      REVIEW EVALUATION RESULTS AND RECOMMEND LOCAL
           TRANSPORTATION ENHANCEMENT PRIORITIES

RECOMMENDED ACTIONS:
                                 1. Review the evaluation results of the 6 new bicycle
                                    pedestrian projects for Transportation Enhancement
                                    (TE) Funds as shown in Tables 1, 2, 3 and 4 of
                                    Attachment B.
                                 2. Consider the rankings from Table 1 and recommend
                                    a list of priorities in conjunction with the unfunded
                                    priorities from last year

Six bicycle pedestrian proposals for local Transportation Enhancement (TE) funds have
been submitted this year: two from the City of Cape Coral, three from the City of Fort
Myers, and one from the Lee County BOCC. TE funds include new funds available in
District One for FY 2015/16 and any unused funds from previous years. These
proposals are shown in Attachment A.

At its last meeting in March, the BPCC asked staff to revise the existing evaluation
criteria so it is more in line with complete streets policy and use the resulting criteria to
evaluate the new TE proposals. During the early part of April, staff worked on the
revisions and the final revisions (Attachment D) were developed with input from the
BPCC. Some of the revisions included deleting the school related criteria, adding an
employment based criterion, changing the buffer distance for calculating housing units
to ¼ and ¾ miles respectively for pedestrian and bike projects, and giving a weighting
factor of 2 for intermodal projects. The housing unit analysis was provided by the Lee
County Property Appraiser’s Office while intermodal trips were calculated by MPO and
Leetran staff.

A break down of project scores by each individual criterion as well as a composite score
for each individual project is shown in Attachment B. A breakdown of all 6 projects by
the raw and adjusted scores of criteria 4,5,7,9 and 11 is shown in Table 2 of
Attachment B. Attachment B also includes the calculations that were used to find the
weighted percentage of households without vehicles (Table 3) and weekly bus trips
(Table 4) while Attachment C includes the estimated employment user base within ¼
or ¾ mile buffer.

At the May 18th meeting, the BPCC will be asked to review the evaluations and
recommend priorities after considering the rankings resulting from the evaluations.

Bicycle/Pedestrian Projects

Notes:


1.       Connection to a similar facility: A project may connect to a similar facility on the same
         street or on intersecting streets. A similar facility may be an existing facility or a
         programmed project. A bike path and a sidewalk shall be treated as similar facilities, but
         such a connection will be awarded less credit than bike path-to-bike path or sidewalk-to-
         sidewalk connections. For the scoring below, a Signed Bike Route is defined as a shared
         facility with a Bike Sharing Roadway sign, while a Shared Street is defined as an on road
         pedestrian and bicycle street such as Times Square in Fort Myers Beach.

         10 points      Shared Use Path to Shared Use Path, Bike Lane to Bike Lane or Paved Shoulder
                        or Signed Bike Route, Paved Shoulder to Paved Shoulder or Bike Lane or
                        Signed Bike Route, Signed Bike Route to Signed Bike Route or Bike Lane or
                        Paved Shoulder, Sidewalk to Sidewalk, or Shared Street to Shared Street at both
                        ends.

         7 points       A Sidewalk project connects with a Shared Use Path or Shared Street at both
                        ends or vice versa, or a Sidewalk project connects with a Shared Use Path or
                        Shared Street at one end and a Sidewalk on the other end, or a Shared Use Path
                        connects with a Shared Use Path at one end and a Sidewalk or Shared Street at
                        the other end, or a Shared Street connects with a Shared Use Path or Sidewalk at
                        one end and a Shared Street at the other end.

         5 points       Shared Use Path to Shared Use Path, Bike Lane to Bike Lane or Paved Shoulder
                        or Signed Bike Route, Paved Shoulder to Paved Shoulder or Bike Lane or
                        Signed Bike Route, Signed Bike Route to Signed Bike Route or Bike Lane or
                        Paved Shoulder, Sidewalk to Sidewalk, or Shared Street to Shared Street at one
                        end.

         2 points       Shared Use Path to Sidewalk, or Bike Lane/Paved Shoulder/Signed Bike Route
                        to Sidewalk, or Shared Use Path to a Shared Street, or Bike Lane/Paved
                        Shoulder/Signed Bike Route to a Shared Street at one end.


