Northern Baker Transportation Improvement Plan


Project Overview and Benefits

Vision and Guiding Principles

Context and Site Analysis Working

The Northern Baker Transportation Improvement Plan is a long-range plan that will deliver a community vision for three transportation corridors in order to foster sustainable economic growth and safe, equitable transportation choices:

  • 10th Street from Hughes Lane to Broadway Street (US 30)
  • Cedar Street from Hughes Lane to Campbell Street
  • Hughes Lane from 10th Street to Cedar Street and Pocahontas Road from 10th Street to 17th Street/Chico Street

This area has seen an increase in people walking and biking, and the plan will seek to improve facilities, safety and connections for these users. The plan will also address traffic safety and flow and freight mobility.

The plan will identify a recommended concept design that addresses current deficiencies and meets the need of this important area of the city as we continue to grow and evolve.
