Transportation Study (2006)

Status

The Transportation Study was presented to the City Council in 2006.

Purpose

The Transportation Study involves the development of a new travel demand model that can provide sufficient additional detail to accurately forecast future traffic demand outside the current urban fringe, provide the opportunity to model alternative modes of travel such as buses, commuter trains, bicycling, and walking, and integrate with the City’s GIS. The model results can be used to evaluate the need for new transportation corridors, provide background traffic growth forecasts for development impact analysis, prioritize roadway capital improvement projects, and integrate alternative modes into the system.
