Every city has it: it’s your city’s leader in crashes. It’s probably five or seven lanes wide, has tens of thousands of cars per day, and traffic. It’s a big, wide, risky arterial, and this workshop will give a hands-on look at innovative approaches your city can use to tame it.
Join this Vision Zero workshop to 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 high-performing urban streets that are safe, efficient, and inviting. Building on last year’s workshop, this session will cover topics like lane reassignment and narrowing, walking-based intersection design techniques, and signal timing basics for big streets. Safety planning and prioritization techniques, as well as working with crash information and before-after evaluation, will also be described.
Learn innovative street design strategies, hear about high-impact case studies, and engage in hands-on design challenges. Participants will leave ready to tackle their most challenging streets.
