ITE NCS March Luncheon: Chapman Mills Drive Transit Priority and Active Transportation Corridor
March 3 @ 11:30 am - 1:30 pm$20 – $40
The National Capital Section (NCS) is kicking the year off with a very special first luncheon. On March 3, 2020, the NCS will award Professor Ata Khan, with a lifetime achievement award. Throughout his distinguished career, Professor Khan has spent over 50 years educating transportation professionals in Ottawa and contributing to the transportation profession in Canada and internationally.
Following the award presentation, Kornel Mucsi from the City of Ottawa will present on The Pro-Active Implementation of Chapman Mills Drive Transit Priority and Active Transportation Corridor.
We hope to see you there!
Main Presentation Overview:
The presentation focuses on the advantages and challenges of the early introduction of higher order transit and low-stress cycling facilities in a newly built medium-density, mixed-use neighbourhood. The presentation will describe the traditional approaches of developing higher order transit corridors and offer an alternative evolution path which is more likely to lead to a transit- and active transportation-supportive suburban neighbourhood. Since parts of this corridor have been already implemented, the presentation will point out some of the lessons learned so far.
The Chapman Mills Transit Priority and Active Transportation Corridor project was a recipient of the 2019 Transportation Association of Canada (TAC) Sustainable Urban Transportation Award.
