Bicycling Innovations for Small Towns and Rural Communities
Sponsored by APA Chapters & Divisions (approved for CM credit, event #9118616)
With the release of a new publication by the Federal Highway Administration (FHWA), the Small Town and Rural Multimodal Networks (STAR) Guide focuses on design guidelines that aim to improve bicycling and walking in communities seeking solutions more tailored to their small town needs. This webinar provides you with a first look into this idea book for smaller communities, with visualizations and guidance for contemporary walking and biking facilities. Based in FHWA and AASHTO guidance, the Small Town and Rural guide applies a flexible design approach to creating more comfortable places for walking and biking. In addition to a preview of this guide, this session will include recent examples of projects from small towns from throughout the Midwest by Alta Planning + Design and SEH.
