City Seeks Input on PCH Safety Study Through Interactive Website

The Pacific Coast Highway (PCH) Safety Study will examine current road conditions and determine accident patterns based on roadway geometry, adjacent land-uses and other factors in Malibu.

Malibu residents are being asked to give input on a new website aimed to gather feedback on a study of a 21-mile stretch of Pacific Coast Highway in Malibu.

The website, malibu.metroquest.com, was created out of a partnership between the City of Malibu and the Southern California Association of Governments, according to Kyle Santiago of Arellano Associates, which was hired by the city to gather resident input.

The study will consider all modes of travel, including pedestrians, bicycles and cars, and will include recommendations for improvements along three areas:

  • Study Area 1: Topanga Canyon Road to Cross Creek Road
  • Study Area 2: Cross Creek Road to Busch Drive
  • Study Area 3: Busch Drive to Western City Limits

The meetings are set for 6 to 8 p.m. Sept. 13,  Sept. 20, Sept. 27, Oct. 4 at .

The first three meetings will focus on one specific study area. The fourth meeting will review material presented at the first three meetings.

Residents can provide feedback online at malibu.metroquest.com through Oct. 12.

TOPTOBU, I hope your reason to not allow Circle K to sell alcohol is because it is a chain store that will take business away from Malibu County Liquor, a local establishment.

Elena, Thank you, my sensibility is a curse.

Your comment can be taken that there shall be no detrimient to mororist safety when considering any safety improvements, such as for bicycle facilities. That directive will preserve existing vehicle travel lane widths from further substandardization efforts of the bicycle lobby. Recreational bicycle riding by parades of club riders, and endurance training rides on PCH, subject both the bicycle riders and motorists to elevated risk. Pack riding of bicyclists should be addressed, with possible regulation to discourage the public safety risks it creates.

PCH Commuter.....that is one of the reasons...there are many other substantial reasons set forth in the Denial of the Appeal approved by the City Attorney...you should read it. You should be aware that the President of the Malibu Chamber of Commerce who represents the Circle K asked members of the Chamber to support the application without disclosing that it is one of his personal clients!

Jessica, any idea of how much the city is paying for the study and how much they will spend to hold the meetings?
