Guidance to Improve Pedestrian and Bicyclist Safety at Intersections

This report provides a process for selecting intersection designs and operational treatments that provide safety benefits for pedestrians and bicyclists, and the most appropriate situation for their application. The report draws from and builds on the strengths of key countermeasures and safety resources, tying these together in a systematic process for transportation practitioners to use to improve bicycle and pedestrian safety at intersections. The guide provides a step-by-step process for selecting intersection safety treatments based on site conditions, effectiveness, level of public process, and their potential to reduce certain common pedestrian and bicycle crash types. The appendix is a Countermeasure Glossary documenting 34 pedestrian and bicycle intersection safety countermeasures with two-page listings of key information for each.
