Hot Topics of the 2018-2019 TMP Update
Within these areas, here are some of the hot topics we'll be focusing on in the upcoming 2018-2019 Transportation Master Plan (TMP) update:
2019 Pedestrian Plan
The 2018-2019 TMP Update prioritizes pedestrian travel as the primary mode of transport, as it connects all other modes. The TMP will include the first Pedestrian Plan update since the 1996 Pedestrian Policy Plan.
Action points include:
- Enhance compliance with Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) requirements.
- Improve first- and final-mile pedestrian travel connections.
- Establish more neighborhoods where residents can access grocery stores, transit and other destinations within a 15-minute walk.
Vision Zero is the Boulder community's goal to reduce the number of traffic-related fatalities and serious injuries to zero and is part of the city's Transportation Master Plan. The 2018-2019 TMP Update will evaluate progress made toward this goal and use a data-driven approach to identify needs for future engineering works, education programs and enforcement to increase the safety of Boulder's streets.
Exciting transportation innovations are on the horizon, from ridesharing vehicles that “talk” to one another to self-driving cars. The 2018-2019 TMP Update will explore the use of these technologies to improve mobility for all community members, reduce greenhouse gas emissions, and use our existing transportation infrastructure efficiently.
Funding is an integral component of the city’s ability to operate, maintain, and enhance its transportation network. The 2018-2019 TMP Update will examine expected declines in existing funding sources and investigate new strategies and sources for the future.
