Picture your city’s biggest, widest, most risky arterial. It probably has lots of lanes, lots of cars, frequent crashes and injuries, and traffic swinging from stop-and-go to fast-and-furious. Join this workshop for a hands-on look at innovative approaches your city can use to tame these arterials.
In this Vision Zero workshop, you’ll learn from cities that have tackled their most dangerous streets, wielding the entire engineering toolbox to not only reduce fatalities and injuries, but to transform these important corridors into efficient, inviting urban places.
Building on last year’s workshop, the NACTO Urban Street Design Guide, and the successful work of your peer cities, this session will cover topics like lane reassignment and narrowing, walking-based intersection design techniques, and scalable signal timing for big streets. We’ll also talk about safety planning and prioritization techniques, tips for working with crash data and before-after evaluation, and changing speed limits to align with safety goals. Then we’ll roll up our sleeves and redesign a series of complex streets and intersections from around Toronto! Participants will leave ready to tackle their most challenging streets.
