Protected Bike Lanes in North America and the European Union: New FHWA Guide, Emerging Research and Research Gaps, and Lessons Learned

Sunday 1:30 PM- 5:00 PM
Sign in to reveal location
Gordon Lovegrove, University of British Columbia, presiding
Sponsored by:
Standing Committee on Bicycle Transportation (ANF20)
Standing Committee on Transportation and Land Development (ADD30)
Standing Committee on Traffic Signal Systems (AHB25)
Standing Committee on Transportation Issues in Major Cities (ABE30)

Current research and practice for protected bike lanes in urban and rural areas examine design, usage-level forecasts, safety, and impacts on land use and business, including case studies in North America and Europe and identification of critical success factors. Early and experienced planners and designers and others learn about the operation and performance of protected bike lanes, including aspects of conflicts with pedestrians as well as ADA requirements.

1:30 to 1:40 pm Call to Order by Gord Lovegrove

1:40 to 2:50 pm - Bikeways / cycle tracks design – what works & what doesn’t (each 15 + 2.5 Q/A mins)
