Getting the Raised Median Design You Want: US 69 (South Broadway) in Tyler, Texas

The US 69 - South Broadway corridor is located in the southern part of Tyler, a growing city in east Texas with a population of about 85,000. Over the past decade, the Tyler District has been very progressive with the use of raised medians on urban arterial streets. The use of the raised medians follows the goals the District has established for reducing conflict points and increasing safety and mobility on arterial roadways. This paper contains a description of the corridor, a discussion of the success of the consensus-building group established by the Texas Department of Transportation Tyler District and the City of Tyler, and comments on the development of a corridor model, public involvement in the project, key elements of the project development process, and the evidence there is of the success achieved in this project.
