DMC Transportation Plan

Plan Description

While there are several different plans being proposed, there is a need to interconnect all those piece parts to integrate them into the transportation framework of the DMC transportation vision.

Strategies (How)

While there are several different plans being proposed, there is a need to interconnect all those piece parts to integrate them into the transportation framework of the DMC transportation vision:  primary function of this Transportation Plan is to provide investment guidance for DMC transit and transportation infrastructure funding.

This recognizes the need for enhanced workforce access and quality transportation options to grow a competitive, diverse, and sustainable economic center in Rochester. The transportation element of the DMC Development Plan serves as a guiding investment strategy based on sound market analysis and full integration with the 20-year DMC development program. It guides investment of DMC dollars directed to transit and transportation projects, including $116 million in State Transit Aid (approximately $47 million of which will come from Olmsted County), and public infrastructure funding to support other transportation related improvements such as streets and parking structure.

The strategy has been established to leverage DMC funding with City/County Capital Improvement Plan (CIP) funding, projects identified in the sales tax extension (approved in 2013), current and future State (MDOT)

Results (Work Products)

  1. Efficient, convenient and accessible transportation systems that provides favorable cost structure commuters, employers and the public sector
  2. More marketable downtown properties
  3. More efficient and effective use of existing and future parking supplies
  4. Better efficiencies in the use of land and reduced parking development costs (for both private and public sectors)
  5. Greater transit ridership
  6. Reduced traffic congestion
  7. A strong partnership between the public sector, Mayo Clinic and the downtown business community
  8. Measurable success based on consensus targets for access and growth

Indicators (How do we know we are achieving the results?)

  1. Organization that effectively supports and advocates the long-term economic vitality and livability of the downtown
  2. Downtown parking to support economic development goals
  3. Increased percentage of downtown employees commuting by transit from 10% (2008) to 23-30% by 2035
  4. Increased number and percentage of commuter bike trips to downtown Rochester from an existing bike/walk mode split of 7% (2008) to 13% by 2035
  5. Increased percentage of downtown employees commuting by carpool/vanpools to downtown Rochester from 12% (2008) to 14% (2035)
  6. Increased employee awareness of the Rochester Access Management Authority and alternative mode transportation options
  7. System-wide partnerships to support parking and TDM efforts/mission
