Project Abstract

This project was decided on with the following goal in mind: to improve the overall travel experience through the corridor for all modes of transportation including pedestrians, automobiles, public transit, and bicyclists. This was achieved by analyzing the current state of the corridor through data collection, user surveys, and traffic simulation. This information was then used to aid in coming up with a set of improvement plans to present to the City for possible implementation. This list of improvements includes lane removals/additions, signal timing optimization (using the traffic simulation programs), signal relocations, pedestrian cross walk markings, and the addition of bike lanes.´╗┐
