MassDOT Separated Bike Lane Planning and Design Guide
The Massachusetts Department of Transportation wanted the best possible guidance for designing and building separated bike lanes and turned to Toole Design for help. We drew on research and best practices from the United States and around the world to deliver a one-of-a-kind, illustrated manual that provides unparalleled detail on topics such as protected intersections, floating bus stops, and considerations for one-way versus two-way operation. The Separated Bike Lane Planning and Design Guide includes 3-dimensional graphics that are easy for both engineers and the public to understand and use. Frequently cited as the gold standard in bikeway design guidance, the MassDOT guide is ushering in a new generation of national, state and local design manuals.
MassDOT has made the complete Guide available on their website.
