Kingwood Drive lights in danger
Posted on Jul 8th, 2016 Comments (0)
We are not in the City of Houston, but Kings Manor will definitely be impacted by this action to remove lights on Kingwood Drive.
 
From Councilman Dave Martin's Office:
Beginning on Monday, July 11 the City of Houston Public Works and Engineering Department (PWE) will begin placing traffic control modification advisory signage along Royal Forest Drive and Kingwood Drive in advance of phase two of the Royal Forest Drive Traffic Signal Removal study.
Phase one of this study began in March of this year with a traffic study conducted by PWE at the intersections of Kingwood Drive at Loop 494, Royal Forest Drive (road that goes into Randall's shopping center), Chestnut Ridge (road that is by Steinmart), Green Oak (the road by Starbucks)as well as Rockmead Drive(connecting road of Royal Forest and Chestnut Ridge)  and Rock Falls (exit from Kings Manor). The purpose of phase one of the study was to evaluate the possible removal of the traffic signal at Kingwood Drive and Royal Forest Drive to improve the overall traffic progression in the area. Phase one of the study has now been completed and Public Works and Engineering is preparing to begin phase two, which is to turn off the traffic signal at Royal Forest Drive.
 
Traffic signals can remedy many safety and operational problems at intersections. However, signals can also adversely affect intersections and overall areas. It is possible that a signal may no longer be warranted due to changes in traffic conditions or original unsuitable conditions such as geometric characteristics and/or proximity to other signalized intersections or facilities.
During phase two of the study, which begins on Monday, August 1 and ends Friday, September 30, the existing traffic signal will not be operational and instead, stop signs will be placed on both approaches on Royal Forest. Traffic on Kingwood drive will NOT stop at this intersection during this study and should continue through the intersection as if there were no signal. The westbound left turn lane on Kingwood Drive will be closed while the left turn movement will be allowed from the existing far left through lane.
 
Proper warning and regulatory signage will be in place at and in advance to the intersection to properly inform roadway users of these temporary modifications. In case of any immediate negative findings during the first portion of phase two of the study, normal signalized control can be restored if determined that is necessary. Our office has coordinated with the Houston Police Department and requested a Mobile Response Team to monitor this area as an added safety measure for the first week of phase two implementation. This is only a study as PWE will use the data to determine the feasibility of removing this signal on a permanent basis. Our goal is to decrease the amount of congestion between US HWY 59 to Green Oak Drive that exists during morning and evening peak hours.
 
If you have any questions or would like to discuss more in detail the scope of this study, please feel free to forward your comments to the Traffic Hotline at (832) 395-3000 or Traffic.Hotline@houstontx.gov or email districte@houstontx.gov.

There has been a great deal of discussion on Houston area water bills including those of Kings Manor. The discussion has been fueled with a lot of rumors and misstatements and the Board asked the MUD to help clarify the issue, the billing components and the fee schedules.  Thanks to the MUD Board for their help in preparing the attached document, and a special thanks to resident and MUD Board member Make Ates for his oversight.

Patrol needs help in identification of truck driver
Posted on Jul 1st, 2015 Comments (0)
Patrol and the MC Sheriff's Office are asking for our help identifying the driver of a truck with a very loud exhaust that comes into the subdivision on Royal Crossing and turns onto N. Kings Manor Dr.  I believe the vehicle then continues to Manor Falls, where it turns and races up Knights Cove to the back of the subdivision. The complainant notes that the vehicle has been heard between 5-8 pm and if it's the same vehicle, I have heard it in the early morning hours. From sound, it seems the truck is accelerating down the street at a higher than safe speed considering its summer and kids and families are out.  If you have information, please contact kingsmanorpatrol@gmail.com.
