The #1 accident prone location is none other than Center St. & Pasadena Blvd. Why do I remember this being an issue with the city council & the building of the Providence at that location?

I noticed they dropped the speed limit from 50 to 40 right before Walmart on East Blvd.

Not sure. Going southbound from 225, it's just before Walmart.

Has there been an increase or has it stayed the same prior to the Providence at both Center at Pasadena Blvd and also Hillshire?

I would have to try and find those open records from several years ago, but I would say since the current report references that one particular intersection, that it has increased since the Providence opened. I had included that intersection and a couple blocks either way from the data I received years, ago as I recall.

You could also look up the minutes of the workshops ect. prior to the building when those discussion were going on and read the numerous comments about the lack of traffic concerns etc. at that time.

I'm sure some others could comment about their concerns about future traffic issues if that project was allowed to be built at that location. Its all in the minutes. Numerous letters were sent to the state about traffic concerns if they were allowed to build at that location.

It's time they tear out the medians and put in a center left turn lane.

The signs posted at those turn locations that tell you to pull forward to clear the street are about as silly as it gets. Unless you drive a mini-car, you aren't going to clear the traffic lanes.

Can the removal of the medians installation of turning lanes be put on the ballot by petition?

So, maybe the Providence is not causing more accidents. Seems the additional commercial locations may be the cause. When HEB expands it may even be worse.

Council also heard from citizen LC Butler who lives in the Providence Town Square senior apartments. Butler said he and other residents and visitors to the complex located on Center Street south of Pasadena Boulevard have difficulties exiting the property.

"Someone is going to get hurt. It's terrible. The speed limit is 40 and if you want to go south, you've got a problem," he said.

This is what happens when council crams a 25 acre project into a much smaller space just so someone, IMO, could make some money.

Check the record, it normally calls for a minimum of 25 acres for such a project, as I remember, but council had the authority to allow it to be built on a much smaller property which also restricts traffic flow in and out of the property, IMO.

This is what happens when you have a Council that sells out looking for tax revenue in a city that is broke or on the verge of such and has friends that are investors in a piece of property that needs rezoning for a profit. ChiChing

Can you believe it?
Mouton was heading the CoC for a few short months, before deciding to run for Council. He hasn't even finished his first term and he has resigned to run for Mayor.

Does anyone else see the handwriting on the wall?
Who do you think is backing him? Who do you think will be pulling his strings?

This topic is about traffic and accidents. What does Mouton running for Mayor have to to with it? There exist a thread for that discussion.

If you had a clue what was going on behind the traffic discussion, you wouldn't make such ignorant posts.

Are the residents of the complex the cause?

How many residents of the Providence Town Square complex have been involved in an accident entering or exiting the property?

Maybe a Town Square would not have cause as many accidents.
