Brownwood City Council will hear proposals on traffic changes near elementary school

A presentation will be made at Tuesday's Brownwood City Council meeting on how to make the traffic around a Brownwood elementary school safer and more efficient.

According to the Brownwood City Council's agenda, the Brownwood Independent School District worked with the city on developing solutions for the traffic at East Elementary School in Brownwood.

Brownwood City Council members will hear a plan on Tuesday at 9 a.m. that received input from Brownwood ISD, the Brownwood Police Department, the Brownwood Street Department and the Texas Department of Transportation.

The plan will include the following proposals:

  1. Northbound one-way on Vincent between Roanoke and Idlewild to allow for students to be dropped-off and picked-up from the passenger side of vehicles.
  2. Through-lane for travelers driving on Vincent who are not dropping off students.
  3. Four-way stop at the intersection of Idlewild and Vincent to prevent excessive lines of vehicles on Vincent and allow drivers to exit the school area efficiently.
  4. Nine additional parking spaces will be gained on Vincent Street with re-striping.

There will be a public information session on Tuesday, June 26 from 4 p.m. to 6 p.m. at East Elementary School in Brownwood.

If approved by the city, construction on the project would be completed prior to the start of classes in August.
