About the Project
Analyze the existing street network including mobility, transit, and active transportation networks (people walking and riding bicycles), using existing and future land use plans/development and the approved existing street classification map. Identify any gaps in these networks and recommend street, transit, and active transportation facilities and target years for construction based on projected transportation growth and land use in the area. The study recommendations will be consistent with the Road Safety Action Plan Vision Zero efforts, the Active Transportation Plan, and will facilitate future transit oriented development.
Goals of the Project
Provide guidance on future street, zoning, and policy needs that will help create responsible land use, safe streets, and vibrant neighborhoods.
Study will officially kick off in July 2022 and be completed in June 2023.
This study will inform the development and implementation of community and neighborhood transportation goals by identifying transportation facility and service improvements that enhance neighborhood character and safety by:
- Providing a system that supports equitable and safe facilities for all users and transportation modes.
- Comparing future roadway connectivity and capacity needs to existing roadway conditions and recommending safe, multimodal projects that enhance connectivity and neighborhood character.
- Recommending sensible roadway widths, policies, projects, and procedures including preservation of the necessary rights-of-way to deliver properly-scaled land use planning and infrastructure enhancements.
- Identifying ways to connect bicycle and pedestrian facilities safely and conveniently to existing and planned facilities in neighboring jurisdictions.
- Identifying opportunities to enhance bicycle and pedestrian connectivity across Loop 101 by providing safe on-street and above grade improvements that connect neighborhoods.
- Developing planning-level cost estimates and delivery timeframes into programming considerations for recommendation of short-, mid-, and long-term capital improvements.
