New Challenges, Tools, and Opportunities in Planning for Healthy Transportation A New Generation ofSidewalk Profilers & GIS-based Planning Tools to Implement Infrastructure Improvements Sally Swanson Architects, Inc.

  27. 27. Challenge: Walkability › Driveability•  Growing emphasis on walkability o  New Urbanism o  Healthy Communities o  Livable Communities o  Complete Streets•  Requires vigilance on maintaining and upgrading our pedestrian infrastructure
  28. 28. Sidewalks can be hazardous to your health Aging population: 1 in 5 age 65 & over by 2025 o  Leading cause of death for 65 and over are falls o  Proactive vs. Reactive o  Paratransit services at capacitylists
  29. 29.  Traditional Devices for Testing Sidewalk Surfaces •  Using a Smart level or inclinometer is a laborious process •  The Ninth Circuit ruled that sidewalks Level Measurement Devices   are a program under the ADA •  Sampling and Extrapolating •  Addressing trip hazards through a maintenance program
  30. 30. Solution: Sidewalk Surface Profiling DevicesWalking Profiler Sidewalk Attributes Measured •  Ride Quality (Longitudinal Level) ◦  International Roughness Index ◦  Profile Ride Index ◦  Localized Roughness (bumps/ dips) •  Grade ◦  Running grade ◦  Maximum grade change (subject to ability to traverse surface) •  Cross-Slope
  31. 31. Inventory Sidewalks: Barriers/Hazards•  100% Sampling•  Surface Profiling System collects Surface Data – slopes, level changes, gaps, etc.•  Minimal Input by Operator Federal Highway Administration. Bellevue ADA Transition Plan implemented by Transportation Dept.

  34. 34. Managing Your Inventory Data Vs.
  35. 35. GIS-based Prioritization ToolsPrioritizing Barriers to Fit Your Budget•  Severity levels of barriers•  Demographics•  Location•  Frequency of use
  36. 36. ADA VIEWER- Activity Score
  37. 37. Browser-based GIS-viewerGIS data and GIS-viewer•  GIS: The raw GIS data allows •  GIS-Viewer: allows access to for in-depth organization and simplified version of data in an querying of the data. This is accessible and easy to use done with software such as format (Non-technical). Esri’s ArcGIS Software (Technical).
  38. 38. Browser-based GIS-viewer
  39. 39. ADA VIEWER- Curb Ramp & Pedestrian Signals
  40. 40. Reduce Trip and Fall HazardsProactive with Detailed Data•  Identify high severity barriers•  Reducing the potential for falls and accidents.•  Easily Update or check-off items when corrected
  41. 41. ADA VIEWER- Mid-blocks & Street view integration
  42. 42. Documentation •  Demonstrate good faith effort (reduces legal exposure) •  Address deficiencies in planning stage and not mid-project   •  Documentation of ‘improvements’ for litigation  
  43. 43. Case Study: City of Clovis, CAScope: 638 linear miles of sidewalkArea: 23 sq. milesPopulation: approx. 95,000Status: 2010-2012Solutions and Benefits: Court-mandated Timeline•  The City of Clovis, under a consent decree, was required to prepare a revised ADA Transition Plan to include its pedestrian facilities within public rights-of-way.•  The City evaluated its baseline condition for sidewalks and curb ramps. Using a profiler allowed the City to fast-track their project.
  44. 44. Case Study: City of San Marcos, CA Scope: 210 linear miles of sidewalk Area: 24.3 sq. miles Population: approx. 85,000 Status: Completed 2012Solutions and Benefits: Budget Savings and Planning Tool•  After evaluating several technologies, City chose a sidewalk profiling system sponsored by FHWA to develop a comprehensive inventory of sidewalks, curb ramps and other pedestrian infrastructure.•  Survey data was integrated into GIS for the City’s engineering department to use as a planning and scoping tool.
  45. 45. Case Study: County of St. Louis, MO Scope: 810 linear miles of sidewalk Area: 524 sq. miles Population: approx. 992,000 Status: 2011-2013 Solutions and Benefits: Large Inventory•  County staff were trained to perform field inventory of barriers using surface profilers and handheld data collectors•  This data is integrated into and analyzed in the County’s existing GIS to determine an overall implementation schedule
  46. 46. Cost Savings•  Scope a specific project area o  Sychronize with Capital Improvement Projects•  Reduce costs for paratransit services o  Identify and prioritize those sidewalks that connect paratransit riders to fixed route services•  Generate work orders o  Maintenance work orders - Trip and fall hazards - Tree trimming
  47. 47. Pooling Resources •  Barrier mitigation, planning and prioritization at the Metropolitan scale •  Savings together with Cities and Counties pooling resources to inventory barriers and maintaining GIS-based Planning tools

  66. 66. Guiding Principle: Key to Success = Station Density“The number one indicator of success is densityof stations. You dont want to have stations morethan a couple blocks away from each other. Inthe off-chance, hopefully, that someoneencounters a completely full or empty station,they dont have to walk far to a station that doeshave capacity or bicycles.”Alison Cohen, President, Alta Bike Share 73
