Workshop: Modernizing Large Urban Arterials for Increased Mobility

Cities are shifting priorities to accommodate growing numbers of cyclists, pedestrians, and transit users on urban arterial, posing questions on how best to allocate limited right-of-way for different modes. This session will present innovative approaches from the Alameda County Multimodal Arterial Plan, provide thinking on how next-generation vehicles and demographic trends may affect design consideration, and will culminate in an interactive design challenge. For the challenge, attendees will form groups to experiment with street cross-section designs fro a San Francisco arterial case study. Selected designs will then be evaluated using performance-based and comfort-base metrics.
