Workshop: Complete Streets in Constrained Corridors: Resolving Conflicts and Balancing Users

Following the Complete Streets in Constrained Corridors panel, workshop participants will put the strategies they’ve learned from Los Angeles, Vancouver, and Seattle into practice in a hands-on design exercise. Post Street, an arterial street adjacent to Union Square and steps from the conference venue, will serve as the subject of the workshop. Of modest width yet home to a transit lane and also a planned bike route, the street is very much a constrained corridor, called on to serve many different users and functions and connecting to other key facilities. Participants will be challenged to balance these competing demands, making trade-offs and allocating space so as to create not only a great street but also a great place.
