Synthesis of National Best Practices on Pedestrian and Bicycle Design, Guidance, and Technology Innovations
Project Number: SPR-1708

In order to accelerate progress towards the state’s Towards Zero Death vision, MDOT sponsored this research effort, Synthesis of National Best Practices on Pedestrian and Bicycle Design, Guidance, and Technology Innovations (OR19-072). The primary goal of this project was to assess national best practices related to pedestrian and bicyclist planning and design, culminating in the development of recommendations to allow MDOT to explicitly consider the needs of such non-motorized users. A series of tasks were conducted towards this end by the MSU research team in consultation with the MDOT panel, including a review of current practices, the collection of information from Michigan’s stakeholders, the identification of updates to MDOT planning and design materials, and the development of materials to promote pedestrian and bicycle innovations. This report summarizes these efforts as a comprehensive reference for implementing the research and recommendations developed as a part of the project.
