MALIBU, Calif. (AP) - Changes are coming to the Pacific Coast Highway after they Malibu City Council unanimously approved 150 recommendations proposed in a three year traffic safety study.

KTLA-TV reports (https://bit.ly/1Cqc12N ) that at their meeting Monday night, the council accepted all recommendations, ranging from raised medians and widened shoulder areas to modernized traffic signals to make it safer for both pedestrians and drivers at popular intersections near the beach.

The study is in an effort to curb traffic fatalities. There have been four fatalities in the past five months along Malibu’s stretch of the rad, most recently 47-year-old Dewayne Coleman, better known as rapper MC Supreme.

The improvements would be primarily funded through state and federal grants. Officials estimate 80 percent of the work could be completed in the next five years.
