NORTH FLORIDA TPO TO HOST LONG RANGE TRANSPORTATION PLAN PUBLIC MEETINGS Area Citizens Are Invited to Discuss Needed Transportation Projects How should we invest in transportation for the future? The North Florida Transportation Planning Organization (North Florida TPO) wants to gather public input on specific transportation projects needed in the four-county metropolitan area at a series of six public meetings scheduled April 15-28. Every five years, the North Florida TPO revises the area’s transportation plan which has a 20-25 year time horizon and addresses roads, transit, freight, bike and pedestrian needs for our growing region. This year’s update will look at growth projected to the year 2040. The Path Forward 2040 Long Range Transportation Plan will be completed by December. Area citizens and business owners are encouraged to participate in the meetings. Participants will have the opportunity to learn about the planning process, review and comment on maps and potential project lists, and “vote” for their preferred category of investment. The final public meetings this fall will focus on funding and prioritizing specific transportation projects to fit within available revenue projections. The ongoing public input and plan update process will conclude with a public hearing to adopt the recommended 2040 Long Range Transportation Plan. Visit www.pathforward2040.com or call 904-306-7500 for more information.

The North Florida TPO is the independent regional transportation planning agency for Clay, Duval, Nassau and St. Johns counties. We lead our region's efforts in planning, funding and mobilizing resources to develop and maintain our transportation system.

MEETING MATERIALS


Welcome to the Path Forward 2040 Long Range Transportation Plan public meeting. We need your input in developing a long range transportation plan that reflects our shared vision for the future, considers transportation investment alternatives and allocates scarce funding resources. During the meeting you will have an opportunity to learn about the plan through our video, presentation and stations for each project category. INSTRUCTIONS: You will receive a pouch with 10 tokens to place in tubes representing the type of transportation projects you would like more of in the future. You can place all 10 tokens at one station or divide your chips among multiple stations based on what you think is important. The five categories are: BICYCLE AND PEDESTRIAN TRANSIT FREIGHT ROAD CAPACITY SAFETY AND TSM&O (TRANSPORTATION SYSTEM MANAGEMENT & OPERATIONS)

Please review the information and maps provided at each station. Study team members are available to discuss your needs and answer any questions. The potential projects depicted are based on needs identified during the last long range plan update, as well as numerous studies that included public input. If there are specific needs or projects that you would like to see addressed, please write them on the attached comment form and return the form to the comment box or any staff at the meeting. You may also view the maps and project lists at www.pathforward2040.com and provide comments online.

Choose Your Path:  What are the Best Transportation Investments?  Chamber leadership stresses the importance of investing in the port to our region’s economy while JTA is developing a blueprint for enhanced transit services.  Bicycle and pedestrian advocates continue to ask for enhanced access and safety while private companies, like Uber, seek to fill a niche in our market.    With needs so extensive and diverse, how can we plan an integrated transportation network that works for everyone? That is the challenge for the North Florida TPO in developing the Path Forward 2040 Long Range.  So many needs, so little money in comparison.  Five years ago, when the 2035 plan was created, over 170 projects costing nearly $12 billion were identified for the Needs Plan.  That number was whittled down to 56 projects costing a little over $5 billion for the final Cost Feasible Plan.  Typically, only half of needed projects can be funded unless a new revenue source is identified.  


Who sets the priorities and decides what’s in and what’s out?  In a large part, you do.  There’s an easy way to give input right now by playing  Choose Your Path ­ the Asset Allocation Game.  Identify your priorities.  You can add comments, mark specific locations on a map and add new priorities.

Create a budget.  Allocate funding across multiple priorities.


Prioritize alternative solutions.  There are different ways to address a need, so how would do it?


