1 Public Involvement Open Houses Develop Problem Statement Review plans, policies, regulations, and standards Identify and assess Alternate Mobility Standard Options Identify preferred alternate mobility standard Local Adoption Compile technical work into the Facility Plan Oregon Transportation Commission Adoption Project Schedule Project advisory committee meetingPublic Open House Newport South Beach Facility Plan

2 South Beach Study Area From Yaquina Bay Bridge south to SW 62 nd Street 35 th Street 40 th Street 50 th Street (Current alignment) 50 th Street (New alignment) South Beach State Park 32 nd Street Newport South Beach Facility Plan

3 The Yaquina Bay Bridge constrains traffic on US 101. Today, on summer weekends and on special fishing seasons such as opening day for halibut. At planning horizon, the bridge will be a constraint much more frequently. Significant congestion and delays, especially in summer, expected to exceed 2012 ODOT mobility targets. Conditions closer to the bridge expected to be worse. Highway traffic demand near bridge could exceed highway capacity up to 8 hours per day during summer. Even with improvements, traffic would exceed 2012 OHP mobility targets. Future Traffic Conditions: Year 2030 Newport South Beach Facility Plan

4 Traffic Growth Future development adds about 3,900 trips by % of new trips assumed to head north, 30% south. Major improvements to US 101 and local system needed to support development. Newport South Beach Facility Plan

5 Assumed Improvements on US 101 Projections of future traffic conditions assume the following projects will occur (some are funded through the URD, others are unfunded): Intersection upgrades including new traffic signals US 101 widening (4 lanes) Off-highway local roadway connections Newport South Beach Facility Plan

6 South Beach Urban Renewal District Anticipated $5 Million over 20 years to pay for projects in URD Plan ODOT/FHWA No funding is known at this time Property Developers Frontage improvements; local network improvements What about the Yaquina Bay Bridge? No funds currently identified to address this need Funding: How will projects be paid for? Newport South Beach Facility Plan

7 Management tool to balance land development and traffic congestion on US 101 Allows more traffic congestion given lack of funds for major highway projects Provides greater predictability for developers and the City about acceptable level of land development Creates an agreement among City, County, and ODOT about future growth in South Beach. Replaces current stop-gap management of S 40 th Street. Alternate Mobility Standards Newport South Beach Facility Plan

8 Traffic Mobility – Optimize travel reliability Provides expectation for summertime tourist season and off-season congestion along US 101. Accessibility Provides an interconnected network of off-highway streets for local travel and property access. Land Development Predictability Provides a common understanding among the jurisdictions, land owners and developers. Flexibility – adaptable to changing conditions Allow for monitoring and periodic updates to adjust traffic and population assumptions Ability to fund Link facility improvements with property development. Alternate Mobility Standards: Goals & Objectives Newport South Beach Facility Plan

9 1. Location: Where will the standards be implemented? At signalized intersections? U nsignalized intersections? All intersections? A corridor standard? Separate directional standards (north vs. south)? 2. Analysis Period: What time period is to be used? The summer time weekday peak hour (high congestion)? The annual average traffic (comparable to May or October)? Off-season peak? 3. When are the Standards Implemented? At adoption? When roadway projects are completed? When intersections are signalized and upgraded? 4. Allowed Congestion Level: What will the level of congestion be? Extremely congested and over capacity? Somewhat congested? Similar to current standards? 5. Land Use Policy Changes: How can development in South Beach be managed so that it does not exceed the alternate mobility standard? Trip caps? Trip budgets? Overlay zones? Phased development? Alternate Mobility Standards: Common Elements Newport South Beach Facility Plan

10 1. Location: Where will the standards be implemented? At signalized intersections. Measured at SE32nd Street now; at S 35 th, S 40 th and SE 50 th /South Beach State Park in the future 2. Analysis Period: What time period is used for analysis? The annual average traffic (shoulder tourist season). It involves fewer analysis assumptions than Off-Season, so less likely to create problematic TIAs. 3. When are the Standards Implemented? At adoption. A single time point rather than multiple points. 4. Allowed Congestion Level: What will the level of congestion be? Dependent upon proximity to the bridge--extremely congested and over capacity near the bridge; somewhat congested further away. 5. Land Use Policy Changes: How to manage development in South Beach? Use trip budgets and reserve fund, and plan for most likely development Alternate Mobility Standards: Decisions Newport South Beach Facility Plan

11 Total trip budget from planned development identified. Trip Budget for each TAZ created, plus a South Beach Trip Reserve Fund. Reserve Fund usable in any TAZ after TAZ Budget is exceeded. Reserve Fund is 10% of total trip budget South Beach Overlay Zone – Implementation mechanism for the trip budget without affecting similarly zoned land elsewhere in Newport Phased development – Each TAZ to develop to extent projectedthis is not full development of South Beach.
