Introduction to Implementing Context Sensitive Design on Multimodal Corridors: An ITE Handbook

This webinar will provide an overview of ITE’s new handbook, expected for release in November 2017, on implementing context sensitive design along multimodal corridors in urban and suburban environments. This handbook builds on the recommended practices presented in the 2010 ITE publication, “Design Walkable Urban Thoroughfares: A Context Sensitive Approach”, and includes an expanded focus on topic areas such as freight accommodations, speed management, and context sensitive design in lower density urban and built-up suburban environments. A number of real-world case studies are also included in the handbook, to demonstrate the medium- and long-term impacts of successful context sensitive design projects. The webinar will provide background information on the topic of context sensitive design, as well as highlight the different technical areas and design issues addressed by the handbook. 

Learning Objectives

  • Review the state of practice in Context Sensitive Design, including gaps around practitioners in lower density urban and built-up suburban environments
  • Understand how the Context Sensitive Design Implementation Handbook complements that 2010 ITE Recommended Practice on Context Sensitive Design
  • Identify key topics around which the Handbook is structured, including project development, multimodal design tradeoffs, and pedestrian mobility and safety
  • See how several real-world context sensitive design projects have resulted in substantial added value and community livability 5+ years after their completion
