New Signal at Arrellaga Street


The city is in the midst of installing a traffic light at the De la Vina and Arrellaga intersection — synchronized to the signal a block away at Micheltorena — in answer to the 12 collisions there in 2013. A detour at the 1600 block of De la Vina will route traffic around the work at times, with completion scheduled for mid May. A new left-hand turn lane will be added to westbound Arrellaga, with a corresponding loss of street parking on the eastbound side.
