The San Luis Obispo County Public Works Department will install new flashing pedestrian crossing lights, also known as beacon systems, at the crosswalks in Avila Beach, Cayucos and Nipomo.

Work is scheduled to start on December 1, 2021 and end in April 2022 depending on weather conditions.

The following locations have been identified and improvements have been prioritized to increase the safety of the traveling public and pedestrians:

Avila Beach – Ontario Road at Bob Jones Bike Path Crossing

  • Features hazard warning lights and ceiling flashing light activated by new pedestrian pushbuttons.

Cayucos – North Ocean Avenue at the intersection of Cayucos Drive and D Street

  • Includes new concrete bulbs with curb ramps.

Nipomo – Tefft Street to Dana Elementary Mid-Block Crosswalk

  • Uses the existing border ramps and central island.

For the safety of the public and workers, temporary traffic control measures, including closed shoulders, lane changes and controlled one-way traffic with signage, may be required between 8 a.m. and 5 p.m., Monday through Friday. Motorists are advised to adjust their travel plans and consider alternative routes. Please refer to the attached maps for project locations.

Souza Construction of San Luis Obispo, CA won the contract for $ 281,087 to perform the work. The project is funded by the Federal Highway Administration’s Road Safety Improvement Program and the County Road Fund.
