SOCIETY HILL/QUEEN VILLAGE TRANSPORTATION MANAGEMENT STUDY. FINAL REPORT AND RECOMMENDATIONS

Because of its location on the southeast corner of the Center City and the attractiveness of its residential and commercial areas, this area is facing a number of transportation problems. The major objectives of this study are to give priority to residents and short-term customers/visitors for scarce curbside parking spaces; to reduce the parking and traffic conflicts between residential and commercial areas; to favor local traffic over through traffic; and to improve the pedestrian environment for both visitors and residents. Recommendations include some immediate and low-cost actions and higher-cost physical improvements for a longer term. Certain changes are recommended for the bus services through the area. The report has four parts: (1) An overview of existing conditions in the study area; (2) The process by which a wide range of transportation management strategies were developed and evaluated; (3) The study team's final recommendations; (4) Issues which must be addressed if the recommended strategies are to be implemented.
