The speed at which drivers operate their vehicles has a direct impact on the character of communities and the comfort and safety of all road users. In order to create more livable communities, designers must have a true understanding of speed relationships and how to effectively attain desired speeds.There are many definitions of speed and speed relationships. The AASHTO Green Book defines design speed as "a selected speed used to determine the various geometric design features of the roadway." FHWA recently introduced the concept of "inferred design speed" which is the maximum speed for which all critical design-speed-related criteria are met at a particular location. More recently, engineers and planners have introduced the concept of “target speed”, which is the highest speed at which vehicles should desirably operate on a roadway in a specific context, consistent with the context and multimodal activity, to provide both mobility for motor vehicles and a safe environment for people walking, bicycling, and riding transit. The ability to accurately predict speeds on all road and street types of differing designs remains a challenge. Similarly, there is no reliable guidance on how to attain specific operating speed characteristics and speed relationships during the geometric design process. This webinar will help to address those relationships and discuss the latest research and practice guidance in the application of roadway speed relationships.

This webinar will present an overview of the Alliance for Biking & Walking’s Bicycling & Walking in the United States: 2016 Benchmarking Report. The Benchmarking Report has tracked the rise in active transportation over the past decade, and includes a greater number of urban areas in its 2016 edition. The webinar will explore some of the changes to the 2016 Benchmarking Report from the 2014 publication, and will help attendees interested in understanding how to gather and interpret data to measure trends in biking and walking. It will also lay out some of the principal health benefits associated with the rise in active transportation, and through a series of case studies and complementary resources, will inform attendees on how to take the information contained within the report and apply the lessons to their own communities. Click here to download the 2016 Alliance for Biking and Walking Benchmarking Report
