Local input wanted on SV traffic congestion study

Arizona Department of Transportation

The City of Sierra Vista and the Arizona Department of Transportation will host a public meeting on Feb. 7 to receive input for an ongoing study to identify options for improving traffic flow by reducing the number of motorists who drive alone to work or school.

The study team for the Sierra Vista Transportation Efficiency Study, which began in June 2012, has recently administered a survey to workers at the city’s major employers and to the general public. The results have been tabulated to better understand people’s habits and opinions regarding their commutes.
Information from these surveys is being used to develop a Travel Reduction Plan for the city.

The study team will provide updated information on the results of the surveys and share information on preliminary strategies for addressing traffic congestion in Sierra Vista over the next 20 years through programs designed to meet short-, medium- and long-term needs. Two of the city’s goals focused on reducing reliance on single-occupancy vehicle trips.

The meeting is scheduled from 5:30 – 7:30 p.m. at the Windemere Hotel, 2047 South Highway 92 in Sierra Vista. The formal presentation is scheduled for 5:45 p.m. with a question-and-answer session afterward.

Members of the study team, comprised of planners from the City of Sierra Vista and ADOT, will be available to answer questions. Display boards and hand-out materials will also provide information on the study.

The federally funded study, administered by ADOT, was initiated by the city as part of their Strategic Leadership Plan, which identified five transportation goals to meet quality of life needs in the community.
