Join us for a one-day technical training conference on best practices for bicycle and pedestrian transportation facility planning and design, led by Toole Design trainers, Rob Burchfield, P.E., Senior Engineer in Toole Design’s Portland Office and formerly Portland’s City Traffic Engineer, and Trung Vo, P.E., AICP, a certified planner and professional engineer in Toole Design’s Denver office.
This workshop is tailored for Wyoming transportation sector professionals, including WYDOT personnel, city and county engineers, planners, consultants, construction technicians, maintenance crew leaders, and others engaged in the planning and design of streets and bicycle and pedestrian infrastructure. Community elected leaders are also welcome.
The workshop will focus on:
1. Training and guidance in the best practices for bicycle and pedestrian design, including multimodal planning as part of larger projects as well as stand-alone active transportation projects.
2. Review of the latest recommended design guidelines including upcoming AASHTO guides and FHWA resources.
3. Considerations for bicyclists and pedestrians in street design and operations with a focus on rural WY communities.
The training will include several topics in the Every Day Counts goals for 2019-2020, and the trainers will highlight specific examples helpful for Wyoming communities, including Safe Transportation for Every Pedestrian (STEP). The training will also highlight recommendations from the Wyoming Bicycle and Pedestrian System Report the Wyoming Legislature completed in 2018.
The workshop takes place June 27, 2019, from 8:30 am to 4 pm at the Hilton Garden Inn Laramie. The cost of the workshop is $55, which includes lunch, breaks, and all class materials.
