Safety Evaluation of On-Street Bicycle Facility Design Features

The objective of this research is to provide practitioners at state departments of transportation and other transportation agencies with data-driven guidelines for selecting context-appropriate design features for safety improvements to existing separated and non-separated on-street bicycle facilities and for the planning of new facilities. The guidelines will be based on an up-to-date, quantitative analysis of crash patterns as well as an evaluation of the roadway characteristics, land use patterns, and human factors that increase conflicts and the risk and severity of midblock crashes that involve bicyclists.
