NYC Releases New Street Design Manual

New York City's Department of Transportation has officially released the second update to its Street Design Manual, providing specifics on new and forthcoming alterations to the city's streets and street furniture.

"On Friday, during a keynote address at the MAS Summit, NYC's Department of Transportation Commissioner, Janette Sadik-Khan, unveiled the second edition of the city's Street Design Manual -- a living guidebook on how to design New York's streets, based on the best practices learned and enacted by the DOT in recent years," reports Nicole Ferraro.

"For starters, said the Commissioner, the new manual details 'the anatomy of pedestrian safety islands,' [...] Another important addition to the Street Design Manual is a chapter on landscape improvements which factors in the need to design for climate change."
