The Development Review Committee (DRC) is an administrative and technical committee which reviews policy
and technical issues raised by a development project. The DRC is intended to streamline and coordinate the
review of the development process by identifying, addressing, providing input, advice and comments regarding
all applicable provisions and regulations. The review of the projects and comments on development proposals
by the DRC shall not be construed to be an approval of any project presented to the Committee.

EXECUTIVE SUMMARY

The existing Publix, located at 2551 S. LeJ eune Road (SW 42
nd
Avenue, SR 953) in Coral Gables,
Florida, is considering an expansion, including the addition of a residential component. The site is
located within the Gables Re-development Infill District (GRID), the citys traffic concurrency
exception area. The existing site consists of a 43,500 square feet of supermarket use. The
proposed development program includes a 58,500 square feet of supermarket, 300 apartments, and
5,000 square feet of specialty retail. The proposed site plan is included in Appendix A. Project
buildout is anticipated in 2015. This traffic study is consistent with the methodology previously
discussed with and agreed to by the city of Coral Gables Public Works Department.

An assessment of the traffic impacts associated with the proposed project was performed in
accordance with the requirements of the city of Coral Gables. The analysis of study area roadway
segments and intersections indicate that all facilities currently operate within the Citys Level of
Service (LOS) standards. Analysis of future conditions indicate that these facilities will continue
to operate within the adopted standards at project buildout.

The suitability to accommodate pedestrians at the signalized intersection under study was also
evaluated. The signal timing at the analysis intersection in the area was found to be adequate for
pedestrian movements. Pedestrian mobility within and around the site is encouraged by providing
pedestrian amenities and minimizing conflicts with vehicular traffic.

1.0 INTRODUCTION


1.1 Project Background
The existing Publix, located at 2551 S. LeJ eune Road (SW 42
nd
Avenue, SR 953) in Coral Gables,
Florida (see Exhibit 1), is considering an expansion, including the addition of a residential
component. The site is located within the Gables Re-development Infill District (GRID), the
citys traffic concurrency exception area. The existing site consists of a 43,500 square feet of
supermarket use. The proposed development program includes a 58,500 square feet of
supermarket, 300 apartments, and 5,000 square feet of specialty retail. The proposed site plan is
included in Appendix A. Project buildout is anticipated in 2015. This traffic study is consistent
with the methodology previously discussed with and agreed to by the city of Coral Gables Public
Works Department (See Appendix B).


1.2 Study Objective
The purpose of the study is to provide a traffic study that meets the requirements of the city of
Coral Gables for the project. This study includes vehicular flow, trip generation, signalized
intersection analyses, and a review of pedestrian issues.

1.3 Study Area and Methodology
1. Study Roadway Segments and Intersections
Andalusia Avenue between LeJ eune Road and Salzedo Street;
Valencia Avenue between LeJ eune Road and Salzedo Street;

2. Study Periods
Weekday (Tue, Wed, or Thurs) 7:00-9:00 AM and 4:30-6:30 PM.
Project opening is anticipated in 2015.
3. Traffic Counts
Two-hour turning movement counts were collected on Tuesday October 9
th
, 2012
during the study periods at study intersections.
Seventy-two hour machine counts, summarized at 15-minute intervals, were
collected on Tuesday October 9
th
, Wednesday October 10
th
and Thursday October
11
th
2012 at study segments.
4. Signal Phasing and Timing
Existing signal phasing and timing for the signalized intersections were obtained from
Miami-Dade County. Pedestrian walk-times in the traffic signal plans were evaluated.
Enhancements, where appropriate, were recommended.
5. Trip Generation
The Institute of Transportation Engineers (ITE) Trip Generation Manual, 9
th
Edition,
was used to establish existing and future project trips. Pass-by trips and internalization,
per ITE, were used for existing and proposed conditions. A 10% deduction was also
used to account for transit and pedestrian trips for both the existing and proposed plans.
The net new external vehicular trips (difference between the proposed plan and existing
plan) were added to future background traffic volumes and the resulting volumes were
analyzed for the future condition with project.
6. Trip Distribution / Assignment
Net new external project traffic were assigned to the adjacent street network using the
appropriate cardinal distribution from the Metro-Dade Long Range Transportation
Plan Update, published by the Metropolitan Planning Organization. Existing traffic
patterns based on project driveway counts were also considered when assigning project
trips to the roadway network.
7. Background Traffic
Available Florida Department of Transportation (FDOT) and Miami-Dade County
Publix & Miracle 84
Traffic Study

