Title: Beach Blvd and Warner Ave Intersection Improvement Project
Applicant: City of Huntington Beach
Location: Beach Blvd. and Warner Ave. Intersection
The project is located at the intersection of Beach Boulevard and Warner Avenue, on the north side of Warner Avenue from Beach Boulevard to the alley between A Lane and B Lane, including portions of the adjacent commercial properties to the north at 16990 Beach Boulevard, 8021 Warner Avenue, and 8071 Warner Avenue.
The project involves the construction of a westbound right turn lane on Warner Avenue at the intersection of Beach Boulevard and associated improvements including a new five-foot wide sidewalk along the west side of A Lane for a length of approximately 150 feet. In addition, the project's scope of work includes clearing and grubbing, the construction of asphalt concrete roadway, striping, curb, gutter, sidewalk, landscaping and relocation of existing signage on the adjacent gas station parcel, reconstruction of driveways on the adjacent gas station and liquor store properties, removal of a defunct drainage inlet, relocation of irrigation lines on the auto repair property, and utility and traffic signal adjustment and relocation, including a fire hydrant and one utility pole. Above- and below-ground utilities within the right-of-way and on private property will be protected in-place or relocated during project construction. The proposed project would require right-of-way acquisition from adjacent privately owned commercial properties to the north. The acquisition of right-of-way along Warner Avenue varies in width from nine to 14 feet. Acquisition on the west side of A Lane would be three feet. Overall, the total property acquisition per parcel is proposed as follows:
- 16990 Beach Boulevard; Gas Station (APN 107-011-067): 1,219 square feet
- 8021 Warner Avenue; Liquor Store (APN 107-100-068): 1,874 square feet
- 8071 Warner Avenue; Tire Store (APN 107-100-078): 786 square feet
Variances will be required to deviate from resulting development standards on the adjacent commercial properties that would be non-compliant as a result of the project's right-of-way acquisition. In addition, with Beach Boulevard being a state highway, the project will require review and approval by Caltrans.
A draft Mitigated Negative Declaration was available for public review from April 18, 2013 to May 17, 2013. The Zoning Administrator approved the MND on June 19, 2013. For more information on the project, please contact the Public Works Department at (714) 536-5431.
