Pacific Coast Highway Bike Route Improvement Project

PCH bike route ribbon cutting

Project Overview

The Pacific Coast Highway Bike Route Improvements Project made improvements to the existing bike route along Pacific Coast Highway (PCH), and promoted safety for all modes of travel. The project limits are from the intersection of Busch Dr to the western city limits, a distance of approximately seven miles. The project included striping and signage upgrades throughout the entire seven miles, as well as shoulder and intersection improvements at the following locations:

  • Zuma Beach Bike Lane - A six-foot wide, Class II Bike Lane was installed on the ocean side of the highway. The Bike Lane runs parallel to the highway and is adjacent to the shoulder parking area for approximately two miles. The City celebrated the completion of the bike lane with a ribbon cutting ceremony on April 29, 2015.
  • PCH & Morning View Dr Intersection- A dedicated right turn lane onto Morning View Dr. with an adjacent four-foot bike lane were installed, and the existing bus stop was relocated. This work was completed in August 2014.
  • PCH and Trancas Canyon Road Intersection - In September 2014, a raised concrete median was installed.

The project was accepted as complete by the City Council on August 10, 2015.

Project Funding

The project is funded primarily by Metro and a grant from the Caltrans Highway Safety Improvement Program, with a contribution from the City's General Fund.
