AASHTO Guide for the Development of Bicycle Facilities, 5th Edition Workshop
The 5th edition of the “AASHTO Bike Guide” is currently in development and expected to be released later in 2019. The Arizona ITE and Arizona Chapter of the Association of Pedestrian and Bicycle Professionals will be co-hosting a 3-hour overview of what is in the new Guide (hint: this is a significant update from the 4th edition published in 2012).
The AAHSTO Guide for the Development of Bicycle Facilities (“AASHTO Bike Guide”) has been the go-to guide for the planning and design of bicycle facilities for several decades. In recent years many agencies have been focused on developing “all ages and abilities” bicycle facilities to attract greater numbers of bicyclists and develop more resilient multimodal transportation systems. The 5th edition of the AASHTO Bike Guide, which is currently in development and due to be published later in 2019, is a significant update from the previous edition with a focus on “high comfort” bicycle facilities for a variety of different contexts and users. This workshop will review new content areas of the guide and major updates, including context-based facility selection, separated bike lanes, protected intersections, roundabouts, bicyclist-pedestrian interactions, crossing treatments, signal phasing for reducing conflicts, rural roadways, maintenance and operations, and experimental treatments, among others.
