The Office of University Architects has contracted with Atlanta-based firm, Vanasse Hangen Brustlin, Inc., to assist in a Campus Corridors Transportation Study for several distinct areas of campus that are experiencing challenges in pedestrian and vehicular circulation or are anticipated to see an increase in growth in the coming years.
The project objective is to develop roadway and intersection designs that improve pedestrian and bicyclist safety and comfort, while reducing multi-modal conflicts at three priority study areas on campus. The solutions will be validated by traffic engineering analysis, and prioritized for implementation based on order of magnitude cost estimates as well as perceived needs.
The three primary study areas include: 1) Connecting the Central and Northwest Precinct along Lumpkin Street, particularly from Baxter to Baldwin Streets 2) The South Campus Precinct, primarily along the Carlton Street corridor and adjoining streets. 3) The East Campus Precinct, including all streets within that portion of campus.
Stakeholder and campus community involvement activities are scheduled for March 15th, 16th, and 17th. In advance of these activities, we’d like to gather campus feedback about both general transportation choices and specific issues related to the study area.
