Are traffic signals primarily just for vehicles? No, and there are methods for using pedestrian and bicycle data from a variety of sources to improve the safety, accessibility, overall experience of non-motorized users of signalized intersections.
- Describe methods to estimate pedestrian volumes with traffic signal data.
- Summarize microsimulation methods to determine vehicle-bicycle conflicts.
- Identify improvements to support accessible intersections and the implications of connecting vehicle transit service on pedestrian safety.
Moderator: Andy Swisher, P.E., PTOE, Project Manager, HR Green
