Take a fresh look at guides and guidance for bicycle and pedestrian professionals. Two consecutive webinars invite you to think more broadly about the guidance documents you use and explore recent developments in how to apply that guidance.
In this session, APBP asks which resources belong in the practitioner’s library and considers how to navigate effectively among different sources of information. MassDOT’s new Separated Bike Lane Planning & Design Guide frames a discussion about design flexibility, engineering judgment, and the process of integrating resources. The webinar includes a preview of forthcoming FHWA guidance and FHWA’s new Design Resource Index. After this training, attendees can:
1. Identify new guides for bicycle and pedestrian planning, design and engineering.
2. Cite FHWA guidance for bicycle and pedestrian planning, design and engineering.
3. Include health guidance in planning for active transportation. (handout)
4. Articulate why it is important to know about and apply new design guidance in transportation planning.
5. Explain how to develop local capacity for design innovation in transportation planning.
On January 20, the discussion segues to practical tips in applying design flexibility: how agencies can select among treatments and designs for specific conditions.
