Improved Walking, Biking and Driving
Based on community input received during the May 17, 2021 informational meeting, City staff have modified aspects of the design presented in the schematic below for the intersection of Summerfield Road and Hoen Avenue.
1. Increase lane widths for the dual left turn lanes moving from eastbound Hoen Avenue to northbound Summerfield Road, to improve driver comfort levels when making this movement.
2. Reduce southbound Summerfield Road to a single lane of through traffic south of the Hoen Summerfield intersection for operational efficiently and to eliminate the southbound merge. After an operational review of the intersection, it was determined that there would a be negligible increase in delay for that movement through the intersection, with a benefit to the traffic calming.
Intersection of Summerfield Road and Hoen Avenue
Based on community input received during the May 17, 2021 informational meeting, the intersection of Brookshire and Summerfield Road was redesigned to install the right turn lane, southbound at Brookshire.
An informative Community Meeting was held on Thursday, May 27 to discuss planned improvements along Summerfield Road between Bethards Drive and Hoen Avenue to enhance access for walking, biking and driving.
