It was my understanding that the lights at Stonebriar, Warren and Lebanon were supposed to be installed when Legacy was completed to Warren. It has been 4 months and they haven't even started working on them yet.

What is the deal?

Go Buffs,

The original estimate for the completion of the signal at Lebanon and Legacy was August 2004. This has now been moved to the September/October 2004 timeframe.

We would have liked to have had the signals at Stonebriar and Warren already under construction, but the design plans were delayed. It got to a point where it then made more economic sense to combine those signals with the Legacy and Lebanon signal. The plans will be ready for bid in April 2004.

what is the current status of a signal light at Legacy/Lebanon?
In addition, does the signal light project at Legacy/Lebanon also include installing street lights along Legacy on the medians from Warren Pkwy north to Lebanon, since the lights from Stonebriar to Warren Pkwy were reccently completed?

Traffic light Stonebriar and Legacy
Any update on construction?
Does construction include any turn lanes
How sophisticated will the timing be
What will be the maximum delay for someone exiting Stonebriar?
How will backup at Stonebriar gate effect lights?

Construction of the traffic signal has started at this location. Per the contract, it must be completed before late January 2005.

There will not be any turn lanes added with the addition of the signal. There will be some striping modifications on Stonebriar itself to create left-turn only lanes. There will also be some median nose modifications that will improve the area for pedestrian use.

I don't have a good estimate yet for the delay on Stonebriar. If making a right-turn onto Legacy, you will be permitted to make a right-turn on red. Most of the delay will be incurred by left-turning vehicles and through vehicles. In all likelihood, you could wait for up to 75 to 100 seconds at most during the peak periods if you arrive to the light on Stonebriar just after it turns red. Most of the rest of the day, it will probably be in the 20 to 50 second range. Since we do not have timing plans developed yet, that is the best estimate I can give you.

In order to address the gated area, we will be observing our signal sequences closely once the light is operational. We also may be adding some signage warning left-turn drivers to watch the gate area to make sure it is clear before proceeding on a green. The northbound left-turn lane will receive a protected leading left-turn arrow and a protected lagging left-turn arrow.

If you have further questions regarding the operation of this signal, please contact me at 972-335-5580 x196.
