Union Boulevard

WHAT:

The Union Area Transportation Study will analyze current conditions, input from you and other stakeholders, and planning work already completed in the area, in order to create a list of projects for the corridor in the near future. The study will run through October 2017.

Travel through the corridor poses issues for users, and land use and transportation are expected to change. We don’t know exactly what to expect over the next 20 years, so we will develop three future scenarios and a list of projects to prepare for the future:

 

  • Auto-Oriented Scenario
  • Mixed Mode Scenario
  • Alternative Mode Scenario

 

The three scenarios will show a range of transportation, transit and land use options and how those will impact existing conditions. The scenarios will be shared with the public for additional feedback, input and refinement. The final list of proposed projects will also include information on how they aligned with each scenario and also how they align with stakeholder priorities. 
  

WHERE:

The study will look at conditions on Union Boulevard between 6th Avenue and Alameda and look at connections to and from the corridor. 

 

See a map of the study area below.

WHY:

This is an opportunity to improve mobility in the Union corridor area by assessing concerns, needs and opportunities to create a prioritized list of improvements to implement.
