Traffic Sign New at 1810 Simond Ave

4 way stop should be created at intersection of Aldrich & Simond. Currently parked cars on street block vision of oncoming traffic, making turning left or right unsafe.
CLOSED Study Requested - Close SR. Sent the following email to requester:; """; Hello,; I work in the Austin Transportation and Public Works Department (TPW) and have reviewed your Austin 311 service request regarding the intersection of Aldrich St and Simond Ave; TPW installs all-way stop treatments to clarify who has the right to proceed through the intersection. When studying an intersection for these treatments, TPW follows criteria defined by the Texas Manual on Uniform Traffic Control Devices (TMUTCD) using data such as traffic volumes and reported collision history. All-way stops are typically installed when there is a similar amount of traffic driving on both streets, and when a minimum amount of traffic passes through the intersection, or in some cases if 5 or more collisions occur within a single year that could have been corrected by all-way stop controls. The TMUTCD specifies that all-way stop controls should not be installed for traffic calming/speed management as they may cause additional safety concerns; Drivers may make a two-step maneuver by stopping behind the stop sign and stop line to allow pedestrians approaching or within the crosswalk to pass, then drivers may inch forward for additional visibility without entering the travel lane if needed; TPW is planning to collect volume data along Aldrich St at the intersections with Simond Ave, Garcia St, and Robert Browning St for the purpose of evaluating the potential for all-way stop installations. This data will be collected when construction in the area allows accurate data collection. A review of existing collision data showed that it would not meet collision-based warrants, however we will evaluate the intersection further upon volume data collection; Thank you,; """. - 6 months ago #23-00433563

CLOSED Study Requested - Close SR. Sent the following email to requester:; """; Hello,; Thank you for contacting the City of Austin Transportation and Public Works Department (TPW) via 311. I work in the Transportation Engineering Division and have reviewed your request regarding concerns of vehicle speeds on Vaughan St and your request for additional stop signs; TPW installs all-way stop treatments to clarify who has the right to proceed through the intersection. When studying an intersection for these treatments, TPW follows criteria defined by the Texas Manual on Uniform Traffic Control Devices (TMUTCD) using data such as traffic volumes and reported collision history. All-way stops are typically installed when there is a similar amount of traffic driving on both streets, and when a minimum amount of traffic passes through the intersection, or in some cases if 5 or more collisions occur within a single year that could have been corrected by all-way stop controls. The TMUTCD specifies that all-way stop controls should not be installed for traffic calming/speed management as they may cause additional safety concerns. Collision history on Vaughan St does not show a pattern of crashes that would be remedied by all-way stop installations, however TPW has collected data on Vaughan St at the intersections with Simond Ave and with Robert Browning St and plans to collect data at the intersection with Sorin St for further all-way stop considerations; While stop signs are not used for speed mitigation, our department understands and shares your concerns about speeding. TPW manages the Speed Management Program to address speeding concerns and has created a process to evaluate and prioritize streets for speed mitigation treatments on Level 1 and Level 2 streets, similar to residential local and collector streets. To meet this goal, TPW has created an evaluation procedure to proactively prioritize streets for speed mitigation treatments in a data driven approach outlined here (see "Traffic Calming Methodology" tab). This new approach includes a balanced consideration of crash history, the built street environment, adjacent land uses (such as schools and parks), and speed profile. The Speed Management Program utilizes a variety of traffic calming tools to slow vehicles on Austin's Level 1 and 2 streets that have been selected by the Speed Management Program for traffic calming and TPW developed a Traffic Calming Toolkit, a toolbox of speed mitigation strategies and treatments that may be applied in isolation or in combination with other treatments to achieve speed reduction; Vaughan St is classified as a level 1 local street and TPW accepted a request for a speed study on Vaughan St in October 2023. Vaughan St will be ranked in the Speed Management Program rankings upon completion of the speed study. To see the current rankings for prioritization of streets as of June 30th, 2023 you may visit TrafficCalming_6.2023_Rankings_FINAL.pdf (austintexas.gov); Thank you,; """. - 6 months ago #23-00433309

Traffic Sign New at Vaughan St & Simond Ave

CLOSED Study Requested - Close SR. Data was collected at the intersection of Simond Ave and Vaughan St for consideration of all-way stop installation. The intersection volumes and collision history solely do not meet warrants for an all-way stop however the intersection is continuing to be studied for alternative warrants. All-way stops are not installed for the purpose of speed management as they are only for the purpose of communicating the right-of-way to drivers at an intersection. Vaughan St was placed on the 22B speed study request list for round 23B (second collection period of 2023) of the Speed Management Program. Speed data will be collected on Vaughan St and the street will be ranked in the city-wide prioritization for Speed Management Projects. - 6 months ago #23-00424604
