Our Goal

The Solterra Development in Mesquite, Texas is a 1,424 acre planned development that includes residential and mixed uses. The development is projected to have 3,900 single-family residential lots, a community amenity center, retail and restaurant uses on 9.4 acres and 603 acres of open space with an extensive trail system. LJA has been involved in all aspects of the development from the early planning stages including, roadway design, drainage analyses, community master planning, and continues to be involved as phases move to construction.

The LJA Roadmap

LJA’s transportation group has supported the overall development team by preparing the Preliminary Traffic Study for the development Master Plan and has been providing ongoing traffic support as the project has evolved. This includes support to the Land Development team by reviewing ADA compliance, roadway design, pavement markings and signage. The transportation group also prepared traffic signal plans for the two intersections on E Cartwright Road requiring modification to existing traffic signals and has provided ongoing construction phase services during the construction of the signals.