After you complete all of the steps, you can see how your input compares with others. If you think that participating in online polls or going to public workshops doesn’t make a difference, consider this ­ based on surveys, web and public meeting input, over $700 million in multi­modal projects were included in the final 2035 Long Range Transportation Plan.  Being in the Plan doesn’t ensure that a project will be completed; however projects are not eligible for any federal funding if they are not included in their area’s official Long Range Transportation Plan.   If you have an opinion, it’s time to share it.  Choose YOUR path for the future.  Editorial by the North Florida TPO www.northfloridatpo.com This article can be found at: http://www.metrojacksonville.com/article/2013­dec­choose­your­path­ the­best­transportation­investments

Make better use of the skyway, run it later so people can eat downtown

Safety

Reduce fatal accidents.

Road

Stuck in 1982!!!! Did anyone get memo related to smart growth. Widening roads IS NOT a sign of prosperity, but just the opposite. The region cannot afford to properly maintain current "bloated" transportation infrastructure. So, why does road widening continue to the first solution? This approach is not sustainable or affordable.

Infrastructure improvements that improve the walkability and bikability and public transit of neighborhoods in the urban centers.

Observing our economic and atmospheric climate reveals the need for the encouragement of street trees and community gardens. These together stimulate and resurrect older commercial corridors in communities not aging gracefully. Road diets! Curb extensions, bulb outs/bump outs, pedestrian refuge. All of the above before business killing medians.

Comments on nflrtp.metroquest.com

Transit

Restoring east-west rail service (similar to Amtrak's Sunset Limited) in Florida and pushing high-speed rail throughout the state to make it easier for people and products to connect with our region. Supporting a viable rail solution for longdistance travel in addition to local commuting will assist further with interstate congestion.

Comments on nflrtp.metroquest.com

Transit

Rail. Light/Heavy Rail and Commuter Rail is vital.

Transit

Find a way to coordinate with the future development plans for downtown, and create satellite parking that is accessible via the skyway. Than make the skyway run until 12 a.m. Friday and Saturday, so residents and tourists can USE the downtown and not have to clog the bridges and limited parking downtown.

Transit

In a town like St. Augustine or any town adjacent to water, would look into water taxis and small ferries for pedestrians and bicycles.

Port and commuter train.

Safety

For safety, I would recommend first a speed limit reduction on surface streets. Autos traveling 45 MPH or more will almost always kill a vulnerable road user in a crash. 35 MPH would be a good hard maximum for all urban surface streets.

Comments on nflrtp.metroquest.com

Transit

I wouldn't focus on new mode nor new routes. The major deficiency with our transit service is its service - poor frequency, spans, takes too long. Lots of other places that effectively with any/every mode.

Comments on nflrtp.metroquest.com

Transit

I telecommute/work remotely.

Comments on nflrtp.metroquest.com

Transit

Would use mass transit if better frequency and duration, more reliable, safer. Would use bike if physically separated with barriers or distance from cars.

Transit

It would take 3 buses, and 3 fares, each way to get to work. Not viable.

Transit

Retired, no commute.

I'm not too far from work, but mostly drive and occasionally bike in. Would definitely use mass transit option if it was available with short headways and minimal transfers.

I would ride my bike to work more often if it were safer. I don't ride in the winter because the streets are too dark. It's hazardous enough in the summer. More train transit, then more bus transit, less road widening/construction. We cannot widen our way out of gridlock. I won't use public transport to go to work but I would definitely like more opportunities to leave my cars at home. We would both prefer bus/rail to driving anytime Retired. More housing options near major employment centers. Better non-motorized access in areas of big box development to serve employees of these retailers.


Comments on nflrtp.metroquest.com

We are only as strong as our weakest links, and must provide clean green mobility options for all walks of life and embrace the future. Sidewalks and shade trees may sound like an oversimplification but they work and outlive us all.

Transit Safety

Transit

We feel Passenger Railroad service - Jax to Miami would assist in alleviating many other issues. Thousands of people would use daily. Poor flow from interchanges from Butler Blvd at Gate Pkwy and I-295/9A cause gridlock that halts local traffic flow around the St. Johns Town Center as well. Congestion is similarly bad in the Deerwood Park South office area due to limited ingress and egress options from the area. Professional office at home. I wish I could take a bus from St. Augustine to the University of North Florida for school. Comprehensive planning should access condition of current roadways and bridges as well as congestion/safety issues that exist. Building roads will not make traffic easier. Creating better and easier public transpiration will. Also, increasing bike lanes and encouraging folks to use both public transportation and bikes will. Need more progressive thinkers that make executive decisions.

