Local Area Traffic Management
The Local Area Traffic Management program (LATM) is a request-based program to improve the quality and safety of neighborhood streets. This is achieved by installing traffic calming devices along the requested street segments. These devices may include, but are not limited to, speed humps, speed tables, speed cushions, roundabouts, median islands, chicanes and bulb outs.
Active LATM Speeding Projects and Future Requests
Thank you to everyone who submitted requests to the LATM Program focused on speeding along neighborhood streets. The LATM Program is not accepting any more requests for this round of projects. A report to City Council on the results of the pilot program is tentatively scheduled to occur on November 22, 2016 during the work session.
Citizens may continue to submit requests, however these requests will be held for possible inclusion in a future request round should the Bryan City Council approve the continuation of the program.

Upcoming LATM Safety Improvement Projects
Broadmoor Drive from Nash Street to Trophy Drive
Update: On Friday, August 26, 2016, construction of the new modern roundabout at Broadmoor Drive and Nash Street was completed and is now open to through traffic. As a part of this project, permanent traffic islands were
constructed at the intersection of Broadmoor Drive and Trophy Drive as well as new pedestrian crosswalks and sidewalks, improving safety and walkability.
Minor construction activities will continue over the next few weeks, so the public is encouraged to use caution, pay attention, and remain alert as drivers become accustomed to the roundabout. The City of Bryan would like to thank the public for their patience and cooperation while this important project was under construction.
Work began on May 16, 2016 in response to community concerns regarding traffic associated with the apartment complex on the north side of Nash Street that are now open. The roundabout moderates the flow of traffic while also providing a safer, more efficient intersection for everyone. The permanent roundabout, which is larger than the temporary roundabout, is designed to work safely and efficiently with the new driveway of the apartment complex.
Construction on the permanent roundabout at Broadmoor Drive and Nash Street began May 16, 2016. This project was responsive to community concerns regarding traffic associated with the apartment complex on the north side of Nash Street that is now open. The roundabout moderates the flow of traffic while also providing a safer and more efficient intersection for everyone.
The permanent roundabout is larger than the temporary roundabout that was tested in November 2015 and is designed to work safely and efficiently with the new driveway of the apartment complex.
New sidewalks and crosswalks have also been constructed, improving safety for pedestrians. Permanent traffic signs and pavement markings further enhance the safe and efficient operation of the roundabout. There are brick pavers in the truck apron and the various traffic islands for aesthetics. The landscaping of the central island of the roundabout will begin once cooler temperatures return in September. The theme of the landscaping is a Monarch butterfly waystation and is being implemented by the City of Bryan’s Parks and Recreation Department.
In November 2015 the City of Bryan installed a temporary roundabout at the intersection of Broadmoor Drive and Nash Street for a three week test period.
The temporary testing revealed that the vast majority of motorists have an appropriate level of understanding of roundabouts and demonstrated their ability to travel through them safely. It also provided the opportunity to inform the public of what was being considered for this intersection. As the test was viewed as successful, the City of Bryan decided to move forward with the concept of this intersection being converted into a single lane roundabout.
These findings were shared at a community meeting held at City Hall on November 18, 2015. View the presentation here.

More Info About Roundabouts
While there are excellent examples of roundabouts in Bryan, particularly at College Main and Old College Road and at W. 23rd and Main Street, for some residents, this type of intersection may not be familiar. Here are some resources that will help you understand what roundabouts are and how to navigate them.
