Streets comprise more than 80% of public space in cities, but they often fail to provide their surrounding communities with a space where people can safely walk, bicycle, drive, take transit, and socialize.
Cities are leading the movement to redesign and reinvest in our streets as cherished public spaces for people, as well as critical arteries for traffic.
The Urban Street Design Guide charts the principles and practices of the nation’s foremost engineers, planners, and designers working in cities today.
A blueprint for designing 21st century streets, the Guide unveils the toolbox and the tactics cities use to make streets safer, more livable, and more economically vibrant.
The Guide outlines both a clear vision for complete streets and a basic road map for how to bring them to fruition.
