Webinar Description:


The primary goals of this webinar are to familiarize transportation engineers/planners with the newest innovations in the bicycle facility design practice. The webinar will discuss recent developments in available design guidance and considerations when designing these facilities. Recent advances in bicycle facility design guidance have led to increased demand from government agencies and the public to implement many of these innovative treatments. As more of these facilities are being implemented, users are recognizing the host of safety benefits and greater comfort level generated from the increased separation from automobile traffic and enhanced intersection treatments. Agencies throughout the country are using the design guidance recently issued within the National Association of City Transportation Officials Urban Bikeway Design Manual, in association with the guidance set forth in the established U.S. manuals such as the AASHTO Guide for the Development of Bicycle Facilities and MUTCD, to implement these facilities. This webinar is co-sponsored by ASCE's Transportation and Development Institute and ASCE Continuing Education.
