the likelydecline atHawthorne/Valmonte.
4. From report:
Using the HCMmethodology to determinelevels of service for thestudied intersectionsrevealed
similar results in LOS. Intersection delaysincreased with each scenario and the Crenshaw
Boulevard/PacificCoastHighway intersection furtherdeteriorated in LOSduring both peakhours
of traffic.Also,the intersection of Rolling Hills Road/Crenshaw Boulevard decreasedin LOSto “E”
during the A.M.peakhourundercumulativedevelopmentconditions.

7. PerFig 17, 15% of projecttrafficwill goSouthonHawthone pastRollingHillsRoad.Where will
that trafficbe goingand whatbasisfor determiningthatallocationwasused?
8. The ‘cumulative impact’portioniswhollyinadequate becauseitignoresprojectsinRedondo
and Lomita(andothercities) thatimpact throughtrafficon PCH. Twosuch projectsare the
condosat PCH/ProspectandPCH/PV Drive.
Evenso, buttheir– inadequate –measure of cumulativeimpact,PCH/Hawthorne declinesto
LOS D, Hawthorne/244th
declinestoLOSD. Note that the claimis that cum delay improvesat
PCH/VistaMontanafrom37.1 pmpeakhour to 37.2 in thisscenario.
