Here is the summary from the staff report for this work session:
Staff will present updated results of the transportation analysis performed in support of the White Flint 2 Sector Plan Public Hearing Draft Plan according to the procedures in the recently adopted 2016-2020 Subdivision Staging Policy (SSP) for Local Area Transportation Review (LATR). The analysis illustrates the transportation impacts of the level of development recommended in the Public Hearing Draft of the Plan on the proposed roadway network, and provides the foundation for the mobility recommendations in the Plan.
On January 26, 2017, staff presented the results of initial transportation analysis to the Planning Board based on the Critical Lane Volume (CLV) method and related CLV intersection congestion standards. The Staff has updated the transportation analysis using the Highway Capacity Manual (HCM) method, which measures intersection congestion standards based on average intersection delay.
Staff recommends that the staging plan in the Public Hearing Draft be modified by moving the shuttle/circulator from the second phase to the first phase to promote mobility options earlier in the Plan’s implementation. Also, the recommended Non-Automotive Driver Mode Share (NADMS) is divided into categories for residents and employees. Key transportation recommendations and policies associated with the adjacent 2010 White Flint Sector Plan are also summarized in this report.
