This seminar is to share experiences and provide a high-level education of the issues related to bicycle facility designs. The presenters will focus on on-street bicycle facilities design, transitions between on-street and off-street facilities, and off-street shared-use path designs. They’ll explore best practices and discuss case studies to demonstrate successes and failures.
On-street bike facilities will include an overview of terminology, applications, and standards, followed by a discussion of: · Basics of On-Road Facilities (What it is, who is the user, Pros/Cons) · Terminology and Standard Design Practices · Evaluating and Balancing the Impacts (Parking, Capacity, Safety) · Case Histories (New Construction and Retrofit)
During the off-street facilities discussion, design issues covered will include guidelines such as AASHTO and ADA, intersections, wayfinding, drainage, pavement types, sidepath law, recreational facility liability, and access management.
