16 How to Select a Bikeway? Numerous factors to consider: Roadway function Traffic volume Speed Traffic mix (e.g. truck %) EXPECTED users skill, age, volume, destinations DESIGN user group Road conditions: space, intersections, parking demand Topography, land uses Bikeway network connectivity/continuity

21 Rural/Suburban Bikeway Continuum

22 Shared Roadways Wide outside lanes Shared lane markings Bike Boulevards

23 Shared Lane Marking More flexible than traditional signalized intersections for bicycle crossings Especially useful for bike boulevard crossings Can be used as a wayfinding marking and/or to denote a shared roadway PORTLAND, OR

31 Bicycle Boulevards Major Intersections

32 Anne St. Bike Boulevard

33 Anne St. Bike Boulevard

34 Do NOT confuse BB with Diversionary Bike Routes Thoroughfares are vital, as they offer the most direct routes Destinations are often located on thoroughfares Without BB treatments, local streets can be slow & discontinuous Without BB treatments, arterials can be difficult to cross Reentering thoroughfare occurs w/o special treatment Some cyclists choose thoroughfares anyway, even without appropriate treatment

35 BIKE LANES

36 Bike Lanes Conventional Bike Lanes Buffered Bike Lanes Contra-Flow Bike Lane Left-Side Bike Lane

37 Shoulders shoulders 3 ft (0.9m) help bicyclists any shoulder better than none (AASHTO)

38 BUFFERED BIKE LANES Charlotte, Remount Rd Greater comfort level than conventional bike lane Passing zone Less effective on streets with loading or double-parking

39 Buffered Bike Lane, Goldsboro, NC

41 Left-side Bike Lanes 2012 Edition

42 Uphill Bike Lane NW Vaughn

43 Colored Bike Facilities Commonly applied at Intersections Driveways Conflict Areas Along cycle tracks or enhanced facilities Charlotte, 4 th Street

44 Sidepaths

45 NC280, Mills River NC

46 NC280, Mills River NC

47 CYCLE TRACKS

48 Cycle Tracks One-Way Protected Cycle Tracks Raised Cycle Tracks Two-way Cycle Tracks

49 ONE WAY PROTECTED CYCLE TRACK One way cycle track Long Beach, CA Decreases stress, increases comfort on high traffic streets Left-side application with bus routes Parking lane as protection Credit: Bikeable Communities

50 CHATTANOOGA

51 RAISED CYCLE TRACK Raised to sidewalk-level or intermediate curb Capital Reconstruction Project Decrease Sidewalk riding CAMBRIDGE, MA

52 Russelville, AR

53 TWO-WAY CYCLE TRACK

54 TWO-WAY CYCLE TRACK NEW YORK, NY Edge conditions with few crossings Contra-flow movement on one-way street Not enough room for oneway cycle track on both sides of the street

55 Recent NYC safety data 9th Avenue Cycle Track: Injuries to all street users down 56% Injuries to pedestrians down 29% Injuries to cyclists down 57% Sidewalk riding down 84% Grand Street Cycle Track: Injuries to all street users down 31% Reportable crashes down 25% Injuries to pedestrians down 21% Sidewalk riding down 84%
