The chart below provides a summary of the types of streets presented in chapter 10: Streets; their overall dimensions, some basic information on space allocation among users, and the case studies explored. They are not a mandated set of dimensions, but rather examples of the various ways existing streets can be transformed.
Each street illustrates multiple examples that vary in context, overall size, geometric alignment, and in certain cases, transit type. The transformations shown are based on proven strategies and real contexts, which illustrate an integrated approach to street design.
For the purpose of clear communication, streets are shown as orthogonally aligned, with the understanding that adjustments should be made to adapt to specific local conditions.
Chapter 6: Designing for People will help provide alternative alignments and configurations for each typology and can clarify recommended dimensions.
