Phase 2: Street Classifications

Early in the planning process, the project team recognized that before identifying transportation needs and projects, we had to clarify the roles that different streets are meant to play in the NW street grid. Street classifications are the way that plans show which streets should prioritize different modes of travel like walking, biking, transit, or driving. The Bikeway, Traffic, and Transit classifications in NW were out of date and in need of refreshing, so NW in Motion conducted an extensive analysis and has recommended changes to better meet spacing guidelines for these modes and show why certain streets are more appropriate for bikes while others might be better for people driving or riding transit.
