IMPERIAL — Traffic along Imperial Avenue here may soon come under scrutiny as the Imperial City Council reviews a proposal at its meeting Wednesday for a traffic study on Imperial Avenue.
San Diego-based Darnell & Associates, Inc. has proposed a four month study that would investigate congestion and speeding along Imperial Avenue at the intersections of 12th, 14th and 15th streets.
A fee proposal for the study promises to not exceed a total of $2,620.
The council will also hold a first reading of an ordinance regarding the formation of a traffic commission.
At a previous meeting, interim City Manager Lyle Alberg suggested that a traffic commission be incorporated to address the city's traffic needs.
The five-member commission would hold public hearings and make recommendations for action by the City Council.
Also on the agenda will be a review of the office of public works/planning director.
Alberg has proposed a reduction of duties for the position as he felt the current one "too inclusive of too many duties."
