Background:Streets comprise more than 80% of public space in cities, but they often fail to provide their surrounding communities with a space where people can safely walk, bicycle, drive, take transit, and socialize. A well-illustrated, concrete vision for the future of city streets, the Urban Street Design Guide charts the principles and practices of the nation’s foremost engineers, planners, and designers working in cities today. The Guide offers a blueprint for designing 21st century streets, and unveils the toolbox and the tactics cities use to make streets safer, more livable, and more economically vibrant. The Urban Street Design Guide is availalbe for purchase in the ITE Bookstore.
