Interesting post in Atlantic Cities about the STROAD (Street/Road):
The STROAD design — a street/road hybrid — is the futon of transportation alternatives. Where a futon is a piece of furniture that serves both as an uncomfortable couch and an uncomfortable bed, a STROAD moves cars at speeds too slow to get around efficiently but too fast to support productive private sector investment. The result is an expensive highway and a declining tax base.
According to the article the word was coined by Chuck Marohn. The video is definitely worth the watch. Saskatoon… I’m looking at 8th Street, 22nd Street, and Idylwyld Drive
as the worst culprits.
