The US 92/ISB Corridor Management Master Plan (CMMP) built on the master plan concept by taking the elements of a typical planning study and combining them with the dynamic nature of this urban corridor, which is the heart of Daytona Beach. There is an influx of public and private investments in infrastructure, infill, redevelopment and new development opportunities along the US 92/ISB corridor, unlike any other within District 5. Benesch led the development of the CMMP, which helped define a more unified process to organizing the future look and feel of the ISB Corridor.
The extent of these projects within a compact urban setting reached beyond the typical scope of a corridor planning study by developing a more comprehensive master planning study, including an implementation program to guide and coordinate FDOT safety, enhancement, transit, congestion management and economic development investments, as well as the private sector equivalents, along the ISB corridor between I-4 and SR A1A/Atlantic Avenue. The CMMP evaluated the myriad studies, proposals and regulations to ensure cohesiveness of the improvements to the overall corridor through the horizon year 2035, including travel demand modeling to incorporate proposed developments and their effect on the future year level of service and integration of modified land use policies with existing proposed infrastructure investments.
The goal of the CMMP was to create a seamless multimodal connectivity. The master plan coordinated the combined impacts of more than 50 projects and identified gaps within the proposed multimodal network between planned and committed projects and those already constructed. Benesch’s recommendations to alleviate these concerns included connecting bicycle and pedestrian gaps, improving bicycle facilities, widening the sidewalks in select areas, adjusting speed limits where needed and the adding raised median islands in select areas. The study was guided by a Project Visioning Team (PVT) and interviews with major area stakeholders. There were also two public meetings.
