Kinsman Avenue Arts, Culture and Entertainment District - Access and Enhancement Plan - Mt. Pleasant NOW Development Corporation

KS Associates prepared an Alternatives Study for the Kinsman Avenue Arts, Culture and Entertainment District Access and Enhancement Plan, including the evaluation of design alternatives in the District, from E. 139th Street to E. 142nd Street. The enhancement plan proposed to implement streetscape improvements, pedestrian and bicycle enhancements and infill development.

KS Associates evaluated two signalized intersections, one where Kinsman Avenue, E. 140th Street and Union Avenue intersect, and another where Kinsman Avenue intersects with E. 142nd Street. The study also evaluated an unsignalized intersection at E. 139th Street for level of service and accident frequency.

The study concluded that the traffic patterns contributed to accidents along Kinsman Avenue and that improvements would have to be incorporated to provide safe and adequate bicycle and pedestrian access.

After reviewing the Existing Conditions Study, the client requested that KS evaluate two design alternatives. The first alternative was to restripe Kinsman Avenue and Union Avenue to provide a two-way-left-turn-lane with one lane of traffic in the eastbound and westbound directions. The second alternative was to construct a roundabout for the intersection of Kinsman-Union-E. 140th Street.
