ANA Executive Committee Meeting 5-24-2006
Gretchen Vaden, President ANA opened the meeting.
John Kelly, VP DMJM Harris – gave an update on the Loop
1/MOPAC Corridor Project. The proposed
interim project involves the possibility of adding one managed lane on each
side of MOPAC from the river to Parmer Lane. The project has to show a need for increased capacity in order to
proceed with the sound walls. If at the
end of the project the collective decision is that no improvement or increased
capacity can be undertaken, then there will be no sound walls. The outcome hinges on the ability to increase
capacity on MOPAC.

All that remains to be done on the Allandale Sidewalk
Project is to complete the corner at Marilyn and Allandale. Some traffic signal
conduit needed to be lowered so that it would not conflict with the sidewalk.
This was being done yesterday and should be completed today. We should complete
the sidewalk at this location by Friday.
