Diverse transportation stakeholders joined us for a great workshop to find solutions for Highway 22.
On July 29, the Alliance was excited to host a workshop with consultant Nelson\Nygaard and many local stakeholders and community representatives. Nelson\Nygaard has applied their methodology to many resort towns and gateway communities including Yosemite, Park City, Zion NP, and are a nationally renowned leader in environmentally and socially conscious transportation planning.
The focus of this workshop was to present an overview of Nelson\Nygaard’s process and to give them a chance to both frame the challenges we face and receive input from our community on how best to address those challenges. Following a presentation from N\N’s principal Tom Brennan and engineer Mike Riebe, the group was split into two breakout groups. The first group workshopped ideas around traffic demand management (increasing transit utilization and other methods to reduce single-occupancy vehicle usage) and the other group focused on the 22/390 corridors and the challenges and opportunities present in each. After approximately 30 minutes, the groups switched rooms and participated in the other workshop. This event was a key piece in Nelson\Nygaard’s process and will guide them in their next steps. Stay tuned for more updates!
We at the Alliance would like to thank all those in attendance at the workshop for their valuable contributions. We had a great turnout with representatives from WYDOT, Town of Jackson, Teton County, START, the Teton Transportation Coalition, and many other engaged community members. Thank you so much for your time and input!
