Roundabouts That Work for Cyclists and Pedestrians  

Panelists:
Alek Pochowski, Kittelson & Associates
Bastian Schroeder, Kittelson & Associates

Bicycle activity and the use of roundabouts for intersection control within the United States have both increased dramatically in recent years. Since its publication in 2010, NCHRP Report 672: Roundabouts, an Informational Guide, Second Edition, has served as a national guide on the different aspects of roundabouts, including planning, analysis, design, and construction. However, since 2010, a significant amount of bicycle-related design material has been released, including FHWA's Separated Bike Lane Planning and Design Guide (2015), and NACTO's Urban Bikeway Design Guide (2012), both of which do not address bicycle facilities at roundabouts. 

The first part of this webinar will provide a summary of current and potential design best practices for bicycles at roundabouts using domestic and international examples, and provide an overview of the available guidance available for practitioners designing or reviewing roundabouts for cyclists. The second half of the webinar will focus on pedestrians at roundabouts, with a discussion of the most recent research efforts which led to the development of NCHRP Report 834. NCHRP Project 834 presents guidance for the application of crossing solutions at roundabouts for pedestrians with vision disabilities.  The guidebook provides an accessibility assessment framework and a methodology for evaluating treatment alternatives for a proposed crossing, as well as wayfinding accommodations. Guidance is provided based on the feasible range of geometric and traffic operational conditions under which similar treatments have been demonstrated to enhance accessibility.
