Sindiong Project Examples.2

  1. 1. STEVE SINDIONG – PROJECT EXAMPLE   Auburn Transportation Plan (Auburn, WA) – Steve managed  the Auburn Transportation Plan, which was updated as a result of two recent annexations to the City. As part of this effort, he oversaw the inventorying of pedestrian and bicycle facilities within the annexation areas, using GIS technology. He also led a public outreach process that was used to identify transportation issues and needs, including non-motorized needs. Steve oversaw the identification of roadway and other transportation needs based on future (2030) population and land use projections, and Synchro traffic modeling analysis, identified transportation solutions to meet the future needs, and oversaw the preparation of planning level cost estimates for proposed projects.
  2. 2. STEVE SINDIONG – PROJECT EXAMPLE   Lynnwood Non-Motorized Skeleton System Plan (Lynnwood, WA) – Steve managed   this study that developed a pedestrian and bicycle system to serve schools, parks, transit and other major activity centers within Lynnwood, and provide connectivity to systems in adjacent communities. A “skeleton system” for both pedestrians and bicycles was developed based upon a review of the systems using established evaluation criteria. GIS was used to help evaluate and prioritize system segments. Planning level cost estimates were prepared for all of the skeleton system segments and a priority list of projects was identified based on the evaluation and other data.
  3. 3. STEVE SINDIONG – PROJECT EXAMPLES     SE Redmond Area Transportation Study (Redmond, WA) – Steve was the lead planner for this study that examined long-term transportation needs for the southeast part of Redmond, WA, one of the fastest growing areas of the City. Steve had a significant role in planning and facilitating public outreach, evaluating existing conditions, identifying multi-modal transportation needs, developing project concepts and evaluating projects. As part of the analysis, Steve identified existing and planned pedestrian facilities within the congested area of SR 520 near Redmond Way, and made recommendations for future pedestrian facilities, as shown above, to improve connectivity across Redmond Way, and between downtown Redmond and southeast Redmond, as well as to the future planned light rail station and park & ride facility adjacent to SR 520.
  4. 4. STEVE SINDIONG – PROJECT EXAMPLE A new north-south non-motorized facility could connect Channelization improvements on all legs and dual turn lanes to the to the future office area north of Richards Road and the I-90 Onramp are recommended at the intersection of 150th Ave SE at Mountains to Sound Greenway and other uses south of SE 37th Street. I-90.   Eastgate Preliminary Screening Analysis (Bellevue, WA) – A number of significant changes have occurred in the Eastgate area since completion of the Eastgate/I-90 Corridor Study in 2003, including construction of the Eastgate Park-and-Ride expansion, direct access ramps to 142nd Place SE, expansion of Bellevue College, new commercial and office development, and transit service revisions. The Eastgate/ I-90 Corridor Study had a planning horizon of 2020. The City plans to conduct an Eastgate Mixed-Use Employment Center Study that will examine land use, transportation, urban design, and annexation issues and make recommendations for land use / zoning changes and multi-modal transportation improvements. The study will have a 2030 planning horizon, and is anticipated to begin in early 2010. The City will be considering annexation of a large unincorporated residential area south of I-90 on a parallel timetable. Steve managed a preliminary screening analysis that was needed prior to the Employment Center Study to determine whether additional land uses, and of what magnitude, would be feasible in the Eastgate area. The study conducted traffic operations analysis (using Synchro) to analyze the traffic operations at area intersections, for two land use alternatives, for the AM and PM peak periods. Potential optimization strategies were identified for the intersections based on the analysis. In addition, transit and non-motorized strategies were explored, and order of magnitude costs were prepared for those improvements identified as feasible solutions. Steve prepared the above graphics to easily convey to staff some of the proposed solutions.
  5. 5. STEVE SINDIONG – PROJECT EXAMPLE Tukwila Bicycle Friendly Routes and Missing Sidewalks Segments Report (Tukwila, WA) – Steve managed this project that made recommendations for nearly 40 high priority corridors within the City of Tukwila, WA. This first stage of the project included the preparation of an improvement options report, which identified existing conditions, key issues and constraints, overall context, and alternatives for the pedestrian and bicycle improvements. Upon review by the City, and selection of a preferred solution, a design report was prepared which included the preliminary design for each corridor using CAD overlaid on aerials, the proposed cross-section, project description and order of magnitude costs. Steve also prepared an evaluation of all corridors based on selected criteria, to identify projects that should be implemented first. Steve prepared a number of graphics, including the above graphic, to convey various types of improvements that could be implemented.
  6. 6. STEVE SINDIONG – PROJECT EXAMPLE Evergreen Way Corridor Revitalization Plan (Everett, WA) – Steve evaluated each of the SWIFT bus rapid transit station areas to determine existing major activity centers, land uses and pedestrian facilities. In general, commuters are highly likely to walk within a ¼ mile distance to transit stops, and a ½ mile distance to high capacity transit, such as BRT. These walking distances were overlaid with the stations and land uses and pedestrian facilities to determine gaps or barriers for pedestrians. In addition, potential new pedestrian connections were identified between activity centers and higher density residential areas to streets served by transit, where none exist today, or where pedestrians are required to walk long distances. These pedestrian connections could be in the form multi-use trails through easements, or conditioned to new development.
