Webinar: Complete Streets Design Practicum | October 29, 3:00 to 4:15 p.m. Eastern
Free for APBP members! Click here to register

In this inquiry-based webinar, two National Complete Streets Coalition workshop instructors model how they approach challenging or complex design problems that arise from balancing the needs of multiple modes and users in varying transportation and land use contexts. The objective of this webinar is not to provide design solutions, but rather to demonstrate approaches to and aspects of the solution process. Participants observe and participate in the iterative process of developing design alternatives for a complete street in three different contexts.

FHWA Memorandum: Bicycle and Pedestrian Design Flexibility

In August, FHWA released a memorandum expressing their support for taking a flexible approach to bicycle and pedestrian facility design. The memo affirms that, "The National Association of City Transportation Officials (NACTO) Urban Bikeway Design Guide and the Institute of Transportation Engineers (ITE) Designing Urban Walkable Thoroughfares guide builds upon the flexibilities provided in the AASHTO guides, which can help communities plan and design safe and convenient facilities for pedestrian and bicyclists. FHWA supports the use of these resources to further develop nonmotorized transportation networks, particularly in urban areas.”

Designing Urban Walkable Thoroughfares is an ITE Recommended Practice that guides practitioners through applying a context sensitive approach throughout planning and design.
