Webinar: So You Want to Build a Cross Section

February 18, 2014

A foundational step in the road and street design process is the crafting of cross sections for project roadways. Considerable flexibility is provided in the selection of design values for each individual element, but assembling those elements into a functional and safe cross section can be a daunting task, especially on urban and suburban streets. This webinar reviewed MnDOT criteria for cross-sectional elements, including their origins and flexibilities, and discussed their application in designing cross sections for safety and functionality—especially in light of today’s Complete Streets principles.
