IMPACT OF NORTH BROWNSVILLE RAILROAD RELOCATION DEMONSTRATION PROJECT ON U.S. 77/83 FRONTAGE ROAD TRAFFIC CIRCULATION. INTERIM REPORT

This report documents the estimated impacts of the proposed Railroad Relocation Demonstration Project (north of Brownsville, Texas) on U.S. 77/83 frontage road traffic circulation. The proposed design associated with this project includes the closure of frontage roads at the railroad crossings. This analysis specifically focused on potential adverse impacts to land use activities located adjacent to the frontage roads in the area surrounding the proposed railroad crossing. The results of the analysis indicate that there will actually be a benefit to traffic circulation (relative to existing conditions), should the proposed design be implemented. Issues related to safety of the railroad crossing are also discussed.
