Please bring your lunch and join us for a local screening of the Association of Pedestrian and Bicycle Professionals' webinar, "Optimize Signals for Pedestrians and Bicyclists".

Signals are important traffic control devices that, if designed and operated consistent with multimodal policies, can encourage walking and cycling. They also have a significant impact on speed, an important factor in having a street that works for all users. Established techniques and new technology for optimizing signals can help create a safe, efficient multimodal transportation system. Attend this webinar to learn how to evaluate traffic signal functions and determine what strategies can be used to make them more effective for your community.


This session suggests a framework based on policy and lessons from the private sector to prioritize signal projects; it includes a discussion of considerations for signal timing in downtown areas and strategies to reduce delays for cyclists and pedestrians; and an overview of emerging tools for further innovation in signal timing.
