1.0 INTRODUCTION AND SUMMARY


This report was prepared in conformance with the Traffic Impact Analysis
guidelines established by Bernalillo County Public Works Division (BCPWD). It
presents information relating to potential traffic impacts and summarizes the
process and results of the Traffic Impact Analysis (TIA) for the proposed facility
improvements at Navajo Elementary School (NES).

a. PURPOSE AND OBJECTIVES


The purpose of this analysis is to evaluate the potential impacts of proposed
improvements to NES. The proposed improvements will be conducted in
two phases, with the first phase being the addition of new class rooms and
outdoor play areas. The second phase will include the consolidation of the
Navajo Elementary school campus with the South Valley Academy (SVA)
charter school campus, located to the north. In conjunction with the second
phase, a new access road is proposed to connect the campuses to Blake
Road in the north. The Phase 1 classroom additions are planned for year
2010; the timing of the Phase 2 campus consolidation is contingent upon the
public school bond cycles, currently estimated for year 2013.

b. SITE LOCATION AND STUDY AREA


NES is located in southwest Albuquerque, east of Coors Boulevard between
Blake Road and Barcelona Road. The study area is shown on the vicinity
map on Figure 1. The study area includes the intersections of Coors
Boulevard at Blake Road and Barcelona Road. The school itself is situated
within the residential area east of Coors Boulevard. SVA is located directly
north of NES and has access via Blake Road.

c. BRIEF DESCRIPTION OF THE DEVELOPMENT


NES currently has 670 students enrolled, with approximately 90% of them
riding one of the nine school buses that serve the site. The school currently
has approximately 80 teachers/staff members. Access to the school is
provided via two residential streets, Sylvia Road and Hughes Road, with
both roads stemming north from Barcelona Rd. The existing parking lot and
pick-up drop off area is designated in the southeast corner of the site, with
access via Hughes Road. The existing classrooms, gymnasium, cafeteria,
etc. are located to the north and west of the existing parking lot. The internal
traffic circulation occurs around the existing parking lot in a counterclockwise
direction. Buses enter the campus via Hughes Road, turn left along the south
property line, and exit via Sylvia Road.
The proposed NES improvements consist of the construction of additional
classrooms and outdoor play areas as illustrated in Figure 2. While the
project consists of additional classrooms, the new facilities are simply
replacing temporary, portable classroom units currently on-site and are not
expected to result in an increase to the student population. Furthermore, the

1
Navajo Elementary School Traffic Impact Analysis, January 2010 PWTR No. 90026

current enrollment represents a decrease of 13% from last year’s total of 770
students. The proposed improvements will, however, redirect buses from the
current entrance on Hughes Road to a new bus entrance on Sylvia Road,
with a dedicated bus lane that will segregate bus traffic from staff and parent
drop-off traffic. Construction of the improvements shown in Figure 2 is slated
for year 2010. Construction of additional improvements, consisting of an
athletic field at the west end of the campus, is tied to the 2011 school bond
cycle.
The capacity of the SVA high school is 235 students. With only 2 buses
serving the facility, it is estimated that nearly half of the students arrive via
other means (personal vehicle, walk, etc.). There are currently
approximately 30 teachers/staff at the facility. A proposed middle school that
will be located within the same parcel and north of the high school campus
will have a capacity of 180 students. The site is not currently managed by
APS, but planned for acquisition and improvement as part of the year 2011
bond cycle. Construction of the middle school campus, if approved in the
bond program, would be programmed for year 2013. Access would remain
via Blake Road. Buses and personally-occupied vehicles (POVs) currently
access the site via Blake Road to the parking area at the southwest area of
the campus, which has 70 parking spaces and 3 bus stalls, circulating in a
counterclockwise direction.
If the bond program is passed and SVA is managed by APS, buses from the
NES campus would likely be routed through the SVA campus to help
alleviate crowding within the NES campus. Access would occur via a north-
south extension of the existing SVA access, integral with existing parking lot
circulation. This operation would be effective due to the fact that the schools
start and end times are staggered, thus reducing congestion conflicts.

d. APPROVED SCOPE
The analyses presented herein were conducted in conformance with the
Project Scoping Report approved by BCPWD in December 2009.

e. CONDUCT OF THE STUDY


This report was prepared in conformance with TIA guidelines established by
BCPWD. These guidelines require preparation of a TIA when the proposed
development results in the generation of 250 additional daily, or 25 additional
peak-hour trips. In addition, the County requires TIAs for safety
considerations and/or in cases where no TIA has previously been submitted.
Since the proposed NES classroom additions will not result in any new study
area trips, the proposed project does not exceed the required thresholds for
a TIA. While the improvements will result in a diversion of bus traffic to a new
entrance, this represents less than 10 trips during a peak period, which also
does not exceed the trip generation thresholds. However, it has been
determined that an analysis will be conducted in order to define existing
study area conditions and identify whether any existing deficiencies exist that
require remediation. Furthermore, the potential consolidation of the SVA
campus and addition of a middle school will be addressed with this study.

