Blossom Hill Road Traffic Safety

Project Background

Residents have expressed concerns about traffic safety and vehicle speeds along this arterial corridor of Blossom Hill Road between Camelia Terrace and Hillbrook Drive. The corridor is well used by Blossom Hill Park users and children attending Blossom Hill Elementary. In fiscal year 2020-21, a traffic safety study was completed for this segment (the study may be viewed here). The study identified opportunities for improvements to the corridor to benefit multi-modal transportation, provide traffic calming, and increase safety. Town staff shared the recommendations made in the study for the safety improvements at the first community meeting for the project held in January 2021. The Town is looking to make improvements in phases pending available funding for the project.

The Town staff has developed a concept plan to install striping and bollards to create Class IV bike lanes and reduce travel lanes to one lane each direction within the project segment. The plan is to make the proposed improvements as part of the 2023 Street Repair and Resurfacing Project in the summer. The concept plan will be presented at the Community Meeting scheduled for September 22, 2022. The concept plan may be viewed here.
