Bu~SCHKE D. ENC., P.E., PRESIDENT ' 1712 B~o~oMOOR, Sui~ 21 Z (409) 776.1822 BRV~N, TEx~s 77802 Fix (409) 776-b119 Apri128, 1993 Mr:. Larry Wells Municipal Development group 203 forth Holleman Drive East College ~ta~ion, Texas ?7840 ItE: Sup lemental Report p Traffic Impact Analysis fora 65.b1-Acre Tract in College Station, Texas Dear Mr. Wells: On Septe~ber 7, 1992, I submitted a you a report discussing the .referenced Traffic Impact Analysis.: The study site consisted of 65.61 acres and three separate. tracts of land, as shown in Attachment 1. It is my understanding that thee.northern 18.5-acre NCNB Tract is being considered for development. It is also my understat~dvag that a new car :dealership v~i11 be construct~e~ on the southern half of the Tract,: and that a used car dealership will be developed on the northern half..... The Traffic Impact Anal. ss assumed that the 18.5-acre NCNB Tract would be developed y as a ecial retail facili ,the worst-cage scenario. Anew car dealership and a :used car dealership are both very low traffic generators for both p~rak-period .and ~weekd`ay conditions. Traffic .generated by these two developments v~ould not be expected to result in any traffic congestion alon the State Highway 6~ Erontage~ Road or conflict with the 1!~~ characteristics g_ of existing businesses in the area. These develo mehts would not conflict with the ea~king conditions Qi~ the Movie 12 Tract _p P because peak activities at car dealerships generally do not occur. during-the evening periods. Although realis~c numbers are nat readily available for new and used ear dealerships, it can be assumed that the raf~ic projections used for the NCNB Tract in he SeptemUer 7,1992 study are probably four td ~tve times higher than ghat would be expected from the new and used car dealerships. ~. t~gain, because the proposed new and used car derships are not expected to generate significant traffic volumes and certainly no major peakuag conditions, capacity of the interchange of State.,. Highway b and :State. Highway 34 (Harvey Road} should not be affected significantly, and much less that r~hat would have pccur~red i€ the NCNB Tract l'~ad been developed as a specialty retail area. Specializing in: Traf, fic Engineering Roadway Design ~ Accident Analysis j ~ i L'~t`1'y Mr. wells April. 28, 1993 Page: Z Construction of a U-turn lane connecting the southbound west State Highway 6 Frontage Road with the northbound east State Highway b Frontage Load will not be necessitated by the develo menu of the new and used car dealerships;: however, construction of the UMturn lane P remains an excellent idea far the future. There has been same estton as to the need for a decelera~an lane to serve the access locations far the new and used care: dealership developments. ~ilthough decelerarion lanes are l generally considered a goad idea,.:. they are much more effective when right-turning traffic volumes are high .and vehicles :behind the right-turning .vehicles have to share .the same lase as , • f + the t~r~ung ~arffic. The State...... ~ghway ~ Frontage Road adjacent to the new and used car ! develo meats site will eventuall rovide two northbound lanes. The number of vehicles P YP g into the site will be relatively low and sporadic. Heneet a deceleration lane would provide only mammal benefits. The., con~~truction of wide curb returns far the. entrances to the new and used car developments sites would be about as effective as deceleration lanes. The September 7,1-:992 study report,also recommended the extension of a rear alleey from I~arvey Road through the Movies ~2 deveiopm~nt and Ito the NCI Tract, (See Attachment 2 .) ~ This alley will provide convenient access to the south for. the benefit of College Station residents using the facilities. Extension of the alley through the ~~1~1B Tract to the east ..State ~' Hi hwa ~ Fronta a Road is not recommended because it would encoura a throe traffic on g Y 8 ''I~~1 the alle .Besides,.. other roadwa fac` .des. provide the desirable gavel routes. Extension. of the ,, Y Y ~;? alley tbsough the new car dealership area to the used car dealership would provide convenience ~~ ~ but is not neces to reduce con estion. sary h ~ The number of vehicles enerated b a used car dealershi is relativel low. A. southern g Y_ P Y ~'~~~ ~ access to the used ear dealershi' would be desirable for some atrons of the dealershi • .however P P P~ '~ traffic. congestion is not expected to occur if the alley is not extended. The decision to extend the a11ey through the new car dealership is not a critical rarffic engineering decision.. The alley ~~ extension would be for convenience onl , ;.~ Y In unary, the development of the new and used ear dealerships should not.. create ~c congestion probtems along the eat State Highway 6 Frontage Roads or at the interchange of State Highway +~ and Harvey Road. These ....types of deyelop~ent would generate far fewer vehicles per day or during the peak-hour periods .when compared to the special retail ~ developments used to conduct he on ' ~raf~c act stud for the 6~.bl-acre develo meat l~ P Y P ~~ _ that includes the ro osed sites for the new and used car develo meats. The. develo menfis do ~~ P p P P not require an acceleration lane or full extension of the alle to oxide ~rear~ access from the Y l~ south. { ~~ '~ '~~ ~~ ,, ~, ~~ ~y~~:S~~OEO:~~~ ~3 ~jON ~~ ~~~~ scow & WHITE REGI0N1~1 CLINIC 1 1 _ NOT TO SCALE xx• _~~~_ ,• x~t x=x~ r }=~f ~~:f~!- ~ _ ~ t: to ~ ~. ~~=~1~'- =x~ 1 l '~ ~ r ~~' USED CAR DEALERSHIP ~~. ~~ ~ _: ~ :j _ ~ :=f11:- ~f •~f ; ~1~~1 ~~''jf '_~~' r~_''= r x,~ ~::.:j ~: x~l x~x;.x; l~~r~~~~~~~li:~~~~f~~s~l~f:r . ~'~ ACRE }~r1`xx: :x1.18.5- ~' :=Ft - x'x• r r _r ~=• NEW CAR DEALERSHIP x ~x1~ :• _~ 1 NCNB TRACT ~~: 111; !x ~ . ~1= r r:: :_: ?rf x: • :x 1t1~••x: x' x11.11!11x• •! ~~•~•s~1: Ill, •r~rsr••~ x1,' ' ,. • .. ••„ •• .:•..•. ;, .,:,, ~,,, . 1 , • , , ..: • • -- • 1 • ~-1.1.1•ii•"-•i''ti Ii - •1•i ~ •'~ ~•~ ' 'tid~Y-•i :i ~• 1 '= i =i:: i '=:p 111•'.111 •~.,•,. • - • -•1 • • •'- •y'i• !
