Explore the concept of design flexibility and strategies to integrate new sources of design guidance with national standards when designing facilities for pedestrians and cyclists. Speakers discuss how agencies may select among treatments to improve safety, create better networks, and maximize efficiency. Case studies from Boston, Fort Lauderdale and Phoenix focus on lane width, traffic analysis, design speed, and resiliency (sustainability). Speakers share their challenges and successes in developing proactive approaches to achieving design flexibility.
View this webinar to understand the benefits of a flexible design approach to transportation planning and learn to apply four strategies to develop local capacity for design flexibility: (1) know the local context and standards; (2) frame choices in terms of safety, economy and sustainability; (3) collect data to tell a comprehensive story; (4) form partnerships and educate stakeholders and collaborators.
