Transit, Streets, and Sidewalks

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.

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.

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

The project is complete! 

Crews finished installing the landscaping along the corridor in mid- July, and transit shelters were installed at Dandridge Drive in August. 

There is a new roundabout at Dandridge Drive. The roundabout is one of the traffic calming features we installed to help reduce speed along the road.

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. 

Tips for Driving in a Roundabout

  • Slow down. Obey traffic signs;
  • Yield to pedestrians and bicyclists as you approach the roundabout;
  • Yield to traffic on your left already in the roundabout;
  • When there is a gap in the traffic enter to your right;
  • Keep your speed low within the roundabout;
  • As you approach your exit, turn on your right turn signal; and,
  • Yield to pedestrians and bicycles as you exit.
