Transportation Highlights


Published on

This presentation is designed to provide a more detailed look at the transportation investments envisioned for each scenario. It also includes some analysis and information presented at the citywide transportation workshop. This is intended to provide more detailed information, and isn’t necessary to complete the survey.”

Transportation Highlights

  1. 1. Scenario Transportation Highlights
  2. 2. This slideshow highlights the range of transportation alternatives and outcomes for each of the four PLANiTulsa scenarios Comparing the Scenarios
  3. 3. How the Scenarios Compare Tulsa’s transportation investments go almost entirely to roads New Road Investments New Transit Investments
  4. 4. 31,000 Daily Transit Trips <ul><li>1% Transit share in ridership </li></ul><ul><li>Limited regional transit in Tulsa area </li></ul><ul><li>Trend ridership for 2030: </li></ul>Scenario A
  5. 5. How the Scenarios Compare About 41% of transportation investments are devoted to transit New Road Investments New Transit Investments
  6. 6. Scenario B
  7. 7. How the Scenarios Compare About 41% of transportation investments are devoted to transit New Road Investments New Transit Investments
  8. 8. Scenario C
  9. 9. How the Scenarios Compare Most transportation investments are devoted to transit New Road Investments New Transit Investments
  10. 10. Scenario D
  11. 11. How the Scenarios Compare Investment priorities will have a have a big impact on how Tulsans get around
  12. 12. How the Scenarios Compare Each scenario also has a big impact on how much time Tulsans will spend in the car
  13. 13. Transportation New Lane-Miles of Road Constructed Scenario A would result in more total lane miles than the others.
  14. 14. Transportation Lane Miles of New Road Per 1,000 New Residents On per-capita basis, Scenario A would require more new roads for fewer new residents.
  15. 15. Transportation Per Capita Vehicle Miles Traveled (City) Scenarios B, C, and D would result in Tulsans driving fewer miles than Scenario A.
  16. 16. Transportation Gallons of Fuel Wasted Annually Due to Congestion Scenarios B and D would result in the least amount of fuel wasted due to traffic congestion
  17. 17. Transportation Citywide Value of Time Lost Due to Congestion (Annually, in millions) Scenarios B and D would result in the least amount of lost time due to traffic congestion.

  34. 34. Street Level Urban Redesign <ul><li>A redesign can do many things to improve the function, appearance and safety of a roadway. It can be accomplished by: </li></ul><ul><ul><li>- Removing lanes from a multi-lane roadway </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>- 4 lane to 3 lane conversions </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>- Create parking and/or bike lanes out of existing lanes </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>- Widening sidewalks to encourage pedestrian activity </li></ul></ul>Potential Transportation Tools
  35. 35. Four-Lane Undivided Roadway Conversion to a Three-Lane Cross Section are viable for roadways with a maximum ADT of 16,000. They have been accomplished up to 24,000 ADT. Street-scale Urban Redesign

  40. 40. Rapid Transit Technologies Bus Rapid Transit has the unique ability to function in either an exclusive right-of-way or in mixed traffic, however, the most common application assumes an exclusive right-of-way for operational efficiency and safety.
