and APBP partnered to produce a three-part
webinar series that drills down into NACTO's Urban Bikeway Design Guide.
The series provides training on key focus areas within the NACTO Guide
and is geared towards
practitioners working on the ground to make cities safer places to
bicycle. Sessions focus on intersection treatments, contextual guidance
and raised cycle tracks, with examples drawn from NACTO cities.
Municipal and MPO or RPC staff, consultants, and others working on urban
transportation planning and engineering, as well as elected officials
and staff of bicycle advocacy organizations.
Sessions in the series cover these topics:
Design at Intersections
Recorded May 29, 2013
effective intersection design requires visibility and predictability among all
street users. In unpredictable urban environments, achieving these goals can be
difficult. Bikeway Design at Intersections provides an overview of the
intersection treatments in the NACTO guide, including bike boxes, bicycle
signals and mixing zones, and analyzes how to resolve and mitigate several complex
intersection design problems that commonly arise, with particular attention to cyclist turning movements.

Design in Context: Determining the Right Facility for the Right Street
Recorded June 5, 2013
design options have multiplied and evolved, the decision-making process
practitioners has become increasingly complex. What kinds
of streets are best suited to cycle tracks? When should an engineer use a
buffered bike lane rather than a conventional bike lane? Are shared lane
appropriate for busy streets or only on local roads? This session will
the decision-making process that different cities go through when
answering such questions, looking beyond speed and ADT to consider
elements as varied as context,
parking, transit routes and street width.

Generation Bikeway Design: Raised Cycle Tracks
Recorded June 26, 2013
many cities have relied primarily on signs and markings to radically transform
their streets, a growing number of bikeways around the country have been
improved and made permanent using higher cost materials, curb relocation and
complex engineering. This session will look at two facilities that embody
long term solutions for city streets. How can cities effectively move
the curb without creating drainage problems? What "green” infrastructure
solutions can be incorporated into these new bikeways? What are the highest and
lowest cost alternatives to these designs?
