US-1 Multimodal Corridor Study
In early 2017 the Palm Beach Transportation Planning Agency (TPA) kicked off a US-1 Multimodal Corridor Study to examine the potential for new express bus service as well as facilities to improve pedestrian and bicycle safety and connectivity along the corridor. The study encompassed the US-1 corridor in Palm Beach County from Camino Real in the City of Boca Raton to Indiantown Road in the Town of Jupiter. The project corridor is approximately 42 miles in length and runs north-south across 14 local municipalities. This effort included a kickoff outreach event and 6 months of public workshops and charrettes. The project also included a Health Impact Assessment (HIA) and HIA working group with local health partners to help inform the study's recommendations and potential impacts to community health. This project is included in the Palm Beach TPA's Priority Projects List for the Transportation Improvement Program (TIP). This US-1 Multimodal Corridor Study was approved by the Palm Beach TPA Board at the May 2018 Board meeting.
