Name
Downtown Huntersville Transportation System Plan (DHTSP)
Description
The purpose of the DHTSP will be to inventory, analyze and assess the existing transportation system within the Downtown and determine what improvements (both operational and capital) will be required to accommodate growth and development anticipated over the next 10 to 15 years. The plan will study all modes of transportation, including both motorized (vehicular, public transit and rail) and non-motorized (pedestrian and bicycle) and analyze future transportation system operations based upon a “build-out” land development scenario for the downtown.

Downtown Transportation System Plan Public Workshop a Meeting Goers Sitting at TableSuccess

Approximately 40 people attended a Public Workshop for the DT Transportation System Plan (DTSP) on June 5th from 6 to 8 p.m. at the Old Huntersville Theater in downtown Huntersville. After a presentation by project consultants, attendees had the opportunity to respond to polling questions and participate in a mapping exercise to identify issues to be addressed in the plan. According to Zac Gordon, project manager for the plan: “The meeting was a great success and provided town staff and consultants with excellent input that will be used in preparing the DTSP. The DTSP will identify transportation system improvements that will be needed to accommodate growth and development in the downtown by the year 2030." An October completion date for the plan is anticipated.

The public is encouraged to visit the DHTSP project website to learn more about the plan.

Downtown Transportation System Plan Purpose

The purpose of the DHTSP will be to inventory, analyze and assess the existing transportation system within the Downtown, view the Downtown Huntersville Transportation System Plan Study Area (PDF) and determine what improvements (both operational and capital) will be required to accommodate growth and development anticipated over the next 10 to 15 years. The plan will study all modes of transportation, including both motorized (vehicular, public transit and rail) and non-motorized (pedestrian and bicycle) and analyze future transportation system operations based upon a “build-out” land development scenario for the downtown.

Recommended transportation system improvements may include: road widening(s), additional street connections, bike and pedestrian accommodations, signalization, signal timing, lighting and signage.

The DHTSP was recommended by the Town of Huntersville 2030 Community Plan, adopted by the Town Board in June 2011.
