Trotter Road is an important segment of the City’s Community Street Network and a north-south segment within the City's Southwest Urban Trail Corridor. The Trotter Road Community Street Improvements project is programmed for construction in FY 2017 and will provide improvements to the roadway and drainage facilities within the Trotter Road Right-of-way from 8th Avenue SW to Hillsdale Avenue. At the August 23, 2016 City Commission Work Session staff will provide the City Commission with an overview of the feedback from the Open House being held immediately prior to the meeting and public comment will be accepted. The City would like to hear your feedback and ideas for the Trotter Road project. Below are exhibits detailing each part of the project. We appreciate your input!

The Trotter Road project will accomodate growth by promoting use of transit and addressing deficient bicycle and pedestrian accomodations along the community street corridor. This exhibit identifes key location points of bus stops and bus routes, neighborhood hub, traffic calming tools, and gateway feature locations. Different sections of the road are presented in the inset graphics. Trotter Road Reconstruction will include landscape median at select locations, 11 foot travel lanes, with 4-foot bike lanes, and 5-foot sidewalk on each side of the road.  Rain Gardens represent landscape islands with maximum 6" depression for infiltration purposes where as Bioswales represent 12" deep catchment basins with control structures and discharge of excess flow.

The goal of the Trotter Road project is to create a Community Street  that provides a safe and efficient route from neighborhoods to local destinations. Traffic calming features such as traffic circles, landscaped medians, and textured pavement provide a method to reduce vehicular speeds and provide a safe environment for pedestrians and bicyclists. This exhibit presents Pre and Post Presentation of select locations where textured pavement, traffic circle, or gateway landscaping will be installed.

The existing roadway lacks bicycle facilities, has a narrow rural section with inadequate shoulder, and has substandard sidewalk and crosswalk facilities. This project will improve the bicycle and pedestrian level of service, and safety, through retrofits of a modified urban section, including: continuous bike lanes and sidewalks, streetscaping and hardscape elements, landscaping, curbing, and stormwater retrofits to remove pollutants from stormwater runoff, and intersection improvements. This exhibit presents the proposed roadway improvements for the length of the project with property addresses.

This exhibit presents examples of urban streetscaping and furnishing elements that are considered to be incorporated within the Trotter Road Right of Way. Bike racks, bus stop furnishing, and signage will be part of the furnishing and way finding elements of the projects. Curb cuts with Bioswale planting examples are presented in additional pictures, along with a landscaping table listing native plants to be considered.

The conveyance system along Trotter Road captures approximately 62 acres and outfalls directly into McKay Creek, an impaired water body. Enhancements to the undersized and failing drainage system will provide flood protect and improve water quality. This exhibit presents the contributing drainage basin discharging into MacKay Creek. The smaller colorful inset demonstrates the ground elevation and the direction of flow. The higher grounds are represented with orange followed with yellow, and green for the lowest elevations. The arrows indicate the direction of flow as Trotter Road is located in the middle of the basin and captures excess runoff from the east side of the basin. The proposed bioswales indicated in light blue lines and followed with the section view below, they capture the runoff for treatment purposes and will uptake the nutrients by the planted landscaping.
