In the past 10 years the United States has experienced an 80% increase in the use of bicycles as a mode of transportation and a 30% increase in pedestrians. While in contrast, there has only been a 5% increase in the use of motor vehicles. For this reason, more and more cities are developing robust bicycle and pedestrian transportation networks. One of the key elements being used is that of multi-use paths. Engineers, Architects, Contractors and other professionals from the A/E industry will gain core knowledge under this course for the planning and design of multi-use paths. This interactive online course will cover key guidelines from AASHTO, FHWA and NACTO in the development of multi-use paths, with a special emphasis in ADA elements, geometric requirements such as horizontal and vertical curvature design, and the adequate development of multi-use path crossings and roadway mid-block crossings.
