  • Safety Data
    • Historical Data (3-year average) 4 accidents/year
      • Accidents/1 Million Entering Vehicles .9
      • Statewide Average/1 Million Entering 1.2
    • Safety is better than average but can certainly be improved upon

Results –

  • Controlled East/West Flows without detrimental loss of service
  • Introduce gaps in traffic
  • Appropriate service opportunity for north/south streets
    • Residents
    • UWM Residence Hall
    • Wisconsin Paperboard
    • Areawide Benefit
