City transportation crews will soon begin work on a series of improvements to the intersection at Rolling Hills Drive and Old Missouri Road.
The project was first announced by Mayor Lioneld Jordan at the May 1 City Council meeting during a discussion about the reclassification of Rolling Hills Drive. Jordan told the audience he was currently working with the city’s engineering staff to add a traffic signal at the intersection, which becomes congested during the mornings and afternoons before and after school hours at nearby Butterfield Trail Elementary.
The work includes a new three-way traffic signal, markings for left- and right-turn lanes, and new stop bars on the pavement to indicate where drivers and bicyclists are required to stop in compliance with the signal.
Chris Brown, city engineer, said the plan is to have the signal installed and operating before school starts in August, barring any unforeseen delays in delivery of equipment and control hardware.
