Bicycle Transportation: Bicycle Path Planning and Design, Jun 24-26

June 26, 2014 - 11:00pm
The third in a series on the planning and design of both on-road and off-road bicycle facilities, this course will focus on the fundamental background knowledge necessary to design and implement off-street shared-use bicycle paths. Case studies will be presented. Sample spatial design problems, use conflicts, and alternative solutions will be illustrated. Federal and State laws and policies affecting pathway design will be reviewed including: American Association of State Highway and Transportation Officials (AASHTO) Guide for the Development of Bicycle Facilities; the California Highway Design Manual Chapter 1000; and the American With Disabilities Act (ADA), including new Department of Justice rulings on the use of power-driven mobility devices.

Multimodal Level-of-Service Analysis, Jun 18-19

June 19, 2014 - 10:00pm
Recent legislation, as well as public sentiment, has made it imperative that transportation professionals better understand how to analyze complete streets that serve all users. This new online course provides the basics and practical applications of analysis procedures for determining level of service for pedestrians, bicyclists, bus transit users, and auto users. It emphasizes the methods that have been developed in the recently released Highway Capacity Manual update (HCM 2010), although other methods will be discussed. This course focuses on urban/suburban streets (non-freeways). Applications of analyses include improving transportation impact studies, environmental impact reports and project mitigation, new development design standards, and setting level of significance guidelines as part of the CEQA review process. Attendees will also become familiar with:

- cross-modal impacts (when capacity or physical characteristics of one mode are changed and thereby affect another mode using the street)
- labor saving shortcuts for data collection (because the methodology can be very "data hungry")

This course is a combination of instructor presentations and a brief overnight homework exercise to apply the techniques in the real-world. The material complements TE-05 (Traffic Operations and Highway Capacity Analysis) and students are encouraged to take both classes, although each can be taken as a stand-alone class.

Complete Streets Planning and Design, Jun 10-11

June 11, 2014 - 10:00pm
Complete Streets are planned, designed, operated, and maintained to provide safe and comfortable travel for all users of all ages. Complete Streets provide for all modes of transportation, including pedestrians, bicyclists, transit vehicles, and motorists, as well as allow for emergency response, road maintenance, and goods movement. This course covers the planning and design of Complete Streets, including the history of Complete Streets; the policy environment for Complete Streets, particularly in the California legislative environment; how to integrate Complete Streets with the urban planning process; and how to design streets, intersections, crossings, and interchanges consistent with the Complete Streets approach.

NSF CAREER Award Workshop, Jun 11

June 11, 2014 - 10:00pm
The Berkeley Research Development Office is holding a workshop on the 2014 NSF CAREER Award program on June 11. This workshop is open to tenure-track assistant professors and postdocs who will be transitioning into tenure-track positions this year. The CAREER Award program requires an integration of research and education activities beyond the scope of a regular NSF grant, so this workshop series will guide you through the requirements and provide concrete suggestions on how to write the proposal. The workshop will include a panel discussion with three current CAREER Awardees. Lunch will be provided. Registration is required at http://vcresearch.berkeley.edu/2014-nsf-career-award-workshop
