ABOUT THE PROJECT
The Humboldt County Association of Governments HCAOG, the City of Eureka, and the California Department of Transportation, District 1 are developing a corridor plan to address safety and multimodal transportation on the most highly traveled corridor in the City of Eureka, the 101-Broadway corridor. The plan will provide solutions to improve multimodal choices for residents, commuters, and visitors that will promote safety and connectivity for active transportation users, address public transit concerns and reduce congestion within the Broadway corridor.
The Project’s final product will result in a performance-based comprehensive corridor plan that will identify a multimodal package of improvements to compete for a variety of competitive grant funding opportunities related to active transportation, safety, and operations. These include: California’s Active Transportation Program (ATP), the Highway Safety Improvement Program (HSIP), California’s Solutions for Congested Corridors Program, the State Highway Operation and Protection Program, as well as other applicable funding programs.
Key aspects of the plan will be to:
• Economic Development and Job Creation and Retention
• Air Quality and Greenhouse Gas Emissions Reduction
• Water quality / Stormwater runoff treatment
• Efficient Land Use
The plan is expected to achieve a balanced set of multimodal-transportation, environmental, and community access improvements within the corridor. The comprehensive multimodal corridor plan will consider holistic system performance and be prepared to quantify how transportation solutions identified in the plan will improve performance. The preferred alternative(s) will be selected according to which projects best achieve a balanced set of transportation, environmental, and community access improvements.
