Train transportation engineers and planners how to accommodate bicycling in their projects.

Strategy 5.4.2 Details

Chapter 5Education: Education is a key component to achieving the Bike 2015 Plan's goals to increase the number of trips by bicycle and improve the safety of the bicycling environment. Many people think that bicycling in Chicago is dangerous. This concern keeps people from bicycling more, or at all. A key way to address this concern is through education, particularly through the six objectives identified in this chapter.
Objective 4Train city staff and consultants to implement the Bike 2015 Plan.

Strategy 2

Train transportation engineers and planners how to accommodate bicycling in their projects.

Training will help ensure routine accommodation of bicycling in transportation projects. Training will also help ensure that bicycle facilities are constructed to appropriate standards, including AASHTO's Guide for the Development of Bicycle Facilities and the proposed Bikeway Design Manual. Provide continuing education credits, where possible. Partner with the Illinois Department of Transportation, Cook County Highway Department, Chicago Area Transportation Study, and Chicagoland Bicycle Federation.

Peformance MeasureStage a bicycle planning and design workshop every two years, cooperatively with other agencies, beginning no later than 2007.
