ITE Urban Thoroughfares Project: Practitioners' Perspective

Description: 

6/2/06 11:30am-12:30pm

The vast majority of street design engineers rely on state and national design guides that often prevent the creation of walkable streets. This seminar addresses the issue with a review of the first-ever engineer-endorsed design guidelines. The joint CNU/ITE document, "Context Sensitive Solutions in Designing Major Urban Thoroughfares for Walkable Communities," represents two years of partnership between CNU and the Institute of Transportation Engineers (ITE). Released as a draft "recommended practice" from ITE, the manual is an example of just one of the initiatives realized by the CNU Project for Transportation Reform. Hear from developers and engineers how the new manual will transform their practice.
