When we talk about a particular area, are we looking to save time or spend time in that area? In other words, are we just passing through, like on I-270, or are we spending time, like we would in North Bethesda 1 or Pike & Rose? Too often, traffic engineers think only about saving time in the quest to get from Point A to Point B. They fail to consider the many benefits of encouraging and allowing people to comfortably live, work, and play in a particular area. This has many implications. For example, speed. If you’re trying to create a Place, you need slower speeds. Slower speeds make people safer, so while cars are accommodated (they can still drive, albeit at 25 mph instead of 40 mph) they are not prioritized. People hanging out, walking, riding bikes, taking transit — that is the priority when you’re creating a Place. Read more about creating Place in the Pike District.
