1 Fine Tuning Boulders transportation system Presented by: Marni Ratzel GO Boulder/ city of boulder making infrastructure work for biking and Walking

2 Biking trips in Boulder

3 About Boulder 101,500 people 25 square miles County seat Home of CU-Boulder serving 29,000 students Gateway community to the Rocky Mountains 101,500 people 25 square miles County seat Home of CU-Boulder serving 29,000 students Gateway community to the Rocky Mountains

4 Pearl Street Pedestrian Mall

5 Boulders Greenway System a series of corridors along Boulder Creek and six of its tributaries

6 Greenway paths Bear Creek Path Boulder Creek Path

7 On-Street bike facilities

8 Multi-use Side Path

9 Biking System Underpasses 67 built 55 more proposed Multi-use path miles 105 built 65 more proposed Underpasses 67 built 55 more proposed Multi-use path miles 105 built 65 more proposed

10 Biking System On-street lanes miles* 192 built 110 more proposed *Includes bike shoulders 95% of arterial streets have bike facilities Bike racks on all buses On-street lanes miles* 192 built 110 more proposed *Includes bike shoulders 95% of arterial streets have bike facilities Bike racks on all buses

11 Three Projects Making Connections 1.Enhanced Pedestrian Crossings 2.Multi-use path crossings 3.On-street bike facility improvements 1.Enhanced Pedestrian Crossings 2.Multi-use path crossings 3.On-street bike facility improvements

12 Enhanced Pedestrian Crossings State Law - Yield to Pedestrians signing Pedestrian Actuated Flashing Beacons at Crosswalks Raised Crossings at right turn by-pass islands State Law - Yield to Pedestrians signing Pedestrian Actuated Flashing Beacons at Crosswalks Raised Crossings at right turn by-pass islands Enhanced pedestrian crossings

13 State Law Yield To Pedestrian Signing Enhanced pedestrian crossings

14 Flashing Beacon Warning Signs Enhanced pedestrian crossings

15 Raised Crossing at Right Turn By-Pass Island Enhanced pedestrian crossings

16 140 Pedestrians in 3 hours. Volume = 14,000 vpd. Original Compliance - 34% New Compliance - 65% No Significant accident trends Arapahoe Avenue and 13th Street State Law - Yield to Pedestrians signage Enhanced pedestrian crossings

17 Walnut Avenue and 9th Street State Law - Yield to Pedestrians signage 190 Pedestrians in 3 hours. Volume = 10,000 vpd. Original Compliance - 54% New Compliance - 93% Fewer X-walk accidents after pedestrian treatment Enhanced pedestrian crossings

18 Canyon Boulevard & 11th Street Ped-actuated flashing beacons with in-pavement lighting 460 Pedestrians in 3 hours. Volume = 20,000 vpd. Original Compliance - 38% New Compliance - 76% Fewer X-walk Accidents after pedestrian treatment

19 Pearl Street & 29th Street Ped-actuated flashing beacons (No in-pavement lighting) 70 Pedestrians in 3 hours. Volume = 22,000 vpd. Original Compliance - 26% New Compliance - 54% No significant accident trends Enhanced pedestrian crossings

20 500 Pedestrians in 3 hours. Volume = 35,000 vpd. Original Compliance - 16% New Compliance - 70% MORE X-walk accidents after pedestrian treatment Broadway & Pleasant Avenue Pedestrian-actuated flashing beacons Enhanced pedestrian crossings

21 Foothills Parkway off-ramp to Table Mesa Raised Crossing at right turn by-pass island 110 Pedestrians in 3 hours. Volume = 6,000 vpd (right turning traffic only). Original Compliance - 69% New Compliance - 92% Accident Trends? Enhanced pedestrian crossings

22 ADOPTED GUIDELINES Enhanced pedestrian crossings

23 Standard Crosswalk Treatment is State Law Yield to pedestrians Sign Enhanced pedestrian crossings

24 Pedestrian Crossing Thresholds Enhanced pedestrian crossings 20 in one hour 18 over 2 hours 15 over any three hours Young, elderly, and disabled pedestrians count 2x toward thresholds

25 Enhanced pedestrian crossings All Roadway Multi-use path crossings of Roadways are Marked

26 Enhanced pedestrian crossings Bike Actuated Flashing Beacon Sign

27 Multi-Use Path Crossings

28 South Broadway Bikeway Study Multi-use path crossings

29 Outbound Driveway Crossing Multi-use path crossings BeforeAfter

30 Inbound Right Turn into Driveway Crossing Multi-use path crossings BeforeAfter

31 Demonstration: Driveway Crossing Multi-use path crossings

32 Multi-Use path Crossings Typical treatments for: Unsignalized Intersections Signalized intersections Signalized intersectons with Right turn By- pass islands Driveways Typical treatments for: Unsignalized Intersections Signalized intersections Signalized intersectons with Right turn By- pass islands Driveways

33 Typical Unsignalized intersection Multi-use path crossings

34 Typical Signalized intersection Multi-use path crossings

35 Typical Signalized intersection with Right Turn By-Pass Island Multi-use path crossings

36 Raised Crossing at Right Turn By Pass Intersection

37 Typical Driveway Crossing Multi-use path crossings

38 On-Street Bicycle Lane improvements

39 Bikeway Corridor Signing Bikeway Corridor Sign Plans System Identification Corridor Naming Facility Type Directional arrow Bikeway Corridor Sign Plans System Identification Corridor Naming Facility Type Directional arrow
