OVERSTREET: AN URBAN STREET DEVELOPMENT SYSTEM

The concept underlying OVERSTREET provides a solution, valid for large-scale development, and redevelopment, to three problems, with which I, like many others, have been wrestling for years; separation of vehicular and pedestrian movements, protection of premises fronting on streets from the noise and air pollution produced by motor vehicles, and a rational and economic method for the location of utilities. The proposal, by eliminating the present wasteful use of land for streets, makes it possible to possible to provide generous open spaces for recreation, without increasing the total amount of land required for a given development. /RTAC/
