KTUA’s project responsibilities included alternatives development, analysis and ranking, multi-jurisdictional coordination, oversight of bicycle and pedestrian count collection and analysis, and the development of context sensitive wayfindng and directional signage. Several districts exist in San Clemente but are separated by highways, freeways, rivers and rail lines. Although some physical connections exist, they are not highlighted or very clear. The wayfinding program included locations of key decision points for arriving at major destinations. The wayfinding included a hierarchy of district signs, gateways and monuments that help in knowing where you are going and when you actually get there. The efforts included alternative designs and specifications for the signage.
KTUA prepared a connectivity plan for three distinct areas of Dana Point: Doheny Village, Doheny State Beach and Dana Point Harbor, all of which are physically separated by substantial non-motorized mobility impediments such as Pacific Coast Highway, freeway ramps, rail lines and San Juan Creek. The project included the development of potential roadway alignment alternatives, as well as intersection and connectivity improvements for cyclists, pedestrian and drivers. This plan addressed conditions that had been in existence for decades and the proposed solutions were supported by multiple entities, including Caltrans and California State Parks. This was a Southern California Association of Governments (SCAG) Compass Blueprint project, a competitive grant program designed to encourage cities to address significant mobility issues.
