Streets make up more than 80 percent of public space in cities and towns. From one edge of the right-of-way to the other, planners, engineers, and community groups are coming together to decide how they want to allocate this precious resource.

NCHRP Research Report 1036: Roadway Cross-Section Reallocation: A Guide, from TRB's National Cooperative Highway Research Program, describes how street design decisions impact communities and clarifies how different street elements influence not just transportation outcomes, but livability, economic and environmental health, equity, and many other concerns.

Supplemental to the report are NCHRP Web-Only Document 342: Roadway Cross-Section Reallocation: Conduct of Research Report and two Decision-Making Spreadsheet Tools, one on Reconstruction and another on Repaving.
