Background and Discussion:
Traffic Signal - Atascocita Rd at Blackstone Trails Dr. is a project to enhance traffic movements at the existing intersection. The service outlet location statement is needed to establish electrical service from CenterPoint Energy to power the traffic signal.

Expected Impact:
Approval of the service outlet location statement will allow CenterPoint Energy to provide electrical service to the traffic signal, which is needed to enhance the public safety and operation of the intersection of Atascocita Rd at Blackstone Trails Dr.

Alternative Options:
All Traffic Signals require a power source, which is typically obtained through CenterPoint Energy. Alternative options are to place a generator, which is not reliable, or not install the traffic signal at the intersection. Both options pose a public safety concern and will impact the operation and increase delay of the intersection.
