White Paper: Advisory Bike Lanes in North America
Advisory bike lanes are an emerging treatment in the US and Canada. The FHWA report Small Town and Rural Multimodal Networks includes guidance on the design of “advisory shoulders”; this work builds upon that guidance. Our upcoming white paper includes design guidelines and implementation recommendations, while also stating the need for continued experimentation with the facility. To support this whitepaper, the authors conducted a survey of twelve advisory bike lane installations in North America.
