  1. SOUTH FLORIDA EAST COAST CORRIDORTRANSIT ANALYSIS STUDY Municipal MeetingsSeptember 2006

  2. N. Jasmine Yacinthe, Ph.D. Gannett Fleming, Inc.

  3. SFECC Transit Analysis Study • Tiered Alternatives Analysis/EIS • Study Area Centered on FEC • Two Miles Wide • Approximately 85 Miles Long • Focus on North-South Mobility • Multiple, Parallel N-S Alignments • FEC, SFRC, US1, I-95 • Consolidates Multiple Past Studies • Tri-Rail Jupiter Extension • Miami-Dade Northeast Corridor • Broward County Transit Improvements

  4. Tiered Alternatives Analysis/EIS Process Tier 1 Regional Analysis Many Alternatives Qualitative Screening Define Tier 2 Study Segments September 2005 to April 2007 Regional Record of Decision April 2007 Few Alternatives Quantitative Screening Systems to Implement Tier 2 Sectional Analysis 2007 to 2009+ Sectional Records of Decision

  5. Florida East Coast Railway • 100-Foot Corridor through Three Counties • Presently One or Two Main Line Tracks • 203 At-Grade Highway Grade Crossings • Infrastructure Matched to Current Operations • Presently 26 Freight Trains per Day • Capacity for Passenger Trains Very Limited • Strategies to Increase Capacity • Add Main Line Tracks • Reduce Marine Conflicts • Elevate Key Water Crossings • Ameliorate Grade Crossings • “Quiet” Crossings through Whistle Bans • Consider Crossing Consolidations • Grade Separate Key Highway Crossings

  6. SFECC Alignments PROSPECTIVE ALIGNMENTS Railroad Alignments • Florida East Coast Railway • South Florida Railroad Corridor(CSXT, Tri-Rail, Amtrak) Highway Alignments • US-1 • Interstate 95 Others • Intra-Coastal Waterway • Power Utility Rights of Way • Canals

  9. SFECC Preliminary Alternatives

  10. Miami-Dade/South Broward County Station Areas

  11. Tier 1 Conclusions • Eliminate US1 Alternatives • More Costly & Less Ridership Than FEC Alternatives • Eliminate I-95 Rail Alternatives • Expense Disproportional to Ridership • Retain Regional Bus Alternative • Terminate Alternatives in Jupiter • Tequesta Service Requires New High-Level Crossing of the Loxahatchee • Martin County Park-Ride Traffic Handled Better at PGA Blvd Station

  12. SFECC (Phase 1) Project Schedule Public Kickoff / Scoping (3) Advance Notification Public Hearings (3) Public Workshop #2 (5) Municipal Meetings Public Workshop #1 (5) Regional ROD Submit Final PEIS Alternatives Development Regional Travel Survey Data Collection Submit Draft PEIS MPO, SFRTA Endorsement Freight Integration Analysis Existing Freight Analysis Elected/Agency Kick-Off (3) Municipal Workshop Advance Notification Review

  13. Adopt Resolutions of Support in Favor of the Project. Identify Your General Issues and Concerns. Address Regional Transit System vs. Local Challenges. Help Identify Corridor Subsections (Logical Project Limits). Help Prioritize Corridor Sections (Implementation). Provide Input on Tier 1 Alternatives (Screen Out Non-Viable Options) Encourage TOD* and TSLU** at Stations Sites (Zoning) Identify Financing & Funding Partners (City, County, Others) Transportation Decisions by MPOs Land Use Decisions by Counties & Cities How Can Municipalities Help? *TOD – Transit-Oriented Development ** TSLU – Transit Supportive Land Uses
