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 24, 2017 Open House staff will provide an update to local residents, businesses, and property owners on the Trotter Road Community Streets project. The City would like to share the final design, project schedule, and construction impacts to the community. Below are exhibits detailing each part of the project. We appreciate your input!

Attachment: Document - North Plan View (8th Avenue/ Trotter Road Intersection to 14th Avenue SW)

Description:

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. This exhibit shows the final design along Trotter Road from 8th Avenue to 14th Avenue SW. 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, and curb drainage inlets. The final design includes textured pavement, traffic calming features, or gateway landscaping throughout the corridor. This exhibit presents the proposed roadway improvements for the length of the project with property addresses.

 

Attachment: Document - South Plan View (14th Avenue SW to 16th Avenue/ Trotter Road Intersection)

Description:

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 curb inlets, and intersection improvements. This exhibit presents the proposed roadway improvements for the length of the project with property addresses.

 

Attachment: Document - Hardscape Exhibits (Typical Cross Section and Intersection Enhancements)

Description:

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 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 intersections at 8th Avenue / Trotter and the 16th Avenue / Trotter, and the proposed cross sections throughout the corridor.

 

Attachment: Document - Revised Bus Stop Locations

Description:

The Trotter Road project will accommodate growth by promoting use of transit and addressing deficient bicycle and pedestrian accommodations along the community street corridor. This exhibit identifies the location of all the existing and proposed bus stops. One bus stop was eliminated and one stop was consolidated due to low ridership.

 

Attachment: Document - Temporary Easements and Conflicts

Description:

The Trotter Road project will include new 11 foot drive lanes, adding bike lanes on both sides, and sidewalk. The proposed improvements will require all the driveway aprons along Trotter Road to be reconstructed. The City will need to coordinate with several residents to attain a temporary construction easement to resolve conflicts with existing drives ways and utilities.