Page 4
(MDC) counts from the past five years were consulted to determine a historical annual
growth factor in the area. The growth factor was applied to the existing traffic volumes
to establish background traffic.
8. Future Transportation Projects
The 2012 Transportation Improvement Program (TIP) and the 2035 Long Range
Transportation Plan (LRTP) were reviewed and considered in the analysis at project
build-out.
9. Committed Developments
The city was consulted to determine committed developments within a two-mile radius
of the project site.
10. Intersection Analysis
Intersection analysis was performed using the Highway Capacity Software (HCS)
based on the 2000 Highway Capacity Manual (HCM).
11. Roadway Segment Analysis
Roadway segment capacity was estimated using generalized vehicular capacities from

12. Access and Circulation
Data and analyses used in determining appropriate access and circulation patterns for
the parking garage are included in the report.


1.4 Project Site Information
The property located at 2551 S. LeJ eune Road currently houses a 43,500 square foot Publix
Supermarket. Surface parking is provided on-site. In addition, on-street, metered parking is
available adjacent to the site along Andalusia and Valencia Avenues. Existing access to the site
for customers and employees is provided via two driveways on Andalusia Avenue and two
driveways on Valencia Avenue. All of the existing driveways are two-way. Andalusia Avenue
(eastbound only) and Valencia Avenue (westbound only) are a set of one-way pairs.

An expansion to the site is proposed. The supermarket will be expanded to 58,500 square feet. A
300-unit apartment building with 5,000 square feet of specialty retail on the ground floor will be
added to the east end of the property.

The project will have a parking garage on the site. When the access plan for the parking garage
was being developed, it was very apparent that understanding the existing traffic patterns to the
Publix site is important, especially given the one-way pair system of Andalusia Avenue and
Valencia Avenue. Also, Publix wants to make the transition from surface parking to a parking
garage as seamless as possible for their long-term customers, especially their senior customers.

Traffic counts were taken at the driveways during store hours (6:45 AM to 10:00 PM) on
Wednesday, May 16, 2012 and Sunday, May 20, 2012 to determine the existing access patterns to
the site. It is important in the development of the future parking garage access to understand the
existing traffic patterns (i.e., do more drivers use the Andalusia Avenue or Valencia Avenue to
access the site). If there is a significant difference in the inbound traffic flow for the Publix
between Andalusia Avenue and Valencia Avenue, then that roadway will be given access to the
most convenient parking.

A summary of the existing driveway traffic counts is provided in Exhibit 2.

The traffic counts show that the vast majority of the inbound traffic uses Andalusia Avenue,
especially on a weekend day. Therefore, priority inbound access to the most convenient parking
spaces in the proposed parking garage should occur from Andalusia Avenue. Enough of the
weekday, inbound traffic (44%) uses Valencia Avenue to justify the need to access the Publix
parking garage from both Andalusia Avenue and Valencia Avenue.

The residential component of the project will have two, distinctive peak periods during a typical
weekday: 7:00 AM to 9:00 AM and 4:00 PM to 6:00 PM. These are the basic periods when
residents leave their unit for work and return to their unit from work. The weekday, peak periods
for Publix and the residential component were analyzed in order to minimize vehicular conflicts.

Generally, for an apartment use during the 7:00 AM to 9:00 AM weekday period, 80% of the
traffic is outbound and 20% is inbound. Given the fairly low traffic volumes at Publix during this
same period, vehicular conflicts between Publix customers and apartment users are not a concern.

Generally, for an apartment use during the 4:00 PM to 6:00 PM weekday period, 35% of the
traffic is outbound and 65% is inbound. The inbound vehicular flow during this period is critical
to the apartment user. Those drivers want to get to their parking space with minimal conflicts.

The traffic count data also shows that Publix has a major peak period between 4:00 PM and 6:00
PM on a typical weekday. Given that Andalusia Avenue has the majority of the inbound vehicular
movements for Publix customers, a shared Publix/apartment access point is provided on Valencia
Avenue. Further, with downtown Coral Gables and downtown Miami both to the east of this site,
it is likely that most apartment users will have a return commute from work from the east making
westbound-only Valencia Avenue a better choice for access to the residential parking.

