Jefferson Ave and Bland Blvd w/o development

To the north of the proposed development lies another significant intersection, Jefferson Avenue at Bland Boulevard. This intersection carries a significant amount of traffic in all four directions and experiences a high number of turning vehicles onto and off of Jefferson Avenue resulting in a Level of Service D. It does have some high capacity features such as triple left turns on eastbound and westbound approaches and double right turn lanes on the eastbound approach. As you can see in the video, the lines of cars, especially northbound on Jefferson and turns off of Bland Boulevard, cannot clear the intersection in one cycle leading to congestion during rush hour traffic.

The following table shows traffic Level of Service and traffic delay.
