(OVER FOR PROCEDURE SUMMARY) STAFF REPORT �2 PLANNING COMMISSION �LIFOR�l� DATE: August 26, 2014 TO: Planning Commission SUBJECT: PUBLIC HEARING: PLPA-2014-0017 Dublin Bicycle and Pedestrian Master Plan and associated amendments to the Dublin General Plan, Eastern Dublin Specific Plan, Dublin Village Historic Area Specific Plan, Downtown Dublin Specific Plan and Dublin Zoning Ordinance Report Prepared by, Mamie R. Delgado, Senior Planner and Ferd Del Rosario, Senior Civil Engineer EXECUTIVE SUMMARY: The City of Dublin has prepared the Dublin Bicycle and Pedestrian Master Plan which combines the update to the Bikeways Master Plan (2007) with the City's first Pedestrian Plan into a comprehensive document that provides policies, network plans, prioritized project lists, support programs and best practice design guidelines for bicycling and walking in Dublin. Associated amendments to the Dublin General Plan, Eastern Dublin Specific Plan, Dublin Village Historic Area Specific Plan, Downtown Dublin Specific Plan and Dublin Zoning Ordinance are proposed to maintain consistency with the Dublin Bicycle and Pedestrian Master Plan. The Planning Commission is being asked to review the amendments, and associated environmental document, and make a recommendation to the City Council. RECOMMENDATION: Staff recommends that the Planning Commission: 1) Receive Staff presentation; 2) Open the public hearing; 3) Take testimony from the public; 4) Close the public hearing and deliberate; 5) Adopt a Resolution recommending City Council adoption of a Negative Declaration for the City of Dublin Bicycle and Pedestrian Master Plan and amendments to the Dublin General Plan, Eastern Dublin Specific Plan, Dublin Village Historic Area Specific Plan, Downtown Dublin Specific Plan and Dublin Zoning Ordinance; and 6) Adopt a Resolution recommending City Council approval of amendments to the Dublin General Plan, Eastern Dublin Specific Plan, Dublin Village Historic Area Specific Plan, Downtown Dublin Specific Plan and Dublin Zoning Ordinance. Submitted By Pevlev d By Senior Planner Assistant Community Development Director COPIES TO: File Q ITEM NO.: U Page 1 of 13 DESCRIPTION: Background The Bikeways Master Plan was originally developed in 2007 to help the City implement a bikeway system that could provide a viable transportation alternative to the automobile, improve safety for bicyclists and provide residents with access to open space, trails and other recreational amenities. For Fiscal Year 2012-13, the City Council approved a project to update the 2007 Dublin Bikeways Master Plan and to develop the City's first Pedestrian Master Plan. The Dublin Bicycle and Pedestrian Master Plan (Attachment 1) provides an updated bicycle and pedestrian capital improvement project list as well as guidance on the implementation of high priority bicycle and pedestrian projects citywide. The firm of Fehr & Peers was hired to assist Staff with the development of the Bicycle and Pedestrian Master Plan. In order to receive public input on the combined Bicycle and Pedestrian Master Plan, the City hosted two public workshops on October 1, 2012 and February 28, 2013, and a community meeting on July 31, 2013. City Staff also attended meetings with the Dublin Chamber of Commerce over the course of the Plan process. The two public workshops focused on citywide bicycle and pedestrian issues, and the remaining meetings focused on connectivity to and within Downtown Dublin. In October 2013, City Staff presented the Downtown Connectivity project to City Council, which provided an additional opportunity for public comment. Summary of the Bicycle and Pedestrian Master Plan The Dublin Bicycle and Pedestrian Master Plan combine an update of the 2007 Dublin Bikeways Master Plan with adoption of the City's first Pedestrian Plan. The Plan is a comprehensive document that provides policies, network plans, prioritized project lists, support programs, and best practice design guidelines for bicycling and walking in Dublin. In addition to enhancing conditions through site-specific improvements, the document seeks to institutionalize the accommodation of the distinct needs of bicyclists and pedestrians as roadways are upgraded and constructed in accordance with recently adopted policy documents, such as the City of Dublin Complete Streets Policy (2012) and the Downtown Dublin Specific Plan (2010). Several noteworthy updates have been made in this Plan from the 2007 Bikeways Master Plan, including: • Existing Walking Conditions and Proposed Pedestrian Improvements, with a baseline inventory and recommended projects within Downtown Dublin (see Attachment 1, Chapters 3 and 5); • Programs, Policies, and Practices Assessment (see Attachment 1, Chapter 4); • Updated Bicycle Network Classifications, featuring buffered bicycle lanes, and green pavement (see Attachment 1, Chapter 5); • Updated Bicycle and Pedestrian Design Guidelines: Bicycle and Pedestrian Design Guidelines have been developed as a separate, stand-alone document (Attachment 2) to guide the design and installation of bicycle and pedestrian facilities Citywide. The Guidelines are based on best practice documents, such as the National Association of City Transportation Officials (NACTO) Urban Bikeway Design Guide and the American 2of13 Association of State Highway and Transportation Officials (AASHTO) Guide for the Design of Bicycle Facilities, and will be updated regularly by the City of Dublin Public Works Department to remain consistent with best practices in bicycle and pedestrian planning and design; • Grant-Ready Concept Drawings and Fact Sheets for three bicycle and pedestrian priority projects (see Attachment 1, Chapter 6); and • Performance Measures for monitoring investments in walking and bicycling, such as establishing and updating baseline walking and bicycling counts (see Attachment 1, Chapter 8). Key sections and recommendations of the Dublin Bicycle and Pedestrian Master Plan are summarized in the sections below. Goals & Policies The Plan includes six goals to guide biking and walking Dublin: 1. Support bicycling and walking as practical, healthy, and convenient alternatives to automobile use in Dublin; 2. Implement a well-connected active transportation system to attract users of all ages and abilities; 3. Incorporate the needs and concerns of bicyclists and pedestrians in all transportation and development projects; 4. Support infrastructure investments with targeted bicycle and pedestrian education, encouragement, enforcement, and evaluation programs; 5. Maximize multi-modal connections in the transportation network; and 6. Improve bicycle and pedestrian safety Citywide. Programs Practices, and Policies Assessment The City's existing approaches to facilitating and enhancing bicycling and walking were reviewed with a benchmarking matrix that compares the City's efforts with national best practices, as well as local context highlighted in the City's Complete Streets Policy. The benchmarking analysis categorizes the City's programs, policies, and practices into three areas as follows: • Key Strengths: areas where the City of Dublin is exceeding national best practices • Enhancements: areas where the City is meeting best practices • Opportunities: areas where the City appears not to meet best practices Key strengths include the City's bicycle education and encouragement programs, newly adopted Complete Streets Policy, and inventory of bicycle infrastructure. Opportunities include 3of13 expanding the scope of those programs and inventories to address walking issues, collecting data regarding bicycling and walking, and adopting citywide standard guidelines for the design of bicycle and pedestrian facilities. Recommended Bicycling Network The recommended bicycle network includes: • Class I Bicycle Paths - Provides a completely separated right-of-way for the exclusive use of bicycles and pedestrian with cross-flow minimized. • Class IIA Bicycle Lanes - Provides a striped lane for dedicated one-way bike travel on a roadway. • Class IIB Buffered Bicycle Lanes - Provides a modified on-street bicycle lane with vehicle and/or parking-side striped buffer for additional comfort and safety on higher speed or volume roadways. • Class IIIA Bicycle Routes with Sharrows - Provides for shared-use travel with motor vehicle traffic. All proposed Class IIIA Bikeways would also have sharrows where needed, or "shared-lane markings", to designate bicyclist positioning within the travel lane. All of these treatments are supported under the Highway Design Manual (HDM), California Vehicle Code, and California Uniform Manual on Traffic Control Devices (CA UMTCD), and detailed design guidelines are provided in the Bicycle and Pedestrian Design Guidelines (see Attachment 2). New segments of Class IIIA Bicycle Routes are proposed on many local streets, connecting residential areas with key destinations such as regional trails, schools, and Downtown Dublin. The minimum standard for Class III Bicycle Routes is updated to require the striping of sharrows where needed. Sharrows are shared lane marking used to alert road users of the presence of bicyclists and to designate the preferred bicyclist positioning within the travel lane. Class 1113 Buffered Bicycle Lanes are proposed on roadways with existing wide bicycle lanes to offer increased separation between bicyclist and autos and clarify expectations. In total, over 35 miles of bikeways are proposed with over 14 miles of bikeways planned to be funded and built by private developers. The developer funded projects are estimated to cost $7,865,700 while the total cost of City initiated bikeway projects is estimated at $2,765,600 for a grand total of$10,631,300. - - - - - - - - Recommended Walking Network The pedestrian element of the Plan includes a comprehensive