GOALS
April 25, 2014 ARGYLE STREETSCAPE
Pedestrian Access Advisory Committee Meeting
DESIGN ELEMENTS
Speeds less than 15 mph
Blurred lines between pedestrian and vehicular spaces
Removal of barrier curbs
BENEFITS
Kensington High Street in London showed a 43%
decrease in casualties/injuries over a two year
period after converted to a Shared Street
Increased safety through individual responsibility
Expansion of Public Urban Space
Increased pedestrian and bicycle trafc
Drivers are fourteen times more likely to give-way to
pedestrians
Promotes economic development
Flexible for street fairs, markets, parades
Promotes safe and comfortable outdoor cafe space
WHAT IS A SHARED STREET?
Shared Space is more a way of thinking than it is a design concept. It is
most readily recognized as a street space where all trafc control devices such
as signals and stop signs, all markings such as crosswalks, and all signing have
been removed. Curbing is removed to blur the lines between sidewalks and
motorized travel way. The philosophy is that absence of all of those features
forces all users of the space from pedestrians to drivers to negotiate
passage through the space via eye contact and person to person negotiation.

ADA GUIDELINES / RESEARCH
Americans with Disabilities Act Accessibility Guidelines for
Buildings and Facilities (ADAAG)
Initial ADAAG requirement for detectable warnings at
hazardous vehicle areas, but with no denition of hazardous
vehicular area
In 2004, ADAAG was updated to remove references to
hazardous vehicle areas and specic requirements for placements
of detectable warnings (excluding transit platform boarding
edges)
Public Rights-ofway Accessibility Guidelines (PROWAG)
2005 PROWAG draft updated requirements for dectable warnings:
...where curb ramps, blended transitions, or landings
provide a ush pedestrian connection to the street. Sidewalk
crossings of residential driveways should not generally be
provided with detectable warnings, since the pedestrian
right-of-way continues across most driveway aprons and
overuse of detectable warning surfaces should be avoided in
the interests of message clarity. However, where commercial
driveways are provided with trafc control devices or
otherwise are permitted to operate like public streets,
detectable warnings should be provided at the junction
between the pedestrian route and the street.
PROWAG has not been adobted by the Department of Justice yet.
Coordinated with MOPD who:
Reviewed the proposed Public Right of Way Guidelines
to determine if there is anything directly applicable to shared
streets that is being proposed.
Reviewed DOJ and Access Board websites for guidance
on shared street issues
Conducted legal research to determine if any applicable
caselaw exists regarding shared streets
Reviewed Illinois Accessibility Code, 2010 ADA
Standards and Chicago Building Code to determine whether
existing regulations require truncated domes to indicate shared
street boundaries
Conducted internet research to determine how other
jurisdictions (including other countries) use materials to
provide indication of shared street boundaries for people with
disabilities including people who are blind or have visual
impairments.
Talked by telephone with MOPD representatives from
Boston and San Francisco regarding their experiences with
shared streets to determine how they analyzed the problem.
Reviewed reports from Seattle, San Francisco and other
jurisdictions to determine shared street designs.

ADA GUIDELINES / RESEARCH
What are other cities doing?
San Francisco - Shared Public Ways
Visual/tactile cues should be provided to identify the
presence of a shared public way as distinct from a traditional
street, and to delineate between pedestrian-only and shared
zones. Visual/tactile cues should be provided at all edges
between pedestrian-only and shared zones, including from the
crossing sidewalk. Visual/tactile cues should not impair the
potential use of the entire right-of-way by all users.
Where a shared public way leads to curbs, crosswalks and
standard streets, curb ramps with detectable warnings must
be provided.
Jefferson Street - The Mayors Ofce of Disabilities
has been working with Lighthouse for the Blind and other
disabilities advocacy groups to come up with solutions for
visually impaired street users that meet ADA guidelines and
also account for streets with less rigid divisions between
elements. Central delineators, or slightly raised and beveled
street pavers, [...] dene the boundary between pedestrian
safe zones on the street and sections where cars will drive.
Boston, Massachusetts - Shared Streets
Included in the Boston Complete Streets Guidelines.
No specic guidelines for ADA or visual/tactile cues.
Cambridge, Massachusetts
Includes a 2 stretch truncated domes at the entrances to the
shared streets.
Auckland, New Zealand
Responded to disability groups concerns by ensuring that
a strip of accessible zone would be retained in the design.
This strip is made off limits to vehicles by strategically placed
street furniture, while the building edge and paving strips
provide guidance to vision-impaired people.

Overview
A Shared Street is a street with a single grade or surface that
is shared by people using all modes of travel at slow speeds.
Curbs are removed, and the sidewalk is blended with the
roadway. Speeds are slow enough to allow for pedestrians to
intermingle with bicycles, motor vehicles, and transit. Shared
Streets can support a variety of land uses, including com-
mercial and retail activity, entertainment venues, restaurants,
ofces, and residences. They are unique spaces where
people can slow down to enjoy the public realm, and create
an environment where everyone must pay attention due to the
organic movement of people.
When designing Shared Streets, special consideration must
be given to accommodating pedestrians with disabilities.
Because Shared Streets are at one grade, materials can vary
and street furnishings such as bollards, planters, street lights,
and benches can be strategically placed to dene edges.
These streets are often surfaced with pavers or other types of
decorative surface treatments.
Overall, the primary design consideration for Shared Streets
is maintaining slow vehicular speeds (no more than 15 mph)
in order to minimize the potential for conicts with pedestri-
ans. Entrances to Shared Streets are usually raised and often
narrowed to one lane in order to force drivers to slow before
entering. Chicanes can be used to help regulate vehicular
speeds along the length of the street, and can be formed using
trees, benches, plantings, play areas, and parking areas that
are laid out in an alternating pattern to deect and slow trafc.
If desired, Shared Streets may restrict access to personal ve-
hicles but permit use by taxis, commercial vehicles, and buses.
They may also incorporate Neighborway treatments. For more
information about Neighborways, see Chapter 3, Roadways,
Design Features that Reduce Operating Speeds.
