Times Change, People Change, Transportation Needs Change
This session emphasizes how street designers and planners need to update their approaches to reflect current values, new techniques, and the discoveries of recent research. The presenters, two of whom have been practicing as traffic engineers for many years, will discuss how to adapt transportation design and methodologies to the changing needs of communities, including control approaches to improve a mature existing bikeway network.

Developing, Using, and Expanding Bikeway Design Standards and Guidelines
Bikeway designers must generally work with ever-evolving standards and guidelines that describe good design. This panel brings expertise on the status and process of developing U.S. and State of California design guidelines and also describes the procedures that can be followed for demonstrating designs that are not yet shown in adopted design guides.

Bikeway Design Details: Small Facilities, Large Issues
Some of the details of bikeway design may seem trivial at times, but there can be no limit to the issues faced by a bikeway designer, especially while trying to adapt international design techniques to an existing roadway, without a support group and experience to minimize mistakes. In this session, a qualified panel of experts will describe some of the unique problems they've faced and their approach to finding solutions.
