NACTO Bike Guide Training at the Oregon Active Transportation Summit

The Oregon Active Transportation Summit (OATS) annually offers education on a broad array of active transportation topics. This year’s Summit will be April 16-17 in Salem.

Offered on Monday, April 16th of the summit will be an intensive day-long training on the National Association of City Transportation Officials (NACTO) Bikeway Design Guide. Completing the training offers 6 professional development hours.

The NACTO Guide presents both detailed designs and examples of how best practice bikeways are being implemented throughout North America. The training—taught by Roger Geller, Rob Burchfield and Peter Koonce—will cover the 21 designs found in the guide as well as other treatments in use, but not yet covered there. The course is intended for traffic engineers, project managers, planners and anyone interested in the nuts and bolts and discussion of more recent bikeway designs.

To take the course, register here for the summit!
Registration is $50, which includes conference sessions, lunch and the evening reception. In addition to the bikeway design training is a full two-day agenda that promises a stimulating summit. If you cannot attend both days at the least please plan to stay for the evening talk and reception that follows.

A hard-copy of the NACTO Guide is available for an additional $40 when you register.