The proposed parking garage will have two access points: one on Andalusia Avenue and one on
Valencia Avenue. Both access points will be two-way. Parking for Publix customers will occur
Publix & Miracle 84
Traffic Study

Page 7
on the first and second levels of parking garage (P1 & P2). The apartment residents will park on
levels P3 and above.

The ramp from Andalusia Avenue will terminate at the P1 level. There will not be direct access
from Andalusia Avenue to levels P2 and above. However, there will be an internal ramp that
connects levels P1 and P2. Access from Valencia Avenue will be to levels P2 and above. There
will not be direct access from Valencia Avenue to P1. However, there will be an internal ramp
that connects levels P1 and P2.

Based on the existing traffic count data, the vast majority of Publix customers enters from
Andalusia Avenue and exits on Valencia Avenue. With the proposed parking garage access plan,
customers can still enter the site from Andalusia Avenue. If they park on P1, they can exit to
Valencia Avenue by using the internal ramp up to P2 and then using the P2 ramp to exit to
Valencia Avenue. The other option is to exit to Andalusia Avenue from P1, go east on Andalusia
Avenue, turn south on Salzedo Street, and then turn west on Valencia Avenue.

A summary of the access plan from Andalusia Avenue and Valencia Avenue is below.

Andalusia Avenue access:
Ingress for Publix customer to the most convenient parking from a two-way ramp that
terminates at P1; no direct ingress to P2.
Customer has direct egress to Andalusia Avenue from P1.
Customer access to P2 occurs via an internal ramp connecting P1 & P2.
Customer egress to Valencia Avenue from P2.
Valencia Avenue access:
Publix customer and apartment user share this access point.
Ingress for customer to P2; no direct access to P1.
Customer has direct egress to Valencia Avenue from P2.
Publix & Miracle 84
Traffic Study

Page 8
Customer access to P1 occurs via an internal ramp connecting P1 & P2.
Customer egress to Andalusia Avenue from P1.
Gate control is proposed north of P2 access point to prevent customer from using parking
on levels P3 and above (residents only).
Apartment user can access parking levels P3 and above.
Apartment user can exit to Valencia Avenue from this ramp.
If apartment user needs to enter from or exit to Andalusia Avenue, they will be able to
crossover using internal ramp connecting P1 and P2.

In summary, the proposed parking garage access plan provides ingress and egress from both
Andalusia Avenue and Valencia Avenue allowing current Publix customers similar access
patterns. The proposed access plan provides direct access to most convenient parking (P1) from
Andalusia Avenue because the traffic counts revealed this roadway has significantly more inbound
volume. Also, the proposed access plan uses Valencia Avenue as the shared access point for
residential users and Publix customers because it provides the least amount of vehicular conflicts.

2.0 EXISTING CONDITIONS

Data collection for this study included roadway characteristics, intersection traffic counts, signal
timing, and seasonal adjustment factors. The data collection effort is described in the following
sections.

2.1 Roadway Characteristics
LeJeune Road (SW 42
nd
Avenue/SR 953)
LeJ eune Road (SW 42
nd
Avenue/SR 953) is a major arterial that provides north/south access from
Cartagena Circle on the south, throughout the city of Coral Gables to the north. Within the study
area, LeJ eune Road is a two-way, four-lane, un-divided roadway with left turn lanes for vehicles
accessing major and minor streets. On-street parking is not permitted. The posted speed limit is
40 mph. The Florida Department of Transportation (FDOT) has jurisdiction over LeJ eune Road.
Andalusia Avenue
Andalusia Avenue is a minor street that runs east/west between LeJ eune Road and Douglas Road.
It is a 3 lane roadway, and it runs one-way eastbound. On-street parking is provided on both sides
throughout most of the roadway. The posted speed limit is 30 mph. The city of Coral Gables has
jurisdiction over Andalusia Avenue.
Valencia Avenue
Valencia Avenue is a minor street that runs east/west between LeJ eune Road and Douglas Road.
It is a 3 lane roadway, and it runs one-way westbound. On-street parking is provided on both
sides throughout most of the roadway. The posted speed limit is 30 mph. The city of Coral Gables
has jurisdiction over Valencia Avenue.
Salzedo Street
Salzedo Street is a local roadway that provides north/south access within the study area. It is a
two-way, four-lane, undivided roadway. On-street parking is not permitted between Valencia
Publix & Miracle 84
Traffic Study

Page 10
Avenue and Alhambra Circle. The posted speed limit is 30 mph. The city of Coral Gables has
jurisdiction over Salzedo Street within the project limits.

