LOWER MANHATTAN TRANSPORTATION MANAGEMENT STUDY
This study develops a transportation management plan to assign street use priorities, lessen pedestrian/vehicular conflicts and identify low capital cost improvements to implement the plan. The plan provides for improved pedestrian and vehicular circulation, more efficient surface transit operations, increases pedestrian and vehicular safety, more efficient goods movement and delivery access, improved access to mass transit, increased pedestrian space and reduced air pollution levels. The overall vehicular traffic flow plan involves the creation of traffic cells in the assignment of direction and classification to the streets. In addition to the overall circulation plan, specific components of the circulation system were investigated. The latter investigation led to the development of recommendations and the identification of improvements which could be implemented. An implementation schedule was developed, capital costs were estimated, and possible funding sources were identified.