project list of potential improvements in Downtown Dublin that address the walkability goals that have been set forth in the Downtown Dublin Specific Plan and the City's Complete Streets Policy. The proposed projects include intersection improvements such as reduced crossing distances through median refuges and curb extensions; mid-block crosswalks; signal modifications to provide protected left-turn phasing; advanced stop bars to decrease auto encroachment on the crosswalk space; and directional ADA curb ramps to provide clear indications for the visually impaired and 4 of 13 convenient access for all users. The total cost of proposed pedestrian projects is $5,044,500, excluding the Amador Plaza Road and Village Parkway complete streets projects. Priority Pedestrian and Bicycle Protects Three priority projects were considered in this Plan, and concept drawings and grant-ready fact sheets were developed for each. The projects meet the needs of all users and operators including commercial, emergency response, and transit. The three projects are: • Amador Plaza Road Complete Street Project (Amador Valley Boulevard to St. Patrick Way/1-580 Ramps): Class II Bicycle Lanes, median refuges, mid-block textured crosswalks with bulb-outs, landscape enhancement, pedestrian lighting, and intersection improvements. • Village Parkway Complete Street Project (City Limit to Clark Avenue/Dublin Boulevard): Conversion of Class II Bicycle Lanes to Class IIB Buffered Bicycle Lanes, conversion of Class III Bicycle Route to Class IIA Bicycle Lanes, new Class IIA Bicycle Lanes south of Dublin Boulevard including a Class I Bicycle Path connection and bridge to the Alamo Canal Trail. • Downtown Connectivity Project (Regional Street, Amador Valley Boulevard, Village Parkway, Amador Plaza Road, St. Patrick Way, and Dublin Boulevard): Connect Downtown and West Dublin BART with dedicated bicycle facilities on routes other than Dublin Boulevard. Projects include Class IIA Bicycle Lanes on Regional Street, Class IIB Buffered Bicycle Lanes on Amador Valley Boulevard between San Ramon Road and Village Parkway, Class IIA Bicycle Lanes on Village Parkway/Clark Avenue between Amador Valley Boulevard and Dublin Boulevard, Class IIA Bicycle Lanes on Saint Patrick Way, Class I Path and Bicycle/Pedestrian Bridge between Clark Avenue and Alamo Canal Trail, and Class IIIA Bicycle Route with Sharrows where needed, on Dublin Boulevard between San Ramon Road and Alamo Canal Trail. Performance Measures In order to document the results or benefits of investment in walking and bicycling, performance goals are set in this Plan. The four performance measures are: 1. Increase total number of low-stress bicycle facilities (i.e. Class I Bike Paths) that support users of all ages (8-80) and abilities; 2. Enhance walkability of Downtown Dublin; 3. Enhance pedestrian and bicycle safety throughout Dublin, with a specific focus on higher collision rate location mitigation; and 4. Encourage an increase in active transportation mode share and trips. Implementation The Plan identifies the following implementation projects: 5of13 • Initiate for City Council consideration a Capital Improvement Project in Fiscal Year 2014- 15 to implement the Downtown Multi-Modal Improvement-Project for pedestrian and bicycles, including the following: 1) Incorporate the Regional Street Class IIA bicycle lanes from Amador Valley Boulevard to the southerly end of street; 2) Amador Valley Boulevard Class IIB buffered bicycle lanes from San Ramon Road to Village Parkway; 3) Installation of bicycle racks and bikeway guide signs in the Downtown area; and 4) Construct on Amador Plaza Road a mid-block crossing with enhanced crossing treatment such as Rectangular Rapid Flashing Beacon. • Incorporate Class IIA bicycle lanes on Village Parkway from Amador Valley Boulevard to Clark Avenue into the next Village Parkway pavement overlay, currently planned in FY 2014-15. • Incorporate Class IIB buffered bicycle lanes on Village Parkway between Amador Valley Boulevard and North City Limit line into the next Village Parkway slurry seal, currently planned for FY 2014-15. • Incorporate Class IIA bicycle lanes on St. Patrick Way between Amador Plaza Road and Golden Gate Drive. • Incorporate Class IIIA bicycle route with Sharrows treatment, including signage and striping, on Dublin Boulevard between San Ramon Road and the Alamo Canal Trail with One Bay Area Grant (OBAG) funding currently planned for FY 2015-16. • Incorporate the top priority projects included in this Plan in the update of the Downtown Dublin Traffic Impact Fee (planned for FY 2014-15) as per the nexus analysis. • Continue to fund the Bikeway Implementation Program education and encouragement efforts for 2014 using funds allocated from Measure B. • Continue Staff training for complete streets issues so that City Staff can champion projects and apply for competitive grant funding sources. • Opportunistically implement the other projects contained in this Plan. When opportunities arise to stripe or construct a project, the City should take advantage of that, even if the project is not a top tier priority project. • While the project lists are by location for reference, look for opportunities to group projects together by type (striping projects, safe routes to transit, etc.) where funding sources and implementation efficiency allow. • Consult the bicycle and pedestrian project lists whenever making improvements to the transportation network, specifically when overlays or other routine projects are completed. • Identify and incorporate bicycle and pedestrian improvements in private development projects as condition of development approvals. 6of13 Parks and Community Services Commission On August 18, 2014 Public Works staff presented the draft Bicycle and Pedestrian Master Plan to the Parks and Community Services Commission. Members of the Commission reviewed the Plan and asked questions on the types of bikeways, funding, and implementation of the Plan. A member of the public suggested having staff make a presentation on the status of the Plan to the Parks Commission every two years. ANALYSIS: General Plan, Specific Plan and Zoning Ordinance Amendments The City of Dublin General Plan and various Specific Plans contain policies regarding bikeways within the City. The Circulation and Scenic Highways Element of the General Plan contains Guiding Policies and Implementing Policies regarding bikeways (Section 5.5). The General Plan also includes Bicycle Circulation maps (Figures 5-3a & 5-3b) which identify the location of existing and proposed bicycle routes within the City of Dublin. Various Specific Plans also provide policies and maps showing the location of existing and proposed bicycle routes and support facilities within those specific plan areas. The proposed Dublin Bicycle and Pedestrian Master Plan provides updated policies as well as revised bicycle and pedestrian circulation routes and support facilities. The policies contained in the proposed Dublin Bicycle and Pedestrian Master Plan are required to be consistent with the General Plan and various Specific Plans. Therefore, amendments to the Dublin General Plan, Eastern Dublin Specific Plan, Dublin Village Historic Area Specific Plan and Downtown Dublin Specific Plan are proposed, as discussed below, in order to ensure consistency between the General Plan, the Specific Plans, and the proposed Dublin Bicycle and Pedestrian Master Plan. An amendment to the Dublin Zoning Ordinance is also proposed to ensure consistency with the bicycle parking and support facilities recommendations in the Dublin Bicycle and Pedestrian Master Plan. To clarify, the Planning Commission is making a recommendation on the conforming General Plan, Specific Plans and zoning amendments, not on the proposed Dublin Bicycle and Pedestrian Master Plan itself. The following is a description of the proposed amendments to the General Plan, Specific Plans, and Dublin Zoning Ordinance. Dublin General Plan Chapter 5 (Circulation and Scenic Highways Element) of the Dublin General Plan contains policies that support a comprehensive circulation network that supports multiple modes of transportation including vehicles, transit, cycling, and walking. Portions of Chapter 5 are proposed to be amended to change references from "Bikeways Master Plan" to "Dublin Bicycle and Pedestrian Master Plan" and to change specific references to bicycling to also include walking. Figures 5-3 and 5-4 are proposed to be amended to reflect an updated bikeways network as shown in the Dublin Bicycle and Pedestrian Master Plan. The following policy amendments are proposed to Section 5.2: • Implementing Policy 5.2.2.8.2 currently requires the design and construction of all roads in the City's circulation network as defined in Figure 5-1. The proposed amendment would add the design and construction of bicycle and pedestrian networks, as defined in the Dublin Bicycle and Pedestrian Master Plan, to this implementing policy. 