Ridout Lumber and other businesses impacted by the closing have expressed concern about the loss of this crossing. Alternatives to simply closing this location have been researched, as follows: Installing safety improvements (lights and gates) at this crossing. Installation costs would be expected to be in the range of $500,000 to $600,000. Ongoing maintenance and insurance costs would be expected as well. 2. Construction of a connector street along the railroad, to connect the Township St. crossing and the Poplar Street Crossing. This cost is estimated to be $650,000 but would have less operating cost than option 1. 3. Closure of the Frisco Avenue crossing in lieu of the Garrett Drive crossing. This closure would provide a safety benefit for the Razorback Greenway by also eliminating the trail crossing. Bicycle and pedestrian crossings 650 feet to the north and 1350 to the south are available, but the loss of the vehicular connection would likely result in more traffic on Wilson Avenue and Maple Street as traffic enters and exits the University of Arkansas campus. In addition, the low water crossing of Scull Creek floods frequently; during flooding events the properties south of the creek and east of the railroad would not be accessible. A Frisco Avenue connection to Maple Street is feasible and would mitigate this issue. Costs for closure at this location would be minimal, unless improvements to the low water crossing or the connection of Frisco to Maple Street were made. These costs were not estimated, but could be provided if the Committee wishes to further consider this option. Mailing Address: 113 W. Mountain Street www.fayetteville-ar.gov Fayetteville, AR 72701 These options have been shared with the Arkansas and Missouri Railroad and with Ridout lumber; feedback received, if any, will be shared with the Committee.

Two study intersections were analyzed as part of this study: Archibald Yell Boulevard/South Street and Archibald Yell Boulevard/College Avenue/Rock Street. Garver assessed the corridor with future volumes under existing four -lane typical and the proposed three -lane typical. This document presents recommendations that were identified based on the following: • Existing Conditions — Garver evaluated the existing conditions and reviewed peak hour turning movement counts at key intersections, which were collected on March 2017. • Traffic Forecast — Garver determined an annual growth rate for the area using data from multiple resources including historic average daily traffic (ADT) data from ARDOT website and information from the Northwest Arkansas Regional Planning Commission's (NWARPC) travel demand models. • Volume Development — Garver adjusted raw volumes to develop 2020 Existing volumes. The annual growth rate was applied to 2020 Existing volumes to develop 2040 Design Year traffic volumes. • Operational Analysis — Synchro 10 and SimTraffic software were used to analyze the level of service (LOS) and queue lengths for 2020 Existing conditions, 2040 No Build conditions, and 2040 Build conditions. • Conclusions and Recommendation — After performing the traffic analysis, conclusions and recommendations were formed and provided in the study. 2.0 Existing Conditions The study segment of Archibald Yell Boulevard spans from Martin Luther King, Jr. Boulevard to Mountain Street. The existing corridor is four -lane undivided with a posted speed limit of 35 miles per hour (mph) and carries approximately 17,000 vehicles per day (vpd). There are two signalized intersections along the study corridor located at Martin Luther King, Jr. Boulevard and at Mountain Street. Figure 1 exhibits the study area. The study intersections at South Street and at College Avenue/Rock Street are currently stop -controlled on the minor approaches as shown in Figure 2. The intersection of Archibald Yell Boulevard at South Street features a shared left -through lane and a shared through -right lane on the southbound and northbound approaches. A shared left -through -right lane is provided on the eastbound and westbound approaches. The Archibald Yell Boulevard/College Avenue/Rock Street intersection is a five -leg intersection with Rock Street running in the east -west direction and College Avenue tying to Archibald Yell Boulevard on the south. The minor approaches at Rock Street and at College Avenue features a shared left -through -right lane. The major approaches along Archibald Yell Boulevard consists of a shared left -through lane and a shared through -right lane.

