How can our community benefit from intersection re-design?
This year’s annual “Street Talk” presentation featured Nick Falbo, Senior Transportation Planner, Portland Bureau of Transportation. Watch Nick’s presentation HERE.
Nick Falbo specializes in the design of urban transportation networks, spaces for people, and multimodal complete streets. He contributed to and illustrated the Urban Bikeway Design guide for the National Association for City Transportation Officials. This guide has become the standard for integrating bikeways into the fabric of American cities.
Nick continues to shape the field, popularizing the Protected Intersection for bicyclists design concept, and serving as guest lecturer at the Institute of Bicycle and Pedestrian Innovation at Portland State University. Putting the City of Portland’s strong policies into action on the ground, Nick helps lead Portland to a future as a prosperous, healthy and equitable city.
His presentation on November 16, 2021, focused on the redesign of intersections to make them safer for everyone and, at the same time, improve community livability.
This event was co-sponsored by the Corvallis Sustainability Coalition Transportation Action Team and City of Corvallis Active Transportation Program.
