Now that the construction is done on Hillcrest, When will the speed limit be raised to 40 or 45 miles per hour?

Ken,

I anticipate speed limit changes to occur along various sections of Hillcrest within the next four to six weeks.

Thanks

Joe,

We have completed studies along two sections of Hillcrest so far. We have three more sections to complete before any changes may be made. I anticipate having the remaining areas completed by end of next week.

Brian,
On August 18th you stated you anticipated the speed limit signs would change within 4 - 6 weeks; so how long will it take after the study is completed next week to change the signs?

Mike,

First the results will have to indicate that changes are necessary.

If we recommended changes, the City Council will be notified of the new speed limits before the signs are changed. I expect this to be brought before the Council at either their November 4th or 18th meeting. Once that is done, it is usually a matter of a couple of days before the signs are changed.

Thanks

What caused the 2 month delay from your original post on August 18th?

Mike,

We have had other higher priority projects such as our bond program and school safety that needed to be completed first.

Thanks

Can you please have the traffic light controls re-tuned at Hillcrest and Lebanon? They have not worked correctly since construction ended. No matter the time of day or night, all lanes get a green light including left turn lanes.

Brian,

When we receive a report of timing problems with traffic lights, the specific time of day and day of week when the problem occurs is extremely important. Traffic lights typically have varied timing plans throughout the day and this information assists us in identifying the cause of the problem.

Please contact me directly and I would be happy to discuss this intersection with you. Thank you for your assistance.

Sincerely,

Kimberly Dalton, EIT

Are there any plans to finish planting trees in the median north of Rolator? The South portion of Hillcrest has had sprinklers and trees planted and it would be nice to continue it North to Main Street.

Thank you for your inquiry. Actually, irrigation has only been installed on Hillcrest Road from Hwy 121 to Lebanon. The medians from Lebanon north to College were scheduled to have irrigation installed this past fiscal year, but road construction delayed the project. That portion will be done later this fiscal year. No decision has been made regarding which additional medians will be developed this fiscal year, but I am sure the stretch of medians on Hillcrest from College to Main (Hwy 3537) will receive consideration. If you have additional questions, please contact me at 972-335-5517.

What was the final outcome of the traffic study regarding the speed limit?

Thanks

Joe,

This topic was an agenda item at last evening's Council meeting. The staff recommendation for speed limits along Hillcrest was as follows:

Main to Rolater - 35mph
Rolater to Warren - 40mph
Warren to SH 121 - 45mph

We will be checking our inventory of signs today. If everything needed is in stock, the change will be made within the next two weeks. If some signs need to be ordered, then the change will take about four to six weeks to complete.

Thanks
