The main driver of the project are traffic delay, crashes, and increasing need of accessibility. This study section is a 3.8-mile, east-west, and 4-5 lanes minor arterial. The posted speed limit is 35 mph up to Radio Lane and 45 mph going east to FM 762. The current volume is high especially during PM peak hours at FM 762 (2,993). The existing LOS of this study section is currently D/C. Driveway density for this study section from Barmore Rd to Radio Ln is the highest (69.6/mi) among three study sections. Crashes are overall significantly higher than statewide average, especially the segment from Lamar to FM 762.
New traffic signal, upgrade signal equipment, optimize traffic signal timing, extension of left/right turn lane, add raised island to delineate roadway, realign roadway, turn lane closure, add new left/right turn lane, construct signalized intersection with channelization, construct new intersection, raised median with left turn lane, pavement striping, and other minor driveway modifications.
The study purpose is to reduce crash rates, reduce motorist delay, enhance land use, and preserve property values along the corridor. Sufficient baseline information are collected and analyzed to provide opportunities along the corridor for better connectivity, accessibility, circulation, and friendliness for pedestrians and cyclists. Enhanced aesthetics is also one of the goals aiming at stimulating economic vitality.

While the corridor is not a designated bike corridor, field observation demonstrates the need to accommodate pedestrians and bicyclist. Most of the existing sidewalks do not meet current ADA standards and what sidewalks exists are in poor condition. The project seeks to create a high comfort and safe multimodal environment by increasing design standards, implementing gap filler sidewalks, and repairing sidewalks in poor conditions. In addition, implementation of access management will create a safer environment for pedestrians as a whole.
