Communities across the country are working to integrate the needs of
pedestrians into transportation decisionmaking. As agencies shift toward
adopting roadway design practices and safety countermeasures that enhance
the pedestrian experience, attention should also be given to the mobility
and accessibility needs of pedestrians of all ages and abilities. In
particular, pedestrians who are blind or have low vision have different
needs to be considered when deploying safety countermeasures. In this
two-part webinar series, we will showcase strategies that can be used to
enhance accessibility at crossing locations and along separated bicycle
lanes at sidewalk level. Our panelists will share their research and the
unique perspective of pedestrians who are not always considered when making
transportation decisions. Following their presentations, panelists will
respond to questions from attendees.

Panelists include: Elizabeth Hilton (Federal Highway Administration), Janet
Barlow (Accessible Design for the Blind), Dr. Beezy Bentzen (Accessible
Design for the Blind), Dr. Robert Wall Emerson (Western Michigan
University), and Donna Smith (Sound Transit).

This Federal Highway Administration's (FHWA) Office of Safety webinar will
be delivered by VHB and the UNC Highway Safety Research Center through a
contract to provide training and technical assistance to the
FHWA-designated Pedestrian and Bicycle Safety Focus States and Cities.
