Williams Trace Blvd Reconstruction
Williams Trace Blvd
From SH6 to Lexington Blvd
The project is to address issues with capacity deficiency and improve mobility. Additional left turn lanes are needed to improve the queuing for turning movements at several intersections; Edgewater NB/SB, Highland Dr. NB/SB, Lexington Blvd NB/SB.
Reconstruct the existing 4-lane divided boulevard roadway including curb and gutter. Construct additional lanes near SH 6 and Lexington. Construct 2200 linear feet of left turn lanes at various locations. Replace inlets and manholes.
Improved mobility; Increased capacity for thru movements and left turn lanes; and Improved the drainage system.

The methodology to calculate the BCA for Safety, Emissions and Delay was based on the Templates provided by H-GAC.
The input data was obtained by the H-GAC travel demand model - using yearly growth rate correction when necessary (the detailed explanation can be found in the Word file, named "BCA Methodology Justification").
Based on the performance improvement resulted from similar projects (additional left-turn lane to better direct traffic and make signal timing allocation more efficient), we considered a conservative 3 mph improvement as the expected "average speed after improvement".
In addition, the information related to 2018 traffic volume was obtained using the data collected by magnetometers installed in some signalized intersections along the roadway of interest. In order to obtain the typical weekday ADT we averaged the 24h volume reports from Oct 22-26 (Monday through Friday) for each location. We then chose to use the highest Weekday Average ADT since this location would represent the heaviest segment within the roadway.
The results show Benefits of $10,550,000 (Delay); $2,697 (Emissions); and $3,133,000 (Safety), in 2018 dollars; totalling $13,3682,697.
The Cost is represented by the amount of federal funds requested; $5,425,920.
Which results in a Benefit/Cost ratio of 2.52 - meeting the requirement for BCA > 1.0

This project will provide added capacity to ped/bike, replacing the existing 4 ft sidewalk with a
10ft sidepath. This enhancement also improves the connectivity of the ped/bike network.
