All preliminary alternatives were designed to meet specific project goals, SC 7 & SC 171 Project Goals/Screening Metrics . These goals are technically referred to as Screening Metrics and include two tiers, Tier One and Tier Two.
The Tier One goals (or screening metrics) were used by the project team during the Preliminary Alternatives phase of the project. During this phase, the team analyzed nine reasonable alternatives regarding impacts on mobility, as well as accessibility to/from neighborhoods and businesses. The team also utilized preliminary traffic modeling to identify the projected traffic operations for all modes of transportation within the study area, including bicyclists, pedestrians, and vehicles. After analyzing each reasonable alternatives using this criteria, the project team found four alternatives that met the majority of the Tier One Goals (or screening metrics).
Tier Two goals (or screening metrics) will be used in the next phase to determine which of the four remaining alternatives best meet the goals of the project and the community. This phase will review each alternatives’ potential environmental, right-of-way, utility and transportation impacts. The project team will also consider preliminary cost estimates and feedback gathered during the public comment period.
