Moraga Way & Canyon Road / Camino Pablo Project

Project Description

Moraga Way

The Town of Moraga is improving several intersections and corridors within and adjacent to the Moraga Center Planned Development Area. The first project improves Moraga Way between Moraga Road and Ivy Drive, completing the bicycle and pedestrian network along the corridor. This is an extension of a project completed by the City of Orinda in 2014. In general, the project re-surfaces Moraga Way to provide an even surface for bicyclists while re-striping the roadway with buffered Class II bicycle lanes.

The project adds sidewalks and pedestrian pathways as well as replaces curb ramps and driveways providing an accessible path of travel linking Miramonte High School, residential land uses, County Connection transit stops, and the Moraga Center along Moraga Way. 

Camino Pablo & Canyon Road

The second project improves the intersection of Camino Pablo and Canyon Road, which is a key route for students walking to Joaquin Moraga Intermediate School. 

The project proposes to reduce the through travel lanes from two to one in each direction and assign the remaining area to bulb-outs while adding a pedestrian refuge reducing the crossing distance and narrowing the roadway to calm traffic. Additional improvements proposed at the intersection include rectangular rapid flash beacons, improved intersection lighting, as well as a speed feedback sign in the northbound direction to advise drivers of their speed as they enter the Town’s limits.

Green Street Elements

Finally, the project provides green street elements within the bulb-outs meeting the Municipal Regional Permit 2.0 requirements.

Moraga Way Pavement Repairs

Ghilotti Construction Company is currently working on finishing the Moraga Way and Canyon Road/Camino Pablo Improvement project. The contractor was delayed in finishing this project, as the crosswalk safety beacons and solar powered street lights are custom ordered items with very long manufacturing and delivery time. These items are now being installed.

Additionally, the contractor is tentatively scheduled to perform additional pavement overlay work along the north bound lanes of Moraga Way on March 13, 2020.
