Public Works

Driveway density increases the potential for crashes. Edgewood Road SW, with eleven accesses in less than 1,500 feet, and 16th Avenue SW with 8 accesses, have twice the crash potential of Williams Boulevard (3 accesses).

Access Management is a means to maintain the safe and efficient movement of traffic by controlling the design, location and number of accesses and is needed to serve two necessary but conflicting functions of the road system, through traffic and traffic accessing adjacent properties.
