Redesign the street to better serve the needs of all users. Protected cycle tracks, curb extensions, transit stops, and widened sidewalks distribute the space more equitably to encourage walking, cycling, and transit use.
Reduce the roadbed to one travel lane in each direction and convert angled parking into parallel parking.
Allow transit vehicles to share the travel lanes with cars and provide island stops for fast, accessible boarding.
Mark protected cycle tracks at conflict zones such as mid-block crossings, curb cuts, and through intersections.
Alternate parking spaces with other services and uses such as refuge islands, sheltered transit stops, cycle-share stations, rain gardens, and wider loading bays for trucks.
Add a raised, mid-block crossing to increase permeability and support a safer pedestrian environment.
Widen sidewalks to allow multiple activities to take place on the street without obstructing the clear path. Plant trees, install street furniture, and create an improved public realm that supports local businesses.
Install ramps and tactile strips to make sidewalks and crossings accessible.
Adopt green infrastructure strategies, including rain gardens and permeable paving, to improve water management and reduce water stagnation in low-lying areas. See: Green Infrastructure.
