Title: Bridging the French Broad


1
Bridging the French Broad
  • Creating connected and livable communities.

2
Bridging the French Broad
  • Creating connected and livable communities.

Its about more than a bridge and a highway.
3
Why is this important?
It is the most important public development
decision facing WNC in our lifetime This project
has the opportunity to double the size of
downtown Asheville It provides an opportunity to
link urban and economic development to
transportation, highways, and the community It
provides an opportunity connect Downtown to West
Asheville and Emma

Patton
Eliminates planned redevelopment of the Earthfare
(Westgate) property consuming potential river
front opportunities
Leaves 240 traffic on the Smokey park bridge
without addressing the problems with merging
local and interstate traffic (CCC Report)
Takes a considerable amount of existing business
property (Significantly reduces viable tax base)
NCDOT Alternate 2

I-26
240
Patton
Leaves 240 traffic on the Smokey park bridge
without addressing the problems with merging
local and interstate traffic (CCC Report)
Requires multiple roadways at the Patton
intersection creating a physical barrier to
future development
Requires three times the existing ROW leaving
little area for future development along Patton
Avenue

  • Both Alternates 2 3 mix interstate and local

The positive elements of 4
21
By bending 240 northward, Patton is opened with
development sized parcels.
With the straightening of Patton, development and
connections can be made to WECAN, Hillard, and
the River.
22
Is the design a singular program?
23
How does it fit into the context?

I-26
Fewer lanes at the base of the slope creates less
noise impact on the Monford community
NCDOT Alternate 4
Double-deck bridge with I-240 stacked over I-26
provides a compact design similar to the
double-deck bridge proposed for I-75 in Cincinnati
New highway utilizes existing 19-23 roadbed
requiring less ROW acquisition that should save
time and money!
Lane change movements on both sides of the river
minimize required ROW adjacent to the cemetery
I-240
Minimal intersection at Patton avoids physical
barrier created by other alternates

Does a bridge over the French Broad have to be
boring?
45
Imagine if this were built over the French Broad?

It could establish an iconic image parallel to
City Hall or the Vance Monument

It could reinforce the culture of place.
Toledo has a history of glass fabrication, so
they made a glass spire.

  • Consumes less land
  • Returns ROW to the tax rolls
  • Provides for mixed-use development
  • Less impact on adjacent property
  • Allows for connections to local road network
  • User friendly interchanges
  • Less highway movements
  • Potential for a signature bridge

The opportunity for our community and the region
  • More usable land for potential development as
    identified in 2025 plan
  • Connecting West Asheville to the downtown
  • Multi-modal integrated transportation
  • Connections to the river
  • Utilizes Brownfield redevelopment
  • Less visual and auditory impact on Montford
  • Increased State, County, and City tax base
  • Potential reclaiming of surplus ROW
  • Transformation of the regional economic base -

Recommendations
  • DOT Alternates 2 and 3 should not be pursued
    any further.
  • The ADCs 4b should be included in the NCDOT EIS
    process.
  • The CCC report and AIA 10 principles of
    livability must be met.
  • The overall completion date should be maintained
    and expedited.
  • A multi-disciplinary team (Urban Design,
    Transportation Planning, Design Engineer,
    Landscape Architect, Planning) should be
    commissioned to produce a context sensitive
    solution.
  • Excess right-of-way land should return to the
    community for development or park space.
  • Construction of I-40/I-26 connection should be
    reprioritized with construction starting prior to
    the connector.
  • Focus highway resources on local transportation
    such as improved connection of Emma Road to
    downtown , improvements to Sweeten Creek, varied
    transportation options, etc.

59
The Bottom Line
  • Makes our community more livable
  • This realizes development opportunities
  • Saves land, time, MONEY