2.       Access to Bicycle/Pedestrian Attractions: Attractions may include one or a combination of
         attraction types including schools/colleges/universities, parks, libraries, post offices,
         community centers, and retail/service developments. Retail/service development may
         include either shopping centers with or without an anchor tenant, or free-standing stores
         and providing consumer services like a pharmacy. It may also include a strip commercial
         center

         10 pts         Attractions adjacent to the project.
         8 pts.         Attractions within ¼ mile of the project .
     4 pts.          Attractions within ½ mile of the project.

3.   Estimated Population User Base: The number of housing units accessible by pedestrians
     within ¼ mile of a sidewalk project and accessible by cyclists within ¾ mile of a Shared Use
     Path/Bike Lane project will be the raw score for the project. Inaccessibility may be as a
     result of barriers such as canals and gated communities within the buffer or the lack of
     connecting public ways. The Lee County Property Appraiser Office will provide the
     housing unit data to MPO staff.

     1   point for every 400 housing units for a maximum of 10 points

4.   Estimated Employment User Base: Projects will be evaluated on the estimate user base
     within a logical distance from the project. A ¼ mile envelope will be used for sidewalk
     project and a ¾ mile envelope will be used for a Shared Use Path/Bike Lane project. The
     most recent traffic analysis zone employment data from Lee MPO projections will be used.

     1   point for every 250 jobs for a maximum of 10 pts

5.   Household Units Without Vehicles: The percentage of occupied housing units without any
     vehicles available within the Census tract traversed by the project in the 2000 Census for
     which tract data are available will be the raw score for the project. For projects located in
     more than one Census tract, the percentages shall be weighted by the project length within
     each tract. Where a project follows a tract boundary, half the weight shall be given to each
     tract.

     1 point for every 4% for a maximum of 10 points

6.   Local Financial Participation: A project will be awarded points in proportion to an
     applicant’s percentage of total financial participation.

     1 point for every 5% of matching local funds


7.   Bicycle/Pedestrian Crash Data: The total bicycle and pedestrian crashes for the last 3 years
     within the project limits shall be the raw score for the project. The project sponsor shall
     provide the data for the bicycle/pedestrian crashes in the last 3 years.

     1 point for every 1 accident for a maximum of 10 points

8.   Speed Limit: Points will be awarded to a project depending upon the speed limit of the
     roadway along which the bicycle/pedestrian facility is to be located.

     5 pts           >45 mph
     3 pts           30 - 45 mph
     1 pt            <30 mph

9.   Traffic Volume: The Annual Average Daily Traffic (AADT) of the adjacent roadway shall
     be the raw score for the project. The project sponsor shall provide the AADT from Lee
     County’s 2009 Traffic Count Report or municipal government traffic count report or an
     alternative document and identify the location where the count was taken. Sponsors are
      allowed to provide on spot traffic counts if the roadway or the roadway segment is not
      included in the traffic count reports or alternative documents.

      1 point for every 3000 AADT for a maximum of 10 points

10.   Total Shoulder and Lane Width: The combined existing width of the outside (curb) lane
      and paved shoulder shall be taken into account while awarding points to a project. The
      width will be measured from the inside stripe of the outside (curb) lane (or the centerline,
      for unstriped roads) to the pavement edge or curb face.

      5 pts.          <14 Ft
      2.5 pts         14 – 16 Ft
      0 pt.           > 16 Ft

11.   Intermodal Connections: To qualify as an intermodal connector, a project must either
      follow or cross a Lee Tran bus route. The number of buses per week in both directions on
      all such routes will be the raw score for the project. Weighting Factor = 2

      1 point for every 96 trips (both directions) for a maximum of 10 points
                                                                          Agenda Item 3
                                                                          BPCC 5/18/10


                   DISCUSSION ON POTENTIAL PROJECT
                     PROPOSALS FOR TIGER II FUNDS

RECOMMENDED ACTIONS:            Discuss the potential projects that could be submitted
                                for TIGER II funding.

