“Cities For Cycling” in Chicago
January 26, 2012 § Leave a comment
NACTO, the National Association of City Transportation Officials, has launched a national project called, “Cities for Cycling” – a traveling conference, aimed at improving the best practices of city in regards to implementing, planning, and creating policy around cycling. By targeting the city officials who, at the end of the day, will be the point people for issues of active transportation, NACTO hopes to share up-to-date and forward reaching designs that can help blaze the trails (or bike paths) for other cities to replicate or look into implementing.
Their ‘Bikeway Design Guide‘ imparts detailed information on best practices for bike lanes, cycle tracks, intersection design, signals, and signage. Something that in any major city often lacks consistency and proper visibility.
