Project ID: 1001530 | Department ID: TRANS20004 | Contract No.: TBD |
This project provides for complete street roadway improvements to enhance safety and multimodal connectivity, including roundabouts, sidewalks and trails, bicycle facilities, enhanced crosswalks, and other safety measures. Landscaping and green infrastructure components are also included.
Enhanced multi-modal connections and safety improvements throughout the 30th St corridor from Yukon St to Fowler Ave were recommended in the MPO and City's Walk/Bike Plan, Phases I and II, and in the City’s Pavement Condition Assessment. Possible improvements that the City is considering for the approximately 1.8-mile corridor include a roundabout at the intersection of Yukon St, enhanced pedestrian crosswalks near pedestrian attractors, intermittent landscaped medians, bicycle lanes, additional sidewalks, and trails, resurfaced roadways, landscaping, and resilient drainage infrastructure.
Currently, 30th St is a four‐lane divided minor arterial with a center two‐way left‐turn lane and railroad track crossing. The posted speed is 45 MPH from Busch Boulevard to Fowler Avenue. The posted speed is 30 MPH on 30th Street south of Busch Boulevard, as that segment is a two-lane collector road with a school crossing. Several transit shelters/stops are located along 30th St. The proposed improvements will provide traffic calming to maintain safer speeds as well as provide enhanced bicycle and pedestrian infrastructure along the corridor. The objective of the improvements is to make travel safer for all users of the roadway in accordance with the City’s Vision Zero initiative.
