Meet Vancouver’s Next Protected Intersections: Burrard, Pacific, Quebec, 1st, and more (Alex Liaw)  This presentation begins with a discussion of Burrard Street and Cornwall Avenue in Vancouver, North America's first fully protected intersection for cycling. The next generation of protected intersections in Vancouver, including Burrard/Pacific and Quebec/1st, are under construction, while additional future designs through the Viaduct replacement road network and development projects will be joining them quickly. Through coordination with Vancouver's Planning department, protected bike lanes and protected intersections are beginning to be incorporated in major neighbourhood planning exercises, such as the new Northeast False Creek community or the redevelopment of dozens of blocks of arterial street into mixed-use mid-rise along the Cambie Corridor, each supported by a chain of protected intersections. The session also explores differences between each design, implementations in the Netherlands, concepts from the CROW Design Manual for Bicycle Traffic, and those concepts as popularized in North America by Nick Falbo. Many of these intersections will ultimately form part of a corridor of protected bike lanes and intersections along the south edge of downtown Vancouver, providing emerging network benefits. 

Better Bikeways: building raised bikeways elements (Craig Toocheck): Designers are transforming bikeways using a palette of strategically positioned raised elements and meeting transit and pedestrian safety needs at the same time. Learn about bikeway elements like protected intersections, transit boarding islands, and raised bike lanes.
