Religious / North Richland Hills
The services of DeShazo Group were retained by Gateway Church to analyze the traffic characteristics on Davis Boulevard (FM 1938) in North Richland Hills at the Starnes Road/Rumfield Road intersection and at the church driveway. The purpose of this effort was to evaluate the existing turning maneuvers at the intersections and determine whether the existing lane markings could be modified to address the issue of northbound motorists accessing the church driveway by traveling the wrong direction in the southbound left-turn bay that served Rumfield Road.
DeShazo commissioned turning movement counts in order to evaluate the conditions. Based upon the volumes and projected queue analysis, the following modifications to the existing roadway striping was recommended.
The calculated 95th percentile queue into the church driveway for the current northbound, left-turn demand, averages less than one vehicle during all time periods. Hence, the proposed configuration can accommodate future traffic growth as well.
