April 10, 2018 NACITE Luncheon
Presented by Jack Niepsuj and Anika Muhammad
NACITE and APPI welcome Anika Muhammad and Jack Niepsuj from the City of Edmonton to present the City’s new Complete Streets Design and Construction Standards (CSDCS).
The CSDCS combines the former Roadway Design and Construction Standards, and Complete Streets Guidelines, into a single design reference document that aligns with the Transportation Association of Canada’s 2017 Geometric Design Guide. The new CSDCS document introduces additional guidance and flexibility into the City’s design standards to facilitate a context-sensitive approach to designing transportation infrastructure. This presentation will highlight major changes to our design standards, including pedestrian realm, cycling infrastructure, and lane widths.
