This policy addresses a procedure through which neighborhoods can be considered for traffic calming measures. Traffic calming is the management of traffic through the use of roadway design features. Traffic management through traffic calming is most effective if the features are both warranted and properly designed. Traffic calming solutions may be warranted where there is a demonstrated need for traffic calming, and where solutions can be identified that will address the need. Not only must the needs be perceived by the neighborhood, but they must also be documented to be substantive. In order for traffic calming strategies to be effective, traffic data collection and analysis must validate that calming needs are legitimate. These traffic studies may include: 1. Speed studies 2. Vehicle and pedestrian counts 3. Through -traffic surveys 4. Accident records Effective solutions for valid needs also require that the selected traffic calming strategy be appropriate for the need. Once an effective strategy for traffic calming has been selected, it should be properly designed in accordance with the relevant design parameters. These should include consideration of: 1. Traffic volume 2. Design speed 3. Design vehicle characteristics 4. Emergency services Although warranted and properly designed traffic calming strategies can have the desired benefits of managing traffic, they also can create disadvantages to adjacent streets and neighborhoods and to the traveling public at large. Traffic calming could have the potential of shifting an existing traffic problem to another street or neighborhood. Traffic calming may also increase delay for emergency response vehicles and can increase long term maintenance costs for the City. Because of the controversy and potential disadvantages, traffic calming should be implemented only with the majority consent of those directly impacted. This policy therefore provides guidelines for the following traffic calming activities: 1. Requests for traffic calming consideration 2. Prioritization of Requests 3. Identification and approval of traffic calming strategies 4. Programming of traffic calming improvements 5. Design of traffic calming projects 6. Evaluation of traffic calming projects REQUESTS FOR TRAFFIC CALMING CONSIDERATION Requests for traffic calming received will be catalogued, and will be assigned to one of three tiers: Tier 1: Proximity to Schools or other significant Points of Interest (1/2-mile walkshed) Tier 2: Obvious cut -through opportunities (Based on engineering best judgement, could be supplemented with traffic count study) Tier 3: Dead-end or disconnected areas of the transportation network. If a citizen requests police patrol enforcement, the request will be forwarded to the Police Department for possible enforcement action. Requests from multiple streets may be grouped together and/or staff may add streets that may be impacted by traffic calming to requests. If such grouping occurs, the requirements of the next section will apply to the grouped streets. PRIORITIZATION OF TRAFFIC CALMING REQUESTS Locations assigned to Tier 1 or Tier 2 will be scheduled for further study upon receipt by the City Engineer of a petition or other affirmative response sigRed by at least one member of seventy- five percent (705%) of the property ownerships facing the street(s) on which the traffic calming study is requested. A block shall consist of every developed property having frontage on the street to be studied between successive intersecting streets. A typical traffic calming petition shall include, at a minimum, a description of the street or streets which are to be included in the calming study and the signature or other written evidence of approval of at least 705% of the property owners on those street(s). Where more than one person is listed as owner for each property, only one person shall be entitled to vote or sign a petition. Likewise, if multiple properties are owned by the same person or persons, the owner(s) will only be entitled to one vote or signature on the petition. This definition of property owner shall apply throughout this policy document. The City staff assigned to administer traffic calming studies will review the petition request for validity and will assess whether other streets may be impacted by implementation of traffic calming strategies. City staff will define the area of potential impact resulting from the traffic calming implementation on a case by case basis. Relevant data to be collected for the study includes: 1. Speed and Volume Counts 2. Accident Experience 3. Distance to schools and other pedestrian generators 4. Pedestrian facilities This data will be used to assign a point value to each Tier 1 and Tier 2 location, as follows: Speed Per 5pts for each MPH > 5MPH above posted speed Volume Per ADT/100 Sidewalks 0-5 5pts if no continuous sidewalk, 2.5pts if one side Accidents 0-5 1 pt for each accident/year at one location School 10pts within quarter -mile radius, 7.5pts if between Walkshed 0-10 quarter- and half -mile radius, 5pts within half -mile radius, 2.5pts if partially in half -mile radius Locations receiving a minimum of 35 points, or that have 85t" percentile speeds above 35 mph will receive further consideration for traffic calming under this program. Locations with 85tn percentile speeds below 30 mph will not receive further consideration reaardless of score. Streets that do not meet these minimum criteria, and dead-end or disconnected streets that are placed in Tier 3 generally will not be considered for structural traffic calming, but may be considered for enforcement and are eligible for consideration of tactical urbanism permits. IDENTIFICATION OF TRAFFIC CALMING STRATEGIES City staff shall present to the residents living within the area of potential impact the results of the traffic calming study and rating. Where traffic calming may be appropriate, staff will present options for traffic calming in the affected area. Sixty percent (60%) or more of the property owners in the area of potential impact must support the proposed strategy option(s) before the City will give further consideration to traffic calming implementation. In certain circumstances, the 60% requirement may be waived. These circumstances may include locations that have disinterested owners (e.g. locations with a large percentage of rental properties or locations adjacent to a single multifamily apartment complex) or other situations that are deemed necessary for public safety by the City. PROGRAMMING OF TRAFFIC CALMING IMPROVEMENTS Periodically, but not rnere less than once each year, City staff will prioritize those traffic calming strategies within the City that have been approved within their area of impact. Prioritization will be based on the rating system. The City Council Transportation Committee will approve projects to be implemented, up to the yearly budget as determined by City Council. Those traffic calming improvement locations not selected, will remain in consideration for up to three years. City ward boundaries should be considered so that projects affecting each ward can be implemented. DESIGN OF TRAFFIC CALMING PROJECTS The design of traffic calming devices must meet the following criteria: 1. Only residential links or urban center streets are eligible. 2. The street shall have an ADT of less than 4,000. 3. Limited to streets having only one lane of through traffic in each direction. 4. Streets must not be primary emergency routes, as determine by the Police and Fire Departments. 5. At the discretion of the City Engineer, certain traffic calming measures may not be used if they would create an unsafe condition for motorists driving at normal speeds under average driving conditions. 6. Streets must not be through truck routes unless an acceptable alternative route is identified and approved. Design of traffic calming features shall accommodate a single unit truck. EVALUATION OF TRAFFIC CALMING PROJECTS Six months following the completion of the traffic calming improvements, city staff may undertake a follow-up study to determine if the traffic calming features have achieved the initial purpose of the project. If unacceptable impacts are identified, corrective measures may be taken. Traffic calming measures may be removed after the evaluation period for any of the following reasons: 1. Emergency response is significantly impacted. 2. The problem for which the traffic calming was implemented has been transferred to another street. 3. At least sixty percent (60%) of the property owners in the defined area of impact sign a petition to remove the traffic calming measures. This option will result in complete removal of all measures.

The Engineering Division will be preparing the design for this project. This will complete the pedestrian and bicycle connection between Mission Blvd. and Old Missouri Road. Through the various phases of the project, different cross -sectional elements have been installed, including bike lanes, side paths, and the most recently constructed cycle track with adjacent sidewalk. As we begin design for this phase, it is prudent to review the pros and cons of the previous phases constructed, in order to determine the best solution for this phase. As such, 3 options were developed: • Option #1 is very similar to the previous phase between Ash St. and Gulley Park. This option includes 4' wide greenspace instead of the patterned concrete from the first phase. Beyond the greenspace is a 9'6" wide two-way cycle track and an elevated 5' wide sidewalk. • Option #2 also includes 4' of greenspace, a 9'6" wide two-way cycle track and a 5' wide sidewalk. This option has the sidewalk at the same grade as the cycle track and separated by either a 4" brick pocket or striping. • Option #3 includes 6' wide greenspace and a 12' wide multi -use trail. These options were presented at the November 18, 2020 Active Transportation Committee meeting. The Committee consensus was that option 1 is not preferred, due to the way that the facility is used, with pedestrians many times using the cycle track, or having to step into the cycle track when meeting pedestrian traffic coming from the opposite direction The Committee was split on option 2 and 3, with some preferring the wider facility and an at - grade separation of modes, and others preferring the wider greenspace to allow for shade trees. Some members of the Committee asked about combining the options, to provide a wider greenspace with separated cycle track and pedestrian path. Staff recommendation at this time is to construct the standard 12-foot wide path and 6 foot green space. This trail is not expected to have high usage north of Gulley Park, as compared to Mailing Address: 113 W. Mountain Street www.fayetteville-ar.gov Fayetteville, AR 72701 the southern section (and many other trails in the City) and additional costs, land usage, and stormwater impacts of a wider path are not warranted. These options are presented to the Committee for feedback at this time. Staff plans to solicit public feedback on these options before making a final recommendation.

RECOMMENDATION: Staff recommends approval of a New Railroad Crossing Cost and Maintenance Agreement and an Easement Agreement with the Arkansas and Missouri Railroad (AMRR) for a new railroad crossing near Shiloh Drive and Gregg Avenue. Staff also recommends approval of the budget adjustment to fund the cost of the railroad crossing agreement including a contingency of $30,820.86. Total project cost including contingency is $550,000. BACKGROUND: The extension of Futrall Drive has long been on the City's Master Street Plan, to provide an additional access to approximately 150 acres of undeveloped property west of the railroad tracks, east of Garland Avenue, and north of Drake Street. This project was identified as a priority project in the 2019 bond program, as opportunities to partner with developers of the property arose. The connection will provide a more direct access from the property to the Fulbright Expressway, and will include pedestrian facilities to allow for safe crossings at the railroad and Gregg Avenue. DISCUSSION: AMRR has presented two agreements to the City. The first, a New Railroad Crossing and Maintenance Agreement, addresses terms of the construction and maintenance of the crossing, including: • The City will reimburse the AMRR for the full cost of labor and materials for installation of the crossing signal, panels, and appurtenances necessary for a fully operational crossing. The estimated cost of the crossing installation is $519,179.14. • The City agrees to close the existing unimproved crossing at Jocelyn Lane • The City agrees to, in concert with AMRR, make good faith efforts to secure City sourced funding (including federal aid or other grant funding) for safety improvements at Frisco Ave./Douglas St within 5 years of the date of this contract, unless mutually agreed otherwise, and to construct said improvements when funding is available. Mailing Address: 113 W. Mountain Street www.fayetteville-ar.gov Fayetteville, AR 72701 • The City also agrees, in concert with AMRR, to make good faith efforts in pursuing other rail infrastructure and safety improvements grants in the greater Fayetteville area such as a CRISI Grant. The intent would be for the City of Fayetteville to sponsor and work with the AMRR to leverage City sourced funding for Frisco Ave/Douglas and/or a potential pedestrian underpass at University Avenue as a match to a larger grant encompassing several other rail infrastructure projects. The details of the entire scope would need to be agreeable by both parties and will be determined at a later date. • Improvements at Garrett Drive will also be considered when additional development, street connections, or other factors that cause an increase in the crossing usage such as vehicle, pedestrian or rail traffic frequency; however, improvements at this crossing are not required prior to completion of the Futrall Crossing. • The City will pay a yearly maintenance fee of $7,500, increasing by 2% per annum, for basic maintenance and wear and tear. • The City and the AMRR agree to equally share the cost of repairs or major maintenance. The second, an Easement Agreement, establishes the terms of the City's perpetual use of the AMRR property for the crossing. The most significant item in this contract is a requirement to maintain insurance in the amount of $15 million. The property developer has provided conceptual plans totaling over $150 Million in construction for phase 1 of their development, including a mixture of residential, restaurant/retail, and anchored by Washington Regional Medical Center who would employ almost 1,000 employees. If these plans are developed to completion as proposed, the cost of the railroad crossing would be recovered by tax receipts from the construction alone, resulting in net profit to the City's tax base beginning in the first year post construction. BUDGET/STAFF IMPACT: As noted above, the total project estimate is: Agreement with AMRR: $519,179.14 Contingency: $30,820.86 Total: $550,000 Funding for this work will come from the 2019 Transportation Bond Program. There will be additional costs to construct a new access to the property at 2633 Gregg Avenue (as shown in the attached drawing) to mitigate the loss of access across the railroad, along with additional costs for safety improvements at the Frisco crossing and for partnering with AMRR on other safety improvements. Funding sources for these items have not been identified, but may include bond, CIP, and grant funding. Additional City Council approval will be sought for these projects as costs are developed and funding sources identified. Attachments: New Railroad Crossing Cost and Maintenance Agreement Easement Agreement Project Vicinity Map Vicinity Map of Crossing to be Closed Concept Drawing for Jocelyn Ln Access NEW RAILROAD CROSSING COST AND MAINTENANCE AGREEMENT This Agreement, made and entered into this day of , 2020, by and between the City of Fayetteville, Arkansas (hereinafter "City") and The Arkansas & Missouri Railroad Company,(hereinafter "AMRR"), WITNESSETH: WHEREAS, City is in the process of planning a new crossing at Futrall Drive within the City limits at railroad milepost 349.45. The City proposes, for the benefit of the public, to add this crossing, pursuant to the Site Layout attached as Exhibit 1, and remove in