7of13 • Implementing Policy 5.2.5.B.1 requires that the City periodically review the improvements identified in the Downtown Traffic Impact Fee (TIF) Program to ensure that the improvements are consistent with the Downtown Dublin Specific Plan. The proposed amendment would also require a review of the TIF Program for consistency with the Dublin Bicycle and Pedestrian Master Plan. This policy also allows the City to revise the list of improvements in the TIF if the revisions are consistent with the General Plan and Downtown Dublin Specific Plan. The proposed amendment would also require consistency with the Dublin Bicycle and Pedestrian Master Plan. • Implementing Policy 5.2.5.13.2 requires that projects within the Downtown Dublin Specific Plan area be reviewed to identify project-related improvements that can be implemented to increase vehicular, bicyclist and pedestrian safety, transit service efficiency, and the effectiveness of the roadway network as long as the improvements are consistent with the General Plan and Downtown Dublin Specific Plan. The proposed amendment would also require consistency with the Dublin Bicycle and Pedestrian Master Plan. Section 5.5 (Pedestrian Routes and Bikeways) describes the City's existing Citywide Bikeways Master Plan which was adopted in 2007. The proposed amendment would update this section to reflect the Dublin Bicycle and Pedestrian Master Plan. The following policy amendments are also proposed to Section 5.5: • Guiding Policy 5.5.1.A.1 is to provide safe bikeways along arterials. The proposed amendment is to provide safe, continuous, comfortable and convenient bikeways throughout the City. • Guiding Policy 5.5.1.A.2 is to improve and maintain bicycle routes and support facilities consistent with the Bikeways Master Plan. The proposed amendment would add pedestrian facilities to this policy and change the Plan reference to the Dublin Bicycle and Pedestrian Master Plan. • A new Guiding Policy, 5.5.1.A.4 is proposed to be added to provide comfortable, safe, and convenient walking routes throughout the City and, in particular, to key destinations such as Downtown Dublin, the BART Stations, schools, parks and commercial centers. • Implementing Policy 5.5.1.13.2 is to improve bicycle routes and support facilities consistent with the Bikeways Master Plan in conjunction with development proposals. The proposed amendment would add pedestrian facilities and change the Plan reference to the Dublin Bicycle and Pedestrian Master Plan. • Implementing Policy 5.5.1.13.3 is to ensure on-going maintenance of bicycle routes and support facilities that are intended for public use and located on private property in conjunction with development proposals. The proposed amendment would add pedestrian facilities. Chapter 10 (Community Design and Sustainability Element) of the Dublin General Plan guides public and private development to create a City that is diverse, functional and aesthetically appealing. The Element contains goals and policies that provide a framework for community development and guidelines for new construction and improvements while protecting the City's positive characteristics. Minor revisions to Chapter 10 are proposed to change all "Bikeways Master Plan" references to "Dublin Bicycle and Pedestrian Master Plan. Section 10.2.H is also 8of13 proposed to be amended to update the description of the Dublin Bicycle and Pedestrian Master Plan. For a complete list of proposed amendments to Chapters 5 and 10 of the General Plan, refer to Attachment 3, Exhibit A. Eastern Dublin Specific Plan The Eastern Dublin Specific Plan provides a framework for the future growth and development of approximately 4,300 acres of land south and east of the Dublin Crossings Specific Plan area and Camp Parks (Parks Reserve Forces Training Area, RFTA). The Specific Plan includes detailed information on necessary infrastructure improvements and a strategy for implementation to ensure that development will be coordinated and occur in an orderly manner. Portions of Chapter 3 (Summary), Chapter 5 (Traffic and Circulation) and Chapter 7 (Community Design) are proposed to be amended consistent with the proposed amendments to the General Plan and the Dublin Bicycle and Pedestrian Master Plan. • Section 3.4.4 (Bicycle Circulation) calls for the development of a safe and convenient bicycle circulation system which will include bike paths, bike lanes and bicycle storage facilities. The proposed amendment calls for the development of a safe, continuous, comfortable and convenient bicycle circulation system which will include bicycle routes and support facilities consistent with the Dublin Bicycle and Pedestrian Master Plan. • Section 5.5 (Bicycle Circulation) generally describes bicycle circulation within the Specific Plan area and refers to the Bikeways Master Plan. The proposed amendment would update this section to reflect the goals and policies of the updated Dublin Bicycle and Pedestrian Master Plan. The goal is to provide safe and convenient bicycle circulation. The proposed amendment would revise the goal to provide safe, continuous, comfortable and convenient bikeways. • Section 5.5.1 (Bicycle Routes) describes Class I and Class II bicycle routes. The proposed amendment would update the descriptions of Class I and Class II bikeways consistent with the Dublin Bicycle and Pedestrian Master Plan and add a description for Class III bikeways. Policy 5-17 would also be updated to change the reference from the Bikeways Master Plan to the Dublin Bicycle and Pedestrian Master Plan. • Section 5.5.2 (Bicycle Parking Requirements) requires safe and convenient storage of bicycles in order to encourage their use particularly at schools and recreation areas such as parks. Policy 5-18 is proposed to be amended to include bicycle support facilities at key destinations such as schools, recreation areas, transit stops and commercial centers. Action Program 5D is also proposed to be amended to include bicycle parking and support facilities consistent with the Dublin Bicycle and Pedestrian Master Plan. • Figure 5-3b (East Dublin Bicycle Circulation System) identifies the location of existing and proposed bikeways and trails in eastern Dublin and their relationship to parks, schools and the transit center. This Figure is proposed to be amended to reflect existing and proposed bike lanes and trails consistent with the Dublin Bicycle and Pedestrian Master Plan. • Section 7.4.1 (Overall Gateway Design Guidelines) includes a subsection on pedestrian and bicycle circulation within the Gateway Subareas of the Specific Plan area with an 9of13 emphasis on providing connections between office, commercial and industrial areas and safe pedestrian crossings of Dublin Boulevard. The proposed amendment includes providing comfortable, safe and convenient walking routes and the provision of bicycle parking and support facilities in accordance with the Dublin Bicycle and Pedestrian Master Plan. • Section 7.5.1 (Pedestrian/Bike Paths) provides guidelines for the siting and design of pedestrian and bike paths as well as bicycle parking. A new introductory paragraph is proposed to be added to this section to emphasize that the design and location of bicycle and pedestrian routes, support facilities and bicycle parking are critical for encouraging alternative transportation choices. The proposed amendment also includes a reference to the Dublin Bicycle and Pedestrian Master Plan for additional guidelines that support reduced dependency on the automobile and promote alternative transportation choices. For a complete list of proposed amendments to the Eastern Dublin Specific Plan, refer to Attachment 3, Exhibit A. Dublin Village Historic Area Specific Plan The Dublin Village Historic Area Specific Plan was developed to guide future development in the specific plan area to be sensitive to the area's historic past and to preserve and enhance the area's remaining historic, cultural and archeological resources. Portions of Section 4 (Existing Conditions) as well as Exhibit 4 (Existing Land Uses), Exhibit 5 (Existing General Plan Land Use), Exhibit 6 (Zoning), and Exhibit 7 (Circulation) are proposed to be amended. • Section 4.6 (Transportation and Circulation) describes the existing transportation and circulation network within the specific plan area. The entire section is proposed to be updated to reflect current conditions as well as proposed bike lanes consistent with the Dublin Bicycle and Pedestrian Master Plan. • Revisions to Exhibits 4, 5 and 6 are clean-up items not directly related to the Dublin Bicycle and Pedestrian Master Plan update. The revisions include updating the land use and zoning designations for the Heritage Park and Museums which was previously a retail commercial shopping center. • Exhibit 7 is a circulation diagram for the specific plan area which includes existing and proposed bikeways. The proposed amendments would update the diagram consistent with the Dublin Bicycle and Pedestrian Master Plan. For a complete list of proposed amendments to the Dublin Village Historic Area Specific Plan, refer to Attachment 3, Exhibit A. Downtown Dublin Specific Plan The Downtown Dublin Specific Plan provides development standards and design guidelines to achieve a vibrant and dynamic commercial and mixed-use center that provides a wide array of opportunities for shopping, services, dining, working, living and entertainment in a pedestrian- friendly and aesthetically pleasing setting that attracts both local and regional residents. Portions of Chapter 1 (Introduction), Chapter 2 (Site and Context), Chapter 4 (Development Standards and Design Guidelines) and Chapter 5 (Mobility and Infrastructure Plan) are proposed to be amended as well as Figures 2-6 (Pedestrian Circulation) and 2-7 (Bicycle Circulation). 