Projects: ABC Ramps Transportation Options
This task report of the ABC Ramps Research reviews and evaluates all corridors leading to the ABC Ramps in downtown Minneapolis, including but not limited to I-394, to address the following questions: 1. Are all major routes entering downtown, not just I-394 and I-94 southbound, experiencingcongestion, and how much is due to single-occupancy vehicles (SOVs)? 2. If people now approach the ABC Ramps from all directions, would congestion in the core bedecreased if more of these people were encouraged to carpool? 3. If all drivers, not just those approaching from the west and north, were eligible to receiveincentives to carpool, how would this impact congestion on the city streets? Would congestionbe lessened on downtown streets leading to the ABC Ramps?
