Transportation networks greatly impact the quality of life for a community’s residents. Recently, LJB worked with the City of Lima to plan a transformation of its downtown central business district from a network of multi-lane one-way streets and short blocks into an environment that is friendly to pedestrians, bicyclists and motorists. This project is a great example of how a community is leveraging all available resources to restructure a downtown business district into a more sustainable community.
Dan Hoying, a project manager and subject matter expert in emerging trends for roadway and traffic design, will present on this project at this year’s Ohio Transportation Engineering Conference (OTEC).
OTEC is a two-day conference attended by more than 2,800 people from across the state of Ohio. Co-sponsored by the Ohio Department of Transportation and The Ohio State University, the conference addresses the latest policy and technical information, as well as covering new ideas in transportation planning, design and construction.
If you plan to attend OTEC, be sure to add this presentation to your schedule on Tuesday, October 30 from 3-5 p.m.
Innovative Funding Solutions for Today’s Traffic and Safety Problems – Road Diets and Safety.
Dan will be joined by Kirk Niemeyer, the City Engineer for Lima, Ohio, to provide an overview on the transportation planning process for a project that consolidated the state routes within the downtown street network, revised the typical section of one-way streets, and reduced pollution. The presentation will include information on design of intersection operation, modified typical sections, revised parking configuration, loading zones and way-finding. It will also include a presentation by ODOT and project examples from Pickerington and Columbus.
