Bicycles and Pedestrian: Meeting the Needs (1 Day Hybrid Online Class)
June 16, 2020 @ 7:45 am - 4:00 pm EDT$50.00 – $200.00
Many communities in the United States were not designed for pedestrian and bicycle travel. However, today walkability and bikeabilityare important for active transportation and are indicators of a livable community. The objective of this workshop is to equip participants with information on designing and maintaining safer, 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 MUTCD compliance while at the same time encouraging innovation. Course topics covered are outlined below.
This hybrid online class will combine both live instruction and independent online work that you will complete during the day. Independent work will include quizzes, readings, videos and short assignments. Access to a computer with a webcam (either a camera that is built into your laptop or one that connects via USB), a reliable internet connection and a workspace that is free from distraction and noise will set you up for success.