I work from home but typically travel in 5 o'clock traffic.

Would be great if there was a safer bike or walking route

Would use transit if service was better. I am retired. Make at least 1/2 of the bridges leading to core of city of Jacksonville accessible to peds/bikes. People are currently trying to use them, but at great risk

Improve bus stop locations and amenities. Educate and train drivers on traffic laws for all users. Prioritize ped safety and access to and from stops and major land use generators. Make the transit experience enjoyable, efficient and reliable! Reduce numbers of median openings that allow for left turns, control turns at signaled intersections. Better control access management. Make most vulnerable users a priority, particularly on state highways in the city core. Use technology that can change signal if speeding is detected. Blanding between Wilson & FSCT Kent Campus needs to be more bike and pedestrian friendly with necessary safety improvements. While Riverside-Avondale is a wonderful place to call home, the area immediate S/W needs cost effective traffic buffering/calming. Blanding Northbound becomes Park Street to Brooklyn and Lee Street at the Prime Osborne. San Juan Eastbound effectively becomes Ortega Blvd. N. & E. of the Lakeshore Blvd., the curb-width could be a blessing vs. a curse. A cost effective restriping could gradually modify motorists' behavior and mitigate the long standing, neglected or ignored shock to the system as these roads suddenly narrow once east of U.S. 17. Can the speed limit please be reduced to a max of 35 MPH on both Blanding and San Juan North and East of the Cedar River/Creek bridges? The replacement of both the Matthews and Hart bridges should include transit (light rail) Bike and pedestrian - most important Very important to people working a significant distance from home Important for jobs and the market Very important for our growth. Very, very important with all the expected growth. Bike improvements that serve the East Coast greenway near the ferry Ferry improvements! Including ferry skip replacement, relocation of ferry offices/restrooms, dry-dock of ferry and ferry landing site improvements (short and long term).


Lincolnville Meeting - St. Augustine

Transit

St. Augustine must have a no car downtown. There need to be parking lots outside the city with shuttle bus service around the downtown area. Residential areas need resident parking stickers and visitor parking stickers, like Philadelphia. Need more public transportation in City of St. Augustine: Shuttles, trolleys, buses. Need to keep auto traffic off of narrow historic streets unless you live on that street. Create a West King Street exit on 95 with offsite parking and transit into St. Augustine.

Helps reduce fossil fuel use. I am particularly supportive of alternative fuels. I live at 6 feet above sea level in old St. Augustine. Planning for 2040 with climate change occurring at rates higher than the worst case scenarios, means that reducing greenhouse gas emissions needs to be a top priority. Inner city water taxi and more use of navigable waterways. Bicycle/pedestrian lanes on paths should not run contiguous to the vehicle traffic lanes. All new and replacement traffic signals should include the countdown clock on the walk signal. This is beneficial to vehicular traffic in knowing when the light will change. Enhance commercial vehicle safety enforcement (vehicle safety equipment and traffic enforcement.) Do not add capacity. Make the current capacity more efficient. Make traffic cameras accessible to the public in real time both online and on smart phones. Lobby the legislature to require video recording of each camera. Manage cost by limiting recording retention to 30 days. A priority for AI/FB/Y. Drives tourism and business. Improves quality of life.

Specific bike an bus lanes. Walking paths (side walks) The bus needs an image overhaul. Many people in the community see the bus as only for "second class" citizens. People are also afraid to ride the bus. More frequent schedules and reliability. Certain travel hours at night. Certain routes (lighted) at night. A lot of stops doesn't have seating. Time management. Road construction - early morning or late evening.

It is very disappointing to me and to many of our citizens that we do not have ultrahigh-speed rail. We should not allow a few politicians and special interests stop us from having "bullet trains" between all of our major cities. A bullet train (180 mph or faster) between Atlanta and Jacksonville, between Jacksonville and Orlando and Tampa and between Orlando and Miami is needed and even deserved by the citizens of Florida. Any politician in the way should be voted out of office. Any special interest against this should be boycotted.

