Alternatives Evaluation Criteria

The engineering and permitting aspects of each alternate design will be quantified and documented in the Preliminary Engineering Report. Each alternative will include a traffic control plan through the work area. Each alternative will be evaluated based on a number of factors, some of which include:

Roadway capacity and forecasted future demand volumes

Construction costs (includes drainage and stormwater management costs) 

Social and Cultural Impacts

Impacts to adjacent residents

Right-of-way costs 

Engineering design costs (includes permitting) 

Pedestrian/bicycle facilities 

Transit alternatives 

Maintenance of traffic during construction

Comprehensive economic evaluation 

Environmental impacts  

Evaluating alternatives will increase the probability of developing efficient and effective transportation solutions that are sensitive to the immediate community, cost effective to taxpayers, and environmentally sound for generations to come. The analysis of alternatives should identify any non-viable alternates and provide documentation for rejection. After the review of alternatives, a conceptual design for the selected alternate will be included as part of the Final Engineering Report.

Here are the alternatives for Segment 1, Segment 2, and Segment 3, presented to the public on May 19, 2011.
