Edge lane roads (ELR), also known as advisory bike lanes, are shared streets in which two-way traffic shared a single center lane, and edge lanes on either side are generally reserved for vulnerable road users. TRB will host a webinar on Tuesday, February 15, 2022 from 2:00-3:30 PM Eastern that will present safety applications of ELRs. These applications include their potential use as a town’s main street, as an on-street connector for a shared use trail, and as a countermeasure for road-departure crashes on low-volume roads. Presenters will discuss research that explore the safety of ELRs versus that of standard two-lane roads.

This webinar is sponsored by the TRB Standing Technical Committees on Bicycle Transportation, Pedestrians, and Human Factors of Infrastructure Design and Operations.
