Commonly, downtown areas of capital cities endure high traffic flow due to the fact that a large part of the inhabitants converge on this sector either to reach their respective workplaces or to carry out various activities; sometimes becoming a problem for mobility during peak hours, requiring the planning of new strategies for the transformation of public space. For the particular case of the present investigation, it is planned to dimension a new space in Calle 15 de Ibagué by means of two (2) different transformation proposals: the first, where the space is organized in such a way that there are mixed and bus-only lanes, segregated bicycle lanes, a series of authorized furnished stops and a change in the geometry of the road in comparison with the current characteristics of the same; and a second proposal, thought more in a pro-carriage design, with mixed lanes without modification in the geometry of the roadway, but with the difference that Pompeian steps have been designed with the conception of complying with the design speed of 20 km/h. The alternatives mentioned above have been designed to evaluate the scope and efficiency they may have in terms of service, comfort, safety, mobility, coherence and inclusion of the different modes of transport (motorized and non-motorized). It should be noted that parameters from the "Global Street Design Guide" have been followed for transformation models, including the recommended dimensions for safe and efficient use of the track section. The above has been designed for the total extension of Calle 15 in the city of Ibagué (from Cra. 1A Sur to Cra. 8) which is a road artery of utmost relevance as all the main avenues of the city converge and, therefore, it is important to take into account all the needs that arise along the stretch of track, always bearing in mind a notable improvement for all relevant actors in the area and visitors making a city more inclusive for the inhabitants of Ibagué and more environmentally friendly.
