proposed project BTP include the reclassification of Palm Avenue, between 3rd and the 7th Streets, from a four-land collector to a two-lane collector with a two-way left turn lane. This reclassification will allow for modifications to existing motor vehicle travel lands, parking areas, medians, landscaping, sidewalks, curbs, gutters, and signs and the addition of Class 2 bicycle lanes along Palm Avenue. The purpose of the project is to provide an improved bicycle connection between the Bayshore Bikeway and the beachfront commercial area in Imperial Beach. The proposed bicycle lanes, traffic calming measures, and associated improvements within the Palm Avenue right-of-way are in conformance with the Imperial Beach ECO Route Bikeway proposed in the City's 1994 General Plan Circulation Element: " Curb extensions along Palm Avenue between 3rd Street and 7th Street; " Potential median curb installation at Carolina Avenue, 4th Street, and 5th Street for westbound Palm Avenue and Corvina Street for eastbound Palm Avenue; and " Westbound Palm Avenue land transition from two to one lane, either on Palm Avenue west of 7th Street or at the SR-75 and Palm Avenue intersection.
