Mobility35 Bicycle and Pedestrian Accommodations
Bicycle and pedestrian safety has been a major concern not only on the local roads, but also on the state highways. To better accommodate bicycles and pedestrians on state highways, TTI researchers performed a corridor-level assessment of bicycle and pedestrian crossing opportunities along I-35 within Williamson, Travis and Hays Counties; conducted before-after studies for projects where accommodation for bicyclists and pedestrians were planned; and assessed innovative and specific design strategies for addressing safety and comfort of people who walk and bicycle along and across the highway
Bicycle Planning for TxDOT San Antonio District
The Texas A&M Transportation Institute completed the San Antonio District Rural Bike Plan on behalf of the Texas Department of Transportation San Antonio District. This rural bike plan offers guidance and support for decisions related to bicycling in the district. It includes an assessment of existing conditions and offers a prioritization of roadways for improving bicycling accommodations based on a data-driven approach that along with public input and local knowledge, the district planners and engineers can use to address needs and improve bicycling.
BE SAFE BE SEEN Implementation
TTI researchers are working with TxDOT to develop and implement education and awareness campaigns about bicycle and pedestrian safety. BE SAFE BE SEEN Implementation plans have been developed for the TxDOT Austin district and the TxDOT Waco district. The plans identify tools and strategies to communicate safety messages to particular audiences. TTI researchers have also developed plans for evaluating the effectiveness of these programs.
