Trends, Planning Tools, and Design Innovations for Pedestrian Safety and Walkability

OnDemand Webinar (78 minutes)

With an increased focus on complete streets, public health, and sustainability; numerous new devices and planning tools; and limited funding for projects, providing safe walking facilities for all is both a challenge and opportunity.

This OnDemand Webinar will present the latest planning tools and design innovations for enhancing pedestrian safety and walkability. It will focus on recent trends such as climate change, active transportation, safety and security, and funding. Planning tools discussed will include GIS innovations, crosswalk policies, complete streets policies, and multi-modal level of service. Additionally, this program will present design innovations for pathways, controlled and uncontrolled crossings, and accommodations for disabled pedestrians. Case study examples, with success stories and lessons learned, will be featured.

Learning Objectives:

  • You will be able to review trends in pedestrian planning.
  • You will be able to discuss what makes a street walkable.
  • You will be able to explain crosswalk policies.
  • You will be able to describe design innovations.
