 CITY COUNCIL AGENDA ITEM NO. 10

Meeting Date: March 28, 2006

Subject/Title: Adopt a Resolution amending the 2005/06 – 2009/10 Capital Improvement Program (CIP) to include the Sand Creek Road / Shady Willow Lane Traffic Signal Project.

Prepared by: Engineering: Randy Craig

Approved by: Engineering: Bailey Grewal

RECOMMENDATION
Adopt a Resolution amending the 2005/06 – 2009/10 Capital Improvement Program (CIP) to include the Sand Creek Road / Shady Willow Lane Traffic Signal Project.

PREVIOUS ACTION
None.

BACKGROUND
Shady Willow Lane was recently opened from Sand Creek Road to Lone Tree Way which has increased the volume of traffic at the intersection of Sand Creek Road/Shady Willow Lane. Two development projects adjacent to this intersection are conditioned to construct improvements such as lane widening and the traffic signal; however, the timing of these developments does not coincide with the needs associated with the increased volumes of traffic.

Staff conducted a signal warrant analysis and intersection traffic volumes meet the necessary warrants for a traffic signal. As an interim measure this intersection was changed to an all-way stop until a signal could be constructed. Staff has observed backups on westbound Sand Creek Road during peak pm hours. The traffic backup has created an urgency to install an interim traffic signal at this location.

In order to implement the improvements expeditiously staff requests that City Council establish a budget for this project by amending the 2005/06 -2009/10 CIP to include this project.

FISCAL IMPACT
The attached CIP budget sheet reflects funding for the design and construction of interim improvements in 2005/2006. The interim improvements include signal design (by staff) and construction through the informal bid process. The construction contractor would be required as part of their bid to provide temporary equipment including wooden poles and signal heads to be installed on wire hangers. The improvements south of the intersection will be permanent installations; the improvements north of the intersection are temporary due to insufficient right-of-way, lane widening and ultimate curb line on Shady Willow Lane. The City would supply a traffic controller, cabinet, and signal LED heads and two signal poles at the ultimate location. Staff has also included funds within this budget to finish the design of the ultimate signal for this location. This work is estimated to cost approximately $215,000.

The 2006/2007 budget includes the construction of the ultimate traffic signal including minor widening, the removal of the wooden poles and temporary signals on wire hangers, and the installation of the ultimate traffic signal. This work could be completed in conjunction with the development project on the northwest corner of the intersection or by the City if these developments do not materialize.

Funds for the City’s share of the ultimate improvements derive from roadway facility fees and Redevelopment.
