Small Town Forum: 2018 Ontario Good Roads Association Conference

STAR Guide

Alta Planning + Design will be leading a training workshop on the FHWA Small Town and Rural Multimodal Networks Guide at the 2018 Ontario Good Roads Association Conference, February 25th, 2018. The guide, which Alta co-authored, presents compelling photographs, visual illustrations, and technical diagrams to communicate design issues, network analyses, and solutions in a small town setting. Paired with the design guidance for each facility type is a representative case study, telling the story of a small community’s success at implementing multimodal facilities in a non-urban context. This training workshop will include material from the Guide in the Canadian context.
