Why: The intersection of Barnwell Road at Niblick Drive is the City’s highest-scoring intersection using the Intersection Improvement Policy, which awards points based on safety-related criteria. Specifically this intersection has high vehicle speeds on Barnwell Road, poor sight distances for drivers turning in and out of Niblick Drive, and a history of motor vehicular crashes with injuries.
What: The project would address poor sight distance from Niblick Drive and reduce high vehicle speeds on Barnwell Road. A preliminary study is underway (funded in FY22 Budget) to identify potential solutions.
