APPROVAL OF MINUTES M/S/C (Harry/Boyd) to approve the minutes of July 20, 2009. Abstain: Jonasson 4. PUBLIC COMMENTS There were no public comments. 5. STATUS OF SAFETEA LU EXTENSION Shirley Medina, RCTC, indicated that Congressional representatives are looking at a three to eighteen month extension and it may be about September 30 when we receive information. The potential for an $8 billion rescission of apportionment balances is worrisome as well. There is strong support on the Senate side to repeal the rescission that would mean $800 million of apportionment balance that could be stripped from California. Those balances are accrued for within the state among the regions that allows us opportunities to reach beyond obligational authority levels and receive full apportionment levels. 6. 2010 STIP FUND ESTIMATE Ms. Medina reported that the 2010 STIP Fund Estimate has been released and it is expected that it will be approved in October along with an allocation plan for FY 2009/10 projects. There will be no new funding capacity and a lot of shifting out of projects from the first 3 years to the last 2 years. In the allocation plan for FY 2009/10, the highest priority projects will likely go to the Prop 1B programs — CMIA, TCIF and other related programs. 7. ARRA STATUS UPDATE Andrea Zureick, RCTC, reported that 6 of the 7 projects for which the Commission has allocated ARRA funds have been obligated by Caltrans. There is $16 million remaining to be obligated. Caltrans deadline for obligation of the funds is January 1. 8. 2008 RTIP UPDATE AND 2008 RTP AMENDMENT STATUS Grace Alvarez, RCTC, said that The 2008 RTIP amendments continue to be processed by SCAG and the reviewing agencies. In less than one year, since the adoption of the 2008 RTIP in October 2008, 24 amendments have been processed by SCAG, 18 of which RCTC has participated. Currently, there are three formal amendments pending approval • • Technical Advisory Committee Meeting September 21, 2009 Page 3 by the reviewing agencies - Amendment No's 20, 23, and 24. Amendment No. 20 completed the public review period on September 7th. The anticipated approval is sometime next week. Amendment No. 23 public review period will end on September 24th. The anticipated final approval is early October; and Amendment No. 24, that included the 2008 RTP Amendment No. 2 projects, was submitted to SCAG on September 9t'. This amendment approval will take a little bit longer due to the nature of the amendment that involves SCAG's board approval for the release of the draft 2008 RTP Amendment No. 2, for the 30-day public review period scheduled for October 5th through November 6th. Subsequently, SCAG will address the comments received during the 30-day public review period and present to their board on December 3rd, the revised document for approval and release to the funding agencies. The anticipated approval of the 2008 RTP Amendment No. 2 and the 2008 RTIP Amendment No. 24 is spring 2010. Additionally, one administrative modification was submitted to SCAG on September 17th. The anticipated approval date is early October. For your use and information, a listing of the projects in each amendment, including those under review, is the second attachment to the staff report for this item. 9. 2011 RTIP/FTIP UPDATE Andrea Zureick stated that a -mails were sent to the TAC regarding the 2011 FTIP, which is the new name for the 2010 RTIP. The 2011 FTIP is due to SCAG on December 7, 2009. She said that she and Grace Alvarez will be available to review programming questions or changes with agencies. Project changes for existing projects should be submitted to RCTC by Monday, October 12. For new projects, forms should be submitted to RCTC by Monday, October 19. She called attention to the Adoption Schedule for the 2011 FTIP that is attached to her staff report. 10. CALTRANS LOCAL ASSISTANCE REPORT • CHANGES IN STAFF ASSIGNMENTS • NEW INVOICE PROCEDURES Patrick Hally, Caltrans Local Assistance, stated that regarding the new invoice procedures, instead of the local agencies sending the invoices to headquarters now all the invoices will come through District Local Assistance for review and then they will forward them to headquarters. Local Assistance has been restructured and there is a change in staff assignments. John Pagano has been put in the DLAE position with Sean Yeung overseeing Riverside County and Patrick Hally overseeing San Bernardino County. In all correspondence, contact the area engineer, Sean and John Pagano. Bill Mosby will attend the TAC meetings. Caltrans will send an organizational chart to the local agencies. Within the next month, the district will have the ability to assign federal project numbers (FPN) for projects. Technical Advisory Committee Meeting September 21, 2009 Page 4 11. FY 2009/10 TUMF PROGRAM BUDGET ADJUSTMENTS/PROGRAMMING RECOMMENDATIONS Shirley Medina reported that staff has been meeting with the public works committee for TUMF regional arterial projects to review FY 2009/10 to make sure that all the projects under agreement can continue to progress and be reimbursed. Once an assessment was made that all the commitments can be met, staff reviewed the ability to program new phases. Although there was not much funding left, about $6-10 million of programming capacity, staff acknowledged the cities that requested new programming. Moreno Valley requested funding for two segments on Perris Boulevard and Lake Elsinore requested $1 million on their I-15 Railroad Canyon IC project on the environmental phase. The county of Riverside requested reprogramming about $4 million from the county's eastern bypass projects to the SR-79 Domenigoni right of way phase. The committee also looked at holding off on all future programming requests until such time that revenues increase. Revenues and expenditures will be reviewed in about six months. Paul Blackwelder, RCTC, added that there are a number of budget adjustments scheduled for the October Commission meeting to adjust funds that were estimated to be billed prior to the close of FY 2008/09, but were not billed until after July 1st. 12. RIVTAM MEMORANDUM OF UNDERSTANDING Patty Romo, Riverside County, referred to the latest MOU attached to the agenda. She stated that there have been inquiries about running new models. She reviewed the MOU, pointing out the following: • Agreement • Maintenance • Use by agencies • Updating RivTAM • Use by entities other than the agencies • Technical guidelines • Request for Qualifications (will be published mid -October) The cost for running the model will be borne by whoever is running the model. Updating RivTAM will be done by Riverside County. The county will notify the agencies as changes are made. Ms. Romo indicated that the county anticipates approval by the next committee meeting so that the MOU can be approved. It is hoped that by the next TAC meeting, a date for selecting a consultant will be set and anyone wishing to participate in that process should let Ms. Romo know. • • • • • • Technical Advisory Committee Meeting September21, 2009 Page 5 13.

