This request is to set up a traffic signal at the intersection of FM-423 and Smotherman Road. There are many cars who turn to FM-423 from Smotherman Rd and vice versa with a high risk. The following are the key resources who use this intersection.

(1) The new community  "Cottonwood creek" has come up in 2017 and it has 55 homes. This is located within 0.5 miles of the the above intersection and the community members use the intersection throughout the day.

(2) The residents of existing community "Trails" (~1700 homes) which is located within 1.0 mile from the intersection also use it on a daily basis.

(3) There are 3 commercial complexes which are being built in the above intersection and seems to get ready by July 2021 and we anticipate more traffic flow (more cars who would use the above intersection in the near future to visit those commercial complexes)

(4) The Wisdom Montessori school for kids of less than 7 years old is located at an arms distance from the same intersection and the parents frequently drop/pick up their kids through the day going via the same intersection. There is a big line of cars in the morning and afternoon.

(5) The Corbell elementary school is located within 0.75 miles from the intersection and majority of the parents drop/pick up their kids going via the same intersection. There is a big line of cars in the morning and afternoon.

(6) There are 421 (202 in 2019, 178 in 2020 and 41 - Till Mar,2021) intersection related accidents recorded in FM-423 from Jan/2019 to Mar/2021. Refer to the details (source - CRIS).

We continue to see heavy traffic despite the COVID-19 pandemic. It will certainly be much more traffic as the pandemic gets over. Our request is to set up a traffic signal in the intersection of FM-423 and Smotherman Road to avoid any major accidents in the future and keep our growing communities safe and secure
