  1. Trends in Bicycle Facility Design Choices, Choices, Choices

  2. Health and Safety Moment

  3. Bicycle Safety – Things You SHOULD Do • Obey the rules of the road • Obey traffic controls (signals, stop, yield) • Do not swerve or maneuver unpredictably • Ride on the right side of the road • Always wear a helmet! • Teach your children the bicycle rules of the road

  4. Bicycle Safety – Things You Should NOT Do

  5. Topics • Before You Design • Trends and Issues in Bicycle Facility Design • Other Tips from the Trenches

  6. Before You Design

  7. Engage The Roadway Engineer • Speak their language • Know their limits • Discover their issues and opportunities • Involve them in the original concept

  8. The Engineer’s Bibles • AASHTO Geometric Design of Highways and Streets • AASHTO Guide to Development of Bicycle Facilities • Manual on Uniform Traffic Control Devices (MUTCD), (particularly Part 9) • ITE’s Innovative Bicycle Treatments • FHWA Documents and reports • Local and state design criteria

  9. Educate the Design • Investigate other planned and programmed projects in the area • Identify any key connections or features • Identify any known opportunities • Provide a suggested list of stakeholders

  10. Follow Through • Follow the progress of the concept, environmental document and final design • Give credit where due (particularly agency staff) • Demonstrate support

  11. Trends and Issues in Facility Design

  12. Bicycle Lanes

  13. Shared Roadways

  14. Sharrows • called “Shared Lane Marking” in MUTCD Clifton Road Sharrow, from BikeEmory.edu

  15. Bicycle Boxes (Not included in 2009 MUTCD)

  16. Shared Use Paths

  17. Shared Use Paths

  18. Shared Use Paths

  19. Shared Bus/Bike Lane

  20. Bicycle Parking and Storage Source: New York City Bicycle Survey, 998 responses

  21. Bicycle Parking and Storage • Curbside bicycle parking • Workplace bicycle storage • Required parking/storage for new development • Parking reductions

  22. Complete Streets • Complete streets are designed and operated to enable safe access for all users. • Consistent with direction of USDOT policy • See National Complete Streets Coalition (www.completestreets.org)

  23. Other Tips from the Trenches

  24. (These tips are free) • Roadway (or right-of-way) ownership dictates control of design • Funding mechanisms sometimes limit or dictate design
