Sept. 18, 2012: On-Road Facilities Part 2: Shared Lanes, Paved Shoulders, Bicycle Boulevards and Traffic Signals
This webinar will discuss the design of other (non-bike lane) on road bicycle facilities, including shared lanes (unmarked and marked), paved shoulders and bicycle boulevards. Considerations for accommodating bicycles at traffic signals, including signal detection and timing, will also be discussed. The fundamentals of bicycle guide signs (wayfinding) will be discussed. Bicycle operations and safety, including the design vehicle, traffic principles for bicycles, and a review of research on bicycle crashes will be referenced, as appropriate, throughout the module.
