Placemaking Through Traffic Engineering: Creative Solutions in Streetscape Design - 1.5 PDH (LA CES/HSW)

Credits: None available.

Members: $50.00
Associates: $40.00
Students: $0.00
Standard: $60.00


Landscape architects who understand traffic engineering principles and innovations can apply these tools to make streets into better places. The presenters will discuss technical roadway-design concepts and cutting-edge approaches, and present case-studies in which innovative solutions emerged from a deep knowledge of the relationship between traffic engineering and placemaking.

Learning Objectives: 

  • Understand basic street design/traffic engineering principles and standards such as lane widths, turn-lanes, bus-stop configurations, bike lane classes, and signalization concepts.
  • Understand traffic data types describing traffic volumes and roadway performance, such as average daily traffic, peak volumes, level of service, and how these are measured.
  • Describe innovations in multi-modal facilities including "next-generation bikeways" and bus facilities, and potential future concerns such as accommodating ride-share.
  • Describe innovations in community engagement, including temporary prototyping and "tactical urbanism."
