Title
Resolution to Proceed with a Road Reconfiguration Pilot for Green Road, from Burbank Drive to Plymouth Road

Memorandum
This is a resolution to approve the pilot road reconfiguration, safety improvements, and non-motorized system expansion project along Green Road from Burbank Drive to Plymouth Road as called for in the City's Non-Motorized Plan. The project would be completed as part of the surface treatment project, which was approved by Council and is to be completed Summer 2019.

The road reconfiguration is illustrated in the attachment (Attachment A) and would include the following:
* Narrowing of vehicular lanes to 10' width to encourage slower speeds.
* Reduce the number of vehicular lanes, between Burbank Drive and Commonwealth Boulevard, from four to three. The revised cross section will include one vehicular through lane and one bicycle lane northbound, one vehicular through lane and one bicycle lane southbound, and a two-way left turn lane.
* Reduce the number of northbound lanes, between Plymouth Road and Commonwealth Boulevard, from two to one.
* The reduced lane width and lane reduction will allow the continuation of the buffered bicycle lanes between Burbank Boulevard and Plymouth Road.
* The southbound Green Road approach to Plymouth Road will maintain the dual left turn lanes, dedicated through lane, and dedicated right turn lane.
* The proposed changes will fill gaps in bicycle infrastructure along the length of Green Road.

The attached report (Attachment B) provides some more detailed information about the existing conditions and anticipated impact of the project. The street currently serves an average daily vehicular traffic volume of 7,500 vehicles and a peak hour volume of 1,233 vehicles. The proposed design is expected to have a minimal impact to vehicular level of service or volume to capacity ratios while improving the user experience for bicyclists and pedestrians.

These concepts were taken through a series of public enga...
