Abstract

Nantucket is a small island with a historic charm that attracts numerous tourists during the summer months. This influx of tourists combined with the historic, narrow, cobblestone roads and a limited parking supply leads to a multitude of parking problems. The goals of our project were to improve traffic flow in the downtown area, and to improve parking management. To achieve these goals our team had to determine the current on-street conditions, proposes solutions, evaluate new parking management systems, and then solicit feedback from various stakeholders. Some of the results of this project are a list of potential street redesigns with photoshopped concept pictures, an improved parking inventory process, and a decision matrix for evaluating parking management technology systems.
