Complete Streets Introduction and Federal/State Perspective

March 29 @ 10:00 am - 12:00 pm

This webinar will introduce the concepts of Complete Streets and how to create streets that are safe and functional for all users. Those concepts start from an overview of the role of streets as public spaces and the various land use contexts and functions that streets need to provide in communities. Complete Streets approaches will be introduced, including how to identify place-based priorities and criteria, such as design speeds and non-motorized facility types appropriate for those contexts. The webinar will provide examples of real-world situations and strategies to address the typical planning and design issues encountered from individual street corners to system-level management. It is ideal for those working in the fields of engineering, planning, architecture, land development, health, recreation, law enforcement, or elected officials, and will introduce the various topics, design approaches, and applicable references of Complete Streets.

After the introduction to Complete Streets, FHWA will discuss Complete Streets from a national perspective and how it fits into the Safe Systems Approach which has shifted the paradigm on how we view traffic safety. After which, FDOT will describe how the statewide Complete Streets program uses context-based planning and design as a framework to provide complete streets.

This webinar is brought to you by the Federal Highway Administration (FHWA), Florida Department of Transportation (FDOT), and the Florida LTAP Center, and kicks off a series of webinars on Complete Streets that will be offered throughout 2022.