The Federal Highway Administration recently announced the FY 2010 TIGER II
Discretionary Grant program. You may recall that the MPO submitted two applications
for the TIGER program last year (Rail corridor and I-75 widening improvements) but
there were no projects in Florida that received funding. Projects eligible for funding
provided under this program include, but are not limited to, highway or bridge projects,
public transportation projects, and passenger and freight rail transportation projects.
This year, there is $600 million available for projects with a minimum grant size of $10
million for urban area projects and a 20% local match requirement. The selection criteria
that will be used to determine what gets funded is similar to last year and it includes
economic competitiveness, livability, environmental approvals, job creation, innovation
and partnerships. The pre-application deadline is July 16, 2010 and the deadline for
applications is August 23, 2010. Staff will outline some of the proposed projects that
have been discussed to date and will seek input from the Committee on
                                                                    Agenda Item 4
                                                                    BPCC 5/18/10


PROVIDE COMMENTS TO FDOT ON THE BICYCLE PEDESTRIAN
  ACCOMODATION ON THE SR 78 RESURFACING PROJECT

RECOMMENDED ACTIONS:              Review aerials and pictures of the SR 78
                                  resurfacing project from Hancock Bridge Pkwy
                                  to Del Prado Boulevard (to be distributed at
                                  May 18th meeting) and provide comments to
                                  FDOT for bicycle pedestrian facilities to be
                                  incorporated in design plans.

Starting from our January meeting, the BPCC has been officially providing input
to FDOT on 3R project plans. At that meeting, the design plans for three projects
for which input was provided were at the 0% stage. These projects are as
follows:

    1. SR 78 from East of Royal Tee Boulevard to East of SW 19th Avenue
       (FPN# 4252311).
    2. SR 78 from west of Del Prado Boulevard to west of US 41 (FPN#
       4252301).
    3. SR 867 from S of College Pkwy to Keenan Avenue (FPN #4252281).

District One Bicycle Pedestrian Coordinator and BPCC member Sarita Taylor will
update the committee members regarding when the 30% plans will be ready for
these projects for committee review. As for the SR 867 resurfacing project, the
Project Manager has informed staff that he will be sharing the plans with MPO
staff whenever they are ready. This project will be combined with a sidewalk
project on McGregor from College Parkway to Edinburgh. It is the understanding
of staff that while the 90% design plans for a widening project that overlaps the
first itemized project is complete, the design plans for the resurfacing project is
underway. The construction phase for both projects are a year apart with the
construction of the widening project programmed in FY 2012/13 and the
resurfacing project in FY 2011/12. FDOT is trying to make sure that in the event
that the widening project gets derailed or stalled, we have a contingency plan
included in the resurfacing project that will go forward.

Another resurfacing project that will be programmed soon is SR 78 from east of
Hancock Bridge to west of Del Prado Boulevard with the plans at 0% stage. Staff
will review the location to find out the type of bike/ped amenities that should be
accommodated in the design. Staff comments and pictures form the location will
be shared with the committee at the May 18th meeting and the committee
recommendation will be forwarded to FDOT.

                                                                           BPCC 5/18/10


 DISCUSSION OF FLORIDA HB 971 AND ITS IMPACT ON BICYCLING
DISCUSSION ITEM:         1. Discuss the impact of proposed House Bill 971 on bicycling
                            and walking.
                         2. Take action if needed.


Controversial provisions in the proposed Highway Safety and Motor Vehicles bill - HB
971, has created a stir in the bicycling and walking community as it is generally felt that
the bill negatively impacts non-motorized modes of travel and threatens the safety of
bicyclists and pedestrians. The proposed bill contains revisions adding a mandatory
bike lane use restriction for cyclists, permits motorized vehicles on sidewalks without
yielding provisions, and assists 4+ time DUI offenders to reapply for their driver's
licenses.

A major grievance is that the mandatory bike lane use revision was not properly
publicized and no input was taken from the bicycling community. It is also being argued
that Florida already has a "ride as far right as practicable" law. According to that law a
cyclist who is riding in that manner would already be in a bike lane if one exists,
according to the unrevised statute. There is a fear that the ambiguous wording will serve
only as an opportunity for law enforcement officers and judges to unfairly ticket and
discriminate against cyclists, and for motorists to use as an excuse to harass and harm
cyclists on the roadways.

