Alameda Multimodal Arterial Plan
Fehr & Peers led a multidisciplinary team in the development of a first-of-its-kind Countywide Multimodal Arterial Plan for Alameda County. This plan is unique in that it relies on a quantitative, data-driven and highly technical approach to identify short- and long-term multimodal improvements along a 1,200 mile Arterial Network.
The following project components provide the technical basis for identifying a multitude of recommended improvements:
Readily-available data ranging from cross-sectional measurements, traffic volumes, automobile and transit speeds, pavement condition and existing collision history was collected along the Arterial Network.
The foundation framework for defining the complete streets network, which reflects how streets function for all users and establishes the connection between streets and their adjacent land uses.
The method for balancing modes along the Arterial Network, based on the typology framework and land use context.
Performance Measures and Objectives
Several measures were identified to evaluate multimodal performance; modal priorities were used to inform the performance objectives along the Arterial Network.
