UA Transportation Needs Assessment: This assessment provides strategies for mitigating congestion around and within the UA campus. The study is being finalized as of Spring 2008.
Comprehensive Campus Plan Transportation Report brings forward elements from the 1996 UA Circulation Study into the framework of the 2003 Comprehensive Campus Plan.
The 1996 UA Circulation Study (link to old study): was the first comprehensive plan for the UA's transporation system.
The project incorporated concerns of surrounding jurisdictions and neighborhoods as well as on-campus needs for parking, bicycle and pedestrian circulation,
among other things. While some elements of this plan have been superseded by more recent plans or policies, many of the concepts and proposals are still valid.
Second Street as it exists today is in many ways configured as a residential street (which it was originally) rather than an urban university
street with the associated dimensions and amenities suitable for the intensity and modes of transporation currently using it. In order to bring the
street into a configuration more compatible with not only its current context but to reflect its anticipated condition once the Modern Streetcar is
constructed on Second Street (from Park Ave. to Cherry Ave.), PDC is initiating a design study which will propose a new cross section of the street
incorporating urban streetscape elements such as appropriaite sidewalks, seating and lighting, transit stop amenities, street trees, accommodation of stormwater, etc.
Where is it?
Tyndall Avenue, from University Boulevard to Sixth Street, has been proposed as a demonstration site for an urban multi-modal
corridor redevelopment project. The project has advanced through several preliminary design and funding approval stages.
Sixth Street Urban Design: A planning study was conducted to generate guidelines for future redevelopment projects along Sixth Street, from Park Avenue to Campbell Avenue, as a pedestrian-friendly, multi-modal, urban streetscape. Following are several documents generated in the study
