The day after the Illinois Bike Summit, professional engineers and planners will be the primary intended audience for a training on NACTO’s Urban Bikeway Design Guide and related suburban/rural content. The highly-acclaimed class will be taught by T.Y. Lin International’s Nate Roseberry, with 6 continuing education credit hours available for engineers and planners.
Participants will learn state-of-the-practices for on-street bikeways, based on lessons learned from the world’s best bicycling cities. The design charrette format incorporates classroom and field activities, and provides a forum for dialogue and engagement between engineers, planners, and other professionals.