1) Principal Assumptions Used in the Study


• The first phase of improvements will occur at NES in year 2010.
Since the proposed improvements will not result in an increase in
student population, existing study area conditions are assumed to be
representative of operations following completion of the NES
improvements.
• Expansion of the SVA campus is anticipated to be complete in Year
2013. Therefore, this year has been selected for analysis of future
buildout traffic operations.
• Proposed improvements at NES will not result in any additional trips.
However, to provide a conservative analysis of future buildout
operations (Year 2013), a nominal increase was assumed.

2) Resources Used in the Study


• Institute of Transportation Engineer’s (ITE) Trip Generation Manual,
8th Edition.
• The Highway Capacity Manual, Special Report 209, Updated 2000
(HCM 2000).

3) Traffic Monitoring or Other Field Data Collected for the Study


Traffic counts were collected at the following locations in September, 2009:
1. Manual turning movement count at Coors Boulevard / Blake Road on
Thursday, September 3, 2009. The period covered the a.m. (7 – 9) and
p.m. (3 – 5) peak periods of the school site.
2. Manual turning movement count at Coors Boulevard / Barcelona Road on
Thursday, September 3, 2009. The period covered the a.m. (7 – 9) and
p.m. (3 – 5) peak periods of the school site.

5
Navajo Elementary School Traffic Impact Analysis, January 2010 PWTR No. 90026

3. 48-hour mechanical counts on Barcelona Road east and west of NES


and east and west of the SVA entrance on Blake Road beginning
Wednesday, September 2 and ending Friday morning September 4,
2009. These data will be used in the site traffic capacity analysis.

f. FINDINGS AND/OR CONCLUSION(S)


Volumes were analyzed for weekday AM and PM peak hours of the school
for adjacent street traffic at each intersection. Traffic volumes during the AM
peak-hour of adjacent street traffic coincide with the AM peak hour of school
trip generation. However, the PM peak-hour of school trip generation occurs
prior to that of the adjacent street system. Results of the analysis of existing
peak school hour operations at adjacent study area intersections indicate
that acceptable levels of service are currently being provided. Results of the
analysis also indicate that, even with the additional traffic generated with
buildout of the SVA campus (year 2013), acceptable intersection operations
will continue.

g. RECOMMENDATIONS PROPOSED AS PART OF THE DEVELOPMENT FOR ON-


SITE AND OFF-SITE IMPROVEMENTS
The proposed site plan provides for safe and efficient site circulation and
access. Therefore, no additional site improvements are recommended.
Results of the analysis of existing peak hour operations at adjacent study
area intersections indicate that acceptable levels of service are currently
being provided. Furthermore, an analysis of traffic operations with additional
traffic generated at buildout of the SVA campus (year 2013) indicates that
acceptable levels of service will continue to be provided at study area
intersections. Therefore, no off-site improvements are recommended.

2.0 PROPOSED DEVELOPMENT


a. LOCATION
NES is located in southwest Albuquerque, east of Coors Boulevard between
Blake Road and Barcelona Road. The study area is shown on the vicinity
map on Figure 1. The study area includes the intersections of Coors
Boulevard at Blake Road and Barcelona Road. The school itself is situated
within the residential area east of Coors Boulevard. SVA is located directly
north of NES and has via Blake Road.

b. LAND USE AND INTENSITY


Currently, the approximately 11 acre site contains the nearly 57,000SF
existing school facility, plus several additional portables. The proposed
improvements consist of an expansion of the existing school facilities along
with various site improvements to address grading, ADA accommodations,
paving, and drainage issues. The proposed improvements will remove an
approximately 4,300SF kindergarten building and replace it with slightly over

6
Navajo Elementary School Traffic Impact Analysis, January 2010 PWTR No. 90026

32,000SF of new building, bringing the facility to approximately 85,000SF.


