From 2011 to 2012, bicyclist fatalities rose more than 50% in Georgia. Urban arterial roads often pose significant risks to bicyclist safety due to high motor vehicle speeds and traffic volume, but there are proven design countermeasures that effectively address safety and access for all roadway users.
Experts from the City of Atlanta, ALTA Planning, the Atlanta Regional Commission, GDOT, and Georgia Bikes will share case studies and design guidance for road diets and refuge islands, as well as additional recommendations from AASHTO and the NACTO Urban Bikeway Design Guide.
This training supports the vision and goals of the state's Strategic Highway Safety Plan, Bicycle and Pedestrian Safety Action Plan, and GDOT's Complete Streets Design Policy adopted in 2012. Funding for this training generously provided by FHWA's Accelerating Safety Activities Program.
The training is free and will include a site visit to a relevant local roadway.
Space is limited to 25 participants.
