APWA Bike Corridor Design Presentation

Description :

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.

Cost is $15, payable by credit online or cash at the door.  LUNCH WILL BE INCLUDED.  Taco bar, drinks, & dessert.  Lunch begins at 11:30, with the presentation to follow from 12:00 - 1:00.
