City of Richmond Completes Updated Traffic Study
The City of Richmond has just completed a Traffic Study which included evaluation of traffic flow, incorporating stop signs, traffic signals, speed limits, and speed humps to name a few, as well as guidelines for further analysis necessary with future growth. Public safety is very important for the City of Richmond and improving traffic performance on current streets can reduce hazardous conditions and increase the efficiency of the City’s street system.
The data collected guides the City of Richmond for current and prospective growth as the traffic study looked to the City’s Comprehensive Master Plan, the Trails Master Plan and the Future Land Use Plan to address coming growth. The study also represents improvements the City can recommend to TXDOT concerning the primary arteries TXDOT manages within our City.

We encourage citizens to communicate to the City any problems you experience in the timing of traffic lights, especially those on the TXDOT roadways, since they are the principal roadways running through Richmond. The City can then notify TXDOT of the timing issues toward resolution. Communication from our residents also assists with traffic flow as we can’t know everything occurring on the roadways at all times. occurring on the roadways at all times.
