  • Hello, my name is Erin Miller. I am the Project Manager for EN TRIPS, and I have been with Sustainable Streets since October of last year.My brief presentation will be to provide a context for this project. This is a summary “timeline” of the project to this evening.Summer 2009 &gt; Project Initiated2009 – late 2010 &gt; Technical Analyses with Task Force participationLate 2010 &gt;Updates to EN CAC &amp; to prepare for community-wide outreachToday &gt; Community-wide meeting
  • You will hear us referring to the Study Area often. It’s important to take a moment to understand the scale of this Study Area, which is about 3,500 acres.Steve explained that it includes the Eastern neighborhoods, as well as Mission Bay, Western SoMa, Rincon, Transbay, as well as parts of the Central Freeway Octavia Plan and Better Market Street Plan (underway)It will help to keep this image in mind when we talk about streets and street segments, because whatever changes that happen on one will impact how other streets in the area are working.I like to help myself understand it with numbers: 151,350,675 s.f. = 3,500 acres OR ~138,000 2 bedroom homes.
  • Corridor Analysis and concept design (Today)Evaluating circulation within the entire area;Focusing on Key Corridors of concern;Prioritizing focused corridor segments; andDeveloping conceptual transportation and street design alternatives.
  • Such as these
  • Corridor Analysis and concept design
  • This slide illustrates a summary of improvements that have been implemented or are on-going with in the Study Area, and represent the types of projects that can be identified through EN TRIPS.
  • The main portion of tonight’s presentation will be by Bonnie Nelson, of our Consultant Team Nelson\\Nygaard. After the presentation, we will stand up to spend about an hour looking in detail at some of preliminary recommendations that have emerged through our analysis. We want your feedback to help us “ground truth” our assumptions as we move forward.Bonnie..
  • .
  • Study team did detailed traffic analysis in SOMA circulation study area.Preliminary corridor screening evaluation – more later in presentation.
  • Bayshore (including Bayview and Hunters Point), Downtown, South Bay and East Bay are major areas of growing demand to and from the Study Area.Within study area, SOMA will see the greatest growth and Central Waterfront will see a very large increase in trips on a percentage basis.
  • Forecast congestion will impact transit.Transit priority treatments can speed up buses, allow muni to provide more capacity with same resources.
  • Bike lanes planned for 2nd and 5th in SOMA; 17th , 26th, and Cesar Chavez in Mission, 16th and 3rd in Central Waterfront.Lanes recently completed on Division and Townsend. Vital Folsom-Howard bike corridor will be challenged by high vehicle volumes.
  • Map illustrates ped collisions 2004 to 2008.Also includes freeway touchdowns as an example of ped barriers. Not concentration of freeway exits in SOMA.
  • Ped Injury/Bicycle Collisions per mile for N-S SOMA Arterial segments
  • Ped Injury/Bicycle Collisions per mile for N-S SOMA Arterial segments
  • Process for preliminary corridor needs assessment:For each corridor segment, score need by mode. Assess outliers.Of the ‘high need’ corridor segments, identify opportunities for a design project.Assess which corridors fall in high growth areas.Assess which corridors are otherwise dealt with through other City plans and projects.
