Link roundup — friends and partners edition
April 29, 2011/
With Bike Month, AASHTO, and rescissions shenanigans, it’s a busy time here at the League. But our friends have been busy, too. Here’s some of what they’ve been up to:
- So, what is “Livability,” and what does it have to do with the Federal Highway Administration? The Role of FHWA Programs in Livability answers that question.
- Inspired by Bicycle Friendly Communities, PBIC announces the first Walk Friendly Communities.
- The NACTO design guide is now available in printable PDF form.
- Does your state have a good Complete Streets policy? The National Complete Street Coalition breaks it down.
- In 1999, Professor Pucher asked if North America was on the verge of a bicycling renaissance. Twelve years later, Pucher, Buehler and Seinen reassess. The report includes several maps of commuter levels within US cities, like this one of Washington, DC:
- The Federal Highway Administration (FHWA) compiled recent research on pedestrian and bicycle safety engineering treatments, including sharrows.
- Update: “A different Darren” is right (see comment). It’s not too late to mention that the FHWA has announced interim approval of the use of green bike lanes.
Happy Bike Month, everybody!
