VTBIKEPEDPOLICY-L: The Vermont Bicycle and Pedestrian Policy Discussion List
Note: A certificate will be available on request which provides 5 hours of training/education credit for engineers or other professionals who have licenses which require ongoing training to retain licensing.
(This message replaces one attempted yesterday and contains a less than megabyte handout by reducing the photo size and its making the handout over 9 megabytes.)
Attached please find the updated (with new photo by Lee Krohn) handout inviting you to the Embrace the Roundabout Workshop with presenter Mark T. Johnson, PE., principal of MTJ Engineering, Madison, WI.
Note the roundabout benefits--reduced delay for all, about 90% cut in fatal crashes (all modes in single laners!), slashes about a third of all pollutants and gas use at intersections, increases land use densities, and beautifies!
Designed for engineering, policy and community leaders alike, topics range from the ABCs of roundabouts to mini-roundabouts and a case analysis of a Burlington intersection.
Please encourage anyone from regional planning staff and Transportation Advisory Committee (TAC) members to town engineers and elected officials to attend. Note the senior and student discount.
Steering Committee Member, Neighborhood Planning Assembly 2/3
PS The handout minus the photo is posted on my blog.
