Maintaining Bicycle and Pedestrian Connectivity in Work Zones
Sarah Fine, City of Oakland
Mike Zipf, City of Vancouver
Construction projects are a fact of life for cities, but pedestrian and bicycle accommodation has not always been at the forefront of our concerns, nor guidance. Many cities have taken the lead in augmenting MUTCD guidance and require greater--but still feasible--accommodation. The April webinar will take a look at Oakland's process for revising temporary traffic control as well as the City of Vancouver's practices for walking and cycling. We'll also examine the emerging policy for more stringent requirements along AAA cycling routes in Vancouver. Real world examples of pedestrian and bike provisions will be presented, as well as some more complicated situations where a 'by the book' approach would not suffice.
Continuing Education Credits: APBP will provide an attendance certificate to those who document their professional development hours; each 60-minute webinar provides one hour of training (1.0 CEU). APBP applies to the AICP for Certification Maintenance credit for each webinar.
All webinars will be recorded for later viewing. The fee to purchase a site license is $50 for APBP members, $85 for non-APBP members. Each site license includes one phone connection (toll charges apply, or use VoIP), one Internet connection, one set of handouts for unlimited attendees in the same location, and access to the recording. (You may be required to download free software from Citrix GoToMeeting in order to participate in the webinar.) APBP accepts Visa, MasterCard or AMEX.
