Topic Winter Maintenance for Multi-Modal Transportation Options
Sponsor: APWA STL
Historically, winter maintenance in transportation has focused on the fastest, most efficient way to provide safe roads to the driving public. As gas prices rise and attitudes change, communities across North America are looking to expand transportation options for their citizens. This has led to an increase in multi-modal transportation with some of the most popular being initiatives for bikes and pedestrians. Though these are great for the community, they present significant challenges for Winter Maintenance professionals. How a jurisdiction handles snow removal from sidewalks and paved shared-use paths is also an ADA issue.
This session will focus on winter maintenance operations for non-motorized transportation routes such as on-street bike lanes, shared –use paths, parking lots and pedestrian bridges. Attention will also be given to how to minimize the impact of street operations on multi-modal routes. The final section will address the strategies and challenges in enhancing cooperation within a community to improve winter maintenance overall.
Every community that receives snow needs to evaluate their winter maintenance operations for their non-driving public. Join us to see if the experience of these individuals can help you improve operations in your agency.
After viewing this program, participants will be better able to:
1. Determine some options for clearing on-street bike lanes
2. Evaluate how winter maintenance affects my agency in regards to ADA compliance
3. Describe my role in dealing with these growing trends in multi-modal transportation.
