Traffic Engineering Assistance Program Study 7th Ave & HWY 67

In 2019, the City of Camanche received a Traffic Engineering Assistance Program  (TEAP) safety study for the intersection of 7th Ave and Highway 67.  This is the intersection where the City sees its highest vehicle accident rate.  This study is the first step towards making improvements to the intersection with the goal of reducing high velocity impact accidents at this location.  Here is the summary of what the study found.  The full text of the study can be found in the PDF provided below.


July 29, 2019

1. Local Jurisdiction: Camanche, IA

2. Reason TEAP Study Originated: The City of Camanche had requested the completion of a safety review study at the intersection of US Highway 67 & 7th Avenue, in the northern portion of the City of Camanche, Iowa. The study intersection is a four-way intersection with STOP control along the north/south roadway – 7th Avenue. Concerns exist regarding the vehicle speeds along US Highway 67 and frequency of failure to yield crashes from the STOP controlled approaches. The study assisted in reviewing the crash history, form of traffic control, intersection sight distance visibility, and provided potential safety improvements.

3. Scope of Services Provided: Performed field review and observation of existing conditions, collected and reviewed vehicle count data, evaluated relevant crash history and traffic operations; developed short and long term recommendations; prepared illustrative drawings of proposed improvements; and identified potential funding sources.

4. The Consultant, HR Green, submitted a final report dated July 29, 2019 with the following recommendations:


Short Term Recommendations


o Update signage throughout corridor


 Replace any signs that fail to meet minimum retroreflective standards

outlined in the MUTCD


 Add Intersection Warning Signs (W2-1, MUTCD) for both eastbound and

westbound approaches


o Refresh/replace stop line pavement markings on approaches on 7th Avenue


o Add centerline pavement marking to the south approach on 7th Avenue

o Remove the wooden poles on the northeast and southwest quadrants
Long Term Recommendations

o Modify the existing intersection geometry to a single lane roundabout to improve safety and operations

o If installation of a single lane roundabout is deemed unfeasible, the following
should be considered further:

 Consider modifying the existing intersection to All-Way Stop Control

 Consider the reconfiguration of the US Highway 67 approaches to provide
offset right-turn lanes

 Consider the reconfiguration of the US Highway 67 approaches to provide
left-turn lanes

5. The planning level opinion of probable construction costs for recommended


A. Replace/Relocate Existing Corridor Signing: $200 - $300 per sign
B. Removal of Existing Corridor Signing: $200 - $300 per sign
C. Install Additional Corridor Signing: $200 - $300 per sign
D. Pavement Markings: $0.50 per linear foot



A. Reconfigure intersection as single lane roundabout: $700,000 - $850,000
B. Reconfigure intersection as All-Way Stop Control: $5,000 - $10,000
C. Widen US Highway 67 to include offset right-turn lanes: $200,000 - $350,000
D. Widen US Highway 67 to include auxiliary left-turn lanes: $300,000 - $450,000

6. Potential funding sources include the Traffic Safety Improvement Program (TSIP), Urban-State Traffic Engineering Program (U-STEP), Surface Transportation Block Program – Swap (STBGP - Swap), Iowa Clean Air Attainment Program (ICAAP), and the local Road Use Tax Fund (RUTF).
