Jensen and Navigation Roundabout

Recommended Posts

Hallelujah!  Great Opportunity to make a Gateway-Statement to the Navigation District.  Guadalupe Plaza Park could use a little love too.

Can't wait to see the progress from this and the continued growth in the direct vicinity, with the Ancorian Project on Commerce behind the shopping center currently there and the future of the big lot between Canal and Runnels being potentially sold to Midway in the KBR transaction. Hopefully the BBP incorporates more improvements to Guadalupe Park Plaza as mentioned above.

That’s fair. I was just thinking that if it’s meant to be a gateway to the East End, then it would be silly for one of the streets off of the roundabout to be a short dead end street.

 

Also, I would guess that blocking off Runnels would have an effect on traffic flow and would mean whatever traffic analysis was used to justify this change to the intersection (which I assume was based in part on an increase in traffic volume) may no longer be applicable.

On the Agenda for the January meeting, the East End District is considering  an additional traffic study for alternatives to a roundabout at Jensen/Navigation. I wonder what caused this seemingly sudden change of plan.

Probably the budget is too tight to afford a nice roundabout

is it the east end district that wanted the roundabout in the first place, or are they just reacting to a situation proposed by the city?

13. B. 3. is a note that they will report on the roundabout in the board meeting this week.

10. Consider partial payment of reinvestment zone contribution to construction of roundabout at Jensen and Navigation.

 

So I'm guessing they will pick up where they left off on this? I never heard whether they voted to continue with an additional study to determine how to go forward

Glad this is still going to be turned into a roundabout. We definitely need a lot more of these in town. They are way more versatile than a regular intersection. Probably should also be one on Nav. and N. York.

Looks like the board will be looking to approve the selection of the committee assigned to the project this Thursday.
