Carriage Drive & Lauppe Lane Safe Schools Corridor Plan
Over the past three years, the three schools located along the Carriage Drive/Lauppe Lane corridor have experienced a 25% enrollment increase and the large majority of students arrive to school in cars. The increase in enrollment has contributed to already high peak vehicular, pedestrian, bicycle and parking demands, increased vehicular speeds, midblock and uncontrolled pedestrian crossings, and school ingress and egress concerns.
The project will evaluate the Carriage Drive and Lauppe Lane corridor and on-site school circulation to identify appropriate, cost-effective measures to mitigate deficiencies. The scope of this project includes community engagement to identify community based solutions and will tailor the ultimate design to the needs and desires of both the residential and school communities. Once complete, the Plan will be used to seek final design and construction funding.
This project is anticipated to begin in October 2018, and public engagement will commence in Spring 2019.
