Bicycle & Pedestrian-Friendly Site Design



Where: Room 180, Native American Student & Community Center, PSU
Instructor: Lynn Weigand, Ph.D
Topic: Bicycle & Pedestrian-Friendly Site Design
Summary: Current site design practice typically assumes that users will arrive by car, often creating hostile conditions for those arriving on foot or by bicycle. This 1-day Initiative for Bicycle and Pedestrian Innovation (IBPI) course teaches participants how to apply human factors in rethinking and redesigning commercial, civic, office, and light industrial sites so are attractive, safe and convenient for pedestrians and bicyclists. The course will include opportunities for interaction and application of concepts in small group exercises.

Topics will include:

  • Access Management
  • Building orientation
  • Parking lot design
  • Pedestrian access
  • Bicycle access and bicycle parking
  • Building design – exterior and interior
