Rob Burchfield, City Traffic Engineer, Portland (Ore.) Bureau of Transportation Hayes Lord, Director, Bicycle Program, NYC Department of Transportation

3 Cycle Tracks: Concept and Design Practices Part 1: General Design, Intersection Safety Treatments, and Safety Studies Peter Furth Northeastern University apbp webinar, Feb 17, 2010

4 Cycle track (n): A bicycle path along a road, physically separated from motor traffic, and distinct from the sidewalk. 4 Not a shared use path not used by pedestrians Other terms: sidepath, bike path, raised lane, separated lane One-way and two-way versions exist

5 Why Cycle Tracks? #1 reason for not riding a bike = Traffic danger Dutch Guide recommended treatments Multilane road with speed limit > 20 mph: Cycle Track AASHTO Guide for the Development of Bicycle Facilities doesn t understand this desire for separation. Consider two options: mph multi-lane highway with 5-ft shoulder 2. Parallel route on local streets connected by bike paths most experienced and many casual adult riders will continue to use the shoulder for the sake of speed and convenience. 5

6 Engineering Guidance AASHTO Guide has no guidance on cycle tracks It has 9 warnings about parallel shared use paths: Not relevant to one-way cycle tracks 2-way cycle tracks have intersection and endpoint concerns similar to shared use paths, which can be addressed Other 7 concerns about parallel paths are silly Other sources of engineering guidance: Dutch Design Manual for Bicycle Traffic (CROW) 6

7 Physical Separation from motor traffic: Curb, raised median, parking lane, planting buffer, bollards, Levels: Street level, sidewalk level, in between 7

8 Separation from Pedestrians Painted line Change in level full or partial Vertical elements Different surface 8

9 Width and Functionality About 3.75 ft/ lane Buffers at edges Provision for Passing? One-way with passing: 7.5 ft Two-way, 2 lane 7.5 ft Obvious space advantage of 2-way Wider is better, but Narrow can work, too 9

10 Safety: One-Way or Two-Way? Europe: Better safety record with one-way cycle tracks Reasons for 2-way Space limitations Wrong-way bicyclists Difficult street crossings 10

11 Safety at Driveways & Minor Intersections: Make it look like a bicycle crossing, not a parking lane or sidewalk Bike silhouettes (Paris, Montreal) Color (Copenhagen) 11

12 Raise sidewalk & cycle track Makes priority clear Speed bump effect 12

13 At signalized intersections Left turn on green arrow only ( Protected left ) Bicycle signal heads if bikes green period will differ from cars 13

14 Leading thru arrow protects first flush of waiting bikes 14

15 Right-Turn Lanes Controlled by Green Arrows 15

16 Endpoints and Transitions Don t dump wrong-way traffic into street 16

17 Jughandles for Safer Crossovers B 17 A

18 18 Corral for turning bikes to wait

19 Myth of the Danger of Separated Paths False Sense of Security Origin: Vehicular cycling theory, not data Massive European experiment dismissed I ve heard that separated paths have 5 times greater crash risk. Moritz (TRR, 1997) 12 crashes (4.1%) on Other : sidewalks, parking lots,? Less than 1% of bicycling-miles on Other facilities Other Sidewalk Separated path??? Confused data, insufficient exposure 19

20 Comparative Studies of Bicycling, In- Street vs on-path Wachtel & Lewiston (ITE Journal, 1994) compared sidewalk bikeways to streets : Relative crash risk on sidewalk is1.8 Intersection crashes only! Accounting for mid-block crashes: relative risk is equal Ride in same direction as closest travel lane: sidewalk risk is 50% of instreet risk Montreal cycle tracks (publication pending), 10 years data, hundreds of crashes Crash risk in cycle track is 28% smaller than in-street risk In spite of non-ideal cycle track designs Conclusion: Perceived safety and Statistical safety are not at odds 20

22 Improve Safety Why Cycle Tracks? Eliminate Bike Lane/Shared Lane Obstructions Comfort, especially on High Speed/Volume Roadways Continuity of Pathway Experience Attract new riders Support Economic Development Enhance Pedestrian Environment/Urban Design Support Environmental/Climate Goals Support Transportation Goals Support Quality of Life Goals Support Public Health Goals, Especially for Children
