San Antonio/East Charleston Intersection Improvements

San Antonio Road/East Charleston Road Intersection Improvements

This project was initiated in response to residents 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.  During field observations it was noted that vehicles in the second right-turn lane do not always yield to pedestrians. This project would also address intersection operations and poor motor vehicle level of service.

City Staff has conducted two community meetings so far and presented four concept ideas. Based on the feedback received at these meetings, staff is further evaluating concept ideas C and D to develop a recommendation for City Council approval. Updated traffic data collection and analysis are also scheduled for Fall 2018.