The main component of this expansion project is a new kindergarten facility
that will replace several existing portable units, as illustrated in Figure 2.
In addition, APS plans various improvements at the adjacent South Valley
Academy (SVA), a charter high school located north of NES. The 16 acre
site currently contains an approximately 16,700SF facility, plus additional
portables. Plans include site improvements and the addition of a middle
school. The proposed improvements will ultimately create an approximate
65,000SF facility at buildout.
While the project consists of additional classrooms, the new facilities are
simply replacing temporary, portable classroom units currently on-site and
are not expected to result in an increase to the student population.
Furthermore, the current enrollment represents a decrease of 13% from last
year’s total of 770 students. The proposed improvements will, however,
redirect buses from the current entrance on Hughes Road to a new bus
entrance on Sylvia Road, with a dedicated bus lane that will segregate bus
traffic from staff and parent drop-off traffic.
The capacity of the SVA high school is 235 students. With only 2 buses
serving the facility, it is estimated that nearly half of the students arrive via
other means (personal vehicle, walk, etc.). There are currently
approximately 30 teachers/staff at the facility. A proposed middle school that
will be located within the same parcel and north of the high school campus
will have a capacity of 180 students. The site is not currently managed by
APS, but planned for acquisition and improvement as part of the year 2011
bond cycle. Access would remain via Blake Road. Buses and personally-
occupied vehicles (POVs) currently access the site via Blake Road to the
parking area at the southwest area of the campus, which has 70 parking
spaces and 3 bus stalls, circulating in a counterclockwise direction.
If the bond program is passed and SVA is managed by APS, buses from the
NES campus would likely be routed through the SVA campus to help
alleviate crowding within the NES campus. Access would occur via a north-
south extension of the existing SVA access, integral with existing parking lot
circulation. This operation would be effective due to the fact that the schools
start and end times are staggered, thus reducing congestion conflicts.

c. SITE PLAN
The project site plan is depicted in Figure 2.

d. PHASING AND TIMING


Construction of the improvements shown in Figure 2 is slated for year 2010.
Construction of additional improvements, consisting of an athletic field at the
west end of the campus, is tied to the 2011 school bond cycle. Construction
of the middle school campus, if approved in the bond program, would be
programmed for year 2013.

Navajo Elementary School Traffic Impact Analysis, January 2010 PWTR No. 90026

3.0 AREA CONDITIONS


a. OFF-SITE STUDY AREA
The study area includes the intersections of Coors Boulevard at Blake Road
and Barcelona Road. The school itself is situated within the residential area
east of Coors Boulevard. SVA is located directly north of NES and has
access via Blake Road.

1) Area of Influence
The area of influence encompasses the population boundaries for the two
schools. The following facilities lie within the study area:
1. Sylvia Rd. runs north-south and accounts for the school bus traffic to
NES. Sylvia Rd. is a typical residential road that is un-signalized,
without pavement markings, and provides residential access on both
sides of the street.
2. Hughes Rd. runs north-south and accounts a majority of the passenger
car traffic to NES. Hughes Rd. is a typical residential road that is un-
signalized, without pavement markings, and provides residential
access on both sides of the street. The speed is posted as 15 mph
when children are present.
3. Barcelona Rd. runs east-west as a 2-lane collector street with no
pedestrian facilities that were recently signalized at the intersection
with Coors Blvd. as part of a NMDOT project.
4. Blake Rd. runs east-west as a 2-lane collector street with no
pedestrian facilities and is signalized at the intersection with Coors
Blvd. Blake Road is planned as a future bike route in the Long Range
Bikeway System Map.
5. Coors Boulevard runs north-south as a 4-lane principal arterial with no
pedestrian facilities and signals as Barcelona Road and Blake Road.
Coors Boulevard is planned for future bike lanes in the Long Range
Bikeway System Map.
Roadway classifications are per the Long Range Roadway System of the
Albuquerque Metropolitan Planning Area. None of the study area facilities
provide sidewalks for pedestrian travel to the schools.

2) Area of Traffic Impact


The area of traffic impact is contiguous with the study area (refer to Figure
1) and includes the intersections of Coors Boulevard at Blake Road and
Barcelona Road. Figure 3 illustrates the existing lane geometry, traffic
control, and peak hour turning movements at each of these intersections.

