In addition, this webinar will discuss working examples that have been implemented in the City of Medford, Oregon.

Learning Objectives:
  • Recognize safety concerns and challenges of designing bicycle infrastructure in and around skewed railroad grade crossings
  • Discuss newly designed projects and the planning, design, and implementation of two-way separated bike lanes
  • Relate a summary of updated revisions made to the MUTCD 11th Edition with respect to cyclist
