SR-710 Environmental Study

  1. 1. SR-710 Environmental StudyAll Communities Convening – March 1 and 3, 2012
  2. 2. Presentation Agenda> Welcome/Introductions and Purpose> Overview of Process/Opportunities for Public Participation> Environmental Review Process> Open House Stations Review> Adjourn to Open House
  3. 3. All Communities Convening> Convenes study area communities together> Open House Purpose > Share information > Learn about the process > Gather comments> Open House Process
  4. 4. Notification Activities> E-Blasts> Mailing> Drop off in El Sereno Community> Announcements at meetings> Facebook Posts and Online Ads> Media coverage (print and blogs)> Libraries
  5. 5. Multiple venues for participation> All Communities Convening> Community Liaison Councils> Stakeholder Outreach Advisory Committee> Variety of participation opportunities: > Roundtables > Workshops > Focus Groups > Virtual meetings > Open Houses
  6. 6. Public Participation –Environmental Review Process We are here
  7. 7. Project Background> Two-thirds of LA County voters approve using Measure R funds to address congestion> Unresolved SR-710 option contributes to growing congestion on nearby freeways and streets
  8. 8. Environmental Review ProcessOverview
  9. 9. Robust project scoping completed> March 2011 – Notice of Intent and Notice of Preparation were published> March 2011 – Agency scoping meeting was held> March/April, 2011 – Eight (8) public scoping meetings were held at various locations within the project study area> March 2011 – A virtual scoping meeting was held> September 2011 – Scoping Summary Report completed
  10. 10. What we heard during Scoping> Keep all modal options on the table: > Traffic Systems Management/Traffic Demand Management low build > Surface, subsurface and elevated structures > Transit (bus and rail options) > Street improvements > Freight management systems > Supporting advanced technologies > No build
  11. 11. More on what we heard> Consider the following issues: > Traffic > Natural > Engineering > Archeological > Social > Health > Aesthetic > Air Quality > Economic > Noise > Cultural > Environmental Justice
  12. 12. More on what we heard> Define project need and study area> Consider local and regional planning impacts> Conduct cost/benefit analyses> Continue public participation
  13. 13. Post Scoping - Initial Study Area
  14. 14. Alternatives Analysis (AA)> Next step in the environmental review process> Evaluate a full range of multi-modal alternatives to address the problem> Collect data and conduct engineering and other environmental and technical assessments> Consider public comments
  15. 15. Alternatives Analysis Process
  16. 16. Study Decision-Making Metro,Study Team Stakeholders Caltrans & Federal Agencies Study & Inform & Input Decide Recommend Advise
  17. 17. Four Elements of Need Regional transportation system Area of Influence (north-south mobility) Freeway system efficiency Congestion on local Study Area streets Transit system efficiency
  18. 18. Regional Transportation System> Regional travel speeds are low> Delay is high> Travel times are unpredictable
  19. 19. Freeway System> Over-capacity north-south travel demands affects mobility> High delays and unpredictable travel times on study area freeways> High accident rates on freeways
  20. 20. Local Street System> Affected by excess freeway traffic> Operates at low speeds> Out-of-place freeway trips cause high levels of congestion
  21. 21. Transit System> Operational deficiencies> Low travel speeds for buses> North-south transit network is constrained
  22. 22. Next Steps> Develop, analyze and screen initial alternatives> Continue conceptual engineering and technical analyses> Recommend final set of alternatives – Fall 2012> Continue public participation
