Webinar: FM 1960 Access Management Study – Driven By “Planning for Operations”
April 13 @ 12:00 PM - 1:00 PM CDT
This presentation focusses on the operational and safety needs of FM 1960 from East Gatewick to BF 1960A (the corridor) and the approach to identify short-, medium-, and long-range improvements to reduce crashes, alleviate traffic congestion, improve traffic flow, enhance multi-modal access, and improve access for existing and future developments. Proposed improvements are divided into short-range (0 to 5 years), medium-range (5 to 10 years), and long-range (10+years) categories to expedite the implementation of low-cost and high-impact short-range improvements and maximize project benefits over time. Improvement strategies also focus on enhancing safety and connectivity for pedestrians and bicyclists along segments of the corridor that warrant such consideration. The goal of this presentation is to focus on effectiveness of operational improvements and technology-based improvements to unlock and maximize operational and safety efficiency of existing assets.
