On Tuesday, many residents near the area of Camino Del Rio and Camino De Los Mares gathered at the City Council Chambers to discuss potential heavy traffic mitigations, as the completion of the Avenida La Pata extension looms. City officials and engineers moderated the discussion and took notes of what people wanted to see, including the possibility of adding traffic signals or roundabouts in the area.
This was the first of a series of meetings to address issues residents may have in the future. OCTA studies estimate the traffic on Del Rio will increase significantly once the extension is complete.
The next meeting is scheduled for early November, but a specific date has not yet been determined.
