Has a traffic study been completed for this project?

Yes. Plus, based on feedback from neighbors in response to the Phase 1 Concept Plan, the street design has been revised to eliminate direct access from the development onto Dows Road. The Traffic Impact Study concludes:

  • Mt. Vernon Road has excess capacity and can absorb the traffic generated by the project;
  • Additional study is required to determine what, if any, traffic controls or calming measures should be implemented at the eastern-most access point with Mt. Vernon Road;
  • With the elimination of the direct access onto Dows Road (other than for farm-related services), minimal traffic impact from the project is anticipated to Dows Road or Wanatee Road.
