We are excited to participate in the National Association of City Transportation Officials (NACTO) Designing Cities 2023 conference from May 15-18 in Denver, Colorado. The conference brings together 900 officials, planners, and practitioners to advance the state of transportation in cities. If you’re attending, find Alta’s Derek Abe and Joe Gilpin there! Derek and Joe are working at the intersection of sustainability, mobility innovation, and community needs to create more connected communities through Urban Networks.

Workshop: Don’t Give Up At The Intersection

Monday, May 15 | 9:00 am – 12:30 pm MDT

Don’t think you have room for a protected intersection? Not sure how to give bikes priority over turning cars? This practical training combines the power of time (signals) and space (geometric solutions) for tricky bikeway intersections. Learn how to get people on bikes and micromobility devices safely through an intersection using innovative best practices and easy-to-implement standards-based alternatives.

In this hands-on workshop, participants will engage with leading practitioners who specialize in bike intersection design, work with peers to problem-solving challenging intersections, and apply their new skills to streets like theirs. So, sharpen your pencils and pull out your calculators for a hands-on design experience, applying techniques such as checking a turn radius or calculating a signal phase, and roll away with the skills to make your city’s bikeway intersections safe and inviting for people of all ages and abilities.

Alta Speakers: Derek Abe and Joe Gilpin
