University Avenue Mobility Plan
KTU+A Concept Plan
In 2002, the City of San Diego and community stakeholders developed a series of innovative traffic calming concepts for University Avenue to help enhance and rediscover the corridor as a pedestrian and transit friendly environment. A KTU+A Concept Plan emerged from this first phase of the work effort.
Afterwards, the City of San Diego, North Park Main Street, RBF Consulting and members of the community worked together to complete the second phase of this project. The goal of the University Avenue Mobility Plan is to evaluate the operational feasibility of the Preferred Concept Plan and establish a plan that is both effective at slowing traffic and meeting the goals of the traffic calming program, but also meets the design and operational requirements set forth by the City of San Diego.
The project team took a closer look at how the traffic calming and transit-oriented concepts work together along the University Avenue Corridor. A total of six community meetings were conducted from January 31st to June 12th. The workshops provided opportunities for the community to review and provide input at critical stages throughout the project.
A Refined Concept Plan in 2004 was developed from this effort that integrated most of the elements of the initial phase of the project. Key elements of the Refined Concept Plan include:
- Improved Pedestrian Facilities
- Dedicated Transit Only Lanes
- Planned Parking Improvements
- Landscape and Streetscape Improvements
- Improved Signal Operations
- Dedicated Left and Right Turn Lanes
- Traffic Calming Recommendations for Surrounding Community
