Connectivity

TTD capital projects will become part of a Basin-wide transportation system that also connects with Northern California and Nevada roads, trails and transit. Stakeholders in both states are developing the regional plan together as the Trans Sierra Transportation Coalition.

Location

Tahoe Basin-wide, 200,000 residents and visitors use the transportation infrastructure on an average busy day.
Responding to this demand, the TTD helps to identify, develop and implement road, shared-use trail and transit solutions.
The current TTD projects support the Mobility 2035, as approved in 2012 by the Tahoe Metropolitan Planning Organization (TMPO).



Goals



By reducing congestion, all the TTD projects improve access to Tahoe recreation, encouraging tourism in and beyond the Basin.

Safety is always a priority. Better traffic flow means fewer collisions. Dedicated areas make travel safer for cyclists and pedestrians.
Mobility choices that cut private car use and related emissions and particulate run-off will help restore air quality and lake clarity.

Process

In broad terms, there are four steps to delivering a TTD project. A Project Development Team (PDT) guides the process. Activities, performed by a larger Project Team, may involve disciplines and individuals from outside agencies and representatives from community groups. The four steps, in more detail, often cover:



Step 1
Initiation
• preparing Project Initiation Document (PID) and report with:
  - traffic study and preliminary environmental analysis
  - initial Purpose and Need statement
  - alternate approaches evaluated per design standards
• beginning inter-agency coordination
• beginning community outreach
Step 2
Approval and
Environmental
Documentation
• redefining Purpose and Need, alternatives
• performing topographic survey, engineering and environmental studies
• providing project report and environmental documentation
• continuing community outreach
Step 3
Design and
Pre-construction
• selecting preferred alternative
• completing detailed design, permitting and agreements
• developing plans, specifications and estimate package (PS & E)
• advertising for bids and awarding project
Step 4
Construction
• building project
• complying with mitigation and monitoring
• celebrating completion
