The WJB Corridor is a TxDOT roadway with five traffic lanes that transitions to four lanes around Sue Haswell Park. With the growth in the area, there is significant traffic congestion and safety concerns. There are existing underground and aerial utilities in the right of way, sidewalks in most locations, and limited lighting along the corridor. This project aims to improve safety and mobility for all travel modes, improve access and connections, and revitalize the corridor.
Project Considerations and Improvements:
- Safety and mobility for all users – drivers, pedestrians, and bicyclists
- Access and connections that consider the blend of residential, commercial, park, and historic properties
- Crash history and patterns
- Traffic congestion
- Drainage and stormwater infrastructure
- Location and placement of utilities
All Balanced with Community Input
For this project to be successful, we will work alongside the public to develop plans that improve safety and travel, as well as reflect community values and enhance the character of the area. We encourage all community members to get involved and share input throughout this project. Together, we will make WJB a safe place to live and enjoy for years to come.
Who is planning this project?
The City is working in partnership with TxDOT and the BCS MPO to develop this project.
- City – Undertaking the planning effort
- TxDOT – Constructing improvements
- BCS MPO – Contributing funding
The City has hired an engineering team led by Binkley and Barfield to study the WJB Corridor, conduct community outreach, and develop plans.
What is happening first?
The project began in December 2017 and the first step is to identify and understand existing conditions and community issues. This starts by gathering input from the community and includes reviewing traffic counts, crash data, pinch points, and constraints, such as right of way and utilities, and coordinating with the City’s adopted transportation plans and policies.
