Womack Road at Vermack Road
The intersection at Womack Road and Vermack Road has been identified in the city’s Comprehensive Transportation Plan as a priority due to its current poor level of service. The Womack Road and Vermack Road intersection currently faces traffic flow and safety challenges that are projected to further deteriorate if no improvements are made.
Improvements to the level of service and pedestrian safety, including the addition of sidewalks and enhanced crosswalks have all been identified as objectives for this project.
In 2012, the city held a public meeting and considered both a roundabout and traffic signal alternative to improve the intersection.
Current Phase – Concept Consideration
City staff has been investigating additional alternatives as well as modifications to those already proposed.
