Mobility Corridor Normandy Boulevard-Cassat Avenue-Lenox Avenue Corridor

Description

The corridors program is intended to strike a balance between all the functions of a street putting people and quality of place first with the fundamental recognition that street can play a major role in improving public health and community livability. In order to achieve these outcomes, potential corridor improvements considers how pedestrians, bicyclists, motorists and transit users serve as partners in mobility, each contributing to a community’s quality of life.

Mobility Corridors are divided into two concurrent efforts: Transit Enhancements and Complete Streets.

Transit Enhancements includes improvements to existing bus stops within a quarter mile of 14 high-frequency transit corridors. Improvements focus on ADA accessibility and improved amenities, including concrete pads, shelters, benches, trash receptacles, and immediate sidewalk connectivity.

Complete Streets includes improvements to Right-of-Way within a quarter mile of 14 high-frequency transit corridors aimed at providing safe access for all users, including pedestrians, bicyclists, motorists, and transit riders of all ages and abilities. Improvements may include bike lanes, lighting, roadway reconfiguration, and sidewalks.

Status

Transit Enhancements:  Completed May 25, 2016.

Complete Streets: Lenox Avenue - Traffic analysis was completed and next steps are to complete the design and begin public outreach.

Benefits

These projects will provide a safe, comfortable and convenient environment for walkers and cyclists, many of whom are trying to directly access JTA’s system. In addition, these improvements will support “placemaking” opportunities in areas to support community redevelopment and revitalization.