Respectfully submitted, Shirley Medina Programming and Planning Manager • • • RIVERSIDE COUNTY TRANSPORTATION COMMISSION DATE: October 19, 2009 TO: Technical Advisory Committee FROM: Shirley Medina, Programming and Planning Manager SUBJECT: 2009 Congestion Management Program Update STAFF RECOMMENDATION: This item is for the Technical Advisory Committee to review and comment on the 2009 Draft Congestion Management Program. BACKGROUND INFORMATION: The Congestion Management Program (CMP) was first established in 1990 under Proposition 111. CMP legislation required the designation of a Congestion Management Agency. The Commission became the designee in June 1990. In 1996, the state changed the status of the CMP from a mandatory program to a voluntary program; however, federal Congestion Management System requirements were still in effect that focused more on system monitoring. Therefore, the Commission restructured the CMP's direction on meeting CMS requirements while maintaining a portion of the CMP elements. The Riverside County CMP is updated every two years. The draft 2009 CMP is scheduled for release the week of October 19, 2009. An overview of the draft 2009 CMP will be presented to the TAC at the October and November meetings for review and comment. The 2009 CMP is scheduled for approval at the December 9, 2009 Commission meeting. • • RIVERSIDE COUNTY TRANSPORTATION COMMISSION DATE: October 19, 2009 TO: Technical Advisory Committee FROM: Andrea Zureick, Senior Staff Analyst THROUGH: Shirley Medina, Programming and Planning Manager SUBJECT: American Recovery and Reinvestment Act Update STAFF RECOMMENDATION: Receive and File BACKGROUND INFORMATION Riverside County received $72.3 million in highway funding through the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act (ARRA).

BACKGROUND INFORMATION: The County of Riverside served as the lead agency for the development of a countywide transportation model. Funding participants included County of Riverside, CVAG, WRCOG, and RCTC. At the September TAC meeting, a draft of the RivTAM MOU was distributed for the TAC to review and comment. The MOU outlines how the model will be maintained and updated. Riverside County updated the MOU per comments received and is now wishing to receive support from the TAC for the RivTAM MOU. Staff will present the TAC's recommendation regarding the MOU to the November Commission meeting. MOU FOR RIVTAM MODEL MAINTENANCE, UPDATE, AND USAGE 9/16/2009 WHEREAS the Riverside County Transportation Department (RCTD), the Riverside County Transportation Commission (RCTC), the Western Riverside Council of Governments (VVRCOG), and the Coachella Valley Association of Governments (CVAG) jointly funded the development of the Riverside County Traffic Analysis Model (RIVTAM) using TransCAD software, WHEREAS the Southern California Association of Governments (SCAG) and the California Department of Transportation (Caltrans) participated actively in the development of RIVTAM by providing data, guidance, and reviewing RIVTAM materials and results, WHEREAS SCAG and Caltrans have determined that RIVTAM has been developed in conformance with accepted modeling practices and standards, WHEREAS RCTD, ROTC, WRCOG, CVAG, SCAG, and Caltrans wish to ensure that sub -area models developed for use in Riverside County be consistent with RIVTAM, WHEREAS RCTD, ROTC, WRCOG, CVAG, SCAG, and Caltrans agree that -- • RIVTAM will provide a consistent tool for cities and the County to evaluate their plans, programs and projects, WHEREAS RCTD, RCTC, WRCOG, CVAG, SCAG, and Caltrans agree that RIVTAM should be used as the forecasting tool for countywide transportation planning purposes, WHEREAS RCTD, RCTC, WRCOG, CVAG, SCAG, and Caltrans encourage incorporated Cities in Riverside County to use RIVTAM as the basis for their own transportation planning purposes, where appropriate, WHEREAS RCTD, RCTC, WRCOG, CVAG, SCAG, and Caltrans encourage private entities, such as developers and consultants to use RIVTAM as the basis for their own transportation planning purposes in Riverside County, where appropriate, NOW THEREFORE, RCTD, RCTC, WRCOG, CVAG, SCAG, and Caltrans (collectively, the Agencies) agree as follows: RIVTAM Maintenance RCTD will maintain official versions of RIVTAM for base year and several horizon years. RIVTAM routine maintenance activities include: • Incorporating into RIVTAM any updates made by the Cities or the AGENCIES due to changes in plans and programs; - 2 - • • • • • • Corrections, such as facility type or number of lanes that may arise during the use of RIVTAM by the AGENCIES, Cities, or other entities; • Documenting and