Reevaluating Transportation Priorities
At the start of the Street Design Project, the City of Chenai took bold measures to reevaluate who uses the streets and how these usage figures should manifest themselves in street design features. This reevaluation suggested a dramatic change was needed. Instead of placing cars at the top of the pecking order, walking and non motorized vehicles were placed first. The redesign of the streets carries out this shift in the form of new safety measures, travel zones, and street distribution.
