Integrating Space and Time

How Signal Timing Adjustments Contribute to Safe, Multimodal Streets

Prevailing notions of complete streets tend to privilege spatial changes to the layout of a street over the allotment of time at a given intersection, along a corridor, or throughout a street network. As cities redesign their streets, they have increasingly found corridor-based signal timing schemes that create frustrating delays and undermine the balance sought in a multimodal street network. Learn from leading practitioners about the trade-offs to be considered between space and time, as well as other signalization strategies that can make cities function better in time, as well as space.
