Bikeway Design Principles, Planning, and Best Practices

Make your vision a reality and understand the different bikeway types and treatments that are appropriate for a given location.

When residents, workers, families, youths, and retirees can choose to bicycle easily, enjoyably, and confidently to their everyday destinations, your community has a strong foundation for health, fitness, reduced school and neighborhood traffic, and overall quality of life. But how can transportation planners, traffic engineers, citizen advisors, planning commissioners, and elected officials who do not currently use a bicycle for transportation develop an understanding of the community benefits of bicycle accommodations ('bikeways'), the spectrum of bikeway types, and which types are appropriate for various combinations of traffic speed, volume, and urban character? This material will help individuals serving in all these roles understand how to enhance streets and intersections so bicycling becomes a comfortable choice for a broad range of ages, abilities, and trip purposes. You will learn which bikeway types and treatments are appropriate on a given street and the elements of a Bicycle Master Plan or Active Transportation Plan to make your vision a reality. It is an excellent introduction to the field for planning and design staff and management.

Learning Objectives

  • You will be able to identify and describe the types of bikeways.
  • You will be able to recognize opportunities for transforming streets and intersections.
  • You will be able to discuss bikeway alternatives applicable to a given street’s characteristics.
  • You will be able to explain the benefits of a well-connected bikeway network with options for a wide range of bicyclist experience.
