This toolbox on designing for all users is from a set of conference proceedings on Intersection Safety: Achieving Solutions Through Partnerships. The authors of this chapter to present design and safety information pertaining to the non-vehicle users of intersections, namely pedestrians, bicyclists, and other nontraditional users. The chapter focuses on users with special needs and some of the newer travel modes. After a section of definitions and characteristics of all users, the chapter covers general intersection safety for all users, intersection design considerations, Federal accessibility requirements, public rights-of-way guidelines, pedestrian facilities (sidewalks and ramps, curb ramps, marked and unmarked crossings, median/refuge islands, curb extensions), innovative traffic control devices, transit access, bike lanes, bike trails and paths (shared use), accommodating nontraditional modes, regulatory signs, warning signs, guide signs, markings for all users, traffic calming, pedestrians at signalized intersections, traffic signal warrants, signal timing, signal displays, signal phasing, accessible pedestrian signals (APS), bicycle facilities at signalized intersections, unsignalized intersections, pedestrian crossing facilities (controlled and uncontrolled), school zones, flag crossings, bicycle lanes, trail and path crossings, and accommodating all users at unsignalized intersections. Full-color photographs of many of the intersections and devices are included.
