Community Edge to Community Street

A central drainage median and frontage roads create 
a wide right of way conducive to fast speeds but dangerous 

to crossing pedestrians. Redesigning the roadway 
into a 35-mile-per-hour zone eliminates the central 
drainage median and frontage roads.
 Instead, this extra land can be used to create a parkway 
This brings the new housing development visually closer
 to existing downtown neighborhoods. 
The narrower road width also encouragesdrivers to slow 
down, making pedestrian crossings safer and easier
