This is a live, repeat presentation of a webinar that was originally offered on 09/13/2021. Attendees of the previously offered presentation, RV-W091321, will not receive CEU for attending the 10/18/2021 presentation. Designing complete streets can encompass a large array of features and cross-discipline elements. Compared to traditional roadway design, the focus of complete street design lies on the context and its community, and not necessarily the automobile. Most of the training and discussion of complete streets focus in urban design, however livability concepts and community goals are also applicable in rural contexts. Through this course, engineers, planners, architects, contractors and practitioners within the A/E/C industry will learn to select the appropriate design controls and guidelines for the development of livable streets within rural context areas in order to support local community needs.Note: This is a live webinar delivered via GoToWebinar. Session instructions will be emailed to you 24-48 hours prior to the webinar and the morning of the webinar.
