Warrenville Road and Batavia Road Right Turn Modification
This project modified the intersection from a right turn 'free flow' condition from westbound Warrenville Road to northbound Batavia Road to an all way stop condition on a trial basis. The purpose of this modification is to allow for future potential on street parking along Batavia Road as part of the Old Town Redevelopment Site #2 Preferred Plan. The City's traffic consultant performed a pre-trial traffic analysis for this modification to ensure traffic flow patterns on these streets and the adjacent River Road did not result in significantly longer vehicle queue times. During the trial period, the City's traffic consultant re-analyzed the intersection and found that traffic was still operating at an acceptable level, it enhanced pedestrian safety and made it safer to potentially construct angled on-street parking along the east side of Batavia Road without significant adverse impacts.
CITY COUNCIL DIRECTION
On July 18, 2022, City Council accepted the recommendation from the Community Development Committee of the Whole to retain the all-way stop condition at the intersection as a permanent improvement.
