Home to the United States Air Force 11th Wing, also known as "The Chief's Own,” Bolling Air Force Base is situated on the east bank of the Potomac River in our nation's capital, and has served as a crucial armed forces base for nearly 100 years. Now known as the Joint Base Anacostia-Bolling, it serves 42,000 Airmen and their families in the U.S capital region and worldwide. With so many people living and working at the base, efficient and safe modes of transportation became a pressing issue as the base grew.
Gannett Fleming conducted a pedestrian and multimodal study as part of an overall Transportation Management Plan (TMP) to assess vehicular and pedestrian travel, parking conditions, and transit services, as well as identify transportation needs for the future addition of personnel.
Utilizing the findings of the pedestrian and multimodal study, the TMP includes analysis of travel modes, trip timing, frequency and length, and travel routes. It was used to identify or validate alternate transportation needs and initiate an active plan to promote more efficient employee commuting patterns. The overall goal of the TMP is to reduce vehicular travel to the base by encouraging alternative modes of transportation.Gannett Fleming developed a traffic model to estimate the decrease in delay, fuel, and emissions with various levels of vehicular travel reductions. It then outlined its multimodal recommendations, which aided the district in its base access planning efforts with state and local government entities.