keeping a record of all model revisions and corrections; • Informing the AGENCIES of revisions and corrections; • Responding, at no cost, to minor data requests, such as daily traffic volume plots, by the AGENCIES, Cities, or other entities; • Other tasks that may be needed by agreement of the AGENCIES. Use of RIVTAM by the AGENCIES RCTD, CVAG, Ca[trans and SCAG have licensing agreements with Caliper Corporation and have the capability to use RIVTAM in-house; RCTC and WRCOG would need licensing agreements with Caliper should they desire to use RIVTAM in-house; Since the AGENCIES anticipate the need to engage the services of consultants from time to time to run RIVTAM, the AGENCIES will establish a list of three to five consulting firms qualified to perform such services and use no consultants other than those on the list of qualified consultants; RCTD will lead the AGENCIES' joint effort to compile the list of qualified consultants, by issuing a Request for Qualifications and forming a selection committee; - 3 - AGENCIES that need a consultant to run RIVTAM, will select a consultant from the AGENCIES' list of qualified consultants; • Each AGENCY shall bear the cost for its own use and running of RIVTAM. Updating RIVTAM The AGENCIES agree that updates to RIVTAM may be necessary in response to changes in the plans and programs of the AGENCIES, or other reasons. Each AGENCY shall bear the cost of updating RIVTAM for its own purposes; ROTC, WRCOG, CVAG, SCAG, and Caltrans will notify RCTD when they make changes in plans and programs that will necessitate updating the official version of RIVTAM; RCTD will make updates, as appropriate, and inform RCTC, WRCOG, CVAG, • SCAG, and Caltrans when updates are made to the official version of RIVTAM; The AGENCIES, or their consultants, will not make any updates that are not consistent with RIVTAM modeling concepts and assumptions; Periodic updates of RIVTAM will be considered at such time as SCAG adopts new Socio-Economic forecasts, and only be made when the updates affect the RIVTAM consistency with SCAG's Regional Modeling assumptions. RCTC, WRCOG, CVAG, and RCTD will negotiate the cost of such major updates and make a recommendation for funding. - 4 - • • • • Use of RIVTAM by entities other than the AGENCIES RIVTAM was designed to address most city and county level modeling needs in Riverside County. The model inputs and zone system were designed with sufficient detail to support most city/County planning applications. The modeling methodology can support the evaluation of a range of highway, HOV and transit scenarios. The Agencies encourage the use of RIVTAM by Cities and private entities for their own transportation planning purposes. Universal use of RIVTAM by the Agencies, Cities, private entities, and their consultants will ensure that planning decisions in Riverside County are made based on accurate and consistent travel forecasts; Off -the -shelf modeling results and data, such as daily and peak hourly traffic volume forecasts from completed RIVTAM runs will be available to Cities directly from RCTD at no cost. Private entities will be requested to pay a fee for such data retrieval and transmittal; Requests by Cities or private entities, entailing extensive data retrieval, or additional modeling analysis, and/or model runs will require the payment of a negotiated fee to RCTD or a contract directly with the consultants on the AGENCIES' list of qualified consultants to make the necessary RIVTAM runs; The full set of RIVTAM files (all files needed to run RIVTAM) will be released only to the AGENCIES, to Cities in Riverside County, and to the consultants on the AGENCIES' list of qualified consultants; - 5 - Requests for the full set of RIVTAM files will be made directly to RCTD in a letter from the requesting City. The request shall include a detailed list of the needed items, the model's scope of work, and intended uses of the model. Technical Guidelines The AGENCIES will require that any entity that develops a sub -area model based on RIVTAM for its own use must demonstrate, by submitting appropriate documentation, that the entity's finished model is consistent with RIVTAM before the model can be used for any purpose that affects the AGENCIES; Consistency documentation will be reviewed and a consistency determination will be made jointly by an appointed committee of the AGENCIES; Consistency guidelines will be developed by a technical task force that may include representatives of the AGENCIES, Riverside County cities, members of the consultant community, and others. - 6 - • • • • • RIVERSIDE COUNTY TRAFFIC ANALYSIS MODEL (RivTAM) EXECUTIVE