The Intersections Scoping Study involves alternatives analysis for twelve (12) at-grade roadway crossings with the Burlington Bike Path. These crossings are being examined for potential improvements to enhance user safety and wayfinding. The findings from this study will be presented in a Scoping Report with short and long term crossing improvements. Short term improvements will be implemented as soon as possible after the completion of the study whereas alignment and larger scale solutions will be recommended for incorporation in the Rehabilitation Project.
Project ObjectiveThe objective of this project is to increase user safety and wayfinding at the crossings along the Burlington Bike Path.
DocumentsYield Sign Analysis
At the City’s request VHB analyzed ten intersections to determine whether a yield sign may be appropriate on the path rather than a stop sign as currently exists in the locations today. Using sight distance triangles and typical cyclist speeds on the path it was determined that only a couple locations may be feasible for yield signs on the path. It is still undetermined whether or not this will be recommended as this will be further evaluated under the Bike Path Rehabilitation Project. The memorandum and PowerPoint presentation below describe this analysis in more detail.