its entirety, existing crossing at Jocelyn Lane; and WHEREAS, it is understood that the contemplated crossing will be financed solely from funds appropriated by City and expended under its regulations. NOW, THEREFORE, in consideration of the covenants and agreements contained in this agreement, subject to the provisions of the recitals above, it is agreed by and between the parties hereto as follows: 1. AMRR has provided an estimate for the cost of the crossing upgrade which is attached as Exhibit 2. This estimate does not include any track or railroad work required during utility installation- which is not subject to estimation at this time. The parties understand that the estimate is $519,179.14 and the parties acknowledge that the ultimate cost of the crossing could be under or over this estimate. Both parties further acknowledge that any materials or crossing equipment supplied by the City shall be considered a part of the consideration of this agreement. Upon final completion of the project, all said materials and crossing equipment shall become the property of AMRR. 2. AMRR shall be reimbursed 100% of the actual approved cost (labor and material) for installing the new equipment and its invoices will be paid promptly. Material will be billed as it is ordered by AMRR. The City acknowledges that any work within 25 feet of the tracks requires a Flagging Services Agreement for railroad track protection, including, but not limited to, railroad flagging. A Flagging Services Agreement will be executed simultaneously with the execution of this Agreement. 3. Insurance. During upgrade construction, City shall ensure that any contractors they employ to perform work on the project in question will maintain a general liability insurance policy, the limits of which will be not less than Three Million Dollars ($3,000,000) per person, Five Million Dollars ($5,000,000) per accident and Three Million Dollars ($3,000,000) for property damage. The policy shall name AMRR, its successor or assigns and City as insureds. Such policy shall contain a clause that the insurer will not cancel or change the insurance without giving AMRR, City, or their successors or assigns ten (10) days prior written notice, and a certificate of such insurance shall be delivered to AMRR prior to the inception of the construction of the crossing. 4. Maintenance and Repairs. The parties acknowledge that the crossing and equipment will require maintenance and repairs due to normal wear and tear and possibly damage from accidents, negligence or acts of nature. The City will not be liable for any damages caused solely by the negligence of AMRR. If damages are caused to the crossing and/or equipment by the acts of 3rd parties, AMRR and the City will coordinate to pursue any cause of action against said 31 parties to recover the costs of repairs and any amount recovered will be applied accordingly. City will pay an annual crossing maintenance fee of $7,500 effective upon execution of this Agreement and on each anniversary date thereafter for so long as the crossing remains open. On each anniversary date, the annual maintenance fee will increase by 3% or the Consumer Price Index, whichever is greater. The annual maintenance fee will cover regulatory testing, basic maintenance and general wear and tear. Otherwise, City and AMRR will each be responsible for 50% of any capital expenditures for the equipment and the crossing surface. Except for emergency repairs, AMRR will give the City one hundred eighty (180) day written notice of any needed repairs or maintenance and the amount thereof. The crossing shall be maintained as specified above until such time as the parties mutually agree otherwise or upon a date certain that the crossing should be closed. 5. The City agrees to, in concert with AMRR, make good faith efforts to secure City sourced funding (including federal aid or other grant funding) for safety improvements at Frisco Ave./Douglas St within 5 years of the date of this contract, unless mutually agreed otherwise, and to construct said improvements when funding is available. 6. The City also agrees, in concert with AMRR to make good faith efforts in pursuing other rail infrastructure and safety improvements grants in the greater Fayetteville area such as a CRISI Grant. The intent would be for the City of Fayetteville to sponsor and work with the AMRR to leverage City sourced funding for Frisco Ave/Douglas and/or a potential pedestrian underpass at University Avenue as a match to a larger grant encompassing several other rail infrastructure projects . The details of the entire scope would need to be agreeable by both parties and will be determined at a later date. Improvements at Garrett Drive will also be considered when additional development, street connections, or other factors that cause an increase in the crossing usage such as vehicle, pedestrian or rail traffic frequency; however, improvements at this crossing are not required prior to completion of the Futrall Crossing. 8. Entire Agreement. This Agreement constitutes the entire agreement between the parties with respect to its subject matter and may not be modified or amended orally. 9. Governing Law. This Agreement shall be construed in accordance with and governed by the laws of the State of Arkansas. 10. BindingEffect. ffect.
