Corridor Traffic Growth Analysis
In 2001 a comprehensive corridor traffic study was completed in anticipation of redevelopment in the corridor. This study projected what traffic growth would be through year 2015 and provided recommended road and intersection improvements to accommodate the new traffic. To check in with the assumptions for growth in the study the City hired a consultant to perform an audit of the assumptions in this study.  Below is the original study as well as the audit report. In general, the traffic in the Excelsior Boulevard corridor has not increased at the rate anticipated in the Excelsior Boulevard Traffic Study (2001) . While there are some localized intersection traffic delays, overall, there is capacity in the corridor for redevelopment.
