Upcoming APBP webinar: “Road Diets”
The Association of Bicycle and Pedestrian Professionals (APBP) will host a webinar on “road diets” on August 18, 2010 from 2:00 to 3:00 p.m. CDT. A road diet narrows or eliminates travel lanes on a roadway in order to make more room for pedestrians and bicyclists, manage speed, and/or improve overall traffic flow. Increasingly, cities and Transportation agencies around the country are implementing road diets to improve road conditions for all users and to enhance the opportunity for social and economic exchange in urban commercial and mixed use areas. Presenters include Chicago’s own Mark de la Vergne, of Sam Schwartz Engineering.
The cost is $50 per site for APBP members and $75 per site for non-APBP members. Register online. For more information, contact Debra Goeks (262-228-7025 or firstname.lastname@example.org).
