Traffic Commission on Jan 3rd at 6:00 p.m to Discuss Roundabout in Shadowridge

0

The City is proposing to replace the existing all-way stop control at the intersection of Shadowridge Drive & Live Oak Road with a roundabout.

The proposal also includes reducing the number of lanes approaching the intersection from four to two

. The roundabout is expected to result in the following benefits:

– The traffic on Shadowridge Drive does not have to come to a complete stop, but will substantially slow down going through the intersection.

– No need for enforcement of rolling through the existing Stop sign.

– The reduction of the number of lanes will make it easier for pedestrians to cross

– The pedestrian is not trying to judge if four lanes of traffic will come to a complete stop before they cross. Instead, they will find a gap in slow moving two lanes of traffic.

– More aesthetically pleasing than the Stop signs.

The proposal will be presented at the City as follows:
