Design Treatments to Transition from Trails to Roadways
Wednesday, October 15th, 2:00 – 3:00 p.m., EcoCentre Boardroom
- Understand the challenges and current guidance related to designing safe trail and road intersections
- Explore design considerations including safety issues at unsignalized crossings; preferred treatments for trail entrances; alternatives to at-grade crossings; and use of signs, pavement markings and bollards
- Learn about examples of non-standard use of pavement markings and signals that have improved safety
Detailed, prescriptive guidance for designing safe intersections between trails and roadways is scarce, and trail crossings often present complex, nonstandard design problems for engineers and planners. Attend this webinar for an overview of current design guidance and to learn how some jurisdictions help cyclists and pedestrians travel safely across a roadway on a trail or shared-use path. Case studies from San Jose, California, and Virginia’s Washington and Old Dominion Trail will provide design examples that include at-grade and under grade crossings; trail entrances; use of signs and bollards; alternative pavement markings; and experimental use of signals.
