Intersections That Work for Pedestrians and Bicyclists
October 19, 2016 @ 1:00 p.m.
1st Floor Conference Room, 2825 3rd Avenue North, Miller Building
Intersections present the greatest safety risk for vulnerable road users and are the point of greatest potential conflict. The Dutch approach to intersection design of separating modes and increasing sociability through eye contact presents an opportunity for significant safety improvements to transportation networks while meeting operational demands. This webinar will evaluate the safety issues for pedestrians and cyclists that lie in traditional intersection designs, as well as identify the principal elements involved in protected intersection design and explore their role in increasing safety. In addition, case studies of safety improvements from both Dutch and North American contexts where protected intersection designs have been implemented will be discussed.
