We worked with the District of Saanich to provide transportation planning and design expertise in developing a long-term vision for the Shelbourne Street Corridor. The project goal was to identify design options that could be implemented to transform Shelbourne Street, under the guiding principles of the Shelbourne Corridor Action Plan.
The plan focuses on multi-modal accommodation including prioritizing cyclists, pedestrians and transit; environmental, landscaping/aesthetic treatments; and incorporating/supporting future land uses. The project examined a variety of design options. These include the design width of sidewalks, bicycle and vehicle travel lanes, an examination of current and enhanced standard options for such travel modes, including the possible use of shared versus separated pedestrian and bicycle right of ways, the design and integration within the right of way and transit stops, parking where feasible, as well as consideration of the mobility needs of seniors and the disabled. All design options were evaluated with transportation modelling, both using Synchro, and Vissim