With about one mile of linear footage needed, their installation would allow safer passage for bicyclists and pedestrians on a constrained roadway that connects three public schools and countless community services in Ponte Vedra Beach.

The roadway is not needed, it is costly and it will not solve the problem it is supposed to address.

Jacksonville is so spread out that it makes sense to have a commuter rail system to tie the airport, downtown and surrounding communities together.

Transit

Street car has been the plan for this neighborhood for year and it's still the best plan. An certainly not on Pearl Street, which is 99% residential from Downtown to UF Health, but Main Street, as originally planned, is the better avenue. The commercial roads of Main Street and 8th Street should be the avenues considered for street car, and the sky way should not be considered AT ALL. Also the commuter rail line seems to have shifted from the "S Line" which leaves out large areas that are ripe for redevelopment and infill, which commuter rail often shares a symbiotic relationship with. Again, as orgoally planned, I think the S Line is a better route with much higher long term potential. Why the drastic changes from the 2030 Mobility Plan and 2035 LRTP Cost Feasible Plan is anyone's guess. As I understand it, these were designed with significant input from residents. What is recommended now threw a great deal of that away.

Regarding recommendations for the Historic Springfield area, if either a skyway extension or BRT are planned they should not use Pearl St which is residential on both sides with some smattering of business north of 8th. The reasons this is bad are far too many to mention in a brief email. The more appropriate street for the area would be Jefferson but if it must be in the Historic boundaries then use Broad to Boulevard and keep it along the park side not the residential building side. Well, what do I want for our city? I would like to see the following: 1.) A useful intermodal transportation center that allows Amtrak to return to its old terminal facility. We have had 40 years of the Amtrak station on Clifford Lane and, in my opinion, it is too isolated to do any real good for passenger rail in our city. 2.) Commuter rail.


Please add streetcars, particularly in Riverside/Avondale, Springfield, and San Marco, back to the plan. The Riverside night "trolley" service in particular evidences both the need and desire for such services in these areas, and would provide what would seemingly be a more cost effective way to connect these neighborhoods to downtown rather than extending the Skyway. While I would love to see the Skyway system extended, finding viable routes and funding for an above grade track seems nightmarish. Outside of extending it west into Brooklyn, perhaps deeper into San Marco and/or to the stadium area if possible, it would compete rather than complement the other transit options.

e-mail comment

Transit

Additionally, beyond the pure utility of it, having more fake (buses decorated to look like) trolleys is not anything I can see getting excited about. It also does not show any real investment, since the service could end at any time without any visual reminder. The flexibility of such a system does not lend towards transit oriented development (or renovation) either. Usage of S-Line through Springfield- but not as it was with the 2035 plan, but with LRT or Streetcars The S-Line as used for commuter rail in the 2035 plan would be great for developing the areas it runs through but would not lead to fast moving trains. Instead, Light Rail or perhaps extended streetcars would be a better use, which would still allow for the improvement and development possibilities the community was excited about. If anything should be cut from this plan, let it be BRT The proposed BRT lines run parallel to existing rail infrastructure, or through areas that need something spicier than dedicated bus lanes to spark redevelopment. It seems expensive and wasteful, and not at all sexy or desired. Additionally, if it can't be helped, at least have the Arlington line go to the beach.


