COVNA officers recently met with Anthony Alvarado from the Austin Transportation Department.

The main points that came from the meeting concerning the intersection of Crownspoint/Queenswood are:

Current traffic counts do not justify an all-way stop.
Speed limit on Crownspoint is set (30 mph) by width of street.
Average speed on Crownspoint is 31 mph (perception of speed is greater because of slight bend).
Visibility of Crownspoint/Queenswood intersection is an issue - hedges infringe on right-of-way.

Anthony Alvarado (ATD) will investigate bike/pedestrian lane on Crownspoint.
Anthony will request another traffic count be conducted.
COVNA will assist neighbors with trimming hedges for increased visibility.

We will discuss this at Spring Fling.  Our remedies are limited but the city departments are responsive and willing to consider alternatives.  APD has been helpful with increased patrols on Crownspoint and will schedule additional portable speed reminder radar units when available.
