A drive down Pacific Coast Highway shows physical signs of change coming to Dana Point’s downtown.

As construction crews replace sidewalks, add medians and bus pullouts and upgrade gutters and traffic signals, the one-way PCH inches toward becoming a two-way roadway. Overall improvements are anticipated to last through October. It’s all part of the city’s Town Center Lantern District improvements slated to make Dana Point more pedestrian-friendly and to encourage growth in the downtown area.

Brad Fowler, the city’s director of public works, will be the Dana Point Civic Association’s guest at the community forum-style coffee chat Friday, March 21. Fowler will give a construction update and answer questions.

The Civic Association hosts Coffee Chat on the third Friday of each month. Chats begin at 8:30 a.m. at Coffee Importers, 34531 Golden Lantern at the Dana Point Harbor. Guest speakers and discussion topics vary to include issues and items of interest to Dana Point residents.

The event is always free, open to the public and complimentary coffee is served.
