KAI's Transportation Education Series provides interactive presentation sessions intended to promote professional development and advancements in transportation engineering and planning.
As part of Kittelson & Associates’ ongoing Transportation Education Series (TES), we are excited to have Dr. Stephanie Van Dyke, the Medical Director of the Wellness Center at Sky Lakes Medical Center in Klamath Falls, Oregon and our own Karla Kingsley present the latest approaches in addressing public health issues through specific active transportation projects with a priority on pedestrian and bikeway treatments from both a safety and public health perspective. The presentation will provide an overview of NCHRP Report 803, Pedestrian and Bicycle Transportation along Existing Roads: ActiveTrans Priority Tool and the recently published FHWA Separated Bike Lane Planning and Design Guide. The second part of the presentation will be a case study of how Sky Lakes Medical Center has utilized a recent grant by the Cambia Health Foundation to examine and map public health trends by neighborhood within the greater Klamath Falls Basin. Using findings from the GIS analysis, a feasibility study was commissioned and the first separated bikeway facility is being implemented in the City of Klamath Falls.
This presentation is tailored towards active transportation professionals, health care providers, economic and community development staff, planners, land use planners, policymakers, city managers, designers, and health oriented foundations. The presentation will be followed by an opportunity for questions and an interactive discussion.
