Downtown Angleton Livable Center Study
On April 13, 2021, the City Council adopted Ordinance No. 20210413-028 which adopts the Downtown Angleton Livable Center Study as an extension of the City's Comprehensive Plan.
The purpose of the Downtown Angleton Livable Center Study is to guide future development of Downtown Angleton by providing strategies and tools to address building form, plan future improvements, enhance public spaces, improve bike and pedestrian facilities, and create an overall sense of place. This plan was developed through a comprehensive process that considered the existing conditions, and incorporated the desires of the community. It also takes into account the market realities. This approach allows the resulting plan to provide a realistic vision for the future and sustainable growth through active implementation.
The City of Angleton is currently evaluating improvements to safety and mobility (pedestrians and vehicles) based on expected growth along the Henderson Road corridor from State Highway 288B to State Highway 35. On June 22, 2021, HDR Engineering, Inc. (HDR) completed the Henderson Road Traffic Study for this area that identified future traffic loading and required improvements to mobility and safety in the area. In order to accomplish these identified improvements, the existing open, roadside ditch (Henderson Ditch) adjacent to the existing Henderson Road, which accepts runoff from a large portion of the roadway and external drainage areas, must be enclosed along the full project length to provide sufficient room for a boulevard section with sidewalks.
Approximately 271 acres drains to Henderson Road and outfalls at Brushy Bayou. Existing and proposed conditions models were created to identify any potential impact to upstream or downstream areas.
The City of Angleton (City) has requested that HDR Engineering, Inc. (HDR) perform a traffic study along Henderson Road from N Velasco Street (BU 288) to E Mulberry Street (SH 35). The objective of this study was to evaluate traffic conditions for Year 2020 and Build Year 2030 and to provide recommendations to improve the traffic flow throughout the corridor. The City has been undergoing a lot of new development with several residential communities proposed or undergoing construction. This study is intended to advise the City on the improvements required to maintain adequate transportation operations along the corridor. The purpose of this report is to document the study methodology, analysis results, and recommendations.