3) Current and Planned Development


There are no other know planned developments in the area of influence.

b. ON-SITE STUDY AREA


The on-site study area encompasses the site of NES campus (approx. 11
acres) and SVA campus (approx. 16 acres), refer to Figure 2.

1) Area of Influence
For NES, the area of influence includes the parking area and student
loading zones at the eastern and southern parts of the campus. For SVA,
it is limited to the access road and parking lot. Presently, there is no
connection between the NES and SVA campuses. Should consolidation
occur, a potential interaction would involve a bus lane extension from the
NES campus through the SVA access.

2) Current Phase of Development


The proposed campus expansion will occur in a two phases, as described
in Section 2.0(d) above.

c. SITE ACCESS
1) Existing and Proposed Road System
NES is accessed from Barcelona Road via Hughes Road, SVA is
accessed from Blake Road via an on-site drive. Details of the existing road
system are summarized in Section 3.a.(1) above. No new proposed
roadway improvements have been identified.

2) Existing and Proposed Alternative Mode Systems


Blake Road is planned as a future bike route in the Long Range Bikeway
System Map. Coors Boulevard is planned for future bike lanes in the Long
Range Bikeway System Map.

3) Existing and Proposed Sidewalks


None of the study area facilities provide sidewalks. A marked crosswalk
with school zone signs and flashing beacons exists on Barcelona Road at
Hughes Road. Pedestrian activity to the schools is low and occurs via the
unpaved shoulder areas.

4) Improvements to Accommodate Site Traffic


No improvements to the existing access system are proposed or
necessary to accommodate site traffic.

5) Improvement Alternatives
Because no improvements are necessary to accommodate site traffic, no
improvement alternatives were developed.

4.0 PROJECTED TRAFFIC


a. GROWTH RATE
The Mid-Region Council of Government’s Traffic Flow Maps indicate
approximately a 1% annual historical growth rate in traffic on Coors
Boulevard. No growth is anticipated on any other study area facilities as the
study area is generally built out.

b. SITE MOTORIZED VEHICLE TRAFFIC


Table 1 summarizes the current trip generation characteristics of NES and
SVA, based on trip generation data provided in the Institute of
Transportation Engineers’(ITE) Trip Generation Manual, 8th Edition. Land
use categories 520 (Elementary School) and 530 (High School) were utilized
for NES and SVA, respectively. Trip estimates documented in this table are
for the peak hours of school traffic, which occur in conjunction with the
beginning and end of the school day (approximately 8:00AM and 3:00PM).

Table 1 also summarizes the anticipated trip generation of the two facilities
at project buildout (year 2013). To provide a conservative analysis, a
moderate increase in student population at NES was assumed to occur by
year 2013. As indicated in this table, the proposed improvements and
campus expansion are anticipated in result in 98 new trips during the AM
peak and 67 new trips during the PM peak at build out of the campus (year
2013). The estimated traffic volumes used for the analysis are presented in
Figure 4.

c. SITE NON-MOTORIZED VEHICLE AND PEDESTRIAN TRAFFIC (BY HORIZON


YEAR, PHASE AND LAND USE)
Due to lack of available pedestrian and bicycle facilities in the study area, the
proposed campus expansion is not anticipated to result in any increase in
non-motorized vehicle or pedestrian traffic. An estimated 10 pedestrians
and/or bicyclists access the NES campus from Barcelona Road via Hughes
Road.

d. OFF-SITE TRAFFIC (BY HORIZON YEAR)


As previously discussed, the Mid-Region Council of Government’s Traffic
Flow Maps indicate approximately a 1% annual historical growth rate in
traffic on Coors Boulevard. No growth is anticipated on any other study area
facilities as the study area is generally built out.

5.0 TRAFFIC ANALYSIS


a. SITE ACCESS
1) Capacity and Level of Service
The Highway Capacity Manual, Special Report 209, Updated 2000 (HCM
2000) defines operational measures of effectiveness for all types of
roadways and junctions in terms of qualitative levels of service (LOS). This
study is concerned with levels of service for signalized intersections. LOS
at intersections is measured in terms of average vehicle delay, in seconds,
for each approaching vehicle. Control delay is the sum of the
deceleration, queue, stop, and acceleration delays, computed for each
approach movement. Table 2 summarizes LOS definitions and criteria for
signalized intersections.
Attainment of an overall LOS D or higher generally is the desirable base
condition for intersection operations in urban areas. However, LOS E may
be acceptable for certain low-volume approaches or minor movements,
especially where a higher LOS may significantly degrade a major
movement or where the default is LOS E based upon the intersection
cycle length or low approach volumes.

