Description

Federal, state and local policies assert that pedestrian facilities are important parts of a multi-modal transportation system. Communities across California are asking for more emphasis on walkability, with facilities that are safe and comfortable for all pedestrians, including those who are disabled. Recent updates to the Manual of Uniform Traffic Control Devices provided more option to address pedestrian safety and convenience. This new course covers principles and good practices, including how to plan, design, and operate a wide range of pedestrian-friendly facilities, including sidewalks, crosswalks, and other public spaces adjoining or intersecting the vehicular transportation system. Application of current standards and guidelines is emphasized. Case studies supplement lectures.

The course is developed to meet the training needs of persons charged with preliminary planning, development, or design of high-quality pedestrian facilities. It will also be valuable for persons responsible for planning pedestrian friendly networks, interested in learning how to deliver quality facilities, or desiring tools to remodel existing facilities to better serve user needs.

Topics Include

  • treatment options for safe pedestrian crossings, including signal options and operations
  • design guidelines & standards for pedestrian-friendly sidewalks, transit stops, and public spaces
  • integrate safe and attractive pedestrian facilities with motorized traffic, Vision Zero
  • ADA requirements, guidelines, and implementation strategies
  • formulate community design guidelines to account for pedestrians
  • integrating pedestrian basic needs and concerns into policies and planning codes
  • use of GIS tools

What You Will Learn

Students learn how to create a variety of pedestrian-friendly facilities while staying within federal and state standards and guidelines for safety and meeting current ADA requirements.

Trainees will gain an in-depth understanding of the design considerations that should guide the development of pedestrian master plans. Trainees will be better prepared to develop quality designs, apply design principles to inform project planning phases, and address issues that may limit effectiveness of existing facilities.

Who Should Attend

This course is designed for engineers, planners, and consultants with responsibility for planning, designing or constructing pedestrian facilities along streets and highways.

This course is most appropriate for persons interested in understanding how to design a facility that meets user needs, encourages additional usage and growth in walking and preserves or improves safety for all users. While the course is designed for persons who may be charged with design of pedestrian facilities, it will offer value and insight to persons who are interested in or charged with oversight of the project selection, refinement, and design process.
