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. How can we fix it?
Join this workshop for a hands-on look at innovative approaches your city can use to tame speeds and improve safety on dangerous arterials. In this 201-level workshop, we’ll focus on honing the tools needed to implement uncontrolled / mid-block crossings, analyze 5-to-3 and 4-to-3 conversions, and evaluate turn-calming treatments. We’ll also walk through how signal timing improvements can limit drivers’ opportunity to speed, and discuss strategies for making these changes in your city.