The traffic counts were processed to determine 2017 AM and PM peak hour turning movement volumes, peak hour factors, and percentages of heavy vehicles for the study intersections. A seasonal adjustment factor was applied to the peak hour turning movement base counts to determine adjusted peak hour volumes. Refer to Appendix A — Traffic Data for traffic count data. 3.1 Development of 2020 Existing Volumes To develop 2020 Existing volumes, a traffic growth rate for Archibald Yell Boulevard was applied to the adjusted 2017 peak hour turning movement volumes. Review of the 2017 ADT and 2019 ADT for Archibald Yell Boulevard, obtained from ARDOT website, depict a 5% decrease in traffic growth between those years. Therefore, no growth was assumed for Archibald Yell Boulevard between 2017 and 2020. The 2017 volumes were used as 2020 Existing volumes which are shown in Figure 3. 3.2 Traffic Forecast A traffic forecast was conducted along Archibald Yell Boulevard to develop future volumes for the study intersections. From the ARDOT website, two permanent count stations were identified within the study corridor. Table 1 shows the historic ADT data for each of these count stations. Station 720293 has two missing years of data. Several methods were investigated to project future volumes. First, the trend function was used in Excel to project 2020 and 2040 traffic volumes based on the historic volumes along with the 2019 ADT. This function is based on the equation y=mx+b, where y represents the traffic volume and x represents the year. For these calculations, the true "b" value was selected. A second source utilized for traffic projections was information from NWARPC travel demand model for design years 2010 and 2040, and a third source used was the growth rate information for Archibald Yell Boulevard from the Fayetteville Mobility Plan. A summary of the projected ADT and growth rates yielded from the various methods for each count station is shown in Table 2. As shown, the recommended annual growth rate for the study area was determined to be 1.60% based on the average of the growth rates (weighted by volume).

Garver Project No. 20T21030 Page 6 CITY OF FAYETTEVILL ARKANSAS 4.0 Operational Analysis The study area was evaluated under 2020 Existing and 2040 No Build to establish a baseline for comparison for the build alternatives. Level of Service (LOS) was the key performance measure used for the analysis and was determined along the Archibald Yell Boulevard corridor as well as at key intersections within the study area. LOS is a qualitative measure used to depict operational conditions within a traffic stream or at an intersection. LOS is typically designated into six categories. These range from LOS A indicating free -flow, low density, or nearly negligible delay conditions to LOS F where demand exceeds capacity and large queues are experienced. A graphical representation of LOS is presented in Figure 5. For this study, LOS D is the threshold for acceptable level of service for any movement at a major intersection. Operational analyses were conducted using Synchro 10 and SimTraffic software according to the Highway Capacity Manual 6th Edition (HCM) methodology and SimTraffic methodology. The results from the operational analyses of 2020 Existing conditions and 2040 future No Build conditions for the study corridor are discussed in the following subsections.

The corridor contains two signalized intersections, multiple unsignalized intersections, and many driveways to businesses. Existing conditions were analyzed using 2020 Existing volumes. The signalized intersections at Martin Luther King, Jr. Boulevard and at Mountain Street were modeled with current signal timings provided by the City of Fayetteville. Under Existing conditions, the segments along Archibald Yell Boulevard were analyzed as urban street segments. For segment analysis, the HCM methodology uses travel speed for through vehicles and volume -to -capacity (v/c) ratio as the basis for determining LOS. The results of this analysis are shown in Garver Project No. 20T21030 CARVER CITY OF FAYETTEVILL ARKANSAS Archibald Yell Boulevard Improvements Traffic Study Table 3. The complete results are provided in Appendix B — Operational Analysis Results. According to the results of this analysis, the study segment showed LOS C or better for both peak periods in 2020 Existing conditions. Table 3: Roadway Segment Analysis — 2020 Existing Conditions 4.1.2 Intersection Analysis For intersections, the HCM methodology uses control delay, measured in average seconds of delay per vehicle, as the basis for determining LOS. Control delay at an intersection is the average stopped time per vehicle traveling through the intersection plus the movements at slower speeds due to the vehicles moving up in the queue or slowing upstream of the approach. Table 4 provides the LOS delay thresholds as stated in HCM 6th Edition, pages 19-16 and 20-6. Table 4: Thresholds for Control Delay at Intersections ..

The HCM methodology evaluates each intersection independently while Sim Traffic microsimulation allows the user to analyze intersection operations both individually and in Garver Project No. 20T21030 Page 10 CITY OF FAYETTEVILL ARKANSAS Archibald Yell Boulevard Improvements Traffic Study context of the entire study network. Additionally, microsimulation gives the user a powerful visualization tool to trace any sources of vehicle delay and queuing as well as the opportunity to perform multiple simulation runs with varying traffic loading within the peak hour to account for the expected variability within a system. This variation also accounts for the various types of drivers (aggressiveness, gap acceptance tolerance) and vehicles (performance on grades, general acceleration/ deceleration). Finally, microsimulation provides the best means to demonstrate the impacts of queues on nearby intersections. The results of the two study intersections based on HCM methodology and SimTraffic methodology are summarized in Tables 5 and 6. The complete results are provided in Appendix B - Operational Analysis Results. The HCM methodology showed no results for the intersection at College Avenue/Rock Street, since it does not support intersections with more than four approaches. The intersection at South Street showed LOS C or better for all approaches according to the HCM methodology for both peak hours.