10 of 13 • Section 1.6.3 (City of Dublin Bikeways Master Plan) describes the applicability of the existing Plan within the Specific Plan area. The proposed amendments would update the name of the Plan and the description to reflect the Dublin Bicycle and Pedestrian Master Plan. • Section 2.2.4 (Circulation and Parking) includes a subsection that describes the existing street network in the Specific Plan area. Each street as well as both freeways have been reviewed and revised accordingly to reflect existing conditions including existing and proposed bikeways. • Section 2.2.4 (Circulation and Parking) includes another subsection that describes pedestrian and bicycle circulation in the Specific Plan area. The proposed amendments update this section consistent with the Dublin Bicycle and Pedestrian Master Plan. • Figure 2-6 depicts pedestrian circulation within the Specific Plan area. This Figure would be updated to reflect existing and proposed pedestrian networks consistent with the Dublin Bicycle and Pedestrian Master Plan. • Figure 2-7 depicts bicycle circulation within the Specific Plan area. This Figure would be updated to reflect existing and proposed bike lanes consistent with the Dublin Bicycle and Pedestrian Master Plan. • Sections 4.1.3, 4.2.3 and 4.3.3 include development standards for each of the three districts in the Specific Plan area: the Retail District, the Transit Oriented District and the Village Parkway District. The proposed amendments would revise the development standard for residential and non-residential bicycle parking requirements to conform to the California Green Building Standards Code, consistent with the recommendations in the Dublin Bicycle and Pedestrian Master Plan. • Chapter 5 is the mobility and infrastructure plan. It establishes the circulation and infrastructure improvements required to achieve the development potential of the Specific Plan area. Section 5.2.1 (Pedestrian Pathways), Section 5.2.2 (Bikeways and Bicycle Connections) and Section 5.2.3 (Golden Gate Drive Bicycle Improvements) are proposed to be amended to reflect existing conditions and proposed improvements consistent with the Dublin Bicycle and Pedestrian Master Plan. For a complete list of proposed amendments to the Downtown Dublin Specific Plan, refer to Attachment 3, Exhibit A. Dublin Zoning Ordinance Chapter 8.76 (Off-Street Parking and Loading Regulations) includes development standards to ensure safe, attractive and convenient off-street parking facilities that are compatible with surrounding land uses. The development standards include providing bicycle parking for residential and non-residential land uses. Section 8.76.070.A.2 (Bicycle Racks) is proposed to be replaced with a development standard that requires bicycle parking, consistent with the recommendations in the Dublin Bicycle and Pedestrian Master Plan. The California Green Building Standards Code requires short-term and long-term bicycle parking for new buildings and additions or alterations to existing buildings. The amount of 11 of 13 bicycle parking required depends on the number of visitors the project generates and the number of tenant-occupants. The Code also establishes location requirements and types of parking facilities for both short-term and long-term bicycle parking. The complete text amendment to Section 8.76.070.A.2 (Bicycle Racks) of the Dublin Zoning Ordinance can be found in Attachment 3, Exhibit B. CONSISTENCY WITH THE GENERAL PLAN, SPECIFIC PLAN AND ZONING ORDINANCE: Based on the above described project-related amendments to the General Plan, Eastern Dublin Specific Plan, Dublin Village Historic Area Specific Plan, and Downtown Dublin Specific Plan, the proposed Dublin Bicycle and Pedestrian Master Plan is in conformance with the General Plan and applicable Specific Plans, as amended. NOTICING REQUIREMENTS/PUBLIC OUTREACH: As mentioned above, the City hosted two public workshops and a community meeting and City Staff attended meetings with the Dublin Chamber of Commerce over the course of the Plan process. In October 2013, City Staff presented the Downtown Connectivity project to the City Council which provided an additional opportunity for public comment. In accordance with State law, a notice of this public hearing was published in the Valley Times and posted at several locations throughout the City. The Public Notice was also provided to all persons who have expressed an interest in being notified of meetings. A copy of this Staff Report has been made available on the City's website. ENVIRONMENTAL REVIEW: The California Environmental Quality Act (CEQA), together with State Guidelines and City Environmental Regulations require that certain projects be reviewed for environmental impacts and that environmental documents be prepared. An Initial Study was prepared to analyze the potential environmental impacts of the Dublin Bicycle and Pedestrian Master Plan update as well as proposed amendments to the Dublin General Plan, Eastern Dublin Specific Plan, Dublin Village Historic Area Specific Plan, Downtown Dublin Specific Plan and Zoning Ordinance. Based on the analysis contained in the Initial Study, it has been determined that the project will not have a significant effect on the environment; therefore, a Negative Declaration has been prepared (Attachment 4). The Negative Declaration was circulated for public review between June 14, 2014 and July 14, 2014 and three comments were received from the public (Attachment 5). The first comment expresses concern over the timing of bike lanes over the Hacienda Drive and Tassajara Road freeway overcrossings both of which are under the purview of Caltrans and the City of Pleasanton. Staff's response is that Dublin would collaborate with the City of Pleasanton and Caltrans to secure grant funding to conduct a bikeway feasibility study, and based on the results of the study, the three agencies could jointly apply for competitive grant funding to implement the recommended bikeway projects. The second commenter would like to see more progress made on bicycle lane striping and a safer Downtown. Staff has identified major next steps for the implementation of the Plan which includes the initiation of a Capital Improvement Project in Fiscal Year 2014-15 to implement the Downtown Multi-Modal Improvement Project for pedestrian and bicycle improvements. 12 of 13 The third comment came from the Dublin Unified School District who agrees with the CEQA Initial Study but mentioned there could be potential impacts to students attending schools in the vicinity of pedestrian and bicycle improvements. Staff noted that the City Public Works Department will coordinate with the School District and affected school(s) to avoid or minimize potential disruption during construction of projects.

The most recent federal surface transportation funding program, Moving Ahead for Progress in the 21st Century Act (MAP-21), was signed into law in July 2012. This is the first long-term federal transportation authorization enacted since 2005, and the new authorization brings significant changes to typical funding sources and structures. MAP-21 funding is distributed to federal and state surface transportation funds. Most of these resources are available to the City of Dublin through Caltrans, the Metropolitan Transportation Commission (MTC) and the Alameda County Transportation Commission (Alameda CTC). This chapter includes details about current programs that are used to fund existing scheduled projects and an assessment of upcoming programs as of April 2013. Thes e may change as state and local programs adapt to the new MAP-21 funding. The majority of public funds for bicycle, pedestrian, and trails projects are derived through a core group of federal and state programs. Federal funding is authorized through the Surface Transportation Program (STP). STP provides flexible funding that may be used by S tates and localities for projects on any Federal-aid highway. In the past this funding was authorized by the Safe, Accountable, Flexible, Efficient Transportation Equity Act: A Legacy for Users (SAFETEA-LU). SAFETEA-LU was authorized in 2005 and addresses the challenges associated with safety, traffic congestion, freight, intermodal connectivity and environment by directing funds to state and local transportation decision makers. SAFETEA-LU expired in 2009, but authorized the funds that are currently being used to fund existing transportation programs and projects. Future funding for STP is authorized by MAP-21, with the same structure and goals of the existing STP funding. Transportation Enhancements (TE) under SAFETEA-LU is now the Transportation Alternatives Program (TAP). TAP, authorized through MAP-21, consolidates TE, Safe Routes to School, and Recreational Trails and provides funding for programs and projects defined as transportation alternatives, including on- and off-road pedestrian and bicycle facilities, transit access, mobility, and recreation trails program. TAP broadens eligibility and flexibility for state allocation of TAP funds. Safe Routes to School programs, including infrastructure, encouragement, campaigns, education, outreach and a Safe Routes coordinator, are eligible under TAP, though no funds are dedicated for this. The Congestion Mitigation and Air Quality Improvement Program (CMAQ) also authorizes federal funds, including education programs. MAP-21 maintains the existing CMAQ program and broadens eligibility for transit operations. Federal funds from STP, TAP and CMAQ programs are allocated to MTC and distributed in Alameda County through Alameda CTC.. Distribution is allocated either competitively or proportionally according to jurisdiction population. Other recent policies at the federal level have resulted in a series of programs that promise to provide increased funding in the coming years for bicycle projects. The HUD-DOT-EPA Interagency Partnership for Sustainable Communities has generated a series of new grant programs to-date, including Urban Circulator grants, TIGER grants, and Sustainable Communities Planning grants. The Department of Transportation recently announced a new DOT policy initiative, indicating “well- connected walking and bicycling networks [are] an important component for livable communities.” There are a number of state-wide funding sources and regionally administered funds. These are summarized below and in Table C-1, which shows the applicability of these various funding sources to projects, planning efforts, and programs proposed in this Plan. Prior to 2012, the state and federal Safe Routes to School programs were potential