2.2 Traffic Counts
AM and PM peak period vehicle turning movement counts and 72-hour segment counts were
collected for the study area. The latest weekly volume adjustment factors were obtained from
FDOT. The weekly volume adjustment factor (for Miami-Dade County South) corresponding to
the dates of the counts was used to adjust the raw traffic counts to average weekly conditions.
Traffic counts are provided in Appendix C. Existing turning movement counts at the roadway
segments and intersections analyzed are graphically portrayed in Exhibit 3.

2.3 Intersection Data
Signal timing data was obtained from Miami-Dade County for the signalized intersection analyzed
in this study. Time of Day (TOD) Schedule Reports are included in Appendix C. This
information was included in the signal phasing and timing schedule for the intersection capacity
analysis. A field survey was conducted to obtain the roadway segment and intersection lane
configurations to be used in the analysis. Exhibit 4 shows the existing lane configuration for the
analyzed intersections and roadway segments.

2.4 Walking / Other Modes of Transportation
Pedestrian activity is an essential element within the Central Business District (CBD) of the city of
Coral Gables. With increasing residential uses within the CBD, the existing transit service that
includes Miami-Dade County Transit as well as the Coral Gables Trolley (which traverses the
Ponce de Leon Boulevard corridor providing access to Metrorail), and a combination of
surrounding land uses, pedestrian activity is expected between the project site and other nearby
destinations. Existing pedestrian facilities in the vicinity of the project are adequate and consistent
with the area.

2.5 Roadway Capacity Analysis
The FDOTs generalized service volume tables provide the maximum volume for a specific Level
of Service (LOS). LOS is a qualitative assessment of a roads operating conditions and is
represented by the letters A through F, where A is free flow (best condition) and F is the most
congested condition.

The proposed project is located within the city of Coral Gables GRID, which is a Transportation
Concurrency Exception Area established by the city to promote development within its
boundaries. In essence, this ordinance establishes that roadways within the geographical area of
the GRID are exempt from the citywide traffic LOS Standards. However, for purposes of this
study, the level of service standards listed in the Mobility Element of the city of Coral Gables
Comprehensive Plan were used to assess roadway operations in the area. Exhibit 5 shows
roadway link analysis for the study area segments based on the FDOT generalized peak hour
directional service volume tables. All roadways currently operate within the citys LOS standards

4.0 FUTURE TRAFFIC CONDITIONS

4.1 Background Traffic and Committed Developments
Average Daily Traffic (ADT) counts published by the Miami-Dade Public Works Department and
the FDOT were reviewed to determine historic growth in the area. This analysis indicated that
even though traffic has fluctuated in the past years, overall volumes have decreased in the area.
Historic traffic counts and background growth calculations are provided in Appendix E.
Consistent with standard procedures for traffic studies established by the Florida Department of
Transportation, a 0.5% annual growth rate was used for this study.

In addition, a list of approved developments was obtained from city staff. These developments are
approved and are either under construction or about to break ground. Two committed
developments were considered for estimating future traffic volumes in this study: Merrick Manor
and 4535 Ponce. Project information obtained from the traffic studies submitted to the city for
these developments is included in Appendix E. Exhibit 7 provides a summary of the trip
generation for each of these committed developments.

4.4 Project Trip Generation

Trip generation for the existing development and the proposed development program was
estimated using the Institute of Transportation Engineers (ITE) Trip Generation Manual, 9
th

Edition. This manual provides gross trip generation rates and/or equations by land use type.
These rates and equations estimate vehicle trip ends at a free-standing sites driveways.

The project site is located within the citys Central Business District (CBD). Pedestrian activity is
common between the exiting site and surrounding properties (including residential, office, retail,
restaurants, and services). The project site is also in an area served by bus routes from Miami-
Dade Transit and the Coral Gables trolley, both of these accesses the Douglas Road Metrorail
Station. A 10% adjustment was applied to the trip generation of the existing and proposed uses to
account for other modes of transportation.

