Nobscot Intersection Improvements: Evaluations were performed on the geometric feasibility and operational benefits of improving the existing signal at the study intersection of Edgell Road, Edmands Road and Water Street. Based on the evaluation, the proposed intersection geometry will consist of a shared through / right-turn lane and a left-turn storage pocket on each approach. This new signal would include an exclusive pedestrian phase. Along with the intersection improvements, repairs will be made to the existing culvert, north of the intersection.
Based on the proposed geometric changes and results of the capacity analysis, the following benefits and impacts were identified:
Sidewalks would be brought into ADA Compliance. New, beautified intersection will include brick accent strips, age appropriate street lighting and ornamental traffic signals.
This project is currently at 90% design with potential repairs to the culvert in 2019 and the reconstruction of the intersection in 2020.
