Design Fundamentals for Complete Streets

When: Tuesday, April 7,  2020, 2:00 - 3:30 PM ET

Developed by the ITE Traffic Engineering Council

Webinar Description:

Complete Streets are an essential building block in creating communities that are safer and enjoy a higher quality of life. Complete Streets work for everyone who uses them. They are safe,comfortable, and convenient for people of all ages and all abilities, from children bicycling to school to seniors walking to shop or visit friends when they can no longer drive. When a community has Complete Streets, its residents can choose to walk, bike, drive, or ride transit depending on their destinations.

The information presented in this webinar is obtained from Chapter 11 of the Traffic Engineering Handbook and is supplemented by even more recent design guidance. The presentation focuses on what Complete Streets are, their benefits, and how they can be successfully designed. Elements of street design for people walking, bicycling, and taking transit will be introduced. Participants will also learn about examples of successful Complete Streets implementation, as well as additional resources for more detailed information on design treatments.

Learning Objectives:
Attendees of this webinar will be able to:

  • Explain the fundamentals of Complete Streets benefits, policies, and design practices.
  • Describe how design controls are established to benefit all street users.
  • Recall available design tools that improve safety and mobility in a multimodal environment.
  • Identify broader Complete Streets design resources, standards, guides and technical tools for street designs that balance and meet the needs of all users.
