This training will provide an in-depth technical review of various Complete Streets infrastructure design elements. Attendees will learn how to select and design improvements based on multi-modal considerations and applicable design guidance. Application of these elements will be demonstrated during a Complete Streets design exercise that will include a site visit (weather permitting) to a local street or intersection that is in need of a Complete Streets makeover. Attendees will return to the classroom and develop a Complete Streets design solution. A brief overview of MassDOT’s Complete Streets fundamentals and Funding Program requirements covered in Complete Streets 101.
