Layered Networks


This approach designates modal emphasis by street to create a complete streets network. Layered networks recognize that while all traveler types need to be accommodated within a community; no single street can accommodate all transportation users at all times. The layered network concept envisions streets as systems, each street type designed to create a high quality experience for its intended users. A layered network approach can also use context sensitive land use and mode overlays to enhance additional transportation modes.
