FHWA “Talking Frieght” Webinar

RSG Senior Director, Peter Plumeau, will present “Complete Streets and Goods Movement: Options and Considerations” at an FHWA “Talking Freight” webinar on May 21st. Peter's talk will examine how complete streets approaches and projects have addressed goods movement needs and whether there are opportunities for more fully integrating these needs into complete streets.

The concept of “complete streets” is becoming an important part of planning and design in urban and community planning across the country. Projects to design and re-engineer our streets to accommodate all users in a more safe and equitable manner have been pursued in large and small cities, with tangible benefits for pedestrians, bicyclists, transit users, and community quality of life in many locations. However, it is uncommon to find goods movement mobility highlighted as a consideration in complete streets planning and implementation.
