The Association for Bicycle and Pedestrian Professionals (APBP) will be offering a webinar entitled “Cycle Tracks: Concept and Design Practices.” The webinar will take place Wednesday, February 17, 2:00 to 3:30 p.m. CST. See the APBP website or contact Debra Goeks (email@example.com) for more information.
The webinar will cover general design principles and practices, drawing from European experience. Examples from Cambridge, Mass., Montreal, New York City, and Portland, Ore., will be cited throughout.
Specifically, this webinar will cover:
• Definition of a cycle track
• Examples of means of separation from traffic and from pedestrians
• Space needs for one-way and two-way cycle tracks
• Intersection treatments
• Discussion of "false sense of security" studies
• What AASHTO says about cycle tracks, and other sources of design guidance
• North American cities' experience with design, operations and safety
APBP has applied for one CM credit from the AICP for this webinar. A certificate of attendance for those wanting to claim Professional Development Hours will be available.
