Scarborough Downs Transportation


The Downs development is a proposed multi-phase redevelopment that will eventually include all the Scarborough Downs property.  The proposed land uses in the project are estimated to generate 2,505 AM and 3,301 PM weekday peak hour trip ends and 2873 Saturday peak hour trips. The Downs property is currently accessed via Scarborough Downs Road and is located between Route 1, Haigis Parkway, and Payne Road in Scarborough.  In addition, the site is proposing a new access road, Center Street, connecting Haigis Parkway and the Scarborough Downs Road. Along with these improvements, the size of the project will require significant off-site improvements all along the RT 1 corridor, Payne Rd., and North Scarborough to mention a few.
