Hendersonville Road Corridor Study Virtual Public Symposium Session - Shared screen with speaker view
Timothy Tresohlavy, Stantec
35:45
Feel free to use this Chat Box as we go along, we are monitoring and would like to answer questions as needed.
George Webb
41:50
is the AADT shown in the table the current volumes, or the future volumes? And what is the desired volume on the road as per DOT standards to minimize congestion?
Jaquasha Colón, Stantec
43:49
AADT shown is current (pre-COVID)
Mike Sule
46:40
Does crash rate include bike and ped collisions?
marshall williams
47:26
Is that crash rate a raw rate or a critical crash rate
Mike Brady
47:35
Do we have time of day crash rates?
Mark Gibbs
50:36
How many fatalities have occurred on this corridor?
Michael Stratton
53:02
has there been any consideration of installing synchronized traffic lights that that uses real time traffic data that would better prevent the accordion effect
Michael Stratton
53:06
?
Claudia Nix
54:38
People are traveling above the speed limit.
Timothy Tresohlavy, Stantec
55:42
Signal timing was mentioned during several focus group meeting discussions too. Great point.
Claudia Nix
55:49
Years ago NCDOT had a meeting where they were encouraging shared driveways to reduce conflict but it never happened.
Michael Stratton
56:00
also would we be able to prioritize transit buses ?
Michael Stratton
56:16
/// emergency vehicles?
Timothy Tresohlavy, Stantec
57:05
Absolutely right Michael, signal timing and emergency services are critical elements for any improvement recommendations to incorporate
Rusty Pulliam
57:11
Having developed many commercial developments on Hendersonville Rd. why are you guys spending the time and money right now analyzing this road until after the Sweeten Creek Rd. widening project and the I-26 widening project are completed as Hendersonville Rd.'s traffic will drastically change once those are completed.
terry
57:58
how will this impact access to businesss
Timothy Tresohlavy, Stantec
58:15
Planning never sleeps! We are looking at a 10-20 year concept design
John Spake
58:21
Who were the stakeholder groups that you met with?
Mike Sule
59:29
Why is ADA / Accessibility in its own category?
Mike Sule
59:45
ADA is biking walking transit and driving, no?
Tristan Winkler (FBRMPO)
01:01:00
John, the general groups were folks from emergency services, schools, parks, bike/ped advocacy groups, economic development, housing, and the Shiloh community.
Michael Stratton
01:01:15
not a lot of bus riders in here I see :)
carlricker
01:02:20
I agree with Rusty Pulliam that after Sweeten Creek and I-26 is complete a lot of the traffic problems on Hendersonville Road will greatly improve. I have 4 properties that I have owned over 35 years.
Amy
01:02:53
Tristan - please address Rusty's question
kcarter
01:03:19
Other - Bus Rapid Transit (or some other high frequency service
Tristan Winkler (FBRMPO)
01:04:11
Rusty, our travel demand model projects that even with improvements to I-26 and Sweeten Creek, Hendersonville Road will still be over capacity in the future.
John Spake
01:04:23
How about the most affected stakeholders, those who actually own properties fronting on the road? Did you meet with a group of or any individual commercial property owners?
John Ridout
01:04:37
As for why, the traffic volumes corridor have increased 25-40% over the last 8 years.
Rachael Bronson
01:04:48
Couldn't unmute myself in time - other: pedestrian facilities (both sides of the road). It's a challenge to access bus stops/destinations on foot when there's only sidewalk on one side
Timothy Tresohlavy, Stantec
01:05:55
Excellent point about sidewalk gaps being a significant challenge to transit ridership
Colin K
01:07:05
G: Other: Poor Access Management: Right-in/right-out drives that permit drivers to turn left.
marshall williams
01:07:23
Other - Driver Distraction and Inattention
Carter Webb
01:08:16
To follow up on John Spake's comments/questions about stakeholders, it would also be beneficial to include the neighborhoods such as Oak Forest and Biltmore Park.
Chris Cavanaugh
01:09:09
Agree with Colin above. Right-in/right out driveways that allow drivers on Hendersonville Rd to turn left are a problem in several places.
Rusty Pulliam
01:09:22
Nobody is biking down Hendersonville Rd
darlenekucken
01:09:27
On this Q5 I would ask the question WHY would I ride or walk this rode? So I can’t answer this one.
