This session will feature tools and methods for creating complete streets, from street design standards to new technologies for street planning. Presentations will show both urban and rural examples of achieving complete streets from pedestrian crossings to road diets. Learn about complete street projects that improve safety and connectivity while considering context and without breaking the bank and how to consider context given various regions and standards.

Learning Objectives:

  • Learn about tools uses to deliver complete streets project
  • Compare various context considerations when designing complete streets.
  • List plans, budgets, data, standards, and community plans to consider when implementing complete streets.
