The West Elizabeth Enhanced Travel Corridor (ETC) Plan was adopted by City Council in October 2016. The City started the 30% design process in 2021.
ETCs are roadways that emphasize walking, biking and transit. The first ETC was the Mason Corridor, which now features MAX Bus Rapid Transit and the Mason Trail.
The West Elizabeth corridor already has high transit, bicycling and walking demand, and an ETC is a comprehensive tool that can help address some of the challenges on West Elizabeth, such as: • Overcrowded buses • A higher number of bike crashes than expected • Sidewalks in some locations that do not meet standards and are not comfortable for walking
