LHTAC and FHWA are Hosting a Bike and Pedestrian Workshop in May
The Local Highway Technical Assistance Council (LHTAC) received incentive funding to provide a demonstration workshop on Safe Transportation for Every Pedestrian(STEP). The two day workshop will include class instruction using FHWA experts and an onsite observation.
Cost of attending this workshop will be funded through the grant. The focus audience for the workshop is local, regional and state public agencies working on bike and pedestrian planning and projects, including Safe Routes to School, in Idaho communities.
The goal of this workshop is to enable Local Highway Jurisdictions to understand principles of design for both pedestrian and bicycle safety and to develop an understanding of how cost-effective countermeasures with known safety benefits can help reduce pedestrian and bicycle fatalities.
This is an extension of the STEP course offered last September. It will expand on some of the pedestrian elements and also include a bicycle portion.
More information on this event will be available in the next few months. We plan to have registration begin in March. For now, please mark your calendar to save the dates to attend this workshop (May 15 & 16th).
