Sindiong Project Examples

  1. 1. STEVE SINDIONG, AICP Steve has worked as an urban and transportation planner for over 20 years, including eight years as a senior planner for the City of Bellevue (Washington) Transportation Department, and 12 years in consulting. He holds a Master’s Degree in Urban Planning with a certificate of Urban Design, and his work has focused on managing and conducting corridor, subarea, comprehensive, non-motorized and transit planning, traffic impact assessments, and transit- oriented development analysis. His work focuses on the evaluation of existing conditions, development of near and long-term solutions or alternatives, alternatives evaluation, and project recommendations. His urban design skills allow him to develop creative, “out of the box” solutions supported by conceptual site plans and schematics. He has managed large projects that required coordination with team members and sub-consultants. His use of Project Delivery Systems, project team chartering and QA/QC have earned him a reputation for delivering high quality projects on schedule and within budget. Steve has served on the City of Seattle’s Southeast Design Review Board, the Seattle Citywide Neighborhood Council (CNC), and currently serves (and formerly co-chaired) on the Southwest Seattle District Council. A representative list of projects that Steve has managed or led include the following: Corridor / Subarea / Transportation Planning  Bel-Red Infrastructure Phasing Study - Bellevue, WA  Eastgate Preliminary Screening Alternatives Analysis - Bellevue, WA th  148 Avenue Mobility Improvement Package - Bellevue, WA  BROTS North-South Corridor Study - Bellevue, WA  Meydenbauer Bay Park Master Plan EIS (Transportation Element) – Bellevue, WA  Everett Riverfront Development EIS (Transportation Element) – Everett, WA  SE Redmond Area Transportation Study – Redmond, WA th  NE 10 Street Overcrossing / Overlake Hospital Master Plan EIS – Bellevue, WA  Port Orchard Transportation Plan – Port Orchard, WA  East Thea Foss Waterway Transportation Corridor Study – Tacoma, WA  Auburn Transportation Plan Update – Auburn, WA  SR 164 and SR 169 Route Development Plans – WSDOT  King County International Airport, Multidisciplinary Engineering and Planning Services – King Co, WA Transit Planning  Eight Mile Road Public Transportation Boarding Facilities Study - Detroit, MI  Stevens County Transit Feasibility Study – Stevens County, WA  Grand Rapids Multi-Modal Center – Grand Rapids, MI  Detroit-Ann Arbor High Capacity Transit Analysis - MI  Bellevue Multi-Modal Transportation Center Study – Bellevue, WA  Bellevue Transit Center project – Bellevue, WA  Eastgate Park & Ride Garage – Bellevue, WA  Bellevue Downtown Circulator Implementation Plan – Bellevue, WA  Express Transit Center Site Feasibility Study / Design – St. Joseph, MO Non-Motorized Planning  Tukwila Bicycle Friendly Routes and Missing Sidewalks Preliminary Design  Bicycle, Pedestrian and Transit Linkages Study - Tulsa, OK  Lynnwood Non-motorized Skeleton System Plan – Lynnwood, WA  Bellevue Pedestrian / Bicycle Transportation Plan – Bellevue, WA
  2. 2. STEVE SINDIONG – PROJECT EXAMPLE   SE Redmond Pedestrian Spine (Redmond, WA) – Steve developed a concept for a “pedestrian spine” for the City of Redmond, as part of the SE Redmond Area Transportation Study. The pedestrian spine provides an improved linkage between the Bear Creek Park and Ride lot, southeast Redmond commercial area and the future light rail station west of Redmond Way. The pedestrian spine would be an attractive and convenient corridor focused on pedestrian activity, and include wide sidewalks, landscaping, lighting, street furniture, bicycle amenities, wayfinding and direct connections to adjacent land uses. The corridor could either be combined with vehicular traffic, or separated from traffic. The development of this type of corridor could benefit from zoning changes and development regulations to adjacent land that would allow greater building densities, mixed uses, and reduced setbacks to encourage pedestrian oriented uses and activities. A transportation grid could be developed within the larger southeast Redmond commercial area, connected to the pedestrian spine, to provide convenient linkages. It is assumed that infill development would need to occur over a phased period in order to maintain parking needs for commercial uses. To provide safe and convenient access to the future light rail station, a grade separated facility over Redmond Way is recommended.  
  3. 3. STEVE SINDIONG – PROJECT EXAMPLE     Example  of  a  Pedestrian  Bridge  in  Cincinnati,  Ohio     East Thea Foss Waterway Transportation Corridor Study (Tacoma, WA) – As part of this study, Steve analyzed several options for connectivity to the Murray Morgan Bridge (a deteriorated structure) between downtown Tacoma and the Thea Foss Peninsula. Options included closing the bridge, rebuilding the bridge for vehicles, and maintaining the bridge for non-motorized use only. The illustration prepared by Steve shows a conceptual design for a non-motorized bridge, with trail connections to the shoreline esplanade, adjacent roads on the peninsula, and a trailhead that would include bike lockers, restrooms, bicycle parking, public art, wayfinding and an information kiosk and seating.      
  4. 4. STEVE SINDIONG – PROJECT EXAMPLE   East Thea Foss Waterway Transportation Corridor Study (Tacoma, WA) – Steve managed this study that was to analyze and develop a transitional transportation corridor system to improve access, circulation, and functional separation between industrial and commercial/ tourist, as necessary, for the protection and enhancement of existing businesses and to facilitate new economic opportunities in the study area. Traffic access and circulation concepts/projects were developed for two long-term (year 2025) development scenarios (No Murray Morgan Bridge / No SR 509 slip ramps; Operational Murray Morgan Bridge / SR 509 slip ramps). Steve prepared a number of circulation concepts for each scenario, including the above concept that includes a new road between E 15th Street and the Murray Morgan Bridge. A preliminary design and planning level cost estimates were prepared for the recommended solutions.
  5. 5. STEVE SINDIONG – PROJECT EXAMPLE                         Bellevue Downtown Circulator Implementation Plan (Bellevue, WA) – Steve managed this study for the City of Bellevue, that included a technical evaluation of a near term downtown Bellevue circulator transit service. The study included an evaluation of various circulator concepts and implementation approach. Steve identified several circulator options to serve major activity centers within downtown Bellevue, the Bellevue Transit Center, and also examined options that would serve Overlake Medical Center. Steve prepared the above graphic to show how a circulator could be easily conveyed to the public. The City of Bellevue has begun discussions with King County Metro to implement the circulator service, which would be partially funded through the King County “Transit Now” Initiative.
