Bicycles and Pedestrians: Meeting the Needs of All Users

February 9, 2023 @ 9:00 am - February 10, 2023 @ 12:00 pm EST

Many communities in the United States were not designed for pedestrian and bicycle travel. However, today walkability and bikeability are important for active transportation and are indicators of a livable community. The objective of this workshop is to equip participants with information on providing safer, more connected, more comfortable, accessible communities so that walking is a viable transportation choice for everyone, including seniors, children and people with visual, mobility and other disabilities and that bicycling is a viable transportation choice for people of all ages. The class provides current information on the design, operation and maintenance of successful pedestrian and bicycle facilities. Emphasis is placed on the importance of maintaining accessibility and compliance with relevant guidelines while at the same time encouraging innovation. This workshop should be of interest to those in a variety of fields including engineering (design, traffic, maintenance and construction) and public works, planning, landscape architecture, recreation and parks, law enforcement and public health-related fields.

PDH – 6 hours Master Road Scholar Credit A Zoom link to attend will be sent the day before the class starts.
