Complete Streets: Finding Space for Freight

Date: 22.04.20

This webinar is hosted by the Institute for Transportation & Development Policy.

About the Webinar

During this time of enormous growth in on-demand e-commerce, freight travel behavior patterns are distinct and rapidly evolving, generating unique demands for on- and even off-street space. Long term, as cities around the world adopt a “complete streets” approach, freight must be considered. By redesigning streets to allocate street and curbside space for transit and non-motorized travel, these cities are establishing how best to maintain a safe and efficient movement of goods while keeping pedestrians and cyclists safe. During this webinar, Alison Conway will review challenges identified in a survey of cities around the U.S. and discuss international best practices to approach design, regulations, operations, and demand management for freight. Dr. Conway is a previous MOBILIZE speaker and presents on urban freight to preview agenda topics for MOBILIZE 2020.