The 95th percentile queue lengths obtained from the Synchro models according to HCM methodology are shown in Table 7. The queue lengths shown in the table are expressed in terms of feet by assuming an average vehicle length of 25 feet since the HCM methodology yields queues in terms of vehicles. Table 8 shows the 95th percentile queue lengths in feet based on the SimTraffic methodology. There are no dedicated left -turn or right -turn lanes provided at the study intersections in the Existing conditions. The results of both methodologies did not show any significant queueing at the intersection at South Street. For the intersection at College Avenue/Rock Street, the SimTraffic results showed some queueing on the northbound approach on College Avenue and extensive queueing on the westbound approach on Rock Street in the AM peak hour.

The signal timings at existing signalized intersections were optimized. The 2040 No Build traffic volumes were used, and the analyses were performed using the same methodology and assumptions as were used for the 2020 Existing conditions. The results are described in the following subsections. Garver Project No. 20T21030 Page 12 GARVER CITY OF FAYETTEVILLE_ ARKANSAS 4.2.1 Roadway Segment Analysis Archibald Yell Boulevard Improvements Traffic Study As with 2020 Existing conditions, the Archibald Yell Boulevard was analyzed as urban street segments according to the HCM methodology. The results are summarized in Table 9. The complete results are provided in Appendix B - Operational Analysis Results. According to the results of this analysis, the corridor experienced good level of service in the northbound direction for both peak periods. In the southbound direction, the corridor performed adequately in the AM peak hour, but showed poor LOS E in the PM peak hour. This is likely due to the failing performance of the southbound approach at the Archibald Yell Boulevard/Martin Luther King, Jr. Boulevard intersection in the year 2040 as exhibited in Table 10. The SimTraffic simulation show extensive southbound queueing at the Martin Luther King, Jr. Boulevard intersection. Table 9: Roadway Segment Analysis — 2040 No Build Conditions 4.2.2 Intersection Analysis The results from the 2040 No Build intersection analysis are shown in Tables 10 and 11. The complete results are provided in Appendix B - Operational Analysis Results. Both methodologies showed the operation of the study intersections along Archibald Yell Boulevard to deteriorate by Design Year 2040. Multiple movements on the minor approaches are failing during at least one peak hour. The results show the intersection at Martin Luther King, Jr. Boulevard will perform poorly in 2040.

Extensive queues are exhibited on the westbound approach on Rock Street and northbound approach on College Avenue. As previously mentioned, the SimTraffic simulation shows extensive southbound queueing at the Martin Luther King, Jr. Boulevard intersection which extends to the School Avenue intersection in the PM peak hour. In addition, the simulation also shows significant queueing in the PM peak hour for the northbound left -turn movement and the eastbound approach at the intersection of Archibald Yell Boulevard and School Avenue.

The Build alternative condition includes new signals and pedestrian crossings at South Street, a road diet along Archibald Yell Boulevard reducing the roadway dedicated to vehicles from four lanes to three lanes, and improvements to the intersection at College Avenue/Rock Street. The Build alternative was evaluated for 2020 and 2040 design years. A proposed concept of the improvements to the intersection at College Avenue/Rock Street consists of intersection realignment with pedestrian crossings as shown in Figure 6. Traffic from Rock Street on the west side of Archibald Yell Boulevard is no longer able to cross Archibald Yell Boulevard to continue east on Rock Street and vice versa. Other restricted movements with the proposed concept are northbound left -turn from Archibald Yell Boulevard to Rock Street, northbound left -turn from College Avenue to Rock Street, and eastbound and westbound left -turns from Rock Street to Archibald Yell Boulevard.

