PEDS Workshop – Designing Streets for Pedestrian Safety
September 24, 2012 @ 8:00 am - 4:30 pm
Designing Streets for Pedestrian Safety is a highly visual, hands-on workshop hosted by PEDS and customized for Metro Atlanta. Topics include street connectivity, access management, road diets, complete streets, intersection design, access to transit, and the nuts and bolts of creating safe crossings. During the afternoon, participants will apply what they’ve learned to a Livable Center Initiative project focused on transforming a community laced with wide arterial streets into a healthy place to live, work and play.
