Complete Streets in Constrained Corridors: Resolving Conflicts and Balancing Users

The 20th century objective of urban streets — moving large volumes of motor vehicles as quickly as possible — is under revision. Today, cities are striving to restore balance in the right-of-way, often creating tension between competing modes and rival interests. In narrow streets especially, cities must retrofit the street design to accommodate people traveling on foot, by bike, by transit and in cars, all while creating a safe, attractive public realm. Complete Streets in Constrained Corridors will explore how municipalities are working to moderate these conflicts and prioritize users for select corridors, without sacrificing safety or compromising a project’s intent.
