Trial Redesign of Overland/Ranch/Kelmore Will Be on Council Agenda

The proposed temporary Quick Build re-design of the Overland/Ranch/Kelmore intersection is expected to enhance safety for all users of the intersection, while preserving existing parking, adding high-visibility crosswalks, and beautifying the gateway to/from the Culver Crest Neighborhood. It will be presented for approval at the City Council meeting on August 9, 2021. 

In response to community concerns regarding operational and safety conditions, especially regarding pedestrian crossings at the Overland/Ranch/Kelmore intersection, the Public Works Department’s Mobility and Traffic Engineering Division sought ATP Quick-Build grant funds to temporarily redesign the intersection and obtain community feedback. The City’s application was approved for a grant award in the amount of $157,000 to fund the temporary construction of the redesign concept.

Quick-Build projects seek to demonstrate temporary improvements that enhance multi-modal traffic safety and operations. The demonstration period gives the City the opportunity to obtain additional input from the community regarding the temporary redesign, which in turn will serve to improve the concept design and ensure that any final design and permanent construction will be the product of collaboration and consensus.

On January 14, 2021 and March 4, 2021, the Public Works Department held community meetings with area residents in order to listen to the community’s concerns and receive feedback on early drafts of the project concept plans. Revisions to the plans were made in response to the community’s input.

At the April 27, 2021 Mobility, Traffic & Parking Subcommittee meeting, the Public Works Department presented the final draft plans and a review of community outreach and response to the project. The Subcommittee subsequently recommended plan submission to the full City Council and recommended Council approval.

On August 9, 2021, City Council will decide whether to approve the Quick Build re-design of the Overland/Ranch/Kelmore intersection.
