the typical approach
The “Typical” Approach
  • We too often focus on putting active transportation as a “luxury”
  • This is the result of planning for cars, not moving people
bicycles and pedestrians
Bicycles and Pedestrians
  • Bicycle access is more than bike lanes, and may not even be needed
  • Pedestrian access is often overlooked
    • EVERYONE is a pedestrian at some point in their day, some just longer than others
the bicycle pedestrian master plan design guide
The Bicycle/Pedestrian Master Plan Design Guide
  • Created in October 2011, the Guide was designed to provide:
    • Information for Local Government to create/update their Master Plan
    • Multiple options of involvement
    • Broad range of infrastructure/facility options
for the engineers
For The Engineers…
  • Recommendations are based on various manuals (AAHSTO, MUTCD, etc.) and on promising practices from local, national, and worldwide sources
  • The emphasis is on local successes, and examples are given from Utah locations
