Louisville Transportation Master Plan
TEI led a multi-disciplinary team developing the first transportation master plan for the City of Louisville, Colorado. Louisville is an active community experiencing changes in redevelopment and regional travel patterns, with a need for increased multimodal connectivity. This project developed a shared community vision and identified a set of projects, policies, and programs to strengthen connections between neighborhoods and community destinations and provide mobility options for people of all ages, abilities, and incomes.
A robust community engagement strategy led to significant input that guided development of recommendations, project prioritization, and ultimately community support for adoption of the TMP. Key engagement strategies included an interactive online map and attendance at several community events.
TMP development was based on a model of complete streets and multi-modal networks that work together ensuring the context of the built environment, corridor design, and amenities support improved access and mobility choices. In developing the case for action and baseline assessment, TEI analyzed current travel patterns, crash data, and existing infrastructure for walking and biking. The team mapped transit ridership as well as access and travel time to transit nodes and community destinations via walking and biking.
Recommendations were paired with an implementation plan to help guide future project development and implementation of the plan over time. The implementation plan identified a variety of components including project priorities, benefits, key partners, funding mechanisms and scenarios, and performance metrics.
