Rumble of discontent


    Dear Mr. Spinks:

    This is in response to your letter [“Median should be mode,” July 29], in which you expressed concern over the removal of raised medians on Pacific Coast Highway along Zuma Beach.

    Based on the traffic behavior that has been reported during these summer months, we will be re-evaluating our original plan to place rumble strips in this segment. We are considering other options and are currently in the process of gathering field data to enable us to come up with the best design. We are also working with the Sheriff’s Department towards developing the best solutions for this area and ask for your patience in the meantime.

    We appreciate you interest in providing a safer PCH. If you have any questions, please call Melvin Araki at 213.897.4981.
