Jetton Road Safety Study - 1 Year Later

Background
  • In 2016 the Town retained WSP/Parsons-Brinckerhoff to perform a safety study of Jetton Road from West Catawba Avenue to Charles Towne Lane.
  • WSP traffic engineers presented the study findings and discussed alternatives for resolving safety issues at the September 19, 2016 Town Board meeting.
  • Through early 2017, the Town conducted a survey of area residents and businesses.
  • At the February 6, 2017 Town Board meeting, the Board voted to reduce the speed limit along the Jetton Road corridor to a consistent 35 MPH and to revisit the safety concerns in one year.
One Year Later
On April 25, 2018 the Town will host a meeting to provide an update. Town staff will give a brief presentation, followed by a discussion with attendees. Key findings:
  • There have been 9 accidents at the Jetton/Old Jetton intersection in the past 12 months.
  • The average number of accidents at the Jetton/Old Jetton intersection for the previous 7 years has been 6 accidents/year.
  • Reducing the speed limit to 35 MPH did not have a positive effect on safety.
The Town Board wants to increase safety at the Jetton/Old Jetton intersection and is considering implementing the engineering consultant’s recommendation to restrict movements at the Jetton/Old Jetton intersection.
