The Town's consultant, EDSA, developed three roadway design options for the El Mar Drive Streetscape Project.
Three Design Choices
Option 1 calls for converting the road into one lane in each direction. The median would expand from 20 to 22 feet in some areas. In other places, it would be reduced to 16-feet for designated pull off parking spots for service and delivery trucks. This concept includes a 12-foot wide driving lane, 9-foot sidewalk and 6-foot clear zone.
Option 2 also calls for converting the road into one lane in each direction and reducing the median from 20 to 18 feet. This option includes a 10-foot driving lane, 10-foot clear zone and 9-foot-wide sidewalk.
Option 3 calls for maintaining two lanes in each direction while reducing the median to 8 feet. This option includes two 10-foot driving lanes (north and southbound), 8-foot sidewalks and a 6-foot clear zone.
