Downtown traffic

On Thursday, May 23, the Auburn City Council will view a presentation on the completed citywide traffic study during a work session.

The session will last from 3 to 5 p.m. next Thursday in the City Meeting Room on Tichenor Avenue.

The consulting firm Skipper Consulting will give the presentation, and the session will be open to the public.

Work on the traffic study, which began in November 2017, looked at a wide array of elements affecting traffic in the city, including traffic patterns, lights, major intersections and bicycle and multi-use paths, among other considerations. Out of the city's 64 intersections with a traffic signal, 59 were evaluated.

The study materials will include recommendations for improving traffic, like adding additional turn lanes at some intersections and act as a plan for the city's capital traffic projects for future years.

"The study is huge, and they’ve got all kinds of drawings. It’s hundreds and hundreds of pages," City Manager Jim Buston told The Villager last week.

The traffic study is the first citywide in more than a decade.
