As outdoor seating has become the norm on Grand Avenue, local artists have used their creativity to brighten up the traffic control that makes the expanded dining possible. Check out the coverage in the Times Advocate here.El Norte Parkway Improvement Project
On August 12, the El Norte Parkway Improvement project was accepted as complete by the City Council.  This Project removed a bottleneck over the Escondido Creek to provide two lanes of traffic in each direction, added bike lanes, and installed a pedestrian signal at the bridge.  Key features of this project include construction of a new bridge, stamped medians with landscaping, reconfigured traffic signals, a pedestrian signal to aide pedestrians and cyclists using the Escondido Creek trail cross El Norte Parkway, and a lighted trailhead sign. A video highlighting the project can be viewed here.
