AASHTO Workshop for the Development of Bicycle Facilities

The North Central Texas Council of Governments in partnership with the Midwest Section of Texas APA would like to invite you to the AASHTO Workshop! The Workshop will review the 2012 AASHTO Guide for the Development of Bicycle Facilities.  This is a key resource for transportation professionals in designing, building, modernizing, and preserving safe and efficient bicycle facilities.  The training will give local practitioners the knowledge they need to implement innovative design solutions, and new signs, signals and pavement markings for bicyclists.

• New guidance on signs, signals and pavement markings builds on 2009 MUTCD and other AASHTO guidance.
