Framework for Bikeway Designation on Rural Roads
Date: January 31, 2019
Time: 1:00 pm to 2:30 pm ET

This webinar will provide an overview of the development and content of the Framework for Bikeway Designation on Rural Roads. This document was developed as a resource for road owners that are considering bikeway designation on one of their roads. The Framework addresses liability and safety concerns that road owners frequently face when considering roads that are shared by motor vehicles and people on bicycles. While Oregon’s Scenic Bikeway program was the catalyst for this research, shared use on rural roads is an issue across the United States, and the Framework is intended for use by any road owner considering bikeway designation. The development of the document was guided by a technical advisory committee with representatives from a state DOT, county road officials, cycling tourism groups, the Oregon Scenic Bikeway Program, the US Forest Service, and the Federal Highway Administration. It is anticipated the Framework document will be finalized and available for use in March 2019
