Bikeway Design Principles, Planning, and Best Practices

OnDemand Webinar (90 minutes)

Make your vision a reality and understand the different bikeway types and treatments that are appropriate for a given location.A city or town whose residents, workers, kids, teens and retirees can choose to bicycle easily, enjoyably and confidently to their everyday destinations has a strong foundation for health, fitness, reduced school and neighborhood traffic, and overall quality of life. But how can transportation planners, traffic engineers, advisory committee members, planning commissioners, and elected officials who do not currently use a bicycle for utility transportation develop an understanding of the economic and community benefits of bicycle accommodations ('bikeways'), the spectrum of bikeway types, and which types are appropriate for various combinations of motor traffic speed, volume, and urban character? This topic will help individuals serving in all of those roles understand how to enhance their streets and intersections so bicycling becomes a comfortable choice for a much broader range abilities, ages and trips. You will learn which bikeway types and treatments are appropriate on a given street, and the elements of a Bicycle Master Plan or Active Transportation Plan that can help to make your vision a reality. It is an excellent introduction to the field for planning and design staff and management.
