SR_133.png State Route 133 Safety Project


The California Department of Transportation (Caltrans) is proposing to reduce collisions at the intersection of Laguna Canyon Road (SR-133) and El Toro Road by extending the second travel lane northbound from El Toro Road by 600 feet, extending the acceleration lane southbound by 900 feet and reassigning the exclusive right-turn lane to an optional right/left turn lane on westbound El Toro Road in the city of Laguna Beach, Orange County.
The information in the Initial Study (IS) is intended to provide project information such as alternatives being considered, how the environment could be affected and how any impacts will be avoided, minimized, and/or mitigated.

PA&ED – Completed
Design – October 2018 to April 2020
Construction – February 2021 to April 2023
