For too long, street design in Wisconsin and the rest of the United States has been focused almost solely on automobile movement. CNU and its partners are working to change that with design guidance for streets that do more — fulfilling the function of the world’s highest performing streets as places of social interaction, commerce and human mobility.

Learn more about the CNU-ITE Walkable Urban Thoroughfares manual (created with the Institute of Transportation Engineers) and its urban street networks initiative.

And see these principles put into practice in Wisconsin settings such as the Park East Freeway removal and redevelopment in Milwaukee.
