WE07 - Protected Bicycle Lanes Finally Pedal Their Way to KC

Aug 29, 2018 8:30am ‐ Aug 29, 2018 9:20am


Description

Kansas City’s Armour Boulevard is primarily lined with historic residences and apartment towers between Broadway Boulevard and the Paseo. Traffic studies of this 20-block corridor concluded that a road diet to reduce the existing 4-lanes with sharrows to a 3-lane width would accommodate separated bike lanes while maintaining the existing parallel parking configuration. The design includes designated bike boxes, two-stage left turn queue boxes, conflict/mixing zones, and accommodates the numerous bus stops along the corridor.

Learning Objectives: At the conclusion of this session, you will be better able to: 

  • Identify engineering evaluation and analysis steps required to implement a road diet.
  • Evaluate different on-street bicycle facilities, including sharrows, standard, buffered, and protected bike lanes.
  • Anticipate how public involvement and politics/policy decisions can influence the design and construction processes.
