- To achieve a circulation system that is primarily pedestrian-oriented within each functional area.
- To achieve a circulation system that minimizes private vehicle movement between functional areas, and optimizes
pedestrian, bicycle, and CAMBUS movement.
- To enhance CAMBUS routes and consider alternative vehicles/modes to allow pedestrians to travel areas of campus beyond
a ten-minute walk in the least amount of time.
- To encourage a system of peripheral and assure efficient pedestrian and CAMBUS connections
from peripheral parking to campus destinations.
- Provide separation of vehicle and pedestrian traffic where major conflicts exist.
- Initiate appropriate incentive and disincentive schemes (expanded CAMBUS system, safe pedestrian connections, parking
fees, etc.) to limit the number of cars brought to campus each day.
- Work with the City of Iowa City, Coralville, University Heights, Johnson County, and the Iowa Department of
Transportation to minimize non-University destined traffic on campus.
- Assign parking spaces as close to motorist's primary destination as possible.
Goals - Roadways
- To insure that all segments of the campus are accessible to those who require vehicle transportation such as
emergency, service functions, and those with mobility problems.
- To insure that University of Iowa Health Center, Hancher Auditorium, Athletic Event Facilities, the Iowa Memorial Union,
and other University facilities serving a regional clientele have adequate motor vehicle access and parking.
- To minimize the amount of traffic that passes through the campus and minimize the impact on the academic environment
occasioned by those arterial streets that pass through campus.
- Minimize the amount of land allocated to vehicular use.
Objectives - Roadways
- Assume Riverside Drive and Iowa Avenue bridge will remain open to traffic in the foreseeable future.
Goals - CAMBUS
- To insure the CAMBUS system supports the pedestrian-oriented campus concept.
Objectives - CAMBUS
- CAMBUS operations should connect peripheral parking areas to the campus during all the hours campus facilities are open.
- Provide a level of service that responds to legitimate demands for transit service but does not conflict with other
University goals and objectives.
- Coordinate with Iowa City and Coralville transit systems and supplement their systems where improved service to campus
users would occur.
- Redesign streets, parking areas, and other CAMBUS routes to
permit easy and safe loading and unloading of passengers.
Goals - Bicycle
- To facilitate use of bicycle movement to, from, and within the campus while minimizing conflicts with pedestrians.
- To provide adequate bicycle parking.
Objectives - Bicycle
- Provide a system of safe, convenient bikeways connecting all major areas of campus and connecting with bikeways
provided by adjoining communities.
- Provide and maintain bicycle racks convenient to entrances of buildings.
- To make the most of the natural scenic potential of the campus, especially the Iowa River and its adjacent floodplain
and wooded areas.
- To preserve and protect the river as a drainage way and as a source of water for community use.
- To provide a system of interconnected open space.
- To provide ample and adequately distributed areas within the campus both for active and passive outdoor activities.
- Open space areas free of motor vehicle traffic and parking should be provided and maintained within each functional
- Campus sites that possess significant natural features (i.e., Quad Ravine and Hutchinson Quarry) should be preserved.
- Continuous pathways shall be provided and maintained along both sides of the Iowa River.
- Parking should not be located on the riverbank and existing parking adjacent to the river should be removed
- Providing visual and physical access to the river is an important objective in building design and placement.
- Utilize open space facilities to unify the various parts of the campus.
