Roadway System Policy
Plano will develop a safe and efficient roadway system.
Develop a transportation plan that addresses all modes of travel, while acknowledging vehicular traffic is expected to continue to be the primary mode of travel for residents and the workforce of Plano.
Continue to improve upon Plano’s Intelligent Transportation System for the roadway network, through efforts such as smart traffic signals and data collection systems.
Improve intersections of bicycle trails, pedestrian pathways, and streets where necessary for increased visibility, safety, and comfort.
Review and update roadway standards to efficiently and safely accommodate all modes of transportation.
Develop criteria to assess the costs and effectiveness of pilot transportation projects.
Identify and improve locations within the city’s transportation infrastructure to meet or exceed Americans with Disability Act (ADA) standards.
Coordinate with neighboring communities to explore mutually beneficial regional transportation approaches that improve traffic flow within and between jurisdictions.
Review and update the Traffic Impact Assessment (TIA) threshold and standards to better evaluate the impacts of new and redevelopment projects on existing neighborhoods, the surrounding community, and the roadway system.
