Tarleton State University Signal Warrant and Design
Tarleton State University is experiencing parking and associated pedestrian challenges due to significant increases in student enrollment. The location of new campus parking supplies is across a four lane undivided TxDOT roadway from the main campus. The university requested assistance in obtaining a signalized crossing for pedestrians at an existing stop-controlled intersection.
Walter P Moore performed the following tasks for the pedestrian signal warrant study for Tarleton State University:
- Collected 24 hour weekday counts at the study location.
- Obtained pedestrian volume counts from the temporary shuttle bus service serving the new parking lots to forecast future pedestrian volumes.
- Performed Pedestrian Signal Warrant Analysis at the study location in accordance with the Texas MUTCD guidelines.
- Provided recommendations to install an actuated traffic signal including pedestrian facilities at the study intersection.
Walter P Moore performed the following tasks for the signal design at Washington Street and Saint Felix Street:
- Conducted site trips to evaluate the utility obstructions and issues to aid in the signal design specifications.
- Prepared plans, specifications and quantity estimates for the proposed signal design and pavement markings according to the governing agency (TxDOT Fort Worth) standards and requirements.
