Introduction to FHWA's New Small Town and Rural Street Design Guide

This webinar will introduce attendees to the newly released Small Town and Rural Design Guide (STAR Guide), a Federal Highway Administration publication.  

The STAR Guide is a free resource and the first of its kind to focus exclusively on rural street design and the unique active transportation challenges and opportunities outside of urban areas. It is structured as a menu of facility options to create multimodal networks that encourage walking and biking. 

Educational Objectives

This webinar will review the Guide as well as an interactive website that can serve as a quick reference tool.  The Guide is especially helpful during conceptual design and is one of a few transportation planning resources directed specifically at small towns and rural communities.
