The Best Guides and Manuals You've Never Heard Of
All About Guidance #1 – What's in Your Library?
Wrap up 2015 and start 2016 by taking a fresh look at best practices guides and guidance for bicycle and pedestrian professionals. APBP offers two consecutive webinars inviting you to think more broadly about the guidance documents you use and explore recent developments in how to apply that guidance.
On December 16, APBP asks which resources belong in the practitioner’s library and considers ways to navigate effectively among different sources of information. MassDOT’s new Separated Bike Lane Planning & Design Guide frames a discussion led by Andy Clarke (Director of Strategy, Toole Design Group) about design flexibility, engineering judgment, and the process of integrating resources. Other panelists are Tony Hull of Civil Streets and Dan Goodman of FHWA. Dan will discuss FHWA guidance and FHWA’s new Design Resource Index.
On January 20, the discussion segues to practical tips in applying design flexibility: how agencies can select among treatments and designs for specific conditions.