Frankly, many of the projects in the proposed plan replaced much more viable transportation alternatives that previously existed in the 2035 North Florida TPO LRTP and 2030 Mobility Plan adopted by the City of Jacksonville, born from various community visions of Jacksonville's future mobility needs. On the surface, it appears as though that some might want to fill the 2040 LRTP with projects they know would fail multiple feasibility and cost-benefit tests to instead stack the deck favoring other peripheral roadway projects that do not align with the wants and needs of the community. For instance, replacing the Riverside streetcar detailed in the 2035 LRTP with a Skyway extension to Five Points would surely fail every conceivable feasibility study while the previous streetcar system would likely prove to be very beneficial to the redevelopment of the area. Furthermore, a streetcar line going through Avondale en route to Fairfax would be strongly opposed by neighborhood residents. It seems as though this proposed list was designed to fail. e-mail comment

Transit

These omissions and subsequent replacements are deeply concerning, especially given that they do not align with the award-winning and community-drive 2030 Mobility Plan adopted by the City of Jacksonville. I optimistically hope that these omissions and corresponding replacement projects were simply misunderstood when the suggested 2040 LRTP was introduced. With that said, it seems that all of these projects should be kept within the plan as well as adding additional projects. This way, they all have the opportunity to be studied in greater detail for inclusion into the official 2040 Cost Feasible Plan. With that said, I would STRONGLY encourage that all projects identified in the 2030 Mobility Plan and the bicycle, pedestrian and transit projects previously identified in the 2035 LRTP Cost Feasible Plan ALL be inserted into the 2040 LRTP. I also feel it is necessary to include both a commuter rail and light rail project utilizing the S Line Greenway into the 2040 LRTP. This would allow multiple rail modes and corridors to be judged equally against the proposed commuter rail corridor utilizing existing CSX rail lines currently proposed in the draft version of the 2040 LRTP.


I live in Springfield, just north of downtown Jacksonville, and am alarmed that the street car transit option has been replaced with a skyway transit option, for a number of reasons. 1. There are countless studies showing that street level transit stimulates economic development better than off ground transit. Springfield is a neighborhood in transition, and enthusastically supports street car. I am willing to wager that my neighbors wouldn't enthusiastically support skyway extention, and may instead oppose it all together. We want street car! e-mail comment

Transit

2. Main Street has always been the main, forgive the pun, transit corridor of the community and it should continue to be so. Having raised transit like the skyway travel up a residential street like Pearl Street just doesn't make sense. Main Street, Jefferson Street, and Eighth Streets are the three significant corridors in the community and they should continue to be so. Not to mention the horror Pearl Street property owners would when they saw a skyway system being built along their front yards. I'm sure you can imagine that planning something so impactful like that should require significant residential communication and consensus gathering. Why was the streetcar network that was in the 2030 Mobility Plan and the 2035 LRTP Cost Feasibility Plan eliminated? Not only is a streetcar system more cost effective than the Skyway, they are tourist attractions. Check with San Francisco. In addition, public input was in favor of the streetcar system. A streetcar system running to the Historic Districts of Springfield, San Marco and Riverside will be a real tourist draw, as well as excellent, cost effective transportation around the urban core. It will generate tourism dollars from people riding the streetcar and shopping in the stores and inns that will inevitably develop along the routes. The streetcar system is more economically feasible, and makes more sense in every way. Street level light rail passes the feasibility and costs tests. The elevated Skyway does not.

Two additional Skyway points. 1) The Skyway downtown is an eyesore. It isn’t  pressure washed or painted as needed, and the concrete is filthy. 2) It appears the Skyway extension to Springfield may run down Pearl Street. Is that true? This would destroy an entire street in the National Register Historic District of Springfield, and destroy property values all along the route if it's true. Since you will have a BRT running down Jefferson 2 blocks west, this is not only redundant, but a real waste of taxpayer money to have two systems running the same route and competing for riders. The commuter rail line has been changed from the S-line to existing CSX track. While this can be more cost effective to build than restoring the S-line, areas ideal for infill and redevelopment along the S-line (Durkeeville, Myrtle Avenue, New Springfield and the Springfield Warehouse District) would be bypassed with this plan. From an urban core revitalization standpoint, it makes sense to restore the Sline as planned prior. I hate to feel cynical, but it feels like this new plan will be too expensive to implement, won't get funded, and therefore the money will be spent on more roads to feed urban sprawl instead of meeting mass transit needs. We need to remember that one of the main issues in the Jacksonville 2025 survey was the need for a vibrant downtown. To have that, we need a good mass transit system in and to/from the downtown area.

