Transportation Research and Education Center Workshop: Integrating Universal Access and Equity into Pedestrian Planning and Design
The Transportation Research and Education Center at Portland State University (TREC) is hosting a two-day academy of transportation-focused workshops, Transportation & Communities 2018, September 13-14, 2018 in Portland, OR. As a part of this academy, Alta will be partnering with TREC to lead a workshop titled, “Integrating Universal Access and Equity into Pedestrian Planning and Design”. This workshop will consider not only how to achieve pedestrian infrastructure, but how to do so using the dual lenses of equity and universal accessibility. Through exercises and storytelling, we will probe at how to integrate pedestrian safety, equity, and accessibility at each of the the phases of project development, from planning through design to construction.
