Webcast: Is It Time to Stop Planning “Complete Streets”?
November 21, 2014 @ 1:00 pm - 2:30 pm
“Complete street” is a transportation term that refers to a corridor designed for all modes of transportation. Washington, DC has made national news for its emphasis on the fundamental modes of transportation – walking and biking. It’s also home to one of the most recognizable mass transit systems. So why would the District Department of Transportation propose a scenario that eliminates complete streets? How do they propose safely accommodating users from so many different modes of travel? This webcast will cover the following: 1) Trade-offs associated with physically separating travel modes; 2) Corridor planning vs. network planning; 3) Transportation mode hierarchy; and 4) Placemaking treatments based on street function.
