Dan Burden explores the potential for streets to contribute to livability in our communities through quality design rather than bare-bones engineering. Dan shares examples of dead spaces turned into vibrant community centers through streetscape projects.

With 40 years of experience, Dan Burden is a national authority on walkability, street corridor & intersection design, traffic flow, road diets, and other planning elements that affect America’s streets. He has photographed and examined walking, bicycling, placemaking, and town center conditions in over 2,500 cities in the U.S. and abroad.