The complaint against the opportunity for multiple-DUI offenders to regain their driver's
license is that someone reckless enough to have 4 DUI's to their name have repeatedly
proven themselves to be irresponsible and a menace to all road users and therefore do
not deserve any additional chances to redeem themselves.

As for motorized vehicles on pedestrian facilities the concern is that there is nothing in
HB 971 that requires these vehicles to yield to pedestrians, nor is there an explanation
as to how 15mph speed limits (a speed capable of injuring or even killing a pedestrian)
will be enforced.

The bill has passed both the Florida House of Representatives and the Senate, and is
presently awaiting a signature from Governor Crist. The Florida Bicycle Association
(FBA) is making a plea to all Floridians to contact the Governor’s office to veto HB 971.
A minimum of 2,500 complaints are required for this bill even to be considered for veto.

Committee Chairman Dan Moser will present this item and initiate a discussion at the
May 18th BPCC meeting. The bill in its entirety can be viewed at

                 UPDATE ON FDOT’S ADA STUDY ON US 41

DISCUSSION ITEM:

At its March 4th BPCC meeting, the BPCC had asked staff to include an item on the ADA study
conducted by FDOT on US 41 from Victoria Avenue to Hanson Street. The consultant has
completed the study and has submitted it to FDOT for their review. Committee member Sarita

     DISCUSSION ON THE PROPOSED DEVELOPMENT OF THE US
                    BICYCLE ROUTE SYSTEM

DISCUSSION ITEM:

In 2008, the Association of American State Highway Transportation Officials (AASHTO) Board
of Directors and Standing Committee approved a National Corridor Plan laying the framework
for the development of a US Bicycle Route System. The Plan identifies corridors connecting
America’s urban, rural, and suburban areas in the lower 48 states and was the result of a 5 year
planning effort by an AASHTO task force which included representatives from federal and state
transportation agencies and nonprofit organizations. Input was derived from federal and state
officials, cycle advocacy groups and individuals, as well as various AASHTO committees. For
metro regions, the US Bicycle Route System is expected to help bridge the gap between bike
networks and the challenges that suburban sprawl for people trying to reach rural cycling
destinations.

Federal funds are expected to be available for planning, mapping and signing the US Bicycle
Route System, including a match fund program for infrastructure investments if they are
needed. Representatives Jim Oberstar, Chair of the Committee on Transportation and
Infrastructure, and Peter DeFazio, Chair of the Subcommittee on Highways and Transit are
already on board and are working to get the funds attached to the federal transportation
reauthorization bill.

While a set of national corridors has already been identified as shown in the map in Attachment
A, the precise routes have not been specified in most states. The map identifies two north south
and one east west corridor in Florida. Updates on the US Bicycle Route System can be found
at http://www.adventurecycling.org/routes/nbrn/usbikewaysystem.cfm

In Florida, the special projects coordinator with FDOT is facilitating route development in
partnership with Georgia’s bicycle and pedestrian coordinator and they will be working closely
with state districts, regional planning councils, MPOs and trail administrators as the routes begin
to take shape.

Committee member Andy Getch will present this item and facilitate a discussion at the May 18th
BPCC meeting.

  DISCUSSION ON THE USE OF BIKE SIGNAGE ON LEE COUNTY ROADWAYS

DISCUSSION ITEM:        1. Discuss the installation of “Bicycles May Use Full Lane”
                           regulatory signs (MUTCD approved sign R4-11) on all major
                           roads in Lee County without on-road bike accommodations.

                         2. Discuss the installation of “Bicycle Sharing Roadway”
                            regulatory signs developed by LC Traffic Division on all
                            major roadways with wide cub lanes (14’ +).


Committee Chairman Dan Moser will initiate a discussion on the need for bike signage
on major Lee County roadways without bicycle facilities, such as bike lanes or paved
shoulders, where the posted speed limit is over 45 mph. The call for signage includes
regulatory Bicycle May Use Full Lane Sign (R4-11) for all major roads where travel
lanes are too narrow for bicyclists and motor vehicles to operate side by side. The call
for signage also includes regulatory Bicycle Sharing Roadway sign on major roadways
with wide curb lanes (width greater than 14’). The latter is not currently included in the
MUTCD but Lee County DOT has developed its own regulatory sign (attached).

