Mesa St. SH 20 Corridor Study

This traffic engineering and planning study will identify and evaluate all the various transportation aspects associated with the Mesa Street (SH 20) corridor. The study outcome will be a master plan of recommended short-, mid- and long-term multimodal solutions to upgrade the 12-mile SH 20 corridor.

Mobility-based aspects that will be studied include:

  • Accident-prone locations and analysis
  • Driver, pedestrian and bicyclist safety
  • Signalization and signage
  • Mass transit accommodation
  • Forecast traffic and travel demand through 2040
  • Access management
  • Potential design alternatives to upgrade SH 20
  • Agency, stakeholder and public involvement

Study Limits

The study area spans 12 miles from Doniphan Drive to Texas Avenue.

Study Schedule

Currently in the data-gathering and data research stage and includes:

  • Accident tabulation
  • Environmental constraints mapping
  • Historic traffic count evaluations
  • Future traffic count estimating
  • Demographic trends
  • Initial outreach to municipalities, agencies, regional transportation-related offices and SH 20 corridor stakeholders

The study duration is an anticipated 18-month process with completion of the recommended master plan by Summer 2017.
