Based on public input, design solutions for State Street are emerging. Do you support transforming State Street into a “boulevard” without losing vehicular capacities, adding alternative modes of transportation and improving the pedestrian experience? Please review the Description, Topic Details, attached PDF and watch the video and cast your vote.
The Boulevard Approach
• Separate local and through movement vehicular traffic within multi-way boulevard applications therefore reducing vehicular friction and improving safety. The local lane will help slow traffic and encourage street frontage and walkable retail.
• Consolidate driveway entrances to improve pedestrian safety and reduce vehicular turning conflicts
• Improve pedestrian connectivity and safety by separating pedestrian corridors from high-speed traffic lanes with lower speed local lanes, on-street parking, boulevard park strips, consolidated driveway entrances and safety zones at crosswalks
• Reduce pedestrian crossing distances across State Street to improve pedestrian safety and improve traffic signal operations and timing
•Create a catalyst for economic development and growth by creating a more attractive street frontage for diversified land use and growth patterns
