1 Workshop Presentation for Homedale, Owyhee County & Homedale Highway District for Homedale, Owyhee County & Homedale Highway District Corridor Management Plan

2 Why are we here tonight? To talk with you about Idaho 19. To share what we have learned so far. To hear about your experiences on ID 19 to help identify future improvements - a mostly rural roadway that travels nearly 15.3 miles from the Oregon State Line to Caldwell. Corridor Management Plan

3 What is a corridor plan? A near-term (10-year) plan. Analysis of future travel demand and performance in the corridor. Evaluation of problems and needs. Identification of corridor improvement priorities. Our objective is to continue to provide a roadway that is both safe and efficient. Corridor Management Plan

4 Major Stakeholders Idaho Transportation Department Schools, business, major employers Canyon and Owyhee counties Caldwell, Greenleaf, Wilder, Homedale Canyon Highway District No. 4, Golden Gate Highway District and Homedale Highway District Corridor Management Plan

27 WHERE WILL WE BE TOMORROW? – Road Capacity Bottlenecks Result in Congestion  …a reduction in Level of Service (LOS) Corridor Management Plan

28 WHERE WILL WE BE TOMORROW? Roadway Capacity  For most segments (including three and two lane sections) we are well under capacity of the roadway today (when we compare current volumes to existing capacity) but ID 19 users will experience a decline in level of service (LOS) after 15 years. Corridor Management Plan

29 WHERE WILL WE BE TOMORROW? Speed Concerns  Speed studies show we drive an average of 10% over the posted limits, however... Average speed is just above the posted limit (60 mph) Corridor Management Plan

30 WHERE WILL WE BE TOMORROW? Why is Access Management Important to ID 19 Users?  Improve safety.  Maintain a functional highway – efficiently move traffic to and through your communities.  Safe and functional highways is one more reason why the ID 19 travel shed should continue to be a good place to live and do business.  Planning can help to balance public and private interest. Corridor Management Plan

31 WHERE ARE W E TODAY? Access Points Per Mile  Nationwide and Statewide Studies Reveal…  An increase of 10 – 20 access points per mile on major arterials increases crash rate by 30%.  Idaho Statewide data indicate that 37% of all crashes occur at intersections, driveways and alleys.  Well managed arterials have 40% - 50% fewer crashes.

33 Why is Access Management Important to Idaho Transportation Department?  Our Mission: Your mobility.  To maintain a efficient high speed linkages from Activity Centers in Canyon & Owyhee Counties to other places within Idaho.  To improve safety – remove unsafe features or add features which will improve both safety and functionality of Idaho 19.  Both of these can be more affordable with careful access management. Corridor Management Plan

34 NOW A WORD FROM OUR SPONSOR… Funding Challenge: Idaho’s state and local transportation agencies need an additional $240 million each year to meet our increasing transportation needs. Without the revenue increase, we will not have the funds needed to: Improve highway safety Maintain or improve highway efficiency Match federal highway funds Corridor Management Plan

35 NOW A WORD FROM OUR SPONSOR… Funding challenge: Idaho is the 4 th -fastest growing state in the nation. Idaho’s population is expected to increase by 35% between 2000 and 2020, nearly twice the national average growth rate. That means more cars, trucks and drivers – and more demand for better roads and bridges. Corridor Management Plan

36 NOW A WORD FROM OUR SPONSOR… Funding challenge: State revenue is not keeping pace: Idaho’s fuel tax has not increased since Statewide vehicle registration fees have not increased since Highway construction & maintenance materials costs are soaring. Corridor Management Plan

37 Stay Tuned and Involved: For information, visit itd.idaho.gov, go to Projects, Southwest Idaho, Idaho 19 Corridor Study. Questions, comments or suggestions: For more information, call ITD Office of Communications at Corridor Management Plan

38 What’s Next…  BASED ON YOUR FEEDBACK…  Narrow the list of the needed improvements.  Bring policy and physical improvements to local stakeholders’ Task Force for plan review.  Take recommended plan elements to:  Local Planning and Zoning Commissions  Local Government (County, Highway District, Cities)  Idaho Transportation Board (ITD) Corridor Management Plan

39 Thank you for attending  ITD appreciates your comments and will consider them in the draft corridor plan.  Please take time to examine the exhibits and discuss your concerns with us… and  Take the time to mark-up the map of the Idaho 19 Canyon County area Corridor Management Plan
