Randall Drive at Racine Drive/Crew Drive Intersection Improvement
Project Description

University of North Carolina Wilmington suspected that the signal at the Randall Drive at the Racine Drive/Crews Drive intersection may not have been operating properly per the signal design plans. DAVENPORT was contracted to investigate the current signal operations. We performed a diagnostic review of the signal controller to determine the cause and extent of any malfunction. Due to traffic congestion and safety concerns, DAVENPORT also performed an analysis for the intersection for the existing morning, noon, and evening peaks. Collision diagrams were developed from University Police accident reports and included in the study. The analysis also specifically reviewed and evaluated the potential for providing a protected left turning movement for the eastbound left turn on Randall Drive. In addition, recommendations for turn lane storage requirements were provided for all approaches. DAVENPORT was retained for the design phase of the project regarding the recommended improvements. Design services included traffic signal design, construction cost estimating, and traffic signal construction support services.
