  13. The Region Will Be Different in 2040 62% of new households will not have children 43% of regional residents will be non-white 50% of new households will be one income Senior population will more than double Sources: Met Council Regional Forecasts, 2012

  14. We Need Flexible Transportation • Growing population means growing demand on the transportation system • Changing demographics mean changing transportation needs • Area residents want more options • 40% suggest providing more transit • 20% suggest building better roads Sources: Met Council Residents Survey, 2007

  15. Metro Area Transportation system overview

  16. MnDOT/Met Council Partnership • A common vision & priorities: • Efficient use of limited resources • Preservation of existing system • Congestion management to preserve mobility • One multi-modal transportation system

  17. Implementing Our Shared Vision Together • MnPASS Lanes • I-394 • I-35W (UPA project) • Hiawatha LRT • Northstar Commuter Rail • Cedar Avenue BRT • Central Corridor LRT

  18. Major Regional Trends (1960-2009) Growing and more decentralized region Major increases in transportation demand Very large highway capacity expansion investments Modest transit capacity expansion investments

  19. Traffic Congestion is Growing • Total annual delay = 78.5 million hours • 2011 a.m. Congestion Sources: Texas Transportation Institute, 2011 Mobility Report 2011 MnDOT Congestion Report

  20. Traffic Congestion is Growing • Annual delay per peak commuter = 45 hours • 2011 p.m. Congestion Sources: Texas Transportation Institute, 2011 Mobility Report 2011 MnDOT Congestion Report

  21. We Have Significant Challenges to Regional Mobility • Aging system – need for preservation • Growing highway congestion • Over $40 B required to “solve congestion” • Challenging transportation finances

  22. Improving Mobility A new policy direction • A realistic, innovative, flexible, sustainable and problem-focused investment direction: • Preserve, manage and optimize existing highway system • Focus on managing traffic congestion • Promote alternatives to driving alone

  23. Improving Mobility Managing Congestion • MnDOT is a national leader in innovative congestion management solutions • 300 miles of bus-only shoulders • Successful lower-cost/ high-benefit projects • I-394, 35W MnPASS (priced) lanes

  24. Improving Mobility Future Congestion Management Use Active Traffic Management (ATM) Construct lower-cost/high-benefit projects Expand system of managed (priced) lanes Strategically expand capacity

  25. Improving Mobility Future Congestion Management Optimize highway investments to move largest number of people, not cars Invest in transit Encourage alternatives to driving alone Promote transportation-efficient land use

  26. Vision Beyond the Fiscally Constrained Plan • Highway Vision creates a $4+ billion “reservoir of projects” • Managed Lane Vision $1.5 B • Lower-Cost/High-Benefit Projects $1-$1.5 B • ATM Improvements $500 M • Strategic Capacity Enhancements likely exceed $1 B

  27. Improving MobilityOptimizing freight • “A safe, efficient, high-capacity freight transportation system is essential to the economic well being of the region and the state” (Council Policy Plan) • Primary metro freight issues: • Freight congestion on highways and railroads • Volatile fuel costs • Freight safety and security • Aging infrastructure

  28. Improving Mobility Promoting Alternatives: Bikes and Peds • Bicycling shows promise as option for short trips • Bicycling rate is up, yet barriers still exist • Good pedestrian environment essential to transit success • Accessibility for persons with disabilities

  29. Improving MobilityLocal + Regional Bike & Ped Systems • Recommendations • Connections to transit • Removal of barriers • Safety improvements • Bike/pedestrian accommodationson roadways

  30. Improving MobilityAviation System • MSP International • 33.1 million passengers • 436,000 take-offs and landings • 135 non-stop markets served • 127 gates • 3.2 million sq ft of terminal space • Reliever Airports • St. Paul Downtown • Anoka Co-Blaine • Flying Cloud • Crystal • South St. Paul • Airlake • Lake Elmo Sources: Metropolitan Airports Commission
