“Conflict Resolution: Good Sidepath Design”
An Association of Pedestrian & Bicycle Professional Webinar
Wednesday, November 14, 1:00 PM Mountain Daylight Time
In the 1st Floor Conference room, 2825 3rd Avenue North
Presenters will summarize the findings of a recent safety analysis of sidepaths in Michigan. The summary of these crash trends helped inform the development of a guide for the design of sidepaths. This design process integrates the highest quality of sidepath design into the variety of MDOT project proposals, ranging from minor roadway modifications to full-depth reconstruction. This eight-step design process provides guidance for a designer to rate the highest quality segment and crossing facilities. In addition, the project included the development of concise, user-friendly educational materials to help drivers, bicyclists, and designers address the common sidepath crash types and improve bicyclist and pedestrian safety. This webinar will also provide a summary of the shared use and sidepath design recommendations from the upcoming AASHTO guide.
