Broad Street (East) at James Road Intersection Improvements

DESCRIPTION AND BENEFITS:

 


The intersection of East Broad Street and James Road suffers from elevated crash rates due to the high number of left and right turns from James Road and conflicts with access to business driveways. The purpose of this project is to reduce crashes, improve traffic flow efficiency, and improve pedestrian access and safety at this location.

 

Proposed Improvements

 

 • Construct dual southbound left-run lanes and provide protected-only southbound left-turn phasing

 

 • Construct exclusive right-turn lanes on northbound and southbound intersection approaches

 

 • Reconstruct existing signal and install signal back plates

 

 • Modify signal timings to reduce backups and stops

 

 • Install advanced street name signs along the southbound approach

 

 • Install medians along James Road
