Road Diet Handbook: Setting Trends for Livable Streets
Road Diet Handbook: Setting Trends for Livable Streets is a comprehensive guide for practitioners on the decision-making of the applicability of road diets. A road diet entails removing travel lanes from a roadway and utilizing the space for other uses and travel modes. Improvements have generated benefits to users of all modes of transportation, including transit riders, bicyclists, pedestrians and motorists. The resulting benefits include reduced vehicle speeds; improved mobility and access; reduced collisions and injuries; and improved livability and quality of life. The Road Diet Handbook takes a practitioner through planning, analysis, design, and implementation of road diet projects. It includes guidelines for identifying and evaluating potential road diet sites, design concepts such as typical cross-sections, and lessons learned from experiences. The handbook assesses livability benefits for case studies around the world including improved mobility for all modes of transportation and enhanced street character, and provides overall guidelines for the implementation of road diets.
