Transportation 2050 will provide an estimated $240 million for new and expanded major streets projects, to help connect and complete the city's roadway network. The Proposition 104 ballot language related to the Transportation 2050 plan included a map that depicts proposed corridors for New and Expanded Major Streets improvements and maintenance efforts.
Street Transportation Department staff, in close coordination with the Citizens Transportation Commission, the Mayor and City Council, have prioritized major street improvement projects to most effectively utilize available Transportation 2050 funding, while supporting multi-modal connectivity goals.
Criteria used to evaluate roadway project corridors to determine which corridors went through the project assessment phase are listed below:
Existing corridor roadway and transit service, number of connecting or intersecting transit routes;
Proposed transit service expansion timing;
Consideration of crash history; and
If the corridor is part of an elected body approved transportation plan, designated to be of prime importance within the Village Core, part of a Community Economic Development focus area, or part of a Neighborhood Services Initiative Area.
Based on the above criteria, it was recommended the following corridors move forward to the Project Assessment phase. Rank Ordered Corridors
