Question: 1. When is there going to be a light installed to control traffic? The current situation is quite a mess with a 4 way stop that is a abnomral crossing.
2. What is the Gas station going in front of the Albertsons?

Will a stop light have to wait until the commercial development at all corners of Lebanon and Legacy are fully completed? If so, why?
Is the future gas station on the southeast corner part of and controlled by Albertsons?
When will street lights be installed from Warren Parkway up to Lebanon?

Thank you for the questions.
A signal warrant study was conducted at this location in February of 2002. At that time, a traffic signal was not warranted. We are expecting to conduct another study within the next 1 to 2 months.
There are several different criteria used to warrant a traffic signal. Most of the criteria are based on traffic volumes. These criteria are found in the Texas Manual of Uniform Traffic Control Devices.
This intersection should be completed in the next six to nine months depending on the weather. The remaining portions of this intersection are being constructed with the Albertsons center. The completion of the remaining portions of the intersection will go a long way to improving traffic flow conditions at this intersection during the peak hours.
The gas station for this development is an Albertsonsí gas station.
The recent bond that was approved by the voters will have money that is used to install arterial street lighting. It has not been determined how much money will be available for street lighting in this first bond sale. Before these monies are spent, the arterials that need lighting will be ranked to determine where the money will spent first. This ranking has not yet occurred. Therefore, we do not have a definite schedule on when the lighting will be installed along this section of roadway.
