Cities are innovating, designing new approaches to the trickiest area in street design—the intersection—and in the process, reducing turning speeds, increasing the visibility of people walking, biking, or rolling, and giving priority at intersections for people-focused modes.
Protected and dedicated intersections create safer crossing not just for those on bike, but for everyone using the street. In this session, we’ll dive into the world of the intersection, and review cutting-edge treatments from the eyes of every mode, with detailed walk, roll, ride, and drive-throughs. Based on NACTO’s new design resource, Don’t Give Up at the Intersection, this session will show how each element of the intersection—geometry, signals, movements—work hand-in-hand to make the street work for everyone.
