In September 2013, the Rancho Santa Fe Association formed an ad-hoc Intersection Committee to work on evaluating conceptual designs for signalized intersections in the Ranch as an alternative the proposed roundabouts on Del Dios Highway/Paseo Delicias.
Since that time, the committee has only met once and work was temporarily suspended due to staffing changes at the Association. As the Association has hired Larry Roberts to replace associate planner Chris Livoni, one of his first tasks was to get to jump-start the Intersection Committee.
According to Roberts, design consultants are updating their drawings for the traffic signal alternatives at the intersections of El Camino Del Norte, La Valle Plateada/El Montevideo and Via de la Valle. He hopes that the committee will be able to meet to review the design progress sometime in September.
The county continues to process the project’s environmental impact report.
