Pape-Dawson completed a corridor study of 4.5 miles of Bandera Road (SH 16), including the intersection of Bandera Road and West Loop 1604 North, which TxDOT documented as the site of 92 collisions in 2017.
Our design for this project aimed to provide better connectivity to the City of Helotes, improve pedestrian crossings, and reduce vehicle collisions.
Our responsibilities included data collection; traffic forecasting; and researching population growth patterns, expected development, and land use to identify potential Superstreet concepts for the corridor.
Pape-Dawson was also instrumental in the public involvement process, managing the development of 3D visualizations for public meetings and responding to feedback. We also prepared a crash analysis to identify safety hot spots and used Surrogate Safety Assessment models to analyze potential crash locations.