The Trip Generation Handbook includes data on pass-by trips. Pass-by trips are trips attracted
from the passing traffic stream on an adjacent street into the site. Since the pass-by trips are not
new trips but are trips already on the street system, the total trip generation for both the existing
and the proposed uses was adjusted to estimate the new external traffic actually added to the street
system.

ITE recognizes that data obtained to establish trip generation rates and/or equations is collected at
single-use, free-standing sites, and that mixed-use developments provide a potential for interaction
of trips within the site, which must be accounted for separately. The proposed redevelopment is a
mixed-use project. Interaction between the proposed uses will result in some trips satisfied on-site
(internal trips). Internalization between the proposed uses was established based on the guidelines
in ITEs Trip Generation Handbook, 9
th
Edition. The internalization worksheets are provided in
Appendix F. The project trip generation summary is provided in Exhibit 11.

4.5 Project Trip Assignment
Project traffic was distributed and assigned to the study area using the Cardinal Distribution for
the Traffic Analysis Zone (TAZ) 1037 shown in Exhibit 12. The Cardinal Distribution gives a
generalized distribution of trips from a TAZ to other parts of Miami-Dade County. For estimating
trip distribution for the project traffic, consideration was given to conditions such as the roadway
network accessed by the project traffic, roadways available to travel in the desired direction, and
attractiveness of traveling on a specific roadway.

In addition, driveway counts were taken to assess the existing driveway usage. Counts are
provided in Appendix G. A summary of the existing driveway traffic counts is provided in
Exhibit 13. Since access will remain via both Andalusia Avenue and Valencia Avenue, the
existing driveway utilization was used for future traffic associated with the site.

5.0 PEDESTRIAN ISSUES

An inventory of pedestrian facilities in the area was undertaken as part of this study. A description
of the existing facilities is described below.
Sidewalks are existing on both side of all roadways abutting the project (LeJeune Road,
Salzedo Street, Andalusia Avenue and Valencia Avenue). The width and condition of all
sidewalks are appropriate for the area.
Textured (colored) crosswalks and pedestrian signals are provided at all legs of the
intersection of LeJeune Road with Andalusia Avenue.
Textured (colored) crosswalks are available on the north, east and west legs of the
intersection of LeJeune Road with Valencia Avenue. At this location, a pedestrian signal
is available only for the north leg of the intersection.
Striped crosswalks and pedestrian signals are available at all legs of the intersections of
Salzedo Street with Andalusia Avenue and Salzedo Street with Valencia Avenue.

A significant number of pedestrians were observed in the area roadways and intersections. In
general, intersections closer to Miracle Mile, downtown Coral Gables main street, were preferred
by area pedestrians. Pedestrian counts taken at the study intersections are summarized in Exhibit
19.

The signal phasing and timing plans were assessed for suitability of pedestrian crossings. This
assessment was done consistent with the recommendations published in the Manual on Uniform
Traffic Control Devices for Streets and Highways (MUTCD), by the U.S. Department of
Transportation. Appendix H contains the analysis performed for the signalized intersections under
study. The assessment sheet shows the following information:
1. Signal phasing and timing plan
2. Total roadway width as measured in the field
3. Normal walking speed obtained from the MUTCD
4. The total time required to cross the street based on 2 and 3 above
5. The minimum time required for the flashing Dont Walk indication calculated
based on the MUTCD recommendations.

Page 32
6. The minimum required Walk Indication, which is the difference between the total
time required to cross the street and theDont Walk indication or 4 to 7 seconds as
required by the MUTCD, which ever is longer.
7. The Yellow and All Red which is provided for the appropriate signal phase.

At all four intersections, analysis showed that there is sufficient pedestrian crossing time during
both existing and proposed signal timings (See Appendix C). Therefore, pedestrians will be
adequately served by the existing and proposed signal phasing and timing plan at signalized
intersections.

6.0 CONCLUSIONS

An assessment of the traffic impacts associated with the proposed project was performed in
accordance with the requirements of the city of Coral Gables. The analysis shows that the
analyzed roadway segments and intersections currently operate, and will continue to operate,
within the citys LOS standards for existing and future conditions with the project.

The suitability to accommodate pedestrians at the study intersections was also tested. The signal
timings at the analyzed intersection were found to be adequate for pedestrian movements.
Pedestrian mobility, within and around the site, is encouraged by providing pedestrian amenities,
and minimizing conflicts with vehicular traffic.
