Completed in November 2008, the FM 2920 Access Management Study identifies access management improvement techniques for the FM 2920 corridor from Hempstead Road to Lexington Road. The study includes collection of sufficient information to measure, evaluate, and identify a range of viable short, medium, and long-term improvement concepts that will improve safety and mobility; reduce motorist delay; reduce crash rates; enhance land use; and preserve long-term property values along the corridor. These strategies will focus also on providing opportunities along some sections of the corridor for pedestrian connectivity as well as aesthetic and landscaping treatments, which will help stimulate economic vitality.
