In 2017-2021, a total of 702 pedestrians were killed in work zone crashes in the US, according to NHTSA. Non-motorized users such as pedestrians and bicyclists face unique challenges in navigating work zones. As public agencies and contractors, we are bound by the MUTCD to provide for pedestrian traffic in our work zones and we should consider bicyclists. The MUTCD guidance for pedestrian and bicyclist access, along with best practices, will be covered in this webinar.
Topics discussed include detour and diversion of sidewalks, channelizing devices, detectable edging, temporary curb ramps, effective communication, and bicyclist accommodation.
- Understand the Guidelines for Accommodating Pedestrians and Bicyclists
- Describe Best Practices for Pedestrians and Bicyclists in Work Zones
This webinar is provided at no cost and will award a certificate to those fully attending and completing the webinar. Professional Development Hours will be provided to those that request these during registration. A total of 1.0 PDH can be earned for fully attending the webinar.
