Rancho Sereno Butterfield Traffic Calming Study

City Councilor Cynthia D. Borrego has funded studying multiple streets in the Rancho Sereno, Las Terrezas neighborhoods in response to numerous reports of consistent speeding in the area.

Background

Lee Engineering has been contracted to review multiple streets in the Rancho Sereno, Las Terrezas neighborhoods in response to numerous reports of consistent speeding in the area.  The study particularly focuses on internal circulation streets along which no houses are located.  It targets traffic calming options for:

  • Rancho Milagro Rd from Rancho Sereno Rd to Eagle Ranch Rd
  • Rancho Sereno Rd from Calle Norteña to Paseo Del Norte
  • La Terrazas St from Golf Course Rd to Rancho Sereno Rd
  • Butterfield Trail from Golf Course Rd to Calle Norteña
  • Calle Norteña from Golf Course Rd to Butterfield Trail

Traffic calming studies and recommendations are typically funded and completed through the City’s Neighborhood Traffic Management Program (NTMP).  These neighborhood streets, however, do not qualify for the program as they do not meet the ‘street fronting residence’ NTMP criteria.  In order to address constituent’s concerns for speeding in these neighborhoods, funding the Butterfield, Rancho Sereno, Las Terrazas Speed Study at a cost of $44,482 from District 5 GO Bond set-aside funds. 

Butterfield, Rancho Sereno, Las Terrazas Speed Study, otherwise follows the NTMP process and considers the same traffic calming options and tools offered by the NTMP.  A public virtual meeting to discuss the study and some calming proposals for the area is scheduled to occur this Tuesday, September 28th, at 6:00p.m. viewable at www.cabq.gov/traffic.  Please submit questions and comments to Diane Dolan, Council Special Projects Analyst at [email protected] prior to the meeting.
