A “Complete Streets” Approach to Getting from Place to Place
May 20, 2010
On May 20, 2010, Mary Raulerson of Kittelson & Associates presented a workshop in Portland, Oregon which introduced and illustrated best practices in the field of "Complete Streets" using case studies she has been directly involved with around the country. During the workshop, special attention was given to the obstacles that had to be overcome and the solutions that worked. The goal of this session was to help identify and tailor practices that will further strengthen the region’s move toward creating, connecting and complimenting great places with great multimodal rights-of-way.
PennDOT's Smart Transportation Guidebook was referenced in this presentation. You can access an electronic version of that document HERE.