funding sources for both bicycle and pedestrian planning and infrastructure projects that improve access to schools. Caltrans administered two Safe Routes to School programs: the state-legislated program (SR2S), authorized by California Streets and Highways Code Section 2330-2334, and the federal program (SRTS), authorized by the SAFETEA-LU federal funding bill. The SR2S and SRTS programs provided $24.25 million and $21 million, respectively, in annual funding. While the future of Safe Routes funding is uncertain in California, ongoing legislative efforts are being considered to continue funding programs at or near historical levels. Neither MAP-21, the federal funding bill for transportation spending, nor the proposed California’s Governor’s Budget 2013-14, include set-aside funds for Safe Routes to School projects. See the regional funding discussion below for other sources for Safe Routes funding. California state assembly bills currently under consideration propose continued state funding for Safe Routes to School. Should Safe Routes to School funding continue beyond 2013, several of the proposed bikeways in this Plan could be eligible for Safe Routes to School programs. In general, the pedestrian and bikeway projects most competitive for Safe Routes to School funding have the following characteristics:  Directly accesses a school  Are part of the network of low-stress bikeways such that students and their parents will be comfortable bicycling on the facility  Resolve a documented safety problem or safety concern  Have strong support from school officials and nearby residents TABLE C-1: REGIONAL FUNDING SOURCE APPLICABILITY MATRIX Funding Source Class I Bicycle Path Class II Bicycle Lane Class III Bicycle Route Pedestrian Projects Other Projects Planning and Programs Safe Routes to School Highway Safety Improvement Program (HSIP) Grants Caltrans Transportation Planning Grants California Bicycle Transportation Account (BTA) Local Transportation Fund (LTF) California State Parks Recreational Trails Program (RTP) Land and Water Conservation Fund (LWCP) Proposed Active Transportation Program (ATP) One Bay Area Grant (OBAG) BAAQMD Transportation Fund for Clean Air2 Transportation Development Act (TDA) Measure B Measure F Notes: 1. indicate that funds may be used for this category; indicate that funds may not be used for this category, and indicate that funds may be used, though restrictions apply. 2.

The Highway Safety Improvement Program (HSIP) program was established as part of SAFETEA-LU in 2005 to implement infrastructure- related highway safety improvements to significantly reduce traffic fatalities and serious injuries on public roads. The Highway Safety Improvement Program (HSIP) is a core federal-aid program that aims to reduce traffic fatalities and serious injuries on public roads. Caltrans administers the program in California; in its most recent grant cycle (July 2012), Caltrans awarded $111 million to 221 projects. HSIP funds can be used for projects such as bicycle lanes on local roadways, improvements to Class I shared-use paths, pedestrian safety improvements, or for traffic calming measures. Applications that identify a history of incidents and demonstrate their project’s improvement to safety are most competitive for funding. Caltrans expects the available funding apportioned to local agencies in the 2013 Federal Statewide Transportation Improvement Program (FSTIP), which is a four-year funding cycle from 2012/13 through 2015/16, to be approximately $100 million for the four-year HSIP plan. More information is available online: http://www.dot.ca.gov/hq/LocalPrograms/hsip.htm Caltrans Transportation Planning Grants are available to jurisdictions and can be used for planning or feasibility studies. The maximum funding available per project is $300,000. Bicycle facilities can be funded through the California Bicycle Transportation Account (BTA). Annually, $7.2 million is available for projects through the BTA. Limited amounts from the Local Transportation Fund (LTF), which is derived from a ¼ cent of the general sales tax collected statewide, can be used for bicycle and pedestrian facilities. The California State Parks administers the state’s Recreational Trails Program (RTP). RTP provides funds annually for recreational trails and trails-related projects. Cities are eligible applicants for the approximately $5.3 million available annually. The program requires an applicant match of 12 percent of the total project cost. The National Park Service and California State Parks administer the Land and Water Conservation Fund (LWCP). The LWCF Program provides matching grants to states and local governments for the acquisition and development of public outdoor recreation areas and facilities Cities are eligible applicants. Approximately $1.74 million is available annually; grants require a 50 percent local match. Some of these programs will no longer be funded under proposed and current federal and state funding plans, and may only be short -term funding resources for the current schedule of projects. See below for proposed funding structures related to some of these programs. The Governor has proposed to consolidate five existing state funded programs: Transportation Alternatives Program, Recreational Trails program, Safe Routes to Schools, Environmental Enhancement and Mitigation Program and the Bicycle Transportation Account. Under the new plan the Governor proposes to create a single Active Transportation Program (ATP) administered by the state Business, Transportation and Housing Agency. As it is proposed, the ATP provides approximately $134 million annually, with a focus on implementing active transportation improvements to support the goals of local SB 375 sustainable community strategies. This program would be funded from a combination of federal and state funds from appropriations in the annual state budget act. Project types allowed under the ATP would include: new bikeways serving major transportation corridors, new bikeways to improve bicycle commuting options, bicycle parking at transit and employment centers, traffic control devices to improve pedestrian and bicycle safety, improving and maintaining safety on existing bikeways, recreational facilities, Safe Routes to School projects, Safe Routes To Transit projects, education programs, and other improvements to bicycle-transit connections and urban environments. MTC created the Transportation for Livable Communities (TLC) program in 1998. It provides technical assistance and funding to cities, counties, transit agencies and nonprofit organizations for capital projects and community-based planning that encourage multimodal travel and the revitalization of town centers and other mixed-use neighborhoods. The program funds projects that improve bicycling to transit stations, neighborhood commercial districts and other major activity centers. One Bay Area Grant Program (OBAG) is now an umbrella for the previous MTC grant programs. It combines funding for Transportation for Livable Communities, Bicycle, Local Streets and Roads Rehabilitation, and Safe Routes to School for the FY 2012-13 through 2015-16 funding cycles. This program is administered by MTC and awards funding to counties based on progress toward achieving local land -use and housing policies. Cities and counties can still use OBAG funds for projects described under these programs. MTC OBAG program information: http://www.mtc.ca.gov/funding/onebayarea/ The Surface Transportation Program (STP) block grant provides SAFETEA and MAP-21 funding for transportation projects, including pedestrian and bicycle projects (see above discussion about Federal programs for details). This program is administered by MTC, which can prioritize projects for RSTP funding. MTC STP program information: http://www.mtc.ca.gov/funding/STPCMAQ/ Transportation Development Act (TDA), Article 3 funds statewide funds for planning and construction of pedestrian and bicycle facilities administered locally through MTC. TDA, Article 3 funds are allocated based on population and may be used for engineering, right of way, construction, retrofitting, route improvements, and an assortment of bicycle facilities. Through MTC’s Regional Measure 2, funded by an increase State-owned toll bridges in the Bay Area, the Safe Routes to Transit (SR2T) grant program awards funding to projects that support “last-mile” walking and bicycling connections to regional transit stations. The goal is to make walking and bicycling to transit easier, faster, and safer. The program is administered by TransForm and the East Bay Bicycle Coalition. Cycle Four awarded eight cities and agencies with over $4,000,000. A call for projects for the last SR2T funding cycle is anticipated in 2013. In partnership with the Bay Area Air Quality Management District (BAAQMD), Bay Conservation Development Commission and the Association of Bay Area Governments, MTC sponsor s a transportation- oriented Climate Action Program, designed to reduce mobile source emissions through various strategies. The grant program provide s funding for pedestrian and bicycle projects through new Safe Routes to School and Safe Routes to Transit programs, with total funding expected to be approximately $400 million. As of April 2013 state Safe Routes to School funding is not yet finalized. This funding will be in addition to the state and federal Safe Routes to School programs and MTC’s existing Safe Routes to Transit program. Transportation Fund for Clean Air (TCFA) is a grant program administered by the Bay Area Air Quality Management District (BAAQMD). The purpose of the program, which is funded through a $4 surcharge on motor vehicles registered in the Bay Area, is to fund projects and programs that will reduce air pollution from motor vehicles. Grant