Randy Warren
01:09:27
I ride on Hendersonville road frequently, but do not feel safe
Colin K
01:10:09
haha! "nobody is biking down Hendersonville Rd" because it is so unsafe.
Tristan Winkler (FBRMPO)
01:10:39
John and Carter- good to note. This is the beginning of engagement with the public and stakeholders, we'll be doing more outreach as this study goes forward.
Carol
01:10:48
nobody is biking because it’s hugely unsafe
Randy Warren
01:11:37
People do bicycle on Hendersonville Road. I see it every day.
Michael Stratton
01:11:38
i don't want to drive a car
Andy Walker
01:13:42
There are corridors for biking and others for business and auto traffic. Hendersonville Rd does not appear to be a proper biking corridor.
Gabe Jonas
01:13:44
I agree with John Spake...How about the most affected stakeholders (businesses as well), those who actually own properties fronting on the road? Did you meet with a group of or any individual commercial property owners?
Michael Stratton
01:13:47
it would be good if that was an option
george morosani
01:13:53
I agree with Rusty that any major changes to be made to HVL Rd should be considered after the Sweeten Creek Road widening and the completion of the I-26 road construction to Airport Road —
Carol
01:14:05
would be helpful to have another answer option here, I’ve never used it so can’t answer but would be interested I using
Renee Mazurek
01:14:25
My family might use the transit system more if we could safely access it from Sweeten Creek via Rock Hill Road. It's difficult to access. Answered neutral because I don't use it.
John Spake
01:14:34
In my experience in participating in many of these sort of corridor studies over the past 20+ years the property owners along the road are not given a voice or input on the front end of these studies.
Randy Warren
01:14:46
Frequency and on-time performance is a huge issue
Timothy Tresohlavy, Stantec
01:14:59
Gabe & John: Yes, we met with two groups of economic development stakeholders, in addition to Schools, Underserved populations, Bike/Ped planners, Parks & Open Space, as well as Emergency Services
Dana Cure
01:15:57
Neutral answer because we don't use it. We don't have a great transit system for residents or tourists. Forward planning to serve both would be great for our community.
Rusty Pulliam
01:16:27
Tim...who were the two groups of stakeholders? I am the largest commercial land owner on Hendersonville Rd and no one called me
B Mays
01:16:45
I would ride the bus more if I felt safer. frequency is another issue, but this isn't a big city that has easier accessibility for the buses on the crowded streets
Randy Warren
01:17:57
Other for using transit more. There needs to be much more frequency and reliability in order for it to be useful
Stuart Rohrbaugh
01:17:58
I lived near Long Shoals Rd from 2009 to 2015. Transit has much better frequency now. My bike commute down Long Shoals to a bus stop on Hendersonville Rd was scary.
george morosani
01:18:05
What is the bus volume at pre-virus— A chart of ridership by time of day —
John Spake
01:18:06
I would like a list of "economic development stakeholders" please. In my polling of commercial property owners prior to this meeting, I did not hear that any were contacted.
carlricker
01:18:11
No one got in touch with me even that I own four properties that front the highway for over 35 years. Do you have an answer for that?
Timothy Tresohlavy, Stantec
01:18:37
Rusty, lets schedule some time to meet and discuss in more detail.
Amy
01:22:29
We own Gerber Village along the highway and no one contacted us either. I would also like to see the list of stakeholders contacted
Mike Brady
01:22:33
Maybe a question about overall quantity of development in relationship to capacity of road traffic.
Mariate.Echeverry
01:22:42
is this related to aesthetics or development?
Renee Mazurek
01:23:12
more trees and shade for sidewalks and transit stops would be a great addition and also great for heat island effect that this section of the city experiences. I also would like to see equitable development incorporated into plans.

multi family housing equals a lot more traffic
Timothy Tresohlavy, Stantec
01:52:41
Hopefully many will be walkers, bikers, and transit riders too!
Michael Stratton
01:52:58
Indeed Tim
Mike Sule
01:53:59
multifamily requires multi-modal transportation options. The only way to reduce congestion is to diversify the mode share. Transit, walk, bike, drive.
Susan Burchall
01:54:08
Great Presentarion!
Renee Mazurek

Thank you!
