Corridor Improvement Program (CIP) PHASE I – Assessment of US1/SR5
In an effort to maximize the effectiveness of existing corridors and recognize changing local conditions, the Volusia TPO (VTPO) has undertaken a series of corridor implementation studies that will provide an assessment of some of our primary transportation corridors. The VTPO, in partnership with Volusia County, the Florida Department of Transportation (FDOT), Votran, and all the jurisdictions along the corridor have worked together on a collection and analysis of all transportation studies previously undertaken on US1/SR5 from the Brevard County line to I-95 in Ormond Beach.
Corridor Improvement Program (CIP) Phase II - Corridor Review of US1/SR5
The intent of Phase II of the US 1 Corridor Improvement Program (CIP) is to build on the results of Phase I which concluded with the identification of multi‐modal transportation improvements along US 1 from the Brevard County line to I‐95 in Ormond Beach. The approach that was taken involved coordination with the ‘stakeholders’ that included a kickoff meeting, one on one interviews, interactive workshops and a detailed review process to define the projects that most support the current goals and objectives of the corridor as defined by the stakeholders. Although there is a desire from the communities along US 1 to improve pedestrian, bicycle and transit travel along (and across) US 1, the way these modes would be served are conceived in different ways throughout the corridor (for example, bicycle travel may be planned as a bike lane in some areas of US 1 and a multimodal trail along US 1 in other areas).
The Florida Department of Transportation (FDOT) has partnered with the Volusia Transportation Planning Organization (VTPO) to conduct Phase II of the US 1 Corridor Improvement Program. Phase II will help to determine the most effective way to have US 1 serve all users and modes of transportation along the corridor, and across the corridor. The early activities will be to collect and analyze transportation and land use data and to engage stakeholders in brief interviews to best understand the immediate and long-term opportunities and issues surrounding the corridor.
