COST : FREE
FOR : Bay Area traffic engineers and planners, and others interested in Road Diets.
Overview : "Road diet" projects often entail the conversion of four-lane undivided roads into three lanes (two through lanes plus a center turn lane). The fourth lane may be used for bicycle lanes, sidewalks, or on-street parking. This seminar will look at examples of road diets; effect on road capacity; use of reallocated right-of-way; public outreach and perceptions; impacts and benefits. Also, lessons learned in San Leandro, Oakland, and Sunnyvale.
