DDOT’s North-South Streetcar Materials Now Online

At the end of last week, DDOT added the presentation materials from their February public North-South Streetcar meetings to their online library. As a follow up to my previous post, I wanted to make sure residents interested in this initiative were aware of these materials and had an opportunity to review the information prior to the third series of meetings, which are currently scheduled for June 2014. Below is the meeting’s presentation slide deck and more images from the presentation boards.

The boards showing potential street cross sections should be of particular interest to the community, as they suggest how the streetcars could be laid out on particular streetsĀ  — which also suggests how they could impact parking or bike lanes. There were several options shown at the public presentations so that DDOT could get community feedback. I suspect that the options will be narrowed down with fewer options by the third round of public meetings. Below are scenarios A & B.

… and below are scenarios C & D.

… and lastly, the video below of streetcar simulations and videos from various US projects were shown during the second series of public meetings for the North-South Corridor. In these meetings, DDOT examined potential conceptual alignments for the streetcar.
