Here are streets that are more than just conduits for cars—they are places that support social and economic life, walking, bicycling, and transit
The following video covers examples from around the US of busy, automobile-oriented thoroughfares that were transformed into complete streets using design that responds to urban context.
CNU wrote the case studies for a new book by the Institute of Transportation Engineers called Implementing Context Sensitive Design on Multimodal Corridors, a Practitioner’s Handbook.
The book is a long-awaited follow-up to the influential CNU/ITE manual Designing Walkable Urban Thoroughfares. Enjoy the video.
