PROJECT APPLICATION CASE STUDIES This chapter presents case studies to illustrate how the materials palette can be applied. Case studies are grouped by project type, presenting examples of applications for pedestrian crossings, bikeways, intersections, and other public spaces, like parks, plazas, and alleys. Each project type sub-section features case studies arranged by time interval providing examples of applications for: • Demonstration projects (1 week - 1 month) • Pilot projects (1 month - 1 year) • Interim design projects (1 year - 5 years) For more detailed definitions of each of these project phase time intervals, see page 14. For more case studies and project types, visit our blog at: tacticalurbanismguide.com. Finally, all Design Considerations and the Typical Dimensions Cheat Sheets included in this chapter are sourced from NACTO’s suite of design manuals; ITE’s Walkable Urban Thoroughfares Manual; The Manual for Uniform Traffic Control (MUTCD); FHWA’ Separated Bike Lane Planning and Design Guide, and FHWA’s Roundabouts: An informational Guide. Please consult these documents for more details.
