The city of Montgomery is working with the Texas Department of Transportation to add a traffic signal at the intersection of Hwy. 105 and Buffalo Springs Drive, Mayor Sara Countryman said. There is no timeline for the project, however.
“[Hwy.] 105 is much more heavily traveled, and every day there’s more cars hitting the road,” Countryman said. “We have found that slowing traffic down on [Hwy.] 105 is necessary because of all the growth and all the businesses going up and down that are being built on [Hwy.] 105.”
More than 22,000 cars travel through the intersection daily, according to a traffic study presented to City Council on Nov. 9. Drivers traveling on Buffalo Springs Drive have stop signs at the intersection, while those driving on Hwy. 105 do not have to stop.
The study predicts an additional 2,748 cars to travel through the intersection daily by 2023.
