Our transportation corridors connect and contain a multitude of community members with varying needs as well as the infrastructure and systems they depend on to meet those needs. With the increasingly pressing urgency to fortify South Florida’s climate resilience, our transportation corridors are advantageously poised as community-wide, interconnected public spaces that can integrate improvements designed with mindfulness towards climate resilience.

In this session, learn from leading voices in climate resilience planning about bold initiatives, design strategies, and other mechanisms that can effectively prepare the various systems dependent on our community’s transportation corridors for climate change through the implementation of Complete Streets principles, policies, and strategies.

Flexible designs can adapt streets to include everyone and their evolving needs. By building dynamic transportation systems, streets can serve as agile spaces and resources that accommodate anticipated and unanticipated shifts in the needs of populations, businesses, and the environment. This session will provide attendees with an overview of some of the latest tools in adapting streets including Slow Streets. These tools aim to adapt the existing conditions of streets into slower, more pedestrian and bicycle friendly spaces. This includes flex streets and pedestrian zones that allow for a layering of various uses in the same public spaces.
