Laguna Niguel could lower speed limits on 11 roadways

The Laguna Niguel City Council could adopt an ordinance on Sep. 5 to lower speed limits on 11 roadways.

The ordinance was introduced to the council on Tuesday, Aug. 15 after a recommendation from the Traffic Commission, which reviewed the item on July 26. It will be up for adoption at the next council meeting.

Potential roads impacted include:

Aliso Creek Road from Moulton Parkway to La Paz Road could see its speed limit reduced from 45 mph to 40 mph.

Aliso Creek Road from La Paz road to Alicia Parkway could see its speed limit reduced from 50 mph to 45 mph.

Avila Road from Moulton Parkway to La Paz Road could see its speed limit reduced from 40 mph to 35 mph.

Bear Brand Road from Camino del Avion to Gate could see its speed limit reduced from 35 mph to 30 mph.

Camino Capistrano from the north city limit to Paseo de Colinas could see its speed limit reduced from 40 mph to 35 mph.

Camino del Avion from the east city limit to Golden Lantern could see its speed limit reduced from 45 mph to 40 mph.

Camino del Avion from Golden Lantern to Bear Brand Road could see its speed limit reduced from 45 mph to 40 mph.

Chapparosa Park Road from Golden Lantern to the road’s end could see its speed limit reduced from 35 mph to 30 mph.

La Paz Road from the north city limit to Avila Road could see its speed limit reduced from 45 mph to 40 mph.

Ocean Way from Pacific Island Drive to Cannes could see its speed limit reduced from 30 mph to 25 mph.

Old Ranch Road from Golden Lantern to Gate could see its speed limit reduced from 35 mph to 30 mph.

The potential speed limit changes come about four months after the city found 46 street segments needing updated traffic surveys, according to a staff report. Surveys showed 11 of the 46 segments had a need for a speed limit decrease.

If the city approves the new speed limits, radar trailers will be used to warn motorists about the lower speed limits once new signs have been posted.
