Gresham, Smith and Partners announces that Senior Vice President Marshall Elizer, Jr., P.E., PTOE, will give a lunchtime presentation titled “Complete Streets Design – State of the Practice” at the May meeting of the Florida Engineering Society’s (FES) Tampa chapter. Elizer will provide an overview of the Complete Streets topic and offer guidance on planning, designing and implementing these multi-modal roadways, which enable safe use by pedestrians, bicyclists, motorists and transit riders.
 
“It’s an honor to discuss Complete Streets with the Florida Engineering Society,” said Elizer. “Through workshops like these, we’re helping professionals better understand how Complete Streets can enhance quality of life and safety, how to use technical tools and resources to tailor a concept for a specific community, and how to work with stakeholders to benefit the greatest number of people. I’m confident that Complete Streets will only continue to gain popularity and we look forward to future opportunities to educate Floridians on best practices.”
 
Elizer also recently led a workshop for the Florida Department of Transportation (FDOT) District One titled “Advanced Complete Streets Design for Professionals.” The workshop included sessions focused on: design guidance, flexibility and liability; geometric design controls; traveled way and roadside. Attendees included engineers, planners, transportation managers and other consultants. Additionally, GS&P Senior Transportation Planner Michael Dorweiler, AICP, worked with Elizer to facilitate Complete Streets design charrettes for FDOT District One on corridor projects in the communities of Fort Myers and Lakeland.
 
GS&P Transportation leaders have authored numerous articles and blog posts on Complete Streets for publications such as Public Works magazine and the ITE Journal and for organizations like Smart Growth America. The firm is a member of the National Complete Streets Coalition and Elizer is a frequent speaker on Complete Streets at conferences and meetings across the country. GS&P’s Complete Streets project portfolio includes the 28th/31st Avenue Connector in Nashville, Tenn., the Knoxville Regional Complete Streets Study in Knoxville, Tenn., and the Louisville Metro Streetscape Design Manual in Louisville, Ky.

“Through workshops like these, we’re helping professionals better understand how Complete Streets can enhance quality of life and safety, how to use technical tools and resources to tailor a concept for a specific community, and how to work with stakeholders to benefit the greatest number of people.”