The streetcar system should be put back into the plan, the elevated Skyway removed, and the S-line restored. The plan was a good one. It should not be changed in this way. Extend the Skyway to Everbank Field, San Marco, and the new development on Riverside Avenue. Improve the bicycle network/paths in and around downtown connecting Springfield with Riverside. Build a streetcar system connecting Springfield with 5 Points in Riverside by going through downtown. Invest in commuter or lite rail.

- SkyWay on connect Downtown to the UF Health medical facilities via Pearl Street. The SkyWay is simply inappropriate in design and scale for the neighborhood, as it would damage the historic fabric and aesthetic of the community, while neglecting to engage street level commercial or pedestrians. Street car is more appropriate, and actually quite desired by the community. In addition, while Pearl Street may be technically viable for street car, the commercial roads of Main Street and 8th Street are the preferred transit routes by the community. Pearl Street is largely residential and quality-of-life may be damaged by fixed transit, while Main Street and/or 8th Street would directly benefit from fixed rail transit. Both are commercial corridors that we are working to revitalize. - Using CSX rail lines for commuter rail rather than the S-Line, neglecting the areas and neighborhoods along the S-Line poised for redevelopment and reinvestment, such as the Springfield Warehouse district or the a fore mentioned area around the UF Health facilities. Please note that street car has been a major priority of this community for years, and we expect it to be moving forward as well.

I personally live on Pearl street and cannot see how running a giant concrete elevated Skyway down my street would any way contribute to the Springfield neighborhood. I would get a concrete pole instead of a parking spot and view not of the historic neighborhood I love so much but of strangers passing by on level with my bedroom window. The Skyway would not even stop near me? If there really are plans to extend the Skyway to UF Health, then I would think that Broad or Jefferson streets are the better choices as they are not in the heart of a residential area. What Springfield needs is more light and quick transportation to areas such as Riverside, the Landing, and the Downtown Core. Jacksonville as a whole needs faster more reliable transportation. I have in the past looked at using public transportation for my commute, but it isn't practical. for me to leave Springfield and travel to Gate Parkway would require too much time and too much effort. This would not even include trying to drop off my child for school first. In a metropolitan area the size of Jacksonville it should not take all day to get from one side of town to the other. It should include more regular use of the lots like the one at the end I JTB to get people downtown for events. Also should have shuttle service from mandarin and the beaches for nights so more people will visit after hours and not have to worry about driving home from downtown drunk. 5 Points Skyway stop is unfeasible. Streetcar, please *Especially given that, the Riverside streetcar format should be brought more in line with the Mobility Plan. *I support the Skyway extentions to Atlantic Boulevard and the Stadium District. Forest Street could probably be incorporated to the Streetcar plan. *Similarly, the Springfield Skyway extension would be great, but could probably be just as well as a cheaper streetcar project (which was, of course, in the Mobility Plan). *Are they really saying there will be streetcar in San Marco in addition to the Skyway extension? Why?

*I would prefer to see the S-line rail project kept, given that it was created through community input, whereas the justification for the change is unclear. The lack of bicycle infrastructure is ridiculous. how can they talk about bike share on one hand yet we still have the third most dangerous streets in the country for bike and pedestrians? Spoke with Drew DeCandis, Clay Clouncil on Aging. Their main focus is coordinating transit with JTA. I'm highly concerned that several of the "replacement" transit ideas won't pass the technical sniff test and that they end up not making the Cost Feasible Plan. For example, how do you get the Skyway under I-95 and to Five Points? If the streetcar already in the COJ Mobility Plan and 2035 LRTP's Cost Feasible Plan is at least three times cheaper to implement and integrates into the context much better, why change to something riskier? Especially without public input?

