INNOVATIVE INTERSECTIONS AT BELCHER ROAD AND SR 60
BES was tasked to reevaluate the traffic analysis at Belcher Rd & SR 60 intersection for median modifications to accommodate extended queues. Modifications were considered for the Build-1 Alternative traffic conditions in 2037, such as closing the median on S. Main Ave (West side of the intersection along SR 60), closing the medians on 1st St and Landry Ave (East side of the intersection along SR 60), and choosing between removing a signal/closing the median, converting to a bi-directional median opening, or retaining the signal and coordinating with the signal at SR 60 for the Walmart-Publix entrance & S. Belcher Rd. signalized intersection (South side of the intersection along S Belcher Rd). The purpose of the traffic analysis was to evaluate the Build-1 Alternative traffic conditions at the intersection for the design year 2037 with the proposed median modifications. Existing traffic volumes were collected as a part of traffic data collection efforts for medians/signalized intersections.
