New NHI Bike Facility Design

The new Bicycle Facility Design web-based training course from the National Highway Institute (NHI), helps practitioners deliver high-quality, safe, multimodal projects efficiently and effectively by delivering critical planning and design information. It covers principles of bicyclist safety, comfort, and connectivity, selection of bikeway type and associated design considerations at an intermediate level, and national planning and design resources. The course length is estimated at 8 hours through 10 modules, and is appropriate for planners, engineers, and others interested in the planning and design of bicycle facilities.
