Taking Steps Toward Measuring the Pedestrian Environment

This webinar will discuss quantitatively measuring the pedestrian environment with case studies from Fort Worth, Oregon, and Montgomery County, MD. We'll also discuss how pedestrian infrastructure often gets pushed around to accommodate better signal timing and reduce vehicle delay. We'll explore a number of ways the City of Toronto evaluates pedestrian infrastructure and look at the case study of a missing crosswalk link at a major downtown intersection.

Presented by: Association of Pedestrian & Bicycle Professionals (APBP)
