Geographic Area Covered: West Philadelphia, University City

Abstract: This report contains the findings of a set of analyses requested by the Philadelphia City Planning Commission (PCPC) to determine the transportation system impacts of multiple development scenarios. The foci of these scenarios were the 30th Street Station District, the Science Center on Market Street, the Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia (CHOP)/Hosptal of the University of Pennsylvania (HUP) medical campus, and the Pennovation Center. Findings were that all futures included increases in congestion on I-76, with higher intensity scenarios causing greater congestion and delay while also having the potential to severely impact the surface street grid. At the same time significant spare transit capacity remained. It is recommended that coordinated strategies for demand reduction and modal shift be pursued.
