RedVector is happy to announce the launch of a brand new mobile-ready eLearning series!
Complete Streets are roads and streets designed and operated to provide safe access for all users, including motorists, bicyclists, pedestrians, and transit riders. Complete Streets enable users of all ages, and all physical abilities to safely move along and cross an urban street.
This two-part RedVector series presents an introduction to the fundamental principles of Complete Streets as well as the elements of design such as intersection design guidelines, modern roundabouts, pedestrian treatments, and bicycle lane guidelines. Each element is described in terms of the general principles, design considerations, and recommended practice. A variety of case studies are presented.
By the end of this RedVector series led by Kwabena Ofosu (a Traffic Engineer in the Public Works Department of Palm Bay, Florida), students will be able to describe the numerous factors that must be taken into consideration before the design and implementation of a Complete Streets project; identify how Complete Streets principles can be applied in the planning and development of transportation corridors and networks; and incorporate Complete Streets principles into the routine decision making processes of transportation agencies to provide safety and access for all users.
RedVector is excited about the launch of this mobile-ready series and has several other new courses coming soon. Be sure to follow our blog and check us out on Facebook and Twitter to stay up-to-speed on all the latest eLearning news and course launches!
