US 98 BRT STUDY

US 98 BRT STUDYLyle Parkway to SR 540 (Winter Lake Road)

Highland CityLake HancockAgendaIntroductionPurposeMethodologyCurrent DesignProposed AlternativesTechnologyConclusion

IntroductionUS 98 Most appropriate corridor for multimodal applications in Polk County2005 PD&E 6-lane interim and 8-lane ultimate conditionsMultimodal ConsiderationsCurrent design projectFort Fraser Trail along east side of US 98 corridor

PurposeDoes the current design preclude the implementation of a BRT system along US 98 ?

Evaluate options and provide a picture of potential bus applications based on current design project

MethodologyReview previous studies and transportation plansEvaluate available R/WDevelop Typical Sections of alternativesDevelop Pro-Con matrix for each alternativeCoordinate with stakeholders and FDOT D1 staffCurrent Design

Current Design

Proposed Alternative 1 Rural Typical Section Lyle Parkway to Hancock AvenueClubhouse Road to Winter Lake Road (SR 540)

AdvantagesNo R/W impactUse of existing facilities (6-Lane)No impact to Fort Fraser Trail Facility

DisadvantagesBuses share lanes with other vehiclesCurrent design plans show only one proposed bus bayProposed geometry would not accommodate future light rail

Proposed Alternative 1 Urban Typical SectionHancock Avenue to Clubhouse RoadAdvantagesNo R/W impactUse of existing facilities (6-Lane)No impact to Fort Fraser Trail FacilityDisadvantagesBuses share lanes with other vehiclesCurrent design plans show only one proposed bus bayProposed geometry would not accommodate future light rail

Proposed Alternative 2 Rural Typical SectionLyle Parkway to Hancock AvenueClubhouse Road to Winter Lake Road (SR 540)AdvantagesDedicated bus lanes (1 NB/1 SB)Bike lane is protected from mainline trafficNo impact to Fort Fraser Trail DisadvantagesR/W impact on west sideAdditional widening of roadway is required to the outsideBus only lanes shared with right turning traffic at intersectionsProposed geometry would not accommodate future light rail

Proposed Alternative 2 Urban Typical SectionHancock Avenue to Clubhouse RoadAdvantagesNo R/W impactDedicated bus lanes (1 NB/1 SB) separated from mainlineBike lane is protected from mainline trafficNo impact to Fort Fraser Trail

DisadvantagesAdditional widening of roadway is required to the insideBus only lanes shared with right turning traffic at intersectionsProposed geometry would not accommodate future light rail

Proposed Alternative 3 Rural Typical SectionLyle Parkway to Hancock AvenueClubhouse Road to Winter Lake Road (SR 540)AdvantagesNo R/W impactFort Fraser Trail is not impactedProposed geometry could accommodate future light rail

DisadvantagesHigher Cost

Proposed Alternative 3 With Light RailLyle Parkway to Hancock AvenueClubhouse Road to Winter Lake Road (SR 540)

Proposed Alternative 3 Urban Typical SectionHancock Avenue to Clubhouse RoadDisadvantagesMajor realignment of US 98 to avoid impact to Fort Fraser TrailR/W impact on west sideGuardrail needed in median and right

AdvantagesFort Fraser Trail is not impactedProposed geometry could accommodate future light rail

Proposed Alternative 3 Urban With Light RailLyle Parkway to Hancock AvenueClubhouse Road to Winter Lake Road (SR 540)

Proposed Alternative 3A Urban Typical SectionHancock Avenue to Clubhouse RoadDisadvantagesR/W impact along east side of Fort Fraser TrailRealignment of Fort Fraser Trail

AdvantagesNo R/W impact on west sideNo modification required to SB lanes

Proposed Alternative 3B Urban Typical SectionHancock Avenue to Clubhouse RoadDisadvantagesMinor R/W impact on east sideRealignment of a short segment Fort Fraser Trail

AdvantagesNo R/W impact on west sideReduced R/W impact on east sideNo modification required to SB lanesProposed Alternative 3B Urban Typical SectionHancock Avenue to Clubhouse Road

Proposed Alternative 2 3D Rendering

TechnologyVehicle PrioritizationVehicle Guidance and Collision AvoidanceElectronic Fare CollectionOperation Management TechnologyConclusionA BRT system could be incorporated into the US 98 corridor based on the 6-lane interim design conditionUse of available technology at the time of implementation will improve safety and efficiency of the systemQuestions ?
