The purpose of this Traffic Calming Study was to evaluate existing geometric and traffic conditions, assess traffic calming alternatives and provide recommendations to reduce speeding and cutthrough traffic along the Corridor. The Corridor is approximately 1.3 miles long and includes seven (7) intersections. The data collected for this Traffic Calming Study included 24-hour bi-directional traffic volumes, site investigations, historical studies, and planned improvement projects in the vicinity of the study corridor. Multiple site investigations were conducted to observe current traffic characteristics and to identify existing roadway conditions. Vehicular speeding was observed at three (3) locations, where traffic data was collected, i.e., vehicles were traveling above the speed limit. Based on the results of a detailed analysis of traffic data and existing roadway conditions, potential recommendations were provided in the form of active and passive traffic calming solutions such as narrow lanes, pavement markings and signage improvements, rumble strips, and speed humps. Additional signage and pavement markings modifications may be considered to improve the traffic performance. A combination of one or more traffic calming solutions can be utilized to alleviate the speeding concerns. Neighborhood Association and residents feedback would be needed to develop an acceptable plan for implementing traffic calming solutions. ES-1 April 2015

DATA COLLECTION Data collected for the Corridor included 24-hour bi-directional traffic volumes, site investigations and historical traffic studies in the vicinity of the Corridor. Daily traffic volumes were collected by GRAM Traffic Counting Inc., on Wednesday, January 21, 2015, at the following three (3) locations along the Corridor, as shown on Exhibit 1. April

11 Forest View Drive North of Cedar Park Drive Rocky River Drive Between Rocky Ledge Road and Reveille Road Westlake Drive Between West Spring Drive and Bee Caves Road A summary of existing daily traffic volumes is shown in Table 2. The analysis of the collected traffic data shows that the morning and evening peak hour traffic occurred from 7 AM to 8 AM and from 5 PM to 6 PM, respectively. The analysis of the 85 th Percentile Speed revealed that vehicles are traveling at a higher speed at all three (3) data collection locations, as shown in Table 3. TRAFFIC CALMING SOLUTIONS A city s transportation network is generally comprised of three different street classifications, which includes local, collector and arterial roadways. Local streets are generally lower volume streets (500 to 8,000 vehicles per day) primarily providing access to residential properties. Collector streets have higher traffic volumes (8,000 to 10,000 vpd) and connect local streets to arterial streets. Arterial streets carry the highest volume of traffic (14,000 to 46,000 vpd) and generally connect to highways. Traffic calming measures are typically appropriate on two-lane local or collector streets. All street segments in this Corridor fit within either local or residential collector street functional classification. The study objective was to investigate potential geometric and traffic solutions, which can enhance neighborhood quality of life by improving vehicular mobility and road users safety that fits in the given neighborhood environment. The primary focus is to reduce vehicular speeds and/or the volume of nonlocalized traffic on the subject corridor. Measure of Effectiveness (MOE) The purpose of the analysis, design and implementation of traffic calming solutions is to provide better conditions for neighborhood living such as slower speeds or lower traffic volumes. The positive impact of each traffic calming measure can be based on a subjective ranking scale that rates the reduction of speed, reduction of traffic volume, safety enhancement and projected maintenance for each measure.

Reduced Traffic Volume Traffic calming measures that have a greater impact on reducing the volume of traffic will be given higher priority than measures which have no impact on reducing traffic volumes. Enhanced Safety Calming measures which have the potential to reduce crashes will be given higher priority than measures which would not necessarily reduce crash potential. Projected Maintenance Most traffic calming measures will require some level of maintenance depending on the amount and type of traffic, weather, and the stability of roadway surface. Traffic calming measures which require little to no maintenance will be given higher preference than measures which require frequent maintenance or replacement. There are many potential active or passive traffic calming solutions available, which may be used depending upon street classification, roadway width, connectivity and access, traffic volume and estimated costs. The following four (4) traffic calming solutions were discussed and evaluated based on the MOEs. Speed limit signs and Speed limit pavement markings Narrow Travel Lanes Rumble Strips Speed Humps April

14 Speed limit signs and speed limit pavement markings are traffic control devices used to communicate the safe and reasonable operating speed on a particular roadway. Under Texas state law, all residential streets are 30 mph unless otherwise posted, based on a traffic engineering study. Speed limit signs are typically placed at the primary entrance to a neighborhood or where speed limits change. Speed feedback signs (which display vehicular speed information) can also be used to heighten driver awareness. A speed limit pavement marking provides an additional display of the lawful speed limit on the roadway. These markings are used to supplement speed limit signs, as shown in Figure 1. Advantages Inexpensive Constant reminder to the driver of the regulatory speed limit Catches the attention of motorists Disadvantages May not affect the driving behavior of frequent roadway users Effectiveness decreases on straight and/or wide streets or when faded Excessive signs can cause visual clutter Markings require continuous maintenance Figure 1: Speed Limit Pavement Markings Eligibility Considerations Streets that have a documented speeding problem Streets that have speed limits which differ from 30 mph April

