State Route 82 (El Camino Real) at Floribunda Avenue - Visuals

  • State Route 82 at Floribunda Avenue Intersection Safety Improvement ProjectPublic Meeting Display Boards, November 13, 2014


  • The November 19, 2013 Public Scoping Meeting provided the public an opportunity to provide input regarding options to be considered for the project.  Two options, which were repeatedly suggested are:  1. Timing Modifications, and 2. Split Phase.  Simulations for each of these options are based on existing traffic volumes and are included below.” Vehicles in the below simulations are color-coded as follows:

    Timing Modifications

    Split Phase

    Timing modifications are an on-going process. Changes are made on an as-needed basis, with consideration to all roadway users. Timing modifications are not considered a long-term solution. Below are simulations showing conditions prior to and after timing modifications.

  • Condition Prior to Timing Modification
  • Condition After Timing Modification

  • The timing was modified to the Oak Grove Avenue signalization to facilitate northbound left-turners at Floribunda Avenue. The modification creates a larger gap between southbound vehicles already on southbound El Camino Real and southbound vehicles coming from Oak Grove Avenue. There is no improvement for southbound left-turners.

    Unlike the current operation of the signalization at Floribunda Avenue where northbound and southbound traffic on El Camino Real proceed at the same time, the split phase option would have northbound and southbound El Camino Real traffic proceed at separate times. When northbound traffic on El Camino Real has a green light, southbound traffic on El Camino Real and traffic on Floribunda Avenue will remain stopped at the intersection. When southbound traffic on El Camino Real has a green light, northbound traffic on El Camino Real and traffic on Floribunda Avenue will remain stopped at the intersection. Significant queues result. Below are simulations showing the split phase effects to Oak Grove Avenue and Floribunda Avenue.
