Overview

Sidewalks are key to a vibrant city life, serving as both social and economic conduits for pedestrian traffic. Safe and well-maintained sidewalks are a basic and necessary investment for cities, and thoughtful sidewalk design can encourage pedestrian traffic by making it more attractive. In today’s world of bike share, car share, freight loading, food trucks, bioswales, pedestrian safety bulb-outs, ride-hail, delivery trucks, and other competing uses, managed curbs incorporating ramps, sensors and other new technologies can help meet ADA requirements and enhance the user experience. 


For many municipalities, a daunting first step is to accurately catalog existing sidewalks, so that transportation planning staff and other local stakeholders can identify gaps and ways to improve pedestrian mobility and safety.  Emerging technologies can help cities dynamically shape and manage curbs by inventorying curbside uses and regulations, building smart partnerships with the private sector, and using new technologies to collect data.  Owning and managing curbside asset data allows cities manage the future of the curb, as the private sector starts to catalog curbside data for their own traffic management. 


Curb data collection areas:

  • Sidewalk zones

  • Sidewalk design

  • Streetside trees and foliage

  • Clear zones

 A MUST-ATTEND EVENT FOR:
