This is a live, repeat presentation of a webinar that was originally offered on 02/16/2021 and 03/09/2021. Attendees of the previously offered presentations, RV-W021621 or RV-W051621, will not receive CEU for attending the 01/27/2022 presentation.

The growth of our cities and towns in the 20th century made our transportation networks and infrastructure to become more and more focused on automobiles. Even though with good intentions, the focus on just the automobile mode created a number of problems, such as traffic congestion, environmental damage, and health concerns. As a countermeasure, on the 21st Century, we have started to retrofit and develop our transportation network to focus on all transportation modes, providing equal access to public right-of-way to pedestrians, cyclists and transit users. As with any transportation facility, complete streets are much more difficult to implement within existing conditions than when building new corridors. Through this course, engineers, planners, architects, contractors and practitioners within the A/E/C industry will learn industry best practices for the development of transportation network and corridor plans which include complete streets and multi-modal accommodations, with the focus of making livable streets by planning for walkability and use of their surrounding communities.

Course Objectives
  • Describe at least one principle for the planning of walkable communities that promotes the health and safety of the community
  • Identify at least two responsibilities Metropolitan or Regional planning agencies have in order to maintain the welfare of the public within a 10 to 50 year horizon
  • Enumerate the five steps used in urban thoroughfare planning to promote social equity in the use of transportation networks
  • Given a community’s characteristics and building placement, identify the most suitable roadway corridor context that promotes inclusive transportation facilities for the safety and welfare of the community
