Citywide Neighborhood Electric Vehicle Plan
Client: City of Huntington Beach, Southern California Association of Governments
Team: Gensler (Prime), DCR Design, Civic Projects
DCR Design recently completed work assisting with the design of a neighborhood electric vehicle (NEV) strategic plan for Huntington Beach, California. DCR partners led data analysis to identify existing and proposed route networks, including safe crossings and turns for NEVs.
The project team anticipates NEVs sharing lanes with bicycles and other rolling modes, as well as linking key origins and destinations through a “backbone” strategy that will use designated lanes and a signage program to define a safe, legible and branded route for NEVs.
