PROJECT SUMMARY

The City, Whatcom Transportation Authority (WTA), Washington State Department of Transportation (WSDOT), Whatcom Council of Governments (WCOG) and TranspoGroup consultants are collaborating on a comprehensive multimodal transportation study for the area between the Samish/I-5 and Iowa/I-5 interchanges and the Samish-Maple-Ellis corridor and the Puget-Lakeway-Lincoln corridor (see map below). The purpose is to document existing land uses, known development proposals, and land supply, then measure and analyze vehicular traffic impacts and travel demand for people walking, biking, and riding


PROJECT SUMMARY

The City, Whatcom Transportation Authority (WTA), Washington State Department of Transportation (WSDOT), Whatcom Council of Governments (WCOG) and TranspoGroup consultants are collaborating on a comprehensive multimodal transportation study for the area between the Samish/I-5 and Iowa/I-5 interchanges and the Samish-Maple-Ellis corridor and the Puget-Lakeway-Lincoln corridor (see map below). The purpose is to document existing land uses, known development proposals, and land supply, then measure and analyze vehicular traffic impacts and travel demand for people walking, biking, and riding transit.

Analysis of alternatives for long-term changes to existing vehicle traffic circulation in the vicinity of the Lakeway/I-5 interchange and the potential consolidation and/or relocation of vehicular driveways along a portion of Lincoln Street will be included in this study. The project team will engage the public in various ways and seek input over the course of the study. Ultimately, both short-term and long-term multimodal transportation system improvements will be identified and recommended, which will allow Public Works to program local funding and to seek state and federal grant funding for construction in future years.
