Multimodal Planning

Multimodal/Land Use Studies

As a service to our members, SPC does multimodal /land-use studies in order to provide technical assistance for community-based project planning.

  • In 2015, SPC staff completed the study “Mon Valley Places”, which examined the potential economic and land use benefits of improved transit service in the Lower Mon Valley area of Allegheny County.
  • The Route 51 Transit Signal Priority Simulation Modeling and Transit Stop Improvements Study used 3D computer modeling to simulate advanced transit technology and demonstrate the potential for advanced traffic signals to provide faster trips for transit commuters in the southern area of Allegheny County.
  • SPC provided technical assistance to the PennDOT Results Oriented Planning Catalyst Team for the development of the Route 65 Corridor Transportation/Land Use Planning Pilot project.  The planning initiative coordinated transportation and land-use planning efforts between 23 communities in the Ohio River Valley in Allegheny and Beaver Counties with transportation improvement project planning of PennDOT District 11-0.
  • Staff participated on the steering committee for the establishment of the City of Pittsburgh Eco-Innovation District, a transit/land-use/economic development planning effort designed to provide value capture mechanisms for the Uptown neighborhood.

Operations and Safety Assessment

In 2015, SPC developed a new corridor study approach that focuses on operations and safety in tandem.  An Operations and Safety Assessment (OSA) is a hybrid between a traditional corridor study and a Road Safety Audit.  In August, SPC completed its first OSA in Butler County on State Routes 68 and 528.  This 14.5 mile segment of roadway was analyzed over five days to identify operations and safety improvements.  Some of the improvements suggested to the roadway owners include updating school crossings, resurfacing sections of roadway, centerline rumble strips, and driveway realignments. Implementation of some of these suggestions has already begun.
