Philadelphia Complete Streets Design Handbook

KAI led an effort for the Philadelphia Mayor’s Office of Transportation and Utilities to develop a Philadelphia Complete Streets Design Handbook, updating the City’s street design policies and standards to incorporate best practices for accommodating pedestrians, bicyclists, transit, and motor vehicles. The project included extensive research and stakeholder outreach to identify existing barriers to developing Complete Streets, local facility needs and preferences, as well as national and international best practices. The resulting Handbook will be an easy-to-use manual that will provide the Streets Departments (and other public agencies), designers, and the development community with a practical guide for implementing Complete Streets solutions that effectively serve all modes.
