Gary

The Gary Signal Improvement Project consists of a traffic study of existing signalized intersections within the City of Gary to evaluate warrants and current functionality. The overarching goal is to identify locations for signal removals and locations for upgrading inoperable signals. Preliminarily, the 15th Ave corridor has been identified for signal upgrades due to numerous inoperable signals and heavier traffic volumes. This project proposes to reconstruct traffic signals at 4 intersections along the corridor: 15th Ave & Burr St, 15th Ave & Chase St, 15th Ave & Virgina St, and 15th Ave & Whitcomb Ave. It will include entirely new signal equipment, new signal controllers, pedestrian signal indicators with push button activation, and ADA curb ramp replacements. This funding request includes the traffic study along with design engineering, construction inspection/administration, and traffic signal timing/programming for the 4 reconstructed signals. This project will result in safer, more efficient traffic flows and safer pedestrian crossings at the reconstructed signal locations.

GPTC

This project would fund pilot operations and facility improvements for a rapid bus service focusing on the University Park area, connecting to downtown Gary via the Grant Street corridor and to downtown Hobart and extreme western Portage via Ridge Road and/or Old Ridge Road. This project is born out of GPTC's Title VI service standards and Livable Broadway Regional Plan, along with the transit plan for the City of Hobart. Both GPTC-approved documents identified service standards for Rapid Bus service, with the latter document indicating that the Grant Street corridor has the highest ridership activity outside of the Broadway corridor. The Hobart Transit Plan identified service options connecting downtown Hobart with University Park (and GPTC's Broadway Metro Express). These service targets and ideas would be further studied, and passenger facilities would be proposed based on ridership activity projections. The target Rapid Bus frquency is between 20-30 minutes and feeder service will be introduced as well.
