This webinar will highlight challenges faced by complete street projects across Canada, and identify lessons learned by three practitioners.

Argyle & Grafton Shared Streetscape Project
Hanita Koblents (Halifax Regional Municipality) will present this award-winning project, which transformed the heart of Halifax’s entertainment district into a “shared streetscape” with a curbless cross-section, unit pavers across the right-of-way, special lighting, and other pedestrian priority features. This presentation will explore design, construction and operational challenges related to non-standard roadway elements and construction impact mitigation.

Main Street Renewal: Retrofitting a Complete Street
Ronald Clarke (Parsons) will discuss the planning, design and reconstruction of an arterial road through the Old Ottawa East community—a transformative investment that improved multimodal mobility, the streetscape and public realm. It features one of the first raised cycle track designs in Canada, created by reducing four vehicle travel lanes to a two-plus-one arrangement. The project successfully tackled challenges around related to right-of-way limitations, vehicle capacity reductions, cycle track designs at conflict zones, accessibility, and bus stop waiting areas.

The Art of the Trade-Off
Ryan Martinson (Stantec) will address approaches to making trade-offs when designing complete streets, drawing on his own experience of integrating technical and stakeholder inputs. He will address key considerations including the role of the network, the overall transportation system, project context, and various street functions.
