4-Way Stop Signs Needed @ Mueller & Barbara Jordan
by James Nortey on August 11th, 2013

With the advent of the new HEB location, there is an increase in traffic down Barbara Jordan headed east. Previously, the traffic on Mueller Street was directed towards the Mosaic/Dell/Ronald McDonald House or northwards to 51st street.

I don’t think there is enough traffic to warrant a stoplight, but I do think there should be stop signs on both sides of Mueller Street at the Barbara Jordan intersection to slow traffic down and to err on the side of greater public safety.

Thoughts?

James - I've asked for traffic control at this intersection to be discussed at the next Transportation Committee meeting in late August. I'll post my notes from the meeting to CitiCite as soon as possible after the meeting. The City had previously indicated that they were doing traffic studies to determine whether a 4-way STOP or a signal were warranted. There were 3 police cars when I went by there this afternoon and I suspect there had been a crash :-(

Betsy,

I'm glad to see that you are on top of this. Thank you so much for your engagement with this issue. Hopefully, this will be resolved very, VERY soon.

Bike Lanes coming to E. 51st: Berkman to Manor
by Betsy on August 22nd, 2013

Dee Desjardin let me know that she got some communication from the City saying that in conjunction with the resurfacing of East 51st from Berkman to Manor, the City is implementing a 'road diet' like they did on Manor a couple of years ago. Instead of 2-through lanes in each direction, there will be 1-lane in each direction, a center turn lane and bike lanes. They are nearly through with the resurfacing and the stripes should be down in a couple of weeks.

That is great news, thanks for the update. Now let's see how many people know 1) to come to a complete stop, THEN 2) to yield to vehicles already stopped to their right. My sister-in-law would take a "head count" (WRONG); I've seen others use "guts to open" (WRONG AGAIN). That is a weird intersection.