15 Narrow Travel Lanes are created by using pavement markings, raised pavement markers or vertical panels, as shown in Figure 2. These treatments can be applied at pavement edges to create shoulders or parking lanes. They can also be applied inside to create painted medians and to provide buffer for vehicles traveling in the opposite direction. Bike lane installation was not considered feasible due to narrow road width. Advantages Travel lane narrowing may cause motorists to reduce their operating speeds Painted median provides buffer for vehicles traveling in the opposing direction Disadvantages Effectiveness decreases on straight and/or wide streets Excessive signs can cause visual clutter Markings require continuous maintenance Not as effective when markings are faded Level of speed reduction is usually minimal Eligibility Considerations Streets that have a documented speeding problem Streets that have speed limits which differ from 30 mph Figure 2: Narrow Travel Lanes Rumble strips are patterned sections of rough pavement or applications of raised material, which when driven over cause vibration and noise in a vehicle, as shown in Figure 3. This treatment is intended to direct the attention of the motorist back to the roadway. April

16 Advantages May be used to heighten motorists awareness Disadvantages Noisy and may be annoying to nearby residents Require continuous maintenance Eligibility Considerations Streets that have a documented speeding problem Adjacent property owners must agree to installation Figure 3: Rumble Strips Speed humps are asphalt or pre-formed rubber cushions applied to the road surface and are uncomfortable to negotiate at high operating speeds, as shown in Figure 4. This kind of treatment is called active traffic calming solution which requires vertical deflection in the vehicular travel path. Advantages Effective in reducing vehicle speeds Relatively easy for bicyclists and EMS to cross Disadvantages Makes traveling on the roadway uncomfortable for motorists and may increase noise Increases emergency vehicle response time by 8-10 seconds when installed in pairs Requires continuous maintenance April

17 Eligibility Considerations Street must not have more than one lane of travel in each direction Street segment must be approximately ¼ mile long without interruption by a traffic control device or other traffic calming features Street segment must not be within ¼ mile from a Fire Department facility that it significantly interferes with emergency vehicle operations Figure 4: Speed Humps The selected traffic calming solutions evaluation based on MOEs are summarized in Table 4.

18 PRELIMINARY COST ESTIMATE A planning-level cost estimate was developed for each potential traffic calming solution. This preliminary cost estimate is provided as a planning level assessment of project cost for budget purposes. Actual construction cost may vary based on the detailed design and prices at the time of construction. The preliminary cost estimates are summarized in Table 5. Table 5. Summary of Preliminary Cost Estimates Alternative Estimated Cost Speed Limit Signs and Speed Limit Pavement Markings (6 locations) $6K $8K Narrow Travel Lanes (Segments A, B and Reveille Road) $10K $12K Rumble Strips (1 for each Segments A thru F) $12K $15K Speed Humps (Segments A, D and Reveille Road) $30K $40K Speed Feedback Signs (Two locations) $15K $20K POTENTIAL TRAFFIC CALMING IMPROVEMENTS A combination of one or more traffic calming solutions can be utilized to alleviate the speeding concerns. Neighborhood Association and residents feedback would be needed to finalize an acceptable plan for implementing traffic calming solutions along the Corridor. Appropriate traffic calming solutions include: Speed Limit Signs Installation at six (6) locations Speed Limit Pavement Markings Placement at seven (7) locations Narrow Travel Lanes Installation for Segments A, B and Reveille, where road pavement is wider than 22 feet. Given the narrow existing pavement width along the corridor (20 to 26 ), a white pavement marking delineating a 10 to 11 lane width would be appropriate. Vertical Panels could be an aesthetic issue in this corridor, and raised pavement markers would cost more without significantly increasing the effectiveness. All-way Stop installation at Rocky River Rd and Rocky River Cove Intersection Speed Humps Installation for Reveille Road, and Segments A and D Driver Speed Feedback signs may be installed at two (2) locations Additional signage and pavement markings modifications were also identified that may improve the traffic performance, although they do not specifically address traffic calming. The traffic signage and pavement markings modifications include: a. Installation of additional stop bars b. Speed enforcement by local police department April

19 c. Standardizing existing signs The potential traffic improvements are summarized in Table 6 and are also shown in Appendix C Traffic Improvements Plan. Table 6.

Data collection and site investigations were performed to determine existing traffic volumes and patterns, roadway geometrics, speed limits, and lane configurations. April

20 All three (3) locations where traffic data was collected showed evidence of speeding. The information gathered from the data collection and site investigations was used to evaluate existing conditions and to develop potential traffic calming solutions. The comparison of traffic calming solutions and their associated costs were also discussed. Various traffic calming solutions were identified to alleviate the speeding concerns. Neighborhood Association and residents feedback would be needed to finalize an acceptable plan for implementing traffic calming solutions along the Corridor. April
