Street Types

Street types are a planning and design tool to identify preferred or required elements that support the adjacent land use and enhance the pedestrian environment. Street types are not the same as street classifications, but provide a more specific definition of the design elements that support the streets function and its adjacent land use. The Right-of-Way Improvements Manual provides design criteria for each Street Type to inform designers about the kinds of elements that need to be included in the right-of-way.

Some elements that are described include pedestrian-scaled lighting, street trees and landscaping, crossing islands, street furniture, and sidewalk width.
