Streets serve as critical connection network between people and places. Access, reliability, and safety of roads and traffic control devices play an important role in economic and community development. During the last few decades, transportation design has typically catered only to vehicle travel. Now, new concepts have taken root; “Complete Streets” and “Transport Demand Management,” returning streets to designs that are less of a fast-track for cars, and more as a complex cooperative infrastructure network for pedestrian, bicycle, and vehicle travel.
Join the Alliance for a live virtual event with Paul Mackie, Director of Research and Communications with the Arlington County, Virginia Mobility Lab and Randall Rutsch, Senior Transportation Planner with the City of Boulder, Colorado on February 28, for a review of their cutting edge, but impactful transportation strategies.
Key session takeaways include:
- Current issues with implementation being addressed and the critical actions taken
- Reasons for new approaches and supporting research
- Innovation in perspective
- Lessons learned and strategies for success
- Complete Streets? They “accommodate all modes of transportation by keeping pedestrians, bikes, buses and cars in mind as facilities are planned, designed and constructed.” Learn more about Boulder, CO’s complete streets and master plan!
- Transportation Demand Management? Mobility Lab defines TDM as “…the flip side of infrastructure. It focuses on helping people use the infrastructure in place for transit, ridesharing, walking, biking, telework, and driving.” Learn more at mobilitylab.org!
