Urban Bikeway Design Guide Workshop: PWPB 2014

Join NACTO and the Green Lane Project for a full-day training on the Urban Bikeway Design Guide, a state-of-the-practice manual for designing bicycle facilities in urban areas. The Bike Guide provides an in-depth, highly communicative toolkit for city transportation officials to design bikeways that accommodate cyclists of all ages and abilities. The training will focus on the planning and design of protected bike lanes, including a technical discussion on designing intersections, bicycle signals, and other emerging design treatments being used in cities around the nation. Participants will have an opportunity to learn from experts who worked on the guidelines and have had on-the-ground experience implementing real projects. Critical themes for the training include safe intersection design for bicyclists, high quality protected and buffered bike lanes, and creating bicycle boulevards using targeted speed and volume management measures. At the end of the day, NACTO will preview some upcoming developments to the Guidelines, including new treatments, methods of analysis, and other trends in the field today.
