EFFECTIVE TREATMENTS OF OVER AND UNDERCROSSINGS FOR USE BY BICYCLISTS, PEDESTRIANS, AND THE HANDICAPPED. LITERATURE REVIEW

One of the purposes of this literature review is to provide basic resource data for the FHWA study "Effective Treatments of Over and Undercrossings for Use by Bicyclists, Pedestrians and the Handicapped." A parallel objective is to provide resource information for readers interested in various aspects of the study topic. The literature review represents an analysis of (a) relevant literature in readily available published form and (b) recent experience in the planning, design, and construction of crossing facilities and treatments to serve the non-motorized travelers. In general it was found there was very little literature dealing directly with the subject matter and that for the most part crossings have been treated as special situations in planning for non-motorized travel. Thus, most references consist of sections of reports or papers written for other purposes which incidentally included material relevant to this study. However, the discerning planner and designer can benefit greatly from what findings and experiences have been reported to date. In addition, the Annotated Bibliography presented in the Appendix constitutes a logical starting point for those seeking information in such areas as: non-motorized traveller behavior and needs, typical crossing situations, crossing hazards and impediments, needs assessment practice, design standards, structural treatments, non-structural solutions and selected case histories.