MJ article on Transit 6/2/14

Same goes for extending the Skyway to UF Health. Great idea in 1975 when the original Skyway planning process was underway. Since BRT is a go down Jefferson/Broad with a stop at UF Health, extending the Skyway parallel a block or two away doesn't really achieve much. We'd just have too systems that will compete for limited ridership at the cost of millions more to the taxpayer. Such a path would also not deliver the needed economic benefits to Main and 8th Streets....the two Springfield streets where mixed-use infill is most desired and feasible. Nevertheless, I'm fine with what's shown being in the Needs Plan. However, I've requested that the Mobility Plan and 2035 LRTP's Cost Feasible Plan transit, bike and ped projects be added to the 2040 Needs Plan as well. This way, they all have the opportunity to be studied in greater detail for inclusion into the official 2040 Cost Feasible Plan. IMO, the worst scenario would be taking out things that made the previous plan (and that the land use component of our comp plan was modified for to allow for TOD along those specific corridors), substituting them with risky expensive alternatives that end up being too unreasonable to make the final plan's list.

There needs to be three distinct core bike paths or lanes that connect downtown with San Marco, Riverside and Springfield. I believe in this town these paths\lanes need physical separation to truly be of benefit or people wont use them. Sharrow's wont work. Drivers ignore them. MJ article on Transit 6/2/14

Bike/Ped

- Riverside Ave or really any street the runs the length up until Roosevelt, it could be College and cut through the park and/or through the underpass park. -For San Marco San Jose to Hendrix is the easiest and most direct route -Springfield not sure as I don't frequent as much but if you give people a safe These could be tied into the Trolly service route planning it could kill two birds maybe? when cities discuss putting in less optimal transit options, it's because the most optimal became infeasible, either financially or politically. Jax hasn't even attempted to put in something optimal, and yet is already "discussing" very lessthan-optimal options for transit. That's a little weird. A skyway to 5 Points? Honestly, what are these people smoking? I don't believe the S-Line should be commuter rail. I get it, there are standard gauge tracks available to use via commuter rail trains/frequency, which in a way is what the area possibly can support, however, a curcvy short line through a neighborhood that is urban by relative standards and is adjacent to downtown, with stops every half mile to mile, is not really what commuter rail is.

The city should grow some balls and put in LRT from downtown going north and create a master plan for growth/TOD, put together some financial option for developers to be incentivized, and let things run their course.

Instead, what happens is a bunch of non-transit people are way overthinking all of these "master plans", getting them way wrong, and not actually implementing them anyway. The city is not in emergency growth mode, and can actually curb emergency runaway growth by better land use plans in the suburbs (i.e. the Mobility Plan). That would afford them time to devote all resources to getting something practical up and running, and THEN working on master plans for citywide growth/transit once there is some sort of direction and a viable option up and running to paint how implementation might work in Jax and what it would result in.

In 2007 I was optimistic about streetcar, commuter rail and modest skyway expansion. That has changed I do not believe we will see any of it. The politicians aren't interested and JTA has sold out to the fake BRT nonsense. For what it's worth I think Jax should put all it's transit efforts into streetcar spreading out from the skyway. After a couple of core area lines are built connect them by converting the skyway into a raised streetcar line.

All projects listed in the Mobility Plan ought to be included in any long-range planning. These were created through considerable effort and take into account years of input from the various neighborhoods. As such, all transit, bike/ped, and road projects from the Mobility Plan and the 2035 LRTP Cost Feasible Plan need to be included for evaluation. Here are some specific thoughts: I support expansion of the Skyway, in particular the Atlantic Boulevard station in San Marco, the Stadium extension, and the Brooklyn extensions. However, I feel that extending the Skyway to Five Points isn't feasible, considering the difficulty of getting under the Fuller Warren Bridge. Instead, the streetcar plans included in the Mobility Plan should be included in the LRTP, especially since it was created with considerable feedback from the community. This would connect Brooklyn to Riverside just as effectively as the Skyway, for a lower cost. In general, the Riverside streetcar plans that appeared in the Mobility Plan should be included in the LRTP, as it was the result of community feedback. Similarly, the Springfield extensions of the Skyway are good, but the Springfield streetcar plan outlined in the Mobility Plan is a cheaper alternative that was created through community feedback, and should be included in the LRTP. The S-Line commuter rail project seems to have been removed. It should remain in the plan for future evaluation. If the commuter rail line is moved elsewhere, a new plan for rail along the S-Line (perhaps light rail) should be explored to serve Durkeeville, Myrtle Avenue, and Springfield and encourage infill. The bike/ped improvements are encouraging, but we need to make sure all improvements included in the Mobility Plan are included.

