Medians reconsidered for Valley Mills and Hewitt Drives


If you live in McLennan County, chances are you've driven on Valley Mills Drive, Hewitt Drive, or both.

That's why Waco area leaders want your input before considering changes to these two busy streets.

The Waco Metropolitan Planning Organization hired a firm to draft up plans that would make a number of changes to both drives.

Adding medians is something that many people have talked about for years.  The director of the Waco MPO, Chris Evilia, says, "We have also heard from some that there is a real concern about driving along these corridors.  Several folks do not feel safe, they feel that there's a lot of cross traffic and there's a lot of traffic violations also taking place."

Some people worry that medians would restrict access to their businesses.  All input will be collected and presented during a formal public hearing next month.
