What is the purpose of this study?

The purpose of the study is to address short-term and long-term needs along the key corridors in the Town Center area. The study addresses the Big Shanty Road Corridor. The study aims to guide the future transportation and economic activities along the corridors by developing an array of alternative improvements along with recommending policies and procedures.

What is the anticipated result of this study?

The objective of this study is to quantify short-term and long-term transportation needs on Big Shanty Road, and identify and evaluate a broad range of multi-modal improvements. A comparative analysis of the improvements will be completed to rank the proposed projects based on their ease of construction, potential funding partners, and benefits achieved. The final result will lead towards a preferred alternative that can be advanced for implementation.

How will the improvements be paid for?

A particular funding source has not been identified. That determination will be made by the Town Center CID after the preferred alternatives have been selected.

When will the public be able to provide input on the study and proposed improvements?

There will be a number of Public Involvement events held to receive public input. For a full list of upcoming events check the Get Involved Page . The public can also submit feedback online.
