ActiveTrans Priority Tool: A Model Methodology for Prioritizing Pedestrian and Bicycle Improvements on Existing Roads

December 4, 2014

While procedures for prioritizing motor vehicle improvements along existing roads are well-established, pedestrian and bicycle prioritization methods are less common. The current lack of guidance in this area can be a barrier to more agencies effectively prioritizing and implementing pedestrian and bicycle projects. To address this deficit, the National Cooperative Highway Research Program (NCHRP) established Project 07-17 to develop a model methodology transportation agencies can use to evaluate and prioritize pedestrian and bicycle improvements on existing roadways. The result of this research is the ActiveTrans Priority Tool.

This webinar will provide an overview of the ActiveTrans Priority Tool (APT) which is intended to help practitioners in local, regional, and state agencies establish a step-by-step prioritization process that is flexible, transparent, and incorporates agency/community values. Attendees will learn about the key features of the APT, including a programmed spreadsheet that is designed to help practitioners implement the APT in a time-efficient manner.

Presenters include:

  • Jim Elliott, Toole Design Group
  • Michael Hintze, Toole Design Group
  • Robert Schneider, University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee
