Wayfinding Options for Cyclists
Bicycle wayfinding signs are different than other signs placed
in the right of way because they are part of a system of sequential destination
information; thus, planning, placement and maintenance are critical to maintaining
the system. This webinar will go beyond the guidance found in the MUTCD and the
2012 AASHTO Bicycle Guide to consider the details of developing and
implementing a city-wide bicycle sign system. Planners, engineers, municipal
staff and consultants should attend this webinar to gain a better understanding
of an increasingly common bicycle facility.
The presentation will cover these
The value of providing wayfinding for urban
Approaches to planning and implementation
Strategies to determine and prioritize signed
Issues of planning, placement and maintenance of
signs, including sign design and placement within the right of way that
integrates guidelines from the 2009 MUTCD, the 2012 AASHTO Bicycle Guide, and
the AASHTO Green Book
Special issues related to trails
Examples from Seattle, Baltimore, and other locations will
be included. (APBP suggests following up with the webinar on January
16, which will address the topic of Best Practices in Pedestrian Wayfinding.)
