Late notice but if you're available please join Green Action Centre and Bike Winnipeg to watch the following APBP and Green Lane Project webinar* tomorrow (Wed) afternoon* in the EcoCentre http://greenactioncentre.ca/content/ecocentre-directions-and-travel-options/ boardroom.
With protected bike lanes in Winnipeg on Pembina and Assiniboine Ave, and construction underway for the parking protected bike lane on Sherbrook, it's a timely topic.
If you are unable to attend but still want to hear either of these free recorded webinars, here's the link: Intersections and Protected Bike Lanes / http://www.apbp.org/?page=PBL_webinarsAccessibility and Protected Bike Lanes http://www.apbp.org/?page=PBL_webinars

*Intersections and Protected Bike Lanes* *APBP recorded webinar | Wed, Aug. 27th, 2014 | 2:00-3:00 pm*
- Learn about current practice for designing protected bike lanes at intersections - Consider aspects of Dutch cycle track design at intersections that are transferable to the North American context - Review elements of Dutch treatments implemented in U.S. cities
*Description*: One of the greatest challenges to designing a protected bike lane is getting the lane through an intersection. This webinar focuses on the most forward-looking work related to protected bike lanes at intersections, as well as lessons that can be learned from Dutch design.
Presenters will discuss geometric techniques for managing speed and mitigating right turn issues and best practices for signal phasing and mixing zones. Going beyond current practice, we ask “What do next generation protected bike lanes at intersections look like?” and discuss how North American intersections designs can look and function more like their Dutch counterparts. The session includes examples of Dutch-style elements and treatments already installed in the U.S.
