Transportation Charrette Traffics in Good Ideas From Public

Thank you to all who participated in the Freeway/Local Transportation Charrette held April 11-13! Over 50 people attended one or more of three public sessions. The project team received more than 40 ideas for improving I-5 and the local street system surrounding the Broadway/Weidler Interchange.

During the charrette, the project team and consultants grouped ideas by common elements or "themes" and developed preliminary sketches that illustrate how they could play out on the ground. These preliminary freeway concepts will be presented at a subcommittee meeting on April 20 (see calendar).

Next steps will be to further refine the freeway project and integrate it with preliminary land use concepts developed in February. See the summary of the Land Use Charrette for more information on that event and the resulting work products.
