ITE's Bicycle Signal Resource Hub - A Key Resource for Designing & Operating Bicycle Signals

When: Tuesday, February 8, 2022 -- 3:00 - 4:30 PM ET

This webinar is led by the ITE Pedestrian & Bicycle Standing Committee. 

Webinar Description:

This webinar will introduce ITE’s new Bicycle Signal Resource Hub, which was recently established on ITE’s website. This Resource Hub was developed under the direction of ITE’s Bicycle and Pedestrian Standing Committee by a group of experts in bike signal design and operation. The purpose of the Resource Hub is to serve as a reliable and informative resource for the design, implementation, and operational guidance of bicycle signals in the United States.

This webinar will provide attendees with up-date information on design and operational guidance for bicycle signal design and will include an overview of the contents of ITE’s Resource Hub, including the following:

  • Current U.S. and International Design Guidance
  • Current Practices in Bicycle Signal Detection
  • Bicycle Signal Design, Bicycle Signal Timing & Phasing Parameters

The webinar will also include case study examples and discussion on challenges designers face when implementing bicycle signals. These challenges include gaps in current U.S. design practices, limitations for design options associated with the MUTCD’s Interim Approval for Optional Use of a Bicycle Signal Face (IA-16), and design considerations for separated bike lanes and two-way bikeways. Finally, there will be discussion regarding the design guidance proposed to be included in the new bicycle signal chapter in the next update of the MUTCD.

Learning Objectives:
Attendees of this webinar will be able to:

  • Provide background on why the Resource Hub was developed and how it is helpful to engineers and planners responsible for designing and operating multimodal infrastructure.
  • Highlight key elements of the Resource Hub for transportation professionals responsible for designing and operating bicycle signals.
  • Describe current design guidance contained in the MUTCD’s Interim Approval for Optional Use of a Bicycle Signal Face (IA-16) as well as the guidance proposed to be included in the new bicycle signal chapter in the next update of the MUTCD.
  • Discuss several of the more common challenges faced by bicycle signal designers and present design options agencies have implemented to address these challenges.
