December 17/12 23:24 pm - Wayfinding Options for Cyclists
Posted by Editoress on 12/17/12
Bicycle wayfinding signs are different than other signs placed in the right of way because they are part of a system of sequential destination information; thus, planning, placement and maintenance are critical to maintaining the system. This webinar will go beyond the guidance found in the MUTCD and the 2012 AASHTO Bicycle Guide to consider the details of developing and implementing a city-wide bicycle sign system. Planners, engineers, municipal staff and consultants should attend this webinar to gain a better understanding of an increasingly common bicycle facility.
The presentation will cover these topics:
• The value of providing wayfinding for urban cyclists
• Approaches to planning and implementation
• Strategies to determine and prioritize signed bicycle routes
• Issues of planning, placement and maintenance of signs, including sign design and placement within the right of way that integrates guidelines from the 2009 MUTCD, the 2012 AASHTO Bicycle Guide, and the AASHTO Green Book
• Special issues related to trails
Examples from Seattle, Baltimore, and other locations will be included. (APBP suggests following up with the webinar on January 16th, which will address the topic of Best Practices in Pedestrian Wayfinding; click here to register.) Please note this is a 75-minute webinar.
