Design of Bicycle Facilities - Cycle Track Design
Course ID: RV-113559W | 2 hours | Advanced
About this Course:
In the past 10 years, the United States has experienced an 80% increase in the use of bicycles as a mode of transportation. While in contrast, there has only been a 5% increase in the use of motor vehicles. For this reason, more and more cities are developing main bicycle thoroughfare facilities, such as cycle tracks, as key elements of their transportation network. Cycle tracks can be considered as bicycle arterials or bicycle highways; this interactive online course will outline the planning and design elements needed to develop cycle tracks that support this main thoroughfare purpose.
- Engineers, Architects, Contractors and other professionals from the A/E industry will learn design guidelines for elements that form part of cycle tracks and that support their implementation, such as ADA accommodations, vehicular traffic level considerations, and the design of geometric elements to accommodate on-street parking, transit facilities and left-turn movements from the cycle track