The intersections in the study area are off-site and addressed in Section
5.b. below.

2) Safety Assessment
A review of the most recent four years of accident data was conducted for
the study area. NMDOT provided data for Blake Road and Barcelona
Road, which is summarized in Table 3. As indicated in this table, the
majority of accidents were Property Damage Only, rear-end type
collisions, which are typical for roadway segments with numerous
driveways and intersections. None of the reported collisions involved
school buses.

b. OFF-SITE ROADWAYS AND INTERSECTIONS (BUILD AND NO-BUILD)


HCM 2000 methodologies were employed, using Synchro 7 software, to
assess existing intersection LOS during peak hours. Traffic volumes were
analyzed for weekday AM and PM peak hours of adjacent street traffic at
each intersection. Traffic volumes during the AM peak-hour of adjacent
street traffic coincide with the AM peak hour of school trip generation.
However, the PM peak-hour of school trip generation occurs prior to that of
the adjacent street system.
Table 4 summarizes the results of this analysis for existing conditions, which
indicates that the analyzed intersections are currently operating with
acceptable levels of service during the peak periods (refer to Figure 3 for
location of intersections). Table 5 summarizes the results of the analysis of
anticipated traffic conditions for project buidout (year 2013). As indicated,
acceptable intersection operations are expected to continue in the future,
even with the additional traffic generated by the proposed project.
See Appendix B for capacity computations.

c. SITE CIRCULATION
The existing NES parking lot and pick-up drop off area is designated in the
southeast corner of the site, with access via Hughes Road. The existing
classrooms, gymnasium, cafeteria, etc. are located to the north and west of
the existing parking lot. The internal traffic circulation occurs around the
existing parking lot in a counterclockwise direction. Buses enter the campus
via Hughes Road, turn left along the south property line, and exit via Sylvia
Road. The proposed improvements will redirect buses from the current
entrance on Hughes Road to a new bus entrance on Sylvia Road, with a
dedicated bus lane that will segregate bus traffic from staff and parent drop-
off traffic.
At SVA, access would remain via Blake Road. Buses and personally-
occupied vehicles (POVs) currently access the site via Blake Road to the
parking area at the southwest area of the campus, which has 70 parking
spaces and 3 bus stalls, circulating in a counterclockwise direction.

17
Navajo Elementary School Traffic Impact Analysis, January 2010 PWTR No. 90026

If the bond program is passed and SVA is managed by APS, buses from the
NES campus would likely be routed through the SVA campus to help
alleviate crowding within the NES campus. Access would occur via a north-
south extension of the existing SVA access, integral with existing parking lot
circulation as depicted in Figure 5. This operation would be effective due to
the fact that the schools start and end times are staggered, thus reducing
congestion conflicts.

6.0 IMPROVEMENT ANALYSIS


No operational or safety deficiencies were identified relative to the schools.
Therefore, improvements to study area or access roadways to accommodate
existing or future traffic volumes beyond the existing conditions were not
evaluated.

7.0 FINDINGS
Since the proposed NES campus expansion is not anticipated to result in any
new trips to the study area, it is not anticipated to alter existing intersection levels
of service or accident occurrences. The proposed expansion of the SVA campus
to add a Middle School is expected to generate a small increase in traffic, which
would have negligible impact to the adjacent signalized intersections at Coors
Blvd.

8.0 RECOMMENDATIONS
a. SITE ACCESS AND CIRCULATION PLAN
The proposed site plan provides for safe and efficient site circulation and
access. Therefore, no additional site improvements are recommended.

b. OFF-SITE IMPROVEMENTS AND MITIGATION MEASURES


Results of the analysis of existing peak hour operations at adjacent study
area intersections indicate that acceptable levels of service are currently
being provided. Furthermore, an analysis of traffic operations with additional
traffic generated at buildout of the SVA campus (year 2013) indicates that
acceptable levels of service will continue to be provided at study area
intersections. Therefore, no off-site improvements are recommended.
Because the SVA campus draws students from throughout
the area, pedestrian activity is expected to be very low and
therefore a flashing beacon warning system is not
recommended. It is recommended that a school speed limit
assembly (S4-3, R2-1) with supplemental plaque (When
Children Are Present, S4-2) be installed on Blake Road
adjacent to the SVA campus.
