Sutro Complete Street Project
Reno, NV (2012 - 2013)
Traffic Works recently completed traffic planning & analysis services, PS&E for signal modifications at five (5) locations, PS&E for the installation of rapid rectangular flashing beacon (RRFB) crossings at two (2) locations, and construction support for the implementation of a Federally funded complete street (road diet) project. The improvements focus on safe and efficient pedestrian travel and incorporate current ADA and new MUTCD requirements. The planning process for this project consisted of reviewing the corridor, identifying and ranking existing pedestrian/bicycle/ wheelchair travel impediments, and conducting 12 hour pedestrian/bicycle/wheelchair counts at four locations using in-house video recording technology to identify volumes for each mode, users, primary travel paths/crossings, and other key trends/considerations. We performed AM and PM peak hour level of service analysis at each signalized intersection in the study corridor to determine the lane configurations necessary to maintain acceptable levels of service. We then developed conceptual layouts to improve the safety for pedestrians and cyclist while maintaining acceptable traffic operations.
In 2014, this project was given an award for outstanding achievement in Transportation by the Truckee Meadows Branch of the American Society of Civil Engineers. Traffic Works is proud to have been a part of the project team and to have worked closely with so many fantastic partners. We would like to thank the Truckee Meadows Branch of ASCE for this recognition of a great project and outstanding project team.