awards are generally made on a first-come, first-served basis to qualified projects. A portion of TFCA revenues collected in each Bay Area county is returned to that county's congestion management agency (CMA) for allocation (Alameda County Transportation Commission in Alameda County). Applications are made from local agencies directly to the CMAs, but must also be approved by the BAAQMD. TFCA County Program Manager Fund: http://www.baaqmd.gov/Divisions/Strategic-Incentives/Funding- Sources/TFCA/County-Program-Manager-Fund.aspx Alameda County’s Measure B sales tax increase of one-half of one percent was approved by Alameda County voters in 2000 to fund transportation improvements designated in the Alameda County 20-year Transportation Expenditure Plan. Measure B is administered by Alameda CTC and funds a wide variety of transportation projects, including the TransForm Safe Routes programs, Countywide Discretionary Fund Bicycle and Pedestrian Grant Program and Transit Oriented Development Grant Program. Alameda CTC grant program information: http://www.alamedactc.org/app_pages/view/4617 The last call for projects, the Gap Grant Cycle 5 Program, was in February 2013. Voters considered Measure B1 on the November 2012 ballot, which would have extended the Measure B sales tax in perpetuity (it is now scheduled to expire in March of 2022) and increased that tax by one-half of one percent to a total one percent sales tax. This measure required two-thirds approval and narrowly failed. Alameda County’s Measure F was approved by Alameda County voters in 2010 to increase vehicle registration fees by $10. Measure F is expected to generate $11 million per year for the county, which is administered through Alameda CTC and may be used for maintaining city and county roads, congestion relief efforts (including transit passes and station improvements), technology improvement and crosswalks, sidewalks, pedestrian-scale lighting and improvements to pedestrian and bicycle travel. Private/local funding for pedestrian projects comes primarily from development projects, either in the form of improvements constructed directly by developers, local funding mechanisms, or through development fee programs. Future road repaving, widening and construction projects are methods of upgrading or installing new pedestrian and bicycle facilities. To ensure that roadway construction projects provide pedestrian and bicycle facilities where needed, the project review process should include a review of the City’s proposed pedestrian and bicycle project list. Typically, new development projects are required to install sidewalks , crosswalk enhancements, bicycle facilities and parking or bus pullouts. MTC provides a typical routine accommodations checklist that describes the items that the City should look for when reviewing projects: http://www.mtc.ca.gov/planning/bicyclespedestrians/Routine_Accommod ation_checklist.pdf The City of Dublin’s Proposed Five Year Capital Improvement Plan (CIP) includes 32 projects within the current CIP time frame with a proposed funding allocation for 24 projects in Fiscal year 2012-2013 and 16 projects in Fiscal Year 2013 -2014. The City may use the CIP to formulate its budget, but it does not preclude “opportunistic projects,” such as a street resurfacing or development project. Opportunistic projects are unanticipated projects where the City may incorporate pedestrian facilities, even if the projects occur out of sequence. Assessment districts or special improvement districts can be established to provide finding for specific public improvement projects within the districts. Property owners in the districts are assessed for the improvements, and can make payments immediately or over a number of years. Street pavement, sidewalk repair, curb ramps and streetlights are commonly funded through assessment districts. Business Improvement Districts in commercial centers are funded this way. The 1982 California State Legislature Mello-Roos Community Facilities District Act allows communities to establish districts for special property tax assessments. Another potential local source of funding is developer impact fees, typically tied to trip generation and traffic impacts as a result of proposed projects. The City of Dublin currently has two fee programs in place: the Downtown Dublin Traffic Impact Fee and the Eastern Dublin Traffic Impact Fee. Both impact fee programs are expected to be updated in the near future, with the Downtown TIF slated for updating in 2014. Many of the bicycle and pedestrian improvement projects proposed in this Plan should be considered for inclusion in the updated fee program, with highest priority for inclusion given to the Tier One priority projects. Local Open Space Districts may float bonds that go to acquiring land or open space easements, which may also provide for some improvements to the local trail system. The East Bay Regional Park District (EBRPD) is the local open space district in Alameda County. EBRPD was awarded a $10.2 million TIGER II grant in October 2012 to close critical gap s in the paved regional trail system. Local sales taxes, developer or public agency land dedications, community benefit payments, private donations, and fund-raising events are other local options to generate funding for pedestrian pr ojects. For example, Kaiser Permanente Community Health Initiatives grants are available to public agencies to support increased physical activity in Alameda County. Creation of these potential sources usually requires substantial local support. Grant funding is highly competitive and the following options should be considered by the City in pursuing the funding necessary to complete the proposed improvements:  For multi-agency and cross-jurisdictional projects, prepare joint applications with other local and regional agencies, such as the City of Pleasanton or Livermore, Alameda County, BART, and East Bay Regional Park District. Joint applications often increase the competitiveness of projects for funding; however, coordination amongst the participating jurisdictions is often challenging. The City should act as the lead agency, with a strong emphasis on coordination between participating jurisdictions and agencies (transit and public health organizations) on important projects to ensure they are implemented as quickly as possible.  Leverage existing dedicated funding sources as matching funds for State and Federal funding.  Include pedestrian and bicycle projects in the Downtown Dublin Transportation Impact Fee program. When traffic improvement mitigations are proposed to address level of service, potential secondary impacts to walking and bicycling at the intersection should be considered. Meeting the adopted policy goals for walkability, may require overriding traffic improvement mitigations and, instead, implementing proposed pedestrian and bicycle improvements at the intersection.  Continue to require construction of pedestrian facilities, such as sidewalks, street trees and marked crossings, and bicycle facilities, including proposed projects on new roadways, bicycle parking, and bicycle detection, as part of new development.  Continue to include proposed pedestrian and bicycle improvements as part of roadway projects involving widening, overlays, or other improvements. The City should also take advantage of private contributions, if appropriate, in developing the proposed system. This could include a variety of resources, such as volunteer labor during construction, right - of-way donations, or monetary donations towards specific improvement s associated with improving pedestrian and bicycle access near private developments. Projects should be funded opportunistically. If funding becomes available for a medium- or long-term project before a short-term priority project, the funding should be used. Easy “quick fix” projects should be funded before larger construction projects, especially when they can be included with other short-term priority projects.

This document is intended to be a living document that will be updated regularly by the City of Dublin’s Public Works Department to make it consistent wit h best practices in bicycle and pedestrian planning and design. This document is divided into two basic chapters:  Pedestrian Design Guidelines  Bicycle Design Guidelines The Pedestrian Design Guidelines chapter also includes a detailed section on the design and installation of crosswalks. The Crosswalk Design section includes key considerations for the installation, enhancement, and/or removal of marked crosswalks in Dublin. The Crosswalk Design Guidelines are intended to apply Citywide. The Bicycle and Pedestrian Design Guidelines should be consulted by City staff, developers, and transportation engineers working in Dublin. For example, new development site designs should refer to this document to inform project development and recommendations. This Policy should also be consulted anytime new public infrastructure development, redevelopment, or upgrades occur. Final application of the Guidelines will require engineering judgment at all times. This page left intentionally blank Ped Design Guidelines Pe d e s t r i a n D e s i g n G u i d e l i n e s This section outlines guidelines for the design of walking facilities in the City of Dublin. Safe, walkable streets are a vital aspect of City life and enhance the health of our communities. Well-designed walking spaces should be comfortable for all residents – young and old – to enjoy. The pedestrian realm consists of walkways, pedestrian crossings, and open spaces. Walkways are “prepared exterior routes, des igned to provide walking accessibility. Walkways are general walking routes, including plazas and courts, and sidewalks are walkways that parallel a vehi cular roadway.”1 