Caltrans guide to reconstructing intersections for cyclists and pedestrians
The California Department of Transportation (Caltrans) has published a new policy and design guide titled, Complete Intersections: A Guide to Reconstructing Intersections and Interchanges for Bicyclists and Pedestrians. The comprehensive guide is intended to help practitioners (planners and engineer) identify actions and treatments which will improve safety and mobility for bicyclists and pedestrians at intersections and interchanges. The handbook provides tools and techniques to improve bicycle and pedestrian transportation using basic guiding principles for common intersection types. The focus is on intersections and interchanges since that is where multimodal transportation safety and mobility issues can be most challenging.
The guide is part of Caltrans strategy for implementing its Complete Streets policy.