SUMMARY The County of Riverside Transportation Department (RCTD), with the cooperation of the Western Riverside Council of Governments (WRCOG), The Coachella Valley Council of Governments (CVAG), the Riverside County Transportation Commission (RCTC), The Southern California Association of Governments (SCAG), and the California Department of Transportation (Caltrans), completed the development of the Riverside County Traffic Analysis Model (RivTAM) in May 2009. RivTAM is a TransCAD model, based on SCAG's Regional Transportation Model that SCAG used in developing the 2035 Regional Transportation Plan (RTP). TransCAD is the name of a commercially - available software package used for transportation system modeling. TransCAD has very good graphic presentation and data retrieval capabilities due to its integration with Geographic Information Systems (GIS) and the associated capabilities. SCAG's Regional Transportation Model encompasses a large geographic area that consists of the Counties of Imperial, Los Angeles, Orange, Riverside, San Bernardino, and Ventura. Because of the size of the area, the SCAG model lacks the degree of detail, that is often necessary for transportation planning at the County and local jurisdiction levels. RivTAM incorporates a great deal of detail in Riverside County, while maintaining consistency with the SCAG Regional Model. Listed below are the benefits the County and other entities will gain using RivTAM: RivTAM has been validated to a finer level of detail than the SCAG Regional Model. The SCAG model has been validated for 2003 as the base year. Model validation is the process whereby traffic estimates for individual roadways are compared to actual ground counts on those roadways. For RivTAM, the validation base year was set at 2007. Traffic counts were made at over 300 locations late in 2007 and early 2008. These counts, supplemented by counts available from Caltrans and local jurisdictions, were used in the RivTAM validation process. The SCAG Regional Model validation within Riverside County addressed five traffic flow corridors and about 50 individual segments in these corridors. For RivTAM about 46 traffic flow corridors and about 350 individual roadway segments within these corridors were analyzed. The Traffic Analysis Zone (TAZ) system in RivTAM is more detailed than the SCAG Regional Model. Within Riverside County, the SCAG model has 478 Traffic Analysis Zones (TAZ). These 478 TAZs were subdivided into 1,807 in RivTAM. This finer level of TAZ disaggregation, coupled with a finer roadway network, yields to better traffic forecasts on individual roadway segments. I RivTAM has a more detailed roadway network than the SCAG Regional Model. RivTAM added 570 centerline miles of roadways to the network in the SCAG Regional Model. RivTAM incorporates all facilities in the Riverside County General Plan, classified as Secondary and above. In addition some Collectors are included, as necessary, to insure that all TAZs are connected to the network of General Plan roadways. RivTAM is fully consistent with the SCAG Regional Model in all technical and procedural aspects. RivTAM does not alter any of the SCAG Regional Model assumptions and parameters. Data inputs for areas outside of Riverside County are identical to the SCAG Regional Model. Within Riverside County more refined data is incorporated as described above. RivTAM is the product of a truly cooperative multi -agency effort. Staff of the participating agencies met at the policy and technical levels on over 30 occasions to review work products, provide direction to the project consultant, and to discuss a variety of matters. The agencies also collaborated by providing applicable data, reports, and other information. 2 • ........--• • TECHNICAL ADVISORY COMMITTEE f, AGENCY I TAC MEMBER I ALTERNATE BANNING DUANE BURK Director of Public Works BEAUMONT KISHEN PRATHIVADI Assistant Director of Public Works BLYTHE !JIM RODKEY Public Works Director CVAG I ALLYN WAGGLE CALIMESA CARLOSZAMANO City Engineer CAL TRANS d~) CANYON LAKE I HABIB MOTLAGH City Engineer CATHEDRAL I BILL BAYNE CITY COACHELLA jPAULTOOR Public Works Director CORONA KIP FIELD Kahono Oei Dee Moorjani I Kevin Nelson Assistant Public Works Director I Mike Shoberg Bob French Public Works Director I sill Mosby Pavel Hom Tony Lucero Robert Morin Acting Public Works Director I Principal" Civil Engineer DESERT HOT [JONATHAN HOY SPRINGS Public Works Director /City Engineer October 19, 2009 PRINT NAME SIGNATURE kAHoN"t> 6i;i' Ok-k I.SH trJ p 12-~ 1 KI v A 'D I /,A P·{,-~s.·N-.. __ ,-·7 --~-.J> ft,~5~ L?ar/o; 2atw111J J3JL.L. ~ .... ~~~ £~~ J 6 N~thco1 D.
