Presentation Transcript

  1. Row River Trail Corridor Plan • Corridor Plan and Meeting Objective • Project Background • Short Term Improvements • Long Term Improvements/Corridor Planning • Construction Funding Opportunities • Milepost 4.0 • Why Corridor Planning • Other intersections/observations • Questions/comments • Breakout Sessions and Dot Exercise

  2. Corridor Plan and Meeting Objective

  3. Layng Road Short term improvements – began by looking at what would be installed immediately to improve safety

  4. Row River Road MP 4.0 Short term Intersection Improvements at Row River Road MP 4

  5. Row River Road MP 5.8 • Short term intersection improvements at Row River Road MP 5.8

  6. Row River Road MP 5.8 • Short term Intersection Improvements at Row River Road MP 5.8 included grading and vegetation removal to increase sight distance for trail users.

  7. Row River Road MP 11 • Short term Intersection Improvements at Row River Road MP 11.0

  8. Row River Trail Long Term Improvements - Corridor plan

  9. Funding Opportunities for Construction Improvements • Construction grant cycles have started: • Transportation Enhancement (TE) – pre-application due past spring; application due 12/14 • State Transportation Improvement Program – deadline was 11/27/2012 for application • Federal Lands Access Program (FLAP) Pre-application due 12/13/2012; application due 1/25/13 • Will continue to seek opportunities

  10. Row River Road MP 4.0

  11. Engineering 101 • How do we address intersection safety? • Educate • Enforce • Engineer - engineering options based on yielding • Urban areas of trail –bicyclists/pedestrians have right-0f-way - motorists must yield to bicyclists/pedestrians.

  12. Engineering Alternatives • Engineering options based on yielding • Rural areas of trail - motorist has right-of-way. Bicyclists/pedestrians must yield to motorists

  13. Separated Grade Crossing • Completely separates motor vehicles and pedestrians/bicyclists • Safest option for all users • Most expensive option

  14. At Grade alternative: PHB • Pedestrian Hybrid Beacon (PHB) • Changes the yielding relationship – pedestrian/bicycle users push the beacon to stop traffic

  15. Overcrossing – Option 1

  16. Undercrossing – Option 2

  17. Undercrossing - Option 3

  18. Pedestrian Hybrid Beacon – Option 4

  19. We want to hear from you • What option do you favor best and least? • Overcrossing – Option 1 • Undercrossing - Option 2 (aligned with trail) • Undercrossing – Option 3(angled from trail; shorter tunnel) • At grade crossing (with PHB) – Option 4 • Do nothing – no further improvements

  20. Corridor Planning • Opportunity to evaluate entire trail

  21. Layng Road Crossing

  22. Row River Road MP 5.8

  23. Row River Road MP 11.0

  24. Next Steps for Project

  25. Next Steps for Today • Please provide your feedback about design alternative for MP 4.0 • Indicate most and least favored with dots • Please provide your feedback about any other issues along the trail • Make notes on large maps and intersection maps • Fill out comment cards • Talk with staff

  26. Questions/Comments?
