The field of bikeway planning is rapidly evolving. This course will bring you up to speed on the cutting edge in practice and research, offering valuable skills for your professional life. It will cover the fundamentals of bikeway planning and design through an intensive week of interactive classroom and field experience. Instructors will integrate transit access and connections, bridges, trail crossings, and other special features into discussions, while using project examples to highlight practical applications of the principles and techniques covered. Effective education and encouragement programs, including public involvement strategies, will also be discussed.
“I found Portland to be the perfect “living studio” and the partnership between IBPI, PSU and the City extremely well-managed. I am still in contact with several students from the workshop and trade professional information with them via e-mail quite regularly. These relationships have been beneficial for all.”
Shanta Frantz, City of Tacoma, and 2012 workshop participant
