JOIN US! We are excited to invite you to join us for another live webinar on Thursday, April 14th at 3pm CST where Laura Huizinga, Technical Sales Manager for Road Zipper, and Smita Sharma, Applications Engineer for Road Zipper, will be discussing bridge bike-ped path projects and community connectivity.
Bicycle users and pedestrians have increased over the last few decades especially in the metropolitan areas. It won’t be an exaggeration to call bike and pedestrian travel, also known as active travel, as the transportation mode for the future. Not only does active travel help in promoting environmental sustainability and health and fitness, it also plays a key role in improving transit ridership, community livability, multi-modal transportation planning efforts and traffic congestion.
Well-connected and safe bike and pedestrian infrastructure is increasingly becoming popular. It plays a key role in improving transit ridership, community livability, multi-modal transportation planning efforts, environmental sustainability and traffic congestion. However, conduits like major bridges and tunnels, where multiple modes of transportation funnel to cross the bridge, are a safety and connectivity concern when protected bike/ped path are non-existent. On the same lines, this presentation intends to tell the story behind the recent addition of protected bike/ped paths in the United States on Richmond-San Rafael (R-SR) Bridge in California and Discovery Bridge in Missouri. The presentation focuses on various aspects of the projects including but not limited to advocacy efforts, partnerships, customer-oriented innovative solution, funding hurdles and fluctuating public-support for bike/ped paths.
