ABQ Streets Project: Creating Alternative Residential Street Designs

This research aims to identify residential street designs that could be used to retrofit existing residential streets in Albuquerque, New Mexico. The objectives are to find more cost-effective designs that improve street function and community well-being while reducing negative environmental impacts. The research will identify alternatives and estimate their benefits through comprehensive review of the street design literature applicable to the residential context. Recently collected travel behavior and stated preference data and physical surveying of local streets will be used to identify feasible alternatives for a more detailed cost benefit analysis. The results will be shared with community members and city officials. The results will also contribute to an ongoing longitudinal study that will observe how changing street designs affect travel behavior, community well-being and the environment.
