Microsoft PowerPoint - PIM1_072519.ppt - Compatibility ModePublic Informational Meeting
July 25, 2019
Agenda
• Welcome and Introductions • Meeting Purpose • Project Background and Existing Data • Purpose and Need • Project Scope and Process • Key Considerations • Next Steps and Schedule
Meeting Purpose
• “Blank Slate” Public Informational Meeting – General definition of the project – Improve our understanding – Learn about concerns and priorities of the
corridor users – Help define the next phases of design
Ocean Road
Begin Project
End Project
Project Background
• 1984 US Route 1 Policy – Two through lanes each direction – Medians and left turn lanes at key
intersections • 1989 Kimball-Chase Feasibility Study
– Same as 1984 Policy • 2011 US Route 1 Corridor Plan
– 5 lane cross section with medians, bike shoulders and sidewalks
Project Background
Existing Corridor Data
• Average Daily Traffic – – 20,000 vehicles per day (2019) – 25,000 vpd (2009) – 26,000 vpd (2045)
• Posted Speed Limit – 35 mph
Existing Corridor Data
• 5 Signalized Intersections – Ocean Road – Heritage Drive – Walmart Drive – Southgate Plaza – Wilson Road
Ocean Road Wilson RoadConstitution Drive
Heritage Dr. West Road
• 2,000 +/- LF of sidewalk
• 70 +/- Abutting parcels
• Improve safety • Improve traffic flow • Create pedestrian and bicycle facilities • Provide transit opportunities • Improve aesthetics
– Need • Inconsistent/Confusing lane configuration • High crash rate • Difficult turning movements • Minimal bicycle and pedestrian facilities
Project Scope
• US Route 1 Improvements between Ocean and Wilson Roads
• Can be shaped by public input • May be limited due to funding
constraints ($4.9 million for construction in TYP)
Design Process • Data Collection & Evaluation
– Initial Public Input – PAC Involvement – Public Information Meeting (PIM) (7/25/19) – Section 106 Consulting Parties
• Alternatives Analysis and Design – Second round of Public Involvement
• Evaluate impact/effect on resources • Identify and Select Preferred Alternative
– Third round of Public Involvement
Design Process
– Summarize effects of Preferred Alternative • Final Design • Environmental Permitting • Right-of-Way Acquisition
Evaluation Process
– Stormwater Treatment – Natural and Cultural Resources – Right of Way – Access Management – Maintenance – Utilities
Key Considerations
– Contaminated Soils/Groundwater
– Bat Habitat
• Endangered Species
Key Considerations
• Cemeteries
Chace 1857 Rockingham County Map shows approximately nine houses, two cemeteries and a schoolhouse on Lafayette Road between Ocean and Peverly Hill Roads.
1956 USGS shows more than 20 individual properties on Lafayette Rd/US 1 between Ocean and Peverly Hill roads, two cemeteries, and the beginnings of now larger subdivisions on corners of Ocean Rd and Elwyn Rd.

Cemetery
Location 6 – Near McKinley Road
Next Steps
• Continue Data Gathering • Summarize input from PAC and PIM • Begin Conceptual Design Development
Schedule
• Develop Alternatives – Through Summer 2020
• Environmental Evaluation – Through Winter 2021
• Public Hearing – Spring 2021 • Finalize NEPA – Summer 2021 • Final Design - 2022 to 2024 • Construction – Beginning in 2025
