Live Oak Canyon Road / Trabuco Canyon Road Safety Improvements Project

PROJECT OVERVIEW

OC Public Works will complete a roadway improvements project to enhance roadway   safety and reduce the likelihood and severity of vehicular accidents. Temporary lane closures / brief traffic stops will be necessary to accommodate this work.

project details
 
Roadway safety improvements being performed include:

  • Installing a high-friction pavement surface treatment
  • Replacing / upgrading existing guardrails in certain locations
  • Installing rumble strips along the roads’ centerline
  • Updating signage
  • Grading and minor paving of shoulders to enhance law enforcement presence, and;
  • Improving water drainage facilities

 
Crews will not be removing any trees for this project. 

WHAT IS HIGH FRICTION SURFACE TREATMENT?

High friction surface treatment is a cost effective safety measure installed as a thin overlay to the existing roadway.  According to studies and past applications across the country, it does not encourage faster speeds and is effective in all weather conditions.  For more information, visit the following FAQ about High Friction Surface Treatments (HFST) pdf icon

TRAFFIC SAFETY DURING PROJECT HOURS

  • Daily lane closures will be limited to construction areas to minimize inconvenience and delays
  • Lane closures with brief traffic stops controlled by flag personnel with two-way access during construction hours
