Even as protected bike lanes expanded by more than 6X across North America since 2011, intersections continue to be where otherwise comfortable bike networks often break down. In 2017, 43% of bicyclist fatalities occurred at crossings. On many streets, large turn radii and wide lanes encourage drivers to make sweeping, fast turns. These design decisions increase exposure and risk for people walking and biking, reduce the safety and comfort of the bike network, and discourage cycling.
In this webinar, hear how staff in Memphis and New York City have designed innovative intersections that make their streets safer and more welcoming for bicyclists of all ages and abilities and learn more about Don’t Give Up at the Intersection, NACTO’s guidance for designing intersections that increase road safety, improve legibility for traffic operations, and close gaps in bike networks caused by uncontrolled crossings.
