RECORD OF MEETING
WORKING GROUP C
ATTENDANCE: Bob Phillips;
John Poorman (CDTC).
John Poorman briefly went over the content of the Long Range Regional Transportation Plan Comparative Analysis paper.
As a reminder to the group, the charge of working group C is to put those big things on the table that the region should start thinking about. However, the ideas put on the table are not guaranteed to make it into the 2030 plan but will be considered.
The project rankings submitted by members of the working group were then discussed. The rankings and subsequent discussion led to the development of a list of projects that will be further evaluated. These projects are:
· Removal of the Park East
Freeway Stub in
addition, several projects will be forwarded to other working groups for
further analysis. Group B (Expressway System Issues and Options) will be asked
to consider the Los Angeles Automated Traffic Surveillance and Control System
and the Wisconsin Regional Freeway System Reconstruction Study. This hand-off reflects the fact that Group B
is already exploring reconstruction requirements and has a stated charge to
look at expressway management options.
The remaining expressway candidates in Group C’s list relate to
mitigation and re-integration efforts (freeway removal and noise abatement) and
major expansion (congestion pricing and transitway), which are not the focus of
Group B. Group A (Effects of Alternative Growth and Development
be asked to consider the Portland Light Rail and Land Use Development effort (at
least the land use policy aspect). The
light rail subject was not a high priority in
NEXT STEPS: CDTC staff will conduct additional research on the six projects to be further analyzed and will generate brief reports on each for review by the working group. We will set a date and time for the next meeting once we have meaningful products to share with the group.