Jacksonville really needs to bring back a fixed streetcar line connecting Downtown to Riverside/Avondale. Investment in light rail/heavy rail, and commuter rail is key to TOD and a thriving city. Promote mass transit from the Beaches to JTB/I-95. I couldn't commute to work at JTB/Phillips Hwy now in less than 2 hours one way - and that's not realistic.

test Stuck in 1982!!!!!!! Did anyone get memo related to Smart Growth. Widening roads IS NOT a sign of prosperity, but just the opposite. The region can not afford to properly maintain current "bloated" transportation infrastructure. So, why does road widening continue to the FIRST SOLUTION? This approach is not sustainable or affordable.

Safety. My husband was killed at a construction site because his lane suddenly shifted left with only one small sign - no cones, no flashing lights. Just a concrete barrier in the middle of his lane. Infrastructure improvements that improve the walkability and bikability and public transit of neighborhoods in the urban centers. The Skyway would be more valuable if it connected people's homes with the places they want to go. It needs to be expanded or abandoned.

These together stimulate and resurrect older commercial corridors in communities not aging gracefully. Road diets! Curb extensions, bulb outs/bump outs, pedestrian refuge. All of the above before business killing medians. Restoring east-west rail service (similar to Amtrak's Sunset Limited) in Florida and pursuing high-speed rail throughout the state to make it easier for people and products to connect with our region. Supporting a viable rail solution for long-distance travel in addition to local commuting will assist further with interstate congestion. Rail. Light/Heavy Rail and Commuter Rail is vital. Find a way to coordinate with the future development plans for downtown, and create satilite parking that is accessible via the skyway. Than make the skyway run until 12:00 am friday and Saturday, so residents and tourists can USE the downtown and not have to clog the bridges and limited parking downtown. None

For safety, I would recommend first a speed limit reduction on surface streets. Autos travelling 45 MPH or more will almost always kill a vulnerable road user in a crash. 35 MPH would be a good hard maximum for all urban surface streets. I wouldn't focus on a new mode nor new routes. The major deficiency with our transit service is its service - poor frequency, spans, takes too long. Lots of other places do that effectively with any/every mode.

Would use mass transit if better frequency and duration, more reliable, safer. Would use bike if physically separated with barriers or distance from cars. It would take 3 buses, and 3 fares, each way to get to work - not viable.

I would ride my bike to work more often if it were safer. I don't ride in the winter because the streets are too dark. It's hazardous enough in the summer. More train transit, then more bus transit, less road widening/construction. We cannot widen our way out of gridlock. I won't use public transport to go to work but I would definitely like more opportunities to leave my cars at home. We would both prefer bus/rail to driving any time.

More housing option near major employment centers. Better non motorized access in areas of big box development to serve employees of these retailers. We are only as strong as our weakest links, and must provide clean green mobility options for all walks of life and embrace the future Sidewalks and shade trees may sound like an oversimplification but they work and out live us all. I'd gladly commute by bike & public transit if we could retrofit bridges with pedestrian/bike lanes and improve & expand public transit times We feel Passenger Railroad service---Jax to Miami would assist in alleviating many other issues. Thousands of people would use Daily. Poor flow from interchanges from Butler Blvd at Gate Pkwy and I-295/9A cause gridlock that halts local traffic flow around the St. Johns Town Center as well. Congestion is similarly bad in the Deerwood Park South office area due to limited ingress and egress options from the area. Professional office at home

comprehensive planning should access condition of current roadways and bridges as well as congestion/safety issues that exist. Building roads will not make traffic easier. Creating a better and easier public transportation will. Also, increasing bike lanes and encouraging folks to use both public transportation and bikes will. Need more progressive thinkers that make executive decisions. I work from home, but typically travel in 5 o'Clock traffic.
