Have you ever seen someone whiz by on Ygnacio Valley Road and wondered, How fast is that guy going?
The city of Walnut Creek is looking for answers. City plans include a Capital Investment Project for the installation of electronic speed display signs on YVR, particularly between Walnut Boulevard and Bancroft Road that experience many collisions, according to a five-year analysis, quoted in a staff report for the Transportation Commission.
The commission meets at 6 p.m. Thursday in the Council Chamber, City Hall, 1666 N. Main St., Walnut Creek.
The commission is taking a look at a proposal to broaden the scope of the project to include changeable message signs to alert drivers to hazards. For instance, those signs would have been helpfulr pole on YVR down the hill from John Muir Medical Center and forced the closure of eastbound lanes on the major artery through Walnut Creek and Concord.
