Detailed, prescriptive guidance for designing safe intersections between trails and roadways is scarce, and trail crossings often present complex, nonstandard design problems for engineers and planners. This webinar offers an overview of current design guidance and details on how some jurisdictions are addressing safety for cyclists and pedestrians at complex intersections on busier highways. Case studies from San Jose, California, and Virginia’s Washington and Old Dominion Trail will provide design examples that include at-grade and grade-separated crossings; trail entrances and transitions; use of innovative signage and bollards; experimental pavement markings; and evaluating the effectiveness of combined treatments.

Key takeaways:
• Understand the challenges and current guidance related to designing safe trail and road intersections

• Explore design considerations including safety issues at unsignalized crossings; preferred treatments for trail entrances; alternatives to at-grade crossings; and use of signs, pavement markings and bollards

• Learn from case studies, including experimental pavement markings and evaluation of newly approved signage and signals to address improved yielding rates at crossings
