bicycle. Sessions will focus on intersection treatments, contextual guidance and
raised cycle tracks, with examples drawn from NACTO cities.
Design in Context: As
bikeway design options have multiplied and evolved, the decision-making
practitioners has become increasingly complex. What kinds
of streets are best suited to cycle tracks? When should an engineer use a
buffered bike lane rather than a conventional bike lane? Are shared lane
appropriate for busy streets or only on local roads? This session will

questions, looking beyond speed and ADT to consider elements as varied
parking, transit routes and street width. Presenters:
Benson, Bicycle and Pedestrian Program Director, New York City Department of
