LHHA Traffic Safety Task Force
Our radar speed sign has been located on Maloney northbound just past the church. The sign is adjacent to the community Christmas tree.
The sign company
is going to adjust for [adjusted] the sign for proper operations today or tomorrow [May 23rd or 24th]. We will let it run a couple of days at that location to iron out the kinks.
Lakemoor Hills Presb. Church was helpful to provide the location as we cannot locate it on street right-of-way. Other good neighbors have provided spots for the sign along Montlake both downhill and uphill. We could use a couple more sites along Maloney if any kindly neighbor would like to volunteer a nice open site. The traffic engineer turned down one volunteered Maloney site for being too close to the road. If you would like to volunteer your yard, please give me a call and I’ll drop by to take a look.
Thanks again for your assistance and support.”
Lakemoor Hills will again be seeing speed sensor tubes on Maloney Road and Montlake Drive. Once the tubes are placed for a few days and in a continued effort to keep our neighborhood streets safe, the LHHA Traffic Safety Task Force will be locating a radar speed sign at various locations along our two main roads. We are renting the sign for a limited period of time to determine feasibility for long-term use.
We will be testing the sign in initial locations starting this week (Wk of May 21) to iron out the kinks. It will simply state the speed limit (30 MPH) and your speed. It will provide a learning experience for us all.
The Knox County traffic engineer will analyze the data once we run the sign for a few weeks to determine the effect of the signs.
We will then have hard data to help us determine whether further use of the signs is warranted.
Dependant on the outcome, we may run another pilot after school starts in the fall.
Please note that the sign is very expensive and that your neighbors and the LHHA is paying for the rental and is responsible for the sign.
Please remember the importance of traffic safety in our neighborhood for all residents. School is out now or soon so more of our kids and grandkids will be home.
