Innovative Facilities

Facilities such as protected bikeways, green bike lanes, and one- and two-way cycle tracks have broad appeal across the U.S. because they meet people’s needs for “active transportation” and recreation while providing physical separation between them and traffic. While these innovative facilities are increasingly popular, they do present inherent operational challenges requiring a careful, proactive design approach. Our staff of facility design, engineering, and forensic experts help federal, state, and local jurisdictions develop and implement options for mitigating these operational challenges. Our pioneering design methods are evident in FHWA, AASHTO, and NACTO design guidance.

We specialize in the planning, design, and engineering of innovative facilities such as:
• Bikeways
• Buffered bike lanes
• Protected bikeways
• Green bike lanes
• Two-way cycle tracks
• One-way cycle tracks
• Sidepaths
