The Old Enfield traffic calming project was approved through a process predating the LATM program and process. Given neighborhood stakeholder feedback, staff have finalized the project plans and completed the construction for the following areas:
Intersection of Niles Road and Hartford Road: The traffic circle has been removed and rubber speed cushions have been installed north and south of the intersection.
Median on West Lynn Street: The median has been removed and the previous rubber speed cushion configuration has been restored.
Intersection of Watchhill Road and Hartford Road: Rubber speed cushions have been installed north and south of the intersection.
Staff have finalized project plans for the following locations, with construction anticipated in early 2019, pending no weather delays or unforeseen circumstances.
Curb extensions at Rainbow Bend: The scope of this work includes modification of the existing curb and plans for landscaping.
Intersection of Niles Road/Windsor Road and West Lynn Street: The scope of this work includes installation of stamped concrete in lieu of existing landscaping.
Austin Transportation will install an all-way stop at the intersection of Niles Road and Windsor Road. The all-way stop is not a traffic calming project but was an engineering determination based on an engineering traffic study. The all-way stop control will clarify which drivers have the right of way when approaching the intersection and complement the previously installed traffic island. Additional treatments to improve the pedestrian experience that are part of the Old Enfield traffic calming project will be coordinated with the installation of the all-way stop.
Schedule for other ongoing work, including water line and paving on Hartford, will be updated as those projects progress. The work is weather-dependent, and may require changes to the schedule for weather events or other unscheduled occurrences.
