Bikeway Design in Context: Determining the right facility for the right street
Wednesday, June 5 | 12:00 to 1:15 p.m.
City of Eugene Engineering Wells Fargo 4th Floor Lyle Conference Room
99 E. Broadway at Broadway and Oak
Bikeway Design in Context: As bikeway design options have multiplied and evolved, the decision-making process for practitioners has become increasingly complex. What kinds of streets are best suited to cycle tracks? When should an engineer use a buffered bike lane rather than a conventional bike lane? Are shared lane markings appropriate for busy streets or only on local roads? This session will analyze the decision-making process that different cities go through when answering such questions, looking beyond speed and ADT to consider elements as varied as context, parking, transit routes and street width.
