The U.S. National Association of City Transportation Officials (NACTO) has recently released the Urban Bikeway Design Guide, an intiative undertaken by one of the 2011 Complete Streets Forum's keynote speakers – Mia Birk and Portland's City Traffic Engineer, Rob Burchfield. It comes timely as a much needed reference guide for traffic engineers and transporatation authorities on the new developments in bikeway treatments happening in Europe and some parts of the United States.
For many, this is a huge step forward towards creating better on-street bicycle facilities. With 3-D images of designs, case studies, and photos of real projects, the guide is user-friendly. To learn more, click here or visit NACTO's website.
