1 Road Diets: Reconfiguring Streets for Multi-Modal Travel Tom Grant, P.E., PTOE

2 What is a Road Diet? Reconfiguration of travel lanes to benefit all roadway users (i.e., Complete Street) Reclaiming the space Bike and transit lanes On-street parking Medians for center turn lanes, landscaping or pedestrian refuges Wider sidewalks Traditional 4-Lane Conversion

3 Why Road Diets? Proven FHWA safety countermeasure Retrofit opportunity to provide on-street bicycle facilities Improves safety and comfort for pedestrians by providing additional buffer from motor vehicles On a 4L undivided to 2L with center turn lane conversion, reduces rearend and side-swipe conflicts Improves speed limit compliance (i.e. traffic calming)

4 US DOT Policy Statement (March 11, 2010) The DOT policy is to incorporate safe and convenient walking and bicycling facilities into transportation projects. Every transportation agency, including DOT, has the responsibility to improve conditions and opportunities for walking and bicycling and to integrate walking and bicycling into their transportation systems. W 7 th Street, Fort Worth

5 TxDOT Policy (March 23, 2011) TxDOT is implementing the US DOT Policy It is critical that bicycle and pedestrian accommodations be considered and discussed as the need and purpose of a project is defined.

6 Continued US DOT Support for Safer Streets (September 2014) XXXXXX Pedestrian and bicyclist safety remains a top priority for the DOT 18-month campaign to reduce the growing number of pedestrian and bicyclist injuries and fatalities A Road Diet Guide is a 2015 FHWA Initiative Credit: US DOT Secretary Anthony Foxx Credit: tte-bike-share-launches

9 FHWA Proven Safety Countermeasure Since 2008, FHWA has promoted research-proven countermeasures to reduce roadway fatalities and serious injuries Guidance is included the FHWA Pedestrian and Bicycle Safety Guide and Countermeasure Selection System (PEDSAFE/BIKESAFE)

10 FHWA Proven Safety Countermeasure 29 percent reduction in all roadway crashes For road diets when modified from four travel lanes to two travel lanes with a two-way left-turn lane 70% of pedestrian fatalities occur at midblock crossing locations Road diets can reduce crossing distance and lower travel speeds Source:

11 Design Resources AASHTO Guide for the Development of Bicycle Facilities (2012) ITE Designing Walkable Urban Thoroughfares: A Context Sensitive Approach NACTO Urban Bikeway Design Guide NACTO Urban Street Design Guide

12 How do you determine if a road diet is appropriate? Simple evaluation should be performed Speeds Crashes Multi-modal volumes Existing and future volumes Network connectivity

13 Retrofitting Existing Streets Road Before Good road diet candidates: Moderate traffic volumes Popular or essential bicycle routes/links Roads with safety issues Transit corridors Main Streets Road After Picture credits:

14 What are the cost implications? When resurfacing already, restriping and signage can be easy ~$30,000 / mile Other cost implications Traffic signal modifications Signal head modifications Bike detection Vehicle detection modifications (especially loops) Signal timing changes Pavement repair or resurfacing Grate inlet modifications University Drive, Edmond, OK

15 Details Matter University Drive, Edmond, OK

16 Details Matter Inches are important Good idea to have it spray painted first before restriping

17 Non-traditional road diet example Vickery Street, Fort Worth Meetings with engineers, planners, and stakeholders Many alternatives were considered Final alternative included angled parking and onstreet bike lanes

18 Striping creates a defined place

19 Striping creates a defined place Lane Diet reduce lane widths without removing a travel lane Example uses 10 defined lanes and parallel parking for traffic calming

20 Striping creates a defined place Main Street, Fort Worth On-Street Parking Bike Lanes Door Buffer
