The historical purpose of street design since the industrial revolution has been to move as much motorized traffic as quickly as possible from one point to another. Of course, street design standards vary from town to town, but in general street design generally focuses on moving cars and trucks. Now, times have changed. Increased population densities and mixed-use developments require the re-imagining of streets into places to move people, not vehicles. Thus, the old standards and dominant thought process for street design has become a legacy issue that we need to tackle in the 21st century. Through this course, engineers, planners, architects, contractors and practitioners within the A/E/C industry will learn the principles of developing complete streets to focus on the movement of people.

Course Objectives
At the end of this webinar you will be able to:
  • Identify at least three elements of a complete street that focus on the safety and welfare of the public.
  • Describe at least two benefits of complete streets that contribute to the economic prosperity, safety and health improvements to surrounding communities.
  • Given a specific community context, identify the priority that needs to be given to pedestrians, bicyclists, transit and vehicular traffic.
  • Given a street topology, a community context, develop a street typical section that serves users according to their priority and that improve the health, safety and welfare of the traveling public.
