Caltrans has heard the public’s concerns regarding the planned improvements to State Route 84 in Niles Canyon and the need for more public involvement in the planning process. Caltrans is committed to soliciting the public’s feedback and keeping all interested parties informed of progress throughout the planning for the safety improvements on State Route 84.
As a result of this, Caltrans invited the Federal Highway Administration (FHWA) to conduct an independent Road Safety Assessment of State Route 84 to address safety needs and improvements along the corridor.
Caltrans also assembled a multidisciplinary team from the agencies immediately involved with State Route 84 and conducted a Value Analysis Study from the results of the FHWA’s assessment. A Value Analysis Study is a tool Caltrans uses to evaluate the cost-effectiveness of the solution to an engineering problem. It is a function-oriented, systematic team approach, used to analyze and improve value in a product, facility design, system or service. It is a powerful methodology for solving problems and/or reducing costs while improving performance and/or quality.
On Monday, July 30, 2012 Caltrans held a public meeting to allow both the FHWA and the Value Analysis teams to present their findings and to inform the community that Caltrans has stopped work on the Niles Canyon I, II, and III projects. Below are links to the Road Safety Assessment and Value Analysis studies for the public’s review. Caltrans will schedule another meeting date in early November to further discuss the findings.
