Intuitive Intersection Design

For city streets to meet the needs and demands of everyone using them, intersections—both large and small—need to function as safely and efficiently as possible. Good intersection design, however, goes beyond making streets safer. Well-designed intersections use street space to bring people together and invigorate a city, while making traffic more intuitive, seamless, and predictable for those passing through. This session will untangle complex intersections, presenting strategies to facilitate visibility and predictability for all users. Topics will include signal timing, pedestrian desire lines, retrofitting excess space in irregular or overbuilt intersections, and mitigating conflicts between users.
