Details

What is the biggest challenge pedestrians and cyclists face on the road? For some it is navigating turning vehicles. For others it is waiting for excessively long red light times or determining unmarked or unclear paths through intersections, or inadequate sight distance. In designing intersections and infrastructures the most vulnerable road users need to be considered. TRB will host a webinar on Tuesday, October 25, 2022 from 12:30 PM to 2:00 PM Eastern that will explore 20 performance measures, or design flags, that can help identify potential safety, accessibility, operational, or comfort issues for pedestrians and bicyclists. These design flags represent issues that can be addressed in the development and evaluation intersections and interchanges.

This webinar is based on NCHRP Report 948: Guide for Pedestrian and Bicyclist Safety at Alternative and Other Intersections and Interchanges.

This webinar is sponsored by the TRB Standing Technical Committee on Performance Effects of Geometric Design.

Registration is free for employees of TRB sponsors as well as Titanium and Cobalt Global Affiliates. The registration rate for all other attendees is $60. Sign into MyTRB.org to view registration information. Contact Patrice Davenport to inquire about becoming a TRB sponsor or global affiliate organization.

A recording will be sent to all registrants after the webinar.
