La Jolla’s Traffic & Transportation Board members want to hear from the public Thursday about plans to improve safety, traffic flow and views in what’s been dubbed the “Torrey Pines Corridor.”

The discusssion is the second recent session where the proposed project, that covers the area between La Jolla Shores Boulevard and Prospect Street, has been a focal point. The T&T board begins its meeting at 5 p.m., which includes an item on a proposed Bird Rock farmers market, but has scheduled the Torrey Pines topic to start at 6 p.m.

The session is a followup to an informational forum on hosted by Councilwoman Sherri Lightner’s office in January. At that point, residents and others asked questions of the presenters but suggestions weren’t taken into consideration.

At Thursday’s meeting, set to wrap up around 7:30 p.m., the public will have an opportunity ask additional questions of city staff and provide their input on project priorities and objectives.

The traffic board will consider all ideas and will hold an additional meeting if necessary to give everyone a chance to be heard, Chairman Todd Lesser has said.

The Torrey Pines Corridor Project, which has been several years in the planning stage, calls traffic calming, slope stabilization, pedestrian and bicycle safety and landscaping improvements to the heavily traveled stretch of Torrey Pines Road between La Jolla Shores Drive and Prospect Place.

In 2010, a $500,000 federal stimulus grant to fund the design phase of the corridor project was secured.
