Parking Restrictions on Talokas Lane
Department of Engineering – Traffic Engineering Division
Approve the attached ordinance that establishes a “No Parking Anytime” zone for the northernmost 455 feet of Talokas Lane along its western curb.
Talokas Lane provides access for semi-trucks to the rear loading docks at the Walmart Supercenter on Gateway Drive. Many drivers park their trucks along the western side of Talokas Lane while waiting to load or unload at Walmart. The parked trucks restrict visibility for vehicles exiting the commercial strip center on the western side of Talokas Lane, as they are unable to see other trucks traveling south from the Walmart loading docks.
A ‘No Parking Anytime’ zone is needed along the western side of Talokas Lane to retain the proper intersection sight distance for vehicles exiting the adjacent commercial strip center.
All costs to fabricate and install the “No Parking Anytime” signs shall 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 Talokas Lane.
