1 Blacklands Corridor Feasibility Study Public Meeting November 7, 2013 McClendon Elementary School Nevada, TX

2 Overview Welcome and Project Overview Michael Morris Recent Progress Analyzing Existing and Expected Conditions Chad McKeown Study Process: Alternatives and Considerations to Evaluate Matt Craig Timeline and Upcoming Milestones Matt Craig Opportunities for Public Involvement Amanda Wilson 2

3 Study Purpose and Goals 3 Determine if there are transportation needs in the Blacklands Corridor from IH 30 to the President George Bush Turnpike Involve the public in identifying needs and potential transportation solutions Review the corridor study process and recommendations of the Texas Turnpike Corporation/Public Werks proposal for a toll road

4 Study Purpose and Goals 4 If a transportation need is identified due to current and projected future congestion: Analyze a no-build scenario and utilize it as the baseline for comparison of benefits and impacts Conduct a multimodal analysis of potential transportation solutions including various alternatives and alignments Develop concept transportation projects and objectives Identify potential economic, environmental and social impacts of build and no-build options Identify phases of early potential project implementation Develop a transportation improvement plan for the entire corridor

5 Problem Definition What are the concerns in the study area? IH 30 US 380 SH 78 Missing Roadway Network Lake Crossings Economic Development Intermodal Connections Collin County Outer Loop Safety Issues Connectivity to Job Centers Growth Others? 5

14 Travel Conditions 14 Level of Service (LOS) is a term used to indicate if traffic is moving at ideal, average, or poor efficiency. LOS ABC A LOS of A, B, or C represents a relatively uncongested facility. Vehicles can move freely with little interference. LOS F A LOS of F represents the worst level of congestion. Vehicles are unable to move freely without interference. LOS DE A LOS of D or E represents a relatively congested facility. Vehicles can move with some interference.

15 Travel Conditions Study Area Level of Service Change Year 2013 Lane Miles: LOS ABC: 86% LOS DE: 7% LOS F: 7% 2013 LOS 2035 LOS 15 Year 2035 Lane Miles: LOS ABC: 66% LOS DE: 11% LOS F: 23% ABC DE F Source: NCTCOG DFX Travel Model

19 Takeaways Congestion will increase on area roads as population and employment grow Employment in Hunt County is expected to grow faster than population Significant eastbound and westbound travel in peak periods over the lakes Lake Ray Hubbard and Lavon Lake act as transportation barriers 19

23 Blacklands Corridor Conceptual Strategies No Build Strategy Travel Options/Transportation System Management/Intelligent Transportation Systems Strategy Bicycle/Pedestrian Facilities Strategy Rail Strategy Transit Strategy Improvement of Arterials (SH 66, SH 78, US 380, etc.) Strategy Bottleneck Improvements of IH 30 Strategy Expansion of IH 30 Facility Strategy (General Purpose/HOV/Managed Lanes) New Location Highway/Freeway/Tollway Strategy 23 Note: Each Strategy evaluated individually in initial stage.

24 TO/TSM/ITS Strategy Travel Options (TO) Programs which encourage people to travel at alternate times or with fewer vehicles. Transportation Systems Management (TSM) Improves efficiency and reliability using incident management, signal coordinating, ramp metering, etc. Intelligent Transportation Systems (ITS) Advanced technologies such as real-time travel data and incident detection.

25 Bicycle/Pedestrian Facilities Strategy Regional Veloweb (2013) Mobility Update includes the Regional Veloweb, a 1,728 mile network of existing and planned off-street, shareduse paths (trails) designed for use by bicyclists and pedestrians in the DFW metropolitan area. Collin County Regional Trails Master Plan (2011) A collaborative planning effort intended to provide coordination and connectivity between cities and towns for the development of a county-wide system of trails. The key components are to define high-priority trail corridors that provide regional linkages and identify and address gaps between cities. Hunt County Bicycle and Pedestrian Plan (2012) The goal is to develop a safe, efficient and sustainable bicycle and pedestrian network in Hunt County that will promote public health, quality of life, economic development and tourism.

Does the strategy have the potential to reduce congestion in the study area? Does the strategy have a potentially significant environmental impact? Does the strategy facilitate regional economic development?

33 Takeaways Opportunities may exist to partner with utilities in sharing corridors The NETEX right-of-way should be preserved for future uses (including trails or rail transit) Most of the NETEX right-of-way may not be appropriate for construction of a roadway Initial study evaluation indicates both opportunities and constraints for new transportation facilities 33
