Features: DESMAN was retained by University Circle Incorporated (UCI) to analyze the traffic impacts of the proposed development plans by UC institutions over the next five and ten year periods. Based on this analysis Desman was charged with evaluating the impact on intersections within the UC area, identifying where and what type of traffic mitigation improvements are needed, analyzing how an increase in public transportation use due to the Euclid Corridor Transportation Project will effect future traffic conditions, and determining if a major investment in off-site parking facilities will help access and mobility needs at University Circle for the next ten years.
Description: A trip generation analysis for a five and ten year period was conducted based on development plans for the Cleveland Clinic, University Hospitals of Cleveland, Veteran Affairs Medical Center, Case Western Reserve University, the Cleveland Museum of Art, the Natural History Museum, the Urban Arts and Retail District (UARD), and Western Reserve Historical Society. Capacity analyses were conducted for the existing, five, and ten year traffic conditions at 28 intersections in the University Circle area. The planned geometric changes for the Euclid Corridor Transportation Project were also reflected in the five and ten year analyses. Geometric improvements were suggested for any intersection that proved to operate at unsatisfactory levels based on the capacity analysis results. The geometric changes for each intersection, the approximate cost of each improvement, and when the improvements would be needed to be completed were provided to University Circle Incorporated.
