Traffic conditions at the intersection of Rock Springs Road and Welch have gotten worse and we need to find a solution! The intersection is currently operating at a service level of “F” overall (service level of F means volume of traffic using the intersection exceeds the volume of traffic the intersection was designed to handle) during the morning and evening rush hours.
Below are graphic renderings of the intersection of Rock Springs Road and Welch Road that display the existing lane configuration and traffic volumes collected in March. In the northbound and southbound directions (Rock Springs Road), there are two through lanes and a left turn lane. In the eastbound and westbound directions (Welch Road), there is a right turn, left turn and through lane. What complicates the solution is that the eastbound section of Welch and the northbound section of Rock Springs Road are maintained by Orange County.
The traffic volumes shown below for the morning rush hour are as follows:
The traffic volumes shown below for the evening rush hour are as follows:
We have a great relationship with our Orange County partners as well as MetroPlan Orlando, our regional transportation planning organization, which represents Orange, Seminole, and Osceola counties. We should be able to make improvements to the intersection in the short term (within the next six months) that will reduce the time you wait by fifty percent or more and begin to plan for a longer (3-5 year) solution for the intersection.
We are honored to have the following representatives involved in a collaborative effort to upgrade the intersection:
