Transportation and Mobility

Fehr and Peers will lead the transportation planning efforts to improve community mobility across all modes – driving, walking, biking, and riding transit. The transportation planning efforts will include the following:

  • An analysis of existing and anticipated traffic volumes and patterns.
  • A general assessment of infrastructure for all modes, including an analysis for the “20-minute neighborhood” concept from a mobility perspective.
  • Identification of opportunities, methods, and programs to increase transit ridership and transit functionality in the study area, and locations for possible West Vail transit hub.
  • A connectivity analysis and related recommendations for connectivity between West Vail and the rest of Vail (Gore Trail, transit services, etc.).
  • Identification of crossing issues for pedestrians, especially at roundabouts.
  • A transportation workshop for the public to look at the existing and anticipated traffic patterns and infrastructure analysis, review key connections, identify desired crossing treatments and cross-sections, explore transit solutions, and brainstorm appropriate transportation policies for West Vail.
  • Renderings of improvements for roadways, bicycle and/or pedestrian connectivity.
  • Development of action steps and cost estimates for all recommendations and ideas for transportation and mobility elements of the plan.

The results of the initial analyses and assessments will be posted here. Later on, renderings and other recommendations will be posted here for your feedback.
