EP is assisting the Lawrence Redevelopment Authority with performing a traffic study that will aid their ambitious redevelopment plans throughout east Lawrence.
Consisting of eight substantial mixed-use developments, each comprised of multiple parcels, a phased approach is being taken to understand mitigation required at various thresholds of development. The study assesses the influences that transit, biking, and walking can have to reduce vehicle use and decrease the need for vehicle-centric solutions within this urban setting. Given the proximity of multiple public transportation services, each development is envisioned as a Transit-Oriented Development (TOD) to capitalize on the existing public transportation infrastructure.
EP’s traffic models take into consideration envisioned improvements for all users and all modes of transportation. This comprehensive approach enables the City to identify existing opportunities and limitations and proactively plan for future growth and development.
