Design, Implementation and Operation of Bicycle Facilities
Technology Transfer Program of the Institute of Transportation Studies at the University of California Berkeley offers two courses (4.1.06)
Bicycle traffic is increasing in California, as both a recreational activity and a commuting option. As a result, cities and counties need to develop well-designed bicycle plans that address network design, safety, and storage. An upcoming class, sponsored by the Technology Transfer Program of the Institute of Transportation Studies at the University of California Berkeley, can help you.
This two-day class for local and state government transportation engineers, planners, and bicycle program managers provides a complete overview that will aid in the implementation of safe and efficient community bikeway systems. Specific topics that will be covered in detail include federal and state bike policies; design standards and requirements; how to build bike paths, bike routes and bike boulevards; over/under crossings; developing and implementing a bicycle plan; best practices for traffic signals, surface interruptions, and loop detectors; strategies to integrate bike travel into the transportation network; and lighting and signage.
