This project was initiated in response to resident and user concern of traffic safety and operations of this intersection. The motor vehicle level of service of this signalized intersection is currently D which can be described as approaching unstable flow of traffic and occasionally waiting through more than one signal cycle before proceeding.
Proposed improvements for this intersection aim to improve pedestrian safety-mainly crossing west leg of East Charleston Road with two conflicting southbound right-turn lanes on San Antonio Road. This project would also address intersection operations and poor motor vehicle level of service.
City Staff conducted four community meetings in 2018 and 2019 and presented four concept ideas. Based on the feedback received at these meetings, staff further evaluated concept idea D to develop a recommendation for Planning and Transportation Commission and City Council approval. City Council reviewed and approved the preferred alternative concept plan at its meeting on February 10, 2020. Staff is currently working to complete final design plans, environmental analysis, specifications and estimates for construction.
The City is currently in the process of completing final design plans and construction documents.
