Parking Restrictions on Billings Road
Department of Engineering – Traffic Engineering Division
Approve the attached ordinance that establishes a “No Parking Anytime” zone on Billings Road between Brittany Drive and Old Dominion Road.
The Fall Line Trace crosses Billings Road approximately midway between Brittany Drive and Old Dominion Road. Cyclists and pedestrians frequently park their vehicles along the shoulder of Billings Road to access the Trace. These parked vehicles restrict visibility for other cyclists and pedestrians on the Trace as they attempt to cross Billings Road. Likewise, the parked vehicles also restrict the ability of the drivers on Billings Road to see the approaching cyclists and pedestrians.
‘No Parking Anytime’ zones are needed along both shoulders to retain the proper sight distance at the intersection of Billings Road and the Fall Line Trace.
All costs to install the “No Parking Anytime” signs will come from the Traffic Engineering Division’s operating budget.
Projected Annual Fiscal Impact Statement
All costs to repair/replace vandalized or damaged signs shall come from the Traffic Engineering Division’s operating budget.
All traffic ordinances require Council approval.
Approve the proposed “No Parking Anytime” ordinance for Billings Road.