Garver Project No. 20T21030 Page 17 GARVER CITY OF FAYETTEVILLE ARKANSAS 5.2 Operational Analysis — 2020 Build Conditions Archibald Yell Boulevard Improvements Traffic Study As with Existing and No Build conditions, the study intersections were analyzed using Synchro and its companion SimTraffic software. For the 2020 Build conditions, signal timings for the proposed traffic signal at South Street were optimized and coordinated with the traffic signal at Mountain Street. The results are described in the following subsections. 5.2.1 Roadway Segment Analysis As part of the Build conditions, a road diet was proposed for the Archibald Yell Boulevard converting the existing four -lane undivided roadway to a three -lane roadway. The three -lane roadway extends from north of Martin Luther King, Jr. Boulevard to College Avenue/Rock Street. Lane configurations at Martin Luther King Jr. Boulevard intersection remained the same as Existing conditions. The Archibald Yell Boulevard corridor was analyzed as urban street segments according to the HCM methodology. The results are summarized in Table 5. The complete results are provided in Appendix B - Operational Analysis Results. According to the results of this analysis, the segment between South Street and Mountain Street showed LOS C or better for both directions during both peak hours. For the segment between Martin Luther King, Jr. Boulevard and South Street, the northbound direction performed adequately for both peak hours, however, the southbound direction showed poor LOS E in the PM peak hour.

Both intersections will be stop -controlled in the minor approaches. In addition, the intersection at South Street will be signalized and left -turn storage as added on the minor approaches. The results from the 2020 Build intersection analysis are shown in Tables 16 and 17. The complete results are provided in Appendix B- Operational Analysis Results. The HCM methodology showed no results for the intersection at College Avenue/Rock Street (East), since it does not support the proposed intersection geometry, and adequate LOS C or better for both peak hours for the intersection at College Avenue/Rock Street (West). The results also show the intersection at South Street will experience overall LOS C for both peak hours with LOS E for multiple movements on the minor approaches. The results according to the SimTraffic methodology show LOS C or better for all study intersections for both peak hours with the exception of the eastbound movement at College Avenue/Rock Street (West) which shows failing LOS F during the AM peak hour. The SimTraffic results for this movement varies from the HCM results due to the low volume. The SimTraffic implies that delay may occur despite the low volume.

The analyses were performed using the same methodology and assumptions as were used for the 2020 Build conditions. The results are described in the following subsections. 5.3.1 Roadway Segment Analysis The Archibald Yell Boulevard was analyzed as urban street segments according to the HCM methodology. The results are summarized in Table 20. The complete results are provided in Appendix B - Operational Analysis Results. According to the results of this analysis, the segment between South Street and Mountain Street showed LOS C or better for both directions during both peak hours. For the segment between Martin Luther King, Jr. Boulevard and South Street, the northbound direction performed adequately for both peak hours, however, the southbound direction showed poor LOS E and LOS F in the AM and PM peak hour, respectively, which is most likely due to the poor performance of the southbound approach at the Martin Luther King, Jr. Boulevard intersection as shown in Table 21. The SimTraffic simulation shows extensive southbound queueing at the Martin Luther King, Jr. Boulevard intersection.

The complete results are provided in Appendix B - Operational Analysis Results. Table 20 shows LOS C or better for all movements at College Avenue/Rock Street (West) according to the HCM methodology. At the South Street intersection, multiple movements will operate at failing LOS E/F in the AM peak hour with overall LOS D. In the PM peak hour, this intersection operates overall at LOS C with LOS E for the eastbound shared thru-right movement. At the Martin Luther King, Jr. Boulevard intersection, the HCM results show the southbound approach will fail in 2040 similar to the No Build conditions. According to the SimTraffic methodology, the majority of the movements for the study intersections will operate adequately with the exception of failing LOS E/F for the northbound approach from College Avenue at the College Avenue/Rock Street (East) intersection and for the eastbound approach at the College Avenue/Rock Street (West) intersection during both peak hours. The SimTraffic results for the eastbound approach College Avenue/Rock Street (West) varies from the HCM results due to the low volume. The SimTraffic implies that delay may occur despite the low volume. The results also show the intersection at Martin Luther King, Jr. Boulevard will perform poorly in 2040.

Based on the results of the analysis, the following were concluded: • The proposed road diet will perform adequately through the year 2040 for the segment of Archibald Yell Boulevard between School Avenue and Mountain Street. The results show failing LOS for the segment between South Street and Martin Luther King, Jr. Boulevard specifically for the southbound direction. This is likely due to failing performance of the intersection of Archibald Yell Boulevard and Martin Luther King, Jr. Boulevard by the year 2040. The segment between Martin Luther King, Jr. and School Avenue should remain two lanes in each direction. • The proposed signals at South Street intersection will provide acceptable level of service with LOS D or better for all movements through the year 2040. • The proposed conceptual improvements for the intersection at College Avenue/Rock Street will improve the performance of the intersection when compared to No Build conditions. However, delay and queues may still develop on the minor approaches. Garver Project No. 20T21030 Page 26 GARVER F GARVER N W + E S 0 a v A > Q A v C7 v Wash.
