NACTO and APBP partnered to produce a three-part webinar series that drills down into NACTO's Urban Bikeway Design Guide. The series provides training on key focus areas within the NACTO Guide and is geared towards practitioners working on the ground to make cities safer places to bicycle. Sessions focus on intersection treatments, contextual guidance and raised cycle tracks, with examples drawn from NACTO cities. Municipal and MPO or RPC staff, consultants, and others working on urban transportation planning and engineering, as well as elected officials and staff of bicycle advocacy organizations.

Sessions in the series cover these topics:

#1, Bikeway Design at Intersections
First produced May 29, 2013

Safe, effective intersection design requires visibility and predictability among all street users. In unpredictable urban environments, achieving these goals can be difficult. Bikeway Design at Intersections provides an overview of the intersection treatments in the NACTO guide, including bike boxes, bicycle signals and mixing zones, and analyzes how to resolve and mitigate several complex intersection design problems that commonly arise, with particular attention to cyclist turning movements. 

Roger Geller, Bicycle Coordinator, City of Portland
Jamie Parks, Senior Transportation Planner, City of Oakland

#2, Bikeway Design in Context: Determining the right facility for the right street
First produced June 5, 2013

As bikeway design options have multiplied and evolved, the decision-making process for 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 markings appropriate for busy streets or only on local roads? This session will analyze the decision-making process that different cities go through when answering such questions, looking beyond speed and ADT to consider elements as varied as context, parking, transit routes and street width.

Joshua Benson, Bicycle and Pedestrian Program Director, New York City Department of Transportation
Nathan Wilkes, Associate Traffic Engineer, Neighborhood Connectivity Division, City of Austin

#3, Next Generation Bikeway Design: Raised cycle tracks
First produced June 26, 2013

While many cities have relied primarily on signs and markings to radically transform their streets, a growing number of bikeways around the country have been improved and made permanent using higher cost materials, curb relocation and complex engineering. This session will look at two facilities that embody long term solutions for city streets. How can cities effectively move the curb without creating drainage problems? What "green” infrastructure solutions can be incorporated into these new bikeways? What are the highest and lowest cost alternatives to these designs?
