Average Rating

4 25
In the past 10 years the United States has experienced an 80% increase in the use of bicycles as a mode of transportation. While in contrast, there has only been a 5% increase in the use of motor vehicles. For this reason, more and more cities are developing robust bicycle transportation networks. One of the key elements being used to improve bicycle transportation networks is the construction of buffered bike lanes. In this interactive online course, key planning and design considerations for buffered bike lanes will be reviewed. Engineers, Architects, Contractors and other professionals from the A/E industry will learn design guidelines for elements that form part of buffered bike lanes and that support their implementation, such as traffic separator options, mid-block crossings and intersection accommodations.
Course Objectives
At the end of this course, you will be able to:
 
  • List three planning considerations for the implementation of buffered bike lanes that safeguard the health, safety and welfare of the public.
  • Name the three key elements that need to be considered for choosing locations for buffered bike lanes.
  • Recall the four step process used in designing buffered bike lanes.
  • List three different elements that can be used to separate bike lanes from vehicular traffic.
  • Recall at least 2 safety features in buffered bike lane designs that enhance the operations at midblock locations and roadway intersections.

Very interesting and well presented
By (Architect) on Aug, 31, 2019
Very interesting and well presented. Of course there is repetition, which seems to be the hallmark of the Red Vector Courses, but it was strategically placed and used to set up or conclude. The chapters were each distinct and did not overlap with each other. The clarity in the course structure was appreciated.
