Main Street Bollards
The El Segundo Farmer’s Market is held every Thursday on Main Street between Holly and Grand Avenues from 3:00pm to 7:00pm. At 1:00pm, Recreation & Parks Department staff begin the process of closing Main Street to traffic, adjusting the traffic signals to flashing red, and allow vendors to set up their booths. The current method being used by City staff to block oncoming traffic to the Farmer’s Market area consists of setting up wooden barricades and parking City vehicles at Main Street’s intersections between Grand and Holly Avenues.
The Capital Improvement Program identified the Main Street Bollard Project as one of the top priority projects to be completed this fiscal year. The Project includes the following improvements, per the plans and specifications:
- Installation of concrete foundations for the bollard embedment sleeves with locks
- Installation of 6-inch diameter removable bollards
The removable bollards will be installed curb-to-curb on Main Street just north of Fire Station #1’s driveway and just south of the southerly crosswalk at Holly Avenue, thus protecting any patrons attending the Farmer’s Market. Furthermore, the proposed locations for the newly removable bollards will not conflict with an emergency vehicle entering or exiting the Fire Station during Farmer’s Market hours.
