The US 92/ISB corridor located in Daytona Beach, FL experienced an influx of public and private investments in infrastructure, infill, redevelopment and new development opportunities along its limits, unlike any other within the area. In response, Florida Department of Transportation (FDOT)’s District 5 sought to build on its existing master plan concept and produce a Corridor Management Master Plan (CMMP) to define a more unified process to organizing the future look and feel of the ISB Corridor.
Benesch led the development of the CMMP. Located within a compact urban setting, the scope of the CMMP greatly reached beyond the typical scope of a corridor planning study. The project required the development of a more comprehensive master planning study, including an implementation program to guide and coordinate FDOT safety, enhancement, transit, congestion management and economic development investments, as well as the private sector equivalents, along the ISB corridor.
To ensure seamless integration of the improvements into the overall corridor through the horizon year 2035, the CMMP evaluated the myriad studies, proposals and regulations. The team conducted travel demand modeling to incorporate proposed developments and analyze impacts to the future year level of service and integration of modified land use policies with existing proposed infrastructure investments.
To address multimodal connectivity, the CMMP coordinated the combined impacts of more than 50 projects. This identified gaps within the proposed multimodal network between planned, committed and already constructed projects. Benesch’s recommendations included connecting bicycle and pedestrian gaps, improving bicycle facilities, widening sidewalks, adjusting speed limits where needed and the adding raised median islands in select areas. The study was guided by a Project Visioning Team (PVT) and interviews with major area stakeholders and featured two public meetings.
