City Council approve traffic flow solutions for Kelly Lane and a Traffic Signal Warrant Analysis study of the Corridor

Post Date:08/15/2019 8:27 AM
On Tuesday, City Council unanimously directed staff to enact traffic flow and safety solutions on Kelly Lane and authorized the hiring a professional engineering services firm to conduct a full Traffic Signal Warrant Analysis at the Kelly Lane at Vilamoura Street/Falcon Pointe Boulevard intersection.

 

In lieu of stop signs on Kelly Lane at Falcon Pointe Boulevard (east) /Vilamoura Drive, and recognizing current resident concerns at the intersection, City Council authorized any combination of the following traffic control measures:

  • Heighten public education on roadway intersection interim improvements and safety.
  • Install warning signs and use the city flashing marquee signs to alert drivers to intersections
  • Increase traffic enforcement in the area
  • Add advanced warning measures such as rumble strips, pavement markings and signage

This discussion is the latest in a series on the Kelly Lane corridor over the last several years ranging from traffic signal warrant studies and evaluations of the corridor. Roadway improvements on Weiss, Pflugerville Parkway and Rowe Lane have impacted travel patterns on Kelly Lane and resulted in a shift in traffic recommendations over the years. The specific purpose of the new study is to determine traffic signals and overall roadway needs based on the condition of the current corridor.

Kelly Lane Phase 2 design, from Falcon Pointe (west) to just east of the Vilamoura intersection is anticipated to be underway in Fall 2019.  A corridor study and transportation plan is underway and staff will update City Council on the status in September. The public is invited to the transportation open house on September 17 at Kelly Lane Middle School from 5-8 p.m. on the Transportation Master Plan including the Kelly Lane and FM 685 corridor.

City staff will return to City Council with an update on this project at the September 10 City Council meeting.
