Roadways and Public Mobility
Roadways present the opportunity to serve multiple modes of transportation: pedestrians, bicycles, vans, buses, streetcars and light rail. Well planned roadways add visual character to a community as well as protect the health, safety and welfare of residents, workers, visitors and the surrounding natural environment that attracts them. Making roadway changes that create safer streets and reduce idling pollution produced by vehicles burning fossil fuels can decrease traffic crashes, reduce community health issues, reduce financial costs on the community, and save lives.
