OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

This page provides downloadable copies of information and data gathered and presented during the Riverside Drive Complete Streets Project pilot phase that was conducted from June 2014 to May 2015. Final changes to the street are expected in the summer or fall of 2017.

Historical Traffic Volume Data

The City of Memphis, Traffic Engineering department will gathered data on Riverside Dr. and the adjacent street network to track any variation from baseline conditions resulting from the change to the lane configuration on Riverside Dr. The City utilized historical traffic count information from the Tennessee Department of Transportation (TDOT) and intersection counts collected by the City of Memphis Division of Engineering as baseline figures for this analysis.

Meeting #1 – July 29, 2014 (Beale Street Landing)

This community meeting was the first of several that will be scheduled during the pilot period so that data can be shared and public comment can be made. This meeting included information about what data is being gathered, the projected schedule of future meetings, and what the public can expect during the duration of the pilot period.

Meeting #2 – October 30 , 2014 (MATA Central Station)

This community meeting was the second meeting scheduled during the pilot period so that data can be shared and public comment can be made.

Online Questionnaire – March 2015

Accompanying the press release and notification for the third public meeting, the City invited residents to provide feedback in a similar fashion to those that have been attending the community meetings. The questions and suggested answers from this questionnaire were tailored based on previous feedback already received along the corridor and helped to shape the content of the third community meeting held on March 26, 2015.
