TMP in Action
With the adoption of this plan, the city commits itself to the strategies contained in the Current Funding program and to actively pursuing the funding needed to implement the Action Plan. The implementation steps that will be taken in the next two years include:
- Continue to prioritize, design and construct our multimodal corridors for all modes of travel in a way that fits the desired character and function for each individual corridor and corridor segment.
- Continue to coordinate transportation planning and investments with anticipated changes in land use to maximize the effectiveness of both.
- Continue planning for the proposed Community Transit Network (CTN) transit service on 28th Street to support the land use and multimodal investments on that corridor.
- Continue to pursue lower-cost pedestrian and bicycle facility enhancements through the dedicated pedestrian and bike facilities funds (such as pedestrian crossings, access ramps, bike lanes and missing links).
- Focus on roadway enhancement projects that also address safety issues identified through the Hazard Elimination Program.
- Continue to implement efficiency improvements to the overall system through real-time traffic information (see Intelligent Transportation Systems), traffic flow improvements at key intersections, and other efforts.
- Continue to support and participate in coalitions to create multimodal plans and funding for key regional connections such as the Diagonal (Highway 119), Arapahoe Road (Highway 7), Highway 93, and U.S. 36.
- Maintain the city's role in supporting the locally preferred improvements on the U.S. 36 corridor by active participation and creation of funding opportunities in the EIS process.
- Continue the city's participation in the Boulder County Regional Transit Committee to develop a county-wide vision and funding plan for transit.
- Pursue implementation of providing real-time transit information at major bus stops and through the internet, cell phones and PDAs.
Transportation Demand Management (TDM)
- Continue to implement efficiency improvements to the overall system through real-time traffic information (see Intelligent Transportation System), transit information, traffic flow improvements at key intersections and other efforts that help people use the transportation system more efficiently.
- Begin working with businesses and residents in the 28th/30th Street corridor to explore how TDM and a business-oriented Transportation Management Organization can integrate, promote and support the expected development, redevelopment, and transition of the area.
- Distribute the TDM Toolkit to businesses, property owners, and property managers, and work with them to develop customized TDM programs appropriate for their location.
- Develop the annual transportation budget and CIP in a way that reflects the spending priorities of the Current Funding program.
- Begin discussions with business and community groups on the need for additional transportation funding, with the expectation of developing a ballot proposal supporting a set of projects and programs consistent with the framework of the Action Plan.
- Work with RTD to implement and fund real-time transit information on buses in Boulder.
- Establish targets for clean fuels for the public (bus) fleets and, through an incentive-based approach, the private (citizens of Boulder) fleet (see Alternatively Fueled Vehicles).
- Continue to replace gasoline- and diesel-fueled vehicles with alternatively fueled vehicles within the city fleet.
- Maintain and enhance the TMP Web site and develop it into a comprehensive gateway to the transportation activities of the city and the region.