                  STATUS UPDATE ON THE COUNTYWIDE
                   BICYCLE PEDESTRIAN MASTER PLAN


DISCUSSION ITEM:

Staff will give an update on the development of the Bicycle Pedestrian Master Plan and
upcoming activities. Currently, the facility data and maps are being reviewed to ensure
that they match what’s out in the field and the Consultant is working on the development
of draft reports for tasks 2 and 3 (which include the Review of Best Practices and the
Encouragement and Support of Bicycle/Pedestrian activity). In addition, the Consultant
has also developed a project website to take comments and descriptions of
bicycle/pedestrian problem areas to better define what those issues are and to help
provide possible solutions.
                                                                 Agenda Item 11

   UPDATE ON BICYCLE PEDESTRIAN RELATED PROJECTS



DISCUSSION ITEM:

The following are bike related/supportive projects where construction is currently
under way or the pre-construction phases are underway or soon to be
programmed:

   1. SR 82 6-laning from Ortiz Boulevard to Lee Boulevard (FPN #1954882).
   2. US 41 6-laning from Corkscrew Road to San Carlos Boulevard (FPN
      #1957651).
   3. US 41 Bike Lane Marking and Signage from Collier County Line to South
      of Crown Lake Boulevard (FPN #427071).
   4. SR 867 Sidewalk (east side) from College Parkway to Wilson Avenue
      (FPN# 4201151).
   5. SR 867 Sidewalk (west side) from College Parkway to Edinburgh Drive
      (FPN# 4201161).
   6. SR 867 Sidewalk from Peck Avenue to Bayside Drive (FPN #4201171).
   7. SR 867 Sidewalk from Travers Lane to Dean Way (FPN #4201181).
   8. US 41 Sidewalk from Daniels Parkway to Palm Drive (#4226301).

The District One Bicycle Pedestrian Coordinator and BPCC member Sarita
Taylor will update the committee members regarding when the 30% plans will be
ready for review for project numbers 4, 6, 7 and 8 listed above. The SR 867
project in item 5 will be designed and constructed together with the McGregor
resurfacing project from College Parkway to Keenan Avenue. Staff was informed
by FDOT that it had considered building the sidewalk project in item 4 with the
resurfacing project as well, but dropped the idea when it was determined that the
sidewalk cannot be built between the palm trees and the road pavement but
would have to be built outside the palm trees.

The SR 82 project on item 1 is currently underway and it will include keyhole
lanes next to the auxiliary lanes. FDOT will provide any update on whether
designated bike lanes will be provided on US 41 between Hickory Drive and San
Carlos Boulevard as part of the 6-laning project in item 2. The 90% design plans
for the bike lane marking project in item 3 has been completed and reviewed by
MPO staff as well as some of the members of the BPCC.
                                                                        Agenda Item 12
                                                                         BPCC 5/18/10


             UPDATE ON THE PREFERRED ALIGNMENT FOR
                 THE NORTH COLONIAL BIKE PATH

DISCUSSION ITEM:

At its March 4th meeting, the BPCC reviewed the various alternatives for extending the
North Colonial Bike Path from its western terminus at Metro Parkway and came up with
the preferred alternative shown in Attachment A. The proposed alignment includes
using land around the retention pond areas of the proposed Metro Fowler Crossover as
well as land around the lake in the TWC Seventy Eight Ltd parcel.

The Project Manager of the Metro Fowler Crossover project informed the committee
that he would try to get FDOT permission to use the land on the retention pond areas
for the alignment. The City of Fort Myers had also agreed to hold talks with the property
owner of the TWC Seventy Eight Ltd parcel to secure an easement for the bike path
extension. Staff was recently informed by City of Fort Myers Engineering that the City
may already have an easement from the property owner and that it would investigate
the history behind the donation of the easement and share the information with the
BPCC at its May 18th meeting. This research is important to help us determine if we
can use future federal funding opportunities to build the bike path as the federal
requirements for purchase or dedication of easements has to be followed before funding
can be awarded.

Staff will also provide an update on the permission to use the retention pond land for
building the bike path extension at the May 18th meeting.
