The ‘ Nuestro Barrio ‘ Multi-Modal Plan is a multimodal mobility study of conditions for people walking, biking, or taking transit in and around the Universidad de Sagrado Corazon in Santurce. The project includes an analysis of barriers to multimodal mobility, preparing guidelines for transit-oriented development (TOD) projects, and proposing redesigns for streets incorporating multimodal infrastructure. The outcome of this project includes redesigning the university’s transit system and bicycle-friendly campus facilities.
Additionally, the project assesses existing infrastructure and prioritizes new projects to increase accessibility and safety. This initiative aims to provide students with a safe, convenient, and sustainable way to move within the campus and surrounding neighborhoods.
The team has adopted an interdisciplinary approach to understanding the full context of multimodal mobility at the university site. Initial research includes conducting stakeholder interviews, analyzing existing land use patterns and transportation networks, and exploring various mobility solutions. Furthermore, the team has conducted extensive outreach to engage stakeholders in defining new mobility goals for the university campus area.
The project also involves creating design strategies that address current infrastructure deficiencies while looking ahead to future growth at the university. The resulting plan is expected to create an integrated and coordinated system of multimodal transportation networks to meet current and future demand while providing sustainable, equitable, and safe mobility options for all users. The team hopes this project will provide a framework for transforming the campus area into a vibrant, connected community with improved access to jobs, educational opportunities, and resources. In addition, the project will also be used to inform policy decisions related to land uses and development in the area.
