Clay Kaserne faces mobility challenges, including an inefficient vehicular network, pedestrian and bicycle connectivity and the need for a connected open space network. Addressing these challenges, this Transportation Development Plan lays out an executable strategy to achieve sustainable mobility recommendations that embrace Net Zero initiatives. The Plan outlines multi-modal configurations and alternative mobility modes, promoting energy conservation, as well as a healthy workplace.
Clay Kaserne will transition from an auto-dominated environment to mixed mobility modes incorporating automobiles, buses, bicycles, and pedestrians. Promoting a healthier lifestyle and safer working environment, pedestrian destinations will be better connected with pathway alignments, improved sidewalks and corresponding landscape development, lighting, and signage. Major east-west and north-south pedestrian and bicycle corridors are delineated to encourage cross-installation walking and biking with less dependence on driving. All of these initiatives play a significant role in reducing auto-related traffic, noise and pollution, while also enhancing safety, visual appearance, and operational characteristics of the mobility network. Recommended improvements include over twenty projects across the Installation, including: upgraded streets to promote more efficient circulation; new and/or upgraded parking facilities; enhanced pedestrian and bike connectivity; and an expanded open space network. A phasing strategy organizes the implementation of projects to achieve the mobility vision addressing priority and logistics.
Project achievement and vision alignment provides substantiation and justification for implementation funding. Vision alignment is achieved from the evaluation of all projects against the goals and objectives of the Transportation Development Plan, Real Property Vision Plan, and Net Zero Energy Installation Plan.
