Cross Link Road Traffic Calming Project

Enhancing the appearance and slowing down motor-vehicle traffic

This project includes the installation of traffic calming devices along Cross Link Road from Dandridge Drive to Garner Road, sidewalk construction on the southeast side, and adds bike and transit improvements to the street.

We are installing traffic calming features along the roadway such as bump outs and medians, and there will be a small roundabout installed at Dandridge Drive.

To improve pedestrian safety, we will install additional sidewalk along the south side of Cross Link Road, and there will also be enhancements made to transit stops along the roadway.

Design

Updated July 8,

We are installing a 5-foot wide sidewalk on the east side of the street from Garner Road to Dandridge Drive. There will be a 6-foot wide section of sidewalk south of the Brumlow Lane intersection. We will also be doing some pavement resurfacing, installing some medians, completing storm drain utility work, and installing a roundabout near Danridge Drive.

 

Next Steps

 

We are scheduled to to begin construction during the summer of 2020.

Construction Activity

Contractor is working on:

  • Completing the roundabout 
  • Fine grading and planting
  • Paving operations
  • Final striping 
  • Installing signage along corridor

A new traffic pattern is now in place at the intersection of Dandridge Drive. During construction of the new roundabout there will be no left turn into or out of Dandridge Drive. Once the roundabout is complete traffic will utilize the roundabout and exit at the desired street.

The roundabout is one of the traffic calming features we are installing to the corridor to help reduce speed. Roundabouts reduce vehicle speed using geometry rather than traffic signals, causing the traffic to flow at a slow but steady pace. Roundabouts are designed for slow operating speeds between 15 and 25 mph.
