FHWA Small Town and Rural Multimodal Networks Design Guide
Sunday, February 25, 2018

The recent announcement of the $93M Ontario Municipal Commuter Cycling Program has created a renewed interest in active transportation infrastructure across Ontario. OGRA is pleased that this year’s Small Town Forum will capitalize on this interest.

The new FHWA Small Town and Rural Multimodal Networks Design Guide translates existing street design guidance and facility types for bicycle and pedestrian safety and comfort to the small town and rural context.

The guide, published by the U.S. Federal Highway Administration (FHWA), presents compelling photographs, visual illustrations, and technical diagrams to communicate design issues, network analyses and solutions in a small town setting. Paired with the design guidance for each facility type is a representative case study, telling the story of a small community’s success at implementing multimodal facilities in a non-urban context.

Alta Planning + Design had a lead role in the creation of the Guide. This training workshop will include material from the Guide in the Canadian context. The session will be led by Alta staff, including Kate Whitfield from the Ottawa office and Kim Voros, Alta’s GIS Manager, from Seattle, Washington.

There is no fee to attend this event however registration is required.

Please mark the Small Town Forum Box under SUNDAY AFTERNOON EVENTS on the Registration Form.
