Phase II, concluded in June 1996, included 202 miles of roads within the three jurisdictions. Phase III added 178 miles of roads within the jurisdictions of Lake County, the City of Lakeport and the City of Clearlake.

There are now a total of approximately 602 miles of road within the programs for all three systems. The Lake County database includes approximately 510 miles (which includes approximately 2 miles of pavement at the County’s airport facility); the City of Lakeport database now includes approximately 29 miles; and the City of Clearlake database now includes 63 miles.

Wine Country Interregional Partnership – Multi-year project with various consultants.

The Wine Country Interregional Partnership (IRP) was formed in the 2001/02 Fiscal Year to study the jobs/housing imbalance in the four county area of Lake, Mendocino, Napa, and Sonoma Counties.  There have been no previous Origin and Destination (O & D) studies undertaken by the Lake Area Planning Council, however Caltrans completed a simplified O & D study for the Hopland Bypass in 2000.  In December of 2006, an O & D study of Lake, Mendocino, Napa, and Sonoma Counties was completed under the umbrella of the Wine Country IRP.  The third phase of this project created a 4 county travel demand-forecasting model with a 2005 base year and 2015 and 2025 forecast years.

Transit Passenger Facilities Development Plan – LSC Transportation Consultants (September 2006)

Passenger facilities are particularly important in a transit service’s ability to attract “discretionary” riders, who have the option of the comfort and convenience of a private automobile.  The purpose of this report is two-fold.  The plan provides transit improvement standards appropriate to the specific conditions of the LTA service area.  These standards are intended to guide government agencies, commercial and residential developers, employers, and others in their efforts to provide attractive and safe transit facilities for the County’s transit patrons.  The plan also presents a recommended program of transit passenger facilities improvements that is based on the inventory of the existing stops throughout the County, a review of existing traffic conditions, pertinent elements of the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA), and the consultant’s findings regarding the most effective overall strategy for improving the quality of service provided to LTA’s passengers.
