ITE Southern Alberta Luncheon: Alberta Bicycle Facilities Design Guide
November 20, 2018 @ 11:30 am - 1:00 pm$10 – $400
The City of Calgary is working in partnership with Alberta Transportation, The City of Edmonton, The City of Red Deer, the Town of Canmore and Rocky View County to develop an Alberta specific design guide for bicycle facilities. The need for the development of a guide that can be used across the Province for bicycle facilities design came as a desire for more consistent application of bicycle facilities. The intent of the guide is that it can to be used by jurisdictions of all types and sizes, thus it was important that the development of the guide be a partnership that includes jurisdictions of different types and sizes. This presentation will outline the process, draft Design Guide and updated timeline.
