The benefits of moving to a Complete Streets design model amiller Fri, 06/17/2022 - 11:38 The benefits of moving to a Complete Streets design model. Now available On-Demand | Register Here A Complete Streets design model ensures that transportation planners and engineers consistently plan, design, operate and maintain the entire roadway and roadway networks with all users in mind — including bicyclists, public transportation vehicles and riders, and pedestrians of all ages and abilities. Complete Streets can incorporate a wide range of elements, such as sidewalks, bicycle lanes, bus lanes, crossing opportunities, median islands, roundabouts, accessible pedestrian signals, curb extensions, streetscape, and landscape treatments. This approach can reduce motor vehicle-related crashes, lower pedestrian risk, and improve cyclist safety. It promotes walking and bicycling by providing safer places to achieve physical activity and can increase business traffic in local communities. In this webinar, we will hear about two Complete Streets projects and discuss the challenges the designers faced, the tools they used, how they interacted with the community, and the benefits and outcomes. Learning Objectives: * Learn about elements of a Complete Streets design model * See how you can incorporate them into your roadway design * Hear from industry experts about real-life benefits and best practices SPEAKER BIOS John Cruikshank, PE, F.ASCE President & CEO, JMC2 Civil Engineering John Cruikshank is President & CEO of JMC2 Civil Engineering located in Southern California.