Additionally, pedestrian crossings, where pedestrians traverse a roadway, are considered part of the pedestrian realm. Plazas and courts are locations, either publicly or privately-owned, accessible to pedestrians. The quality of the pedestrian realm has two components: accessibility and comfort. The City of Dublin seeks to maximize both elements for all users. A well-connected pedestrian network is a vital component of livable communities, which thrive on multimodal travel for all roadway users, regardless of age or ability. Multimodal travel incorporates the needs of not just motor vehicles in roadway design, but the needs of pedestrians, bicyclists, and transit users as well. The primary goal of the Pedestrian Design Guidelines is to assist the City of Dublin in creating streets that accommodate pedestrians through a set of recommended practices that enhance the walkability of all streets within the City. These guidelines will help the City make decisions about the preferred application of pedestrian treatments in the following areas:  Streets and Sidewalks  Uncontrolled Intersections / Mid-block Crossing Treatments  Controlled Intersections and Crossings The pedestrian enhancements described throughout these guidelines provide street design best practice guidance, which can enhance the safety, convenience, and mobility for pedestrians. In particular, they provide guidance on appropriate treatments for the various “areas of focus” throughout Dublin, including downtown districts, access to transit stations, school zones, and barrier crossings. Potential treatment types for each of these areas include different design options for streets/sidewalks, pedestrian crossings, multimodal connections and community vitality. 1 U.S. Department of Transportation Complete streets practices improve the pedestrian realm when properly integrated with the adjacent land use context , because they encourage the design of streets with well-connected and comfortable sidewalks, traffic calming measures to manage vehicle speeds and enhanced pedestrian crossings. Though the level of accommodation of all modes will vary in different land use contexts, incomplete streets—those designed primarily for automobile access—can be a barrier in any neighborhood, particularly for people with disabilities, older adults, and children. Streets and sidewalks should support the activities and pedestrian levels along the street. Streets should be well-connected to ensure that destinations are within walking distance. Sidewalks should be wide enough to support the expected pedestrian volumes. This Plan recommends a minimum width of six feet for the pedestrian pathway section of a sidewalk, which is wide enough for two people to walk side by side, can be navigated by persons with mobility impairments, and meets current ADA requirements. Sidewalks in existing residential developments may remain at current widths (City approved minimum of 48 inches, or four feet) unless a substantial new development of multi-family dwelling units is planned. ADA sidewalk regulations specify that routes with less than 60 inches, or five feet of clear width must provide passing spaces at least 60 inches wide at reasonable intervals not exceeding 200 feet, and a five feet by five feet turning space should be provided where turning or maneuvering is necessary. This section provides guidelines on the design of sidewalk widths that meet walking demand, and provide buffer space between motor vehicle lanes and sidewalks and space for walking, sitting, and lingering. Table 1: Sidewalk Zones and Corners Discussion The sidewalk zone is the portion of the street right-of-way between the curb and building front. Within this zone, four distinct areas serve different organizational purposes (see below for more detail about how these apply to different settings). Design Example Edge Furnishings Throughway Frontage Design Summary These designs are recommended minimums, and ideally sidewalks with high pedestrian volumes should be 16 to 18 feet wide, and could include wider landscaped buffers, a seven and a half to 11 foot wide pedestrian pathway, and/or vegeta tive strips along the building face. On commercial streets, especially in Downtown Dublin, eight feet is the minimum desired sidewalk width. This includes a two to three foot comfort zone on either side of the pedestrian walkway, as pedestrians generally keep about 1.5 feet clear of planters, street furniture and other obstructions near the curb. This should not prevent the City from installing wider sidewalks in commercial districts and other locations with outdoor seating and amenities. Sidewalks on local streets should be a minimum of five feet wide. Landscaping separating the street from the sidewalk should be five feet wide. In addit ion to separating pedestrians from vehicle traffic, landscape buffers provide space for driveway curb cuts and reduce cross-slopes on sidewalks. Elements such as street furniture, newspaper racks, bicycle parking racks, and trash bins should be kept in the furniture zone and should not impede a straight travel path along the sidewalk. Additionally, “meandering” sidewalks are discouraged. They may prove challenging for visually-impaired pedestrians and lengthen travel distance.  Edge/ Curb Zone - At a minimum, such as in areas with lower pedestrian activity, there should be a 6 -inch wide curb. Other areas, such as downtowns, should have at least an extra foot to accommodate car doors to not conflict with the sidewalk.  Furnishing/Landscape Zone - This area acts as a buffer between the curb and throughway zone. This is the areas where trees should be planted and benches should be located. Any sidewalk amenities should be located within this area and should not interfere with the throug hway zone. Streets with higher speeds should have larger furnishing zones.  Throughway zone - The minimum width of this zone is typically six feet. See sidewalk width discussion above for exceptions and details about AD A compliance.  Frontage Zone - This area borders the building façade or fence. The primary purpose of this zone is to create a buffer between pedestrians walking in the throughway zone from people entering and exiting buildings. It provides opportunities for shops to place signs, planters, or chairs that do not encroach into the throughway zone. Some zones are more important in specific settings; for example, most residential streets will not include a frontage zone an d will only include a furnishing/landscape zone on streets with higher speeds. Only the curb and throug hway zone have minimum widths specified. Land Use Context Minimum Recommended Sidewalk Width Residential 5’ Commercial 8’ School Areas 8’ Industrial 6’ Pedestrian Area at Corners Corners must be functional and must accommodate those waiting to cross the street, those traveling along the sidewalk, and th ose who stop to congregate on the corner. The greater the number of expected pedestrians, the larger the pedestrian area should be. Other considerations sometimes erode the amount of usable space and hence the functionality of corners. Several strategies exist for expanding the pedestri an area at corners. Small corner radii generally provide the most usable space and the shortest crossing distances for pedestrians. Designers may also co nsider curb extensions, right-of-way acquisition, public easements across private property to expand the pedestrian area. The pedestrian area should be clear of obstructions, especially in the triangle created by extending the property lines to the face of curb. Where existing obstructions such as utility poles or newspaper racks are removed, they should not be relocated such that they obstruct a pedestrian’s line of travel. The general rule for choosing a corner radius should be to choose the smallest possible, acknowledging that each location has a unique set of factors that determines the appropriate radius. Small corner radii improve comfort, and create a more enjoyable walking environment because they create more usable space for pedestrians at the corner. They improve safety because they slow vehicle speeds and shorten the crossing di stance for pedestrians and improve sightlines. Smaller corner radii are also beneficial for street sweeping operations. While corner radii may be as small as 1’6”, locations with any amount of turning traffic cannot accommodate a radius this tight. At locations with curbside parking, a 10’ radius is recommended. At locations with no parking lane, a typical 20’ radius is recommended. Locations with heavy truck or transit traffic may require a wider turning radius. Street Type Recommended Curb Radius Residential 15 ft Local/Collector 20-30 ft Arterial 30 ft Industrial Up to 50 ft Table 2: Pedestrian Wayfinding Discussion A pedestrian wayfinding system provides consistent and user-friendly information about distances and routes to and from major transit centers and popular destinations, making these places easier to connect to, and encouraging people to make short trips on foot. Signs tha t explain pedestrian directions and summarize route distances make for a more enjoyable and comfortable walking experience. Wayfinding is an essen tial aspect of street infrastructure which makes pedestrians a priority within the streetscape and enhances the character of the street. Design Example Transit Wayfinding (WCCTAC examples) Design Summary Wayfinding signage should cater to both vehicles and pedestrians, particularly in districts with high levels of walking activ ity. Signs and routes that direct pedestrians to specific destinations are key to providing adequate wayfinding for pedestrians. Table 3: Pedestrian-Scale Lighting Discussion Pedestrian-scale lighting improves pedestrian visibility and the perception of safety and comfort while walking. Well -lit pedestrian facilities are more inviting, and function well for pedestrians after sunset. Design Example Pedestrian-scale Lighting (South San Francisco and Seattle) Design Summary Pedestrian-scale lighting provides a better-lit environment for pedestrians while improving visibility for motorists. Sidewalks with frequent nighttime pedestrian activity particularly in the Downtown area should have pedestrian lighting. All crosswalks should have pedestrian -scale lighting. Pedestrians tend to observe more details of the street environment since they travel at a slower pace than vehicles, and thus pedestrian -scale lighting should have shorter light poles and shorter spacing between posts. A height of 12- 20 feet is common for pedestrian lighting. The level of lighting should reflect the location and level of pedestrian activity. Table 4: High-Quality Street Furniture Discussion High-quality street furniture provides pedestrians with inviting places to rest, and clearly defines the furnishings zone of a sid ewalk. Street furniture enhances the streetscape with consistent design character, can protect landscape features, and formalizes waiting areas such as bus stops and street corners. Design Example Design Summary  Street furniture is normally placed on a sidewalk in the Frontage Zone, as described in Table 1, to provide additional comfort for pedestrians and enhance place making within the pedestrian realm. Street furniture makes pedestrians feel welcome, but should not conflict wi th the pedestrian travel path. Street furniture can include benches, specially designed newspaper racks, fountains, special garbage/recycling containers, etc. and shall be consistent with the City’s Streetscape Master Plan. Costs for street furniture vary widely depending on what is included and how it is integrated with other landscaping elements. Table 5: Standard Crosswalk Striping Discussion Crosswalks should be marked on all approaches of an intersection where feasible to delineate space for pedestrians to cross. While heavy vehicle volumes may present an exception, this should only be considered when all other options to accommodate motor vehicle demand have been dismissed. At intersections, crosswalks are essentially an extension of the sidewalk; if the sidewalk extends to the intersection, cross walk striping directs the pedestrian to the other side of the intersection in a direct path. Design Example Standard Crosswalk at Signalized Intersection Design Summary  Standard dual white lane stripes are recommended for pedestrian crossings at signalized or stop-controlled intersections. These bars should be one foot wide and extend from curb ramp to curb ramp.  Particularly in the Downtown area, an advance stop bar is recommended five to seven feet in advance of the crosswalk.  Table 6: High Visibility Crosswalk Striping Discussion High visibility striping is a tool that brings attention to pedestrians. This striping should be reserved for uncontrolled or mid-block locations and helps to direct pedestrian traffic to specific locations. As detailed in the crosswalk policy included in this Plan, high visibility markings should be used in combination with other design treatments, like refuge islands, bulb-outs, and other active device enhancements for roadways with more than four lanes or speeds over 40 mph. Design Example Example Crosswalk Types Approved by FHWA Continental Crosswalk High Visibility Ladder Crosswalk (school zone) Design Summary  The use of high visibility striping is recommended at uncontrolled crossing locations.  Communities should choose a preferred style of high visibility striping so it is consistently applied. Costs to install cross walks vary depending on the width and number of high visibility stripes used. Table 7: Special Paving Treatments Discussion Special paving treatments include adding texture to surfaces or coloring pavement to distinguish the sidewalk or crosswalk. T his treatment enhances the character of the overall pedestrian environment. The rougher roadway surface may also slow vehicles and draw more attention to the pedestrian realm. Design Example Brick Pattern Streetprint Design Brick, Pavers and Concrete Decorative Streetprint Design Summary Types of special paving treatments typically include:  Colored concrete  Stamped asphalt or concrete painted to resemble bricks.  Pavement stencils Designers must be careful to not confuse the visually impaired and cause problems for people with disabilities. Surfac es should be adapted to accommodate people using wheelchairs. A standard white stripe must be provided on either side of the crosswalk even when spec ial paving treatments are used to enhance the contrast between the crossing and the roadway (and legally es tablish the crosswalk at midblock locations). Table 8: Median Island / Pedestrian Refuge Discussion Refuge islands are raised islands in the center of a roadway that separate opposing lanes of traffic with a cutout or ramp for an accessible pedestrian path. They reduce pedestrian exposure to motor vehicles, and allow a pedestrian to cross a roadway in two stages. Their application is most pertinent in higher traffic volume areas that have four-lane or wider streets or when crossing distances exceed 60 feet. Design Example Pedestrian Refuge Island Split Pedestrian Cross-Over Staggered Crosswalk Pedestrian refuge islands should extend through the crosswalk, with a curb cut for wheelchair accessibility. Refuge islands should be clear of obstructions and have adequate drainage. They should be at least 12 feet long or the width of the crosswalk (whichever is greater) and 60 feet square. At actuated pedestrian signals, an accessible pedestrian push button should also be located in the median. Refuges can be a low cost way to reduce the crossing distance at wide intersections because often no curb (drainage) modifications are required. Recommended Refuge Island Widths Speed Minimum Width* 25-30 mph 5 feet 30-35 mph 6 feet 35-45 mph 8 feet *Where bikes are expected to use the crosswalk, medians should be at least six feet wide, the length of an average bike. Table 9: In-Street Pedestrian Crossing Signs Discussion This tool involves placing regulatory pedestrian signage in th e middle of the roadway centerline, either in front or behind the crosswalk. It is MUTCD- approved and assists to remind road users of laws regarding to the right of way at unsignalized pedestrian crossings. Design Example Design Summary Signs may be placed on the roadway centerline directly, as in the picture above. Careful placement is necessary to avoid maintenance iss ues with vehicles knocking down the sign. One option is to temporarily place the sign during specific time periods, such as when sc hool is in session. Another option is to put the sign within a raised median or place in -pavement raised markers around the sign. They can be placed either at mid-block crosswalk locations or intersections with significant pedestrian activity, such as near transit stations or schools. Table 10: Reduced Radii Discussion Reduced turning radii can create a more compact intersection design and improve sight distance. Dimensions of the curb at the intersection directly affect the speed of the approaching vehicle, especially for turning vehicles. Compact intersection design with low corner radii can also improve pedestrian visibility by removing barriers to sight distance. Improving sight distances gives motorists a clear vie w of pedestrians, while allowing the pedestrian to observe and react to any hazards. Ensuring proper sight distances between pedestrians and vehicles can decrease the rate and severity of turning related pedestrian-vehicle collisions. Design Example Design Summary Compact intersections are more comfortable for pedestrians and improve visibility between motorists and pedestrians. A large turning radius (generally 30 feet or greater) allows vehicles to turn at high speeds. Reducing the radius forces ap proaching vehicles to slow down while still accommodating larger vehicles, thus reducing the frequency and severity of pedestrian collisions at intersections. On -street parking and bicycle lanes can also allow for smaller curb radii while maintaining the same effective curb radius. Note that on-street parking should be restricted in advance of crosswalks, to improve visibility for pedestrians. Cost of curb radius adjustments will depend on the site -specific drainage conditions and existing and desired dimensions, and may include costs associated with concrete sidewalk removal and new curb and gutter. Table 11: Curb Extensions Discussion Also known as pedestrian bulb-outs, curb extensions increase driver awareness of pedestrians and help slow traffic. They provide a larger space for pedestrians to wait before crossing and prevent cars from parking near the crosswalk. Curb extensions are highly beneficial in downtown or transi t station areas, which generate significant pedestrian activity. They may also be beneficial in school zones or neighborhood districts, which have vulnerable pedestrians, such as children or older adults that would benefit from an enhanced treatment that reduces crossing distances. Generally, curb extensions should extend a minimum of six feet into the street adjacent to parallel parking, or 12 feet adjacent to diagonal parking, and no farther than the edge of the travel lane or bicycle lane. The leading edge of all curb extensions should be treated with reflective material for higher visibility, unless otherwise determined by the City Engineer. Designers should exercise special care not to create conflicts between bicyclists and pedestrians and not to design the curb extension such that cyclists are forced to “take the lane” at intersections where it is not appropriate. Curb extensions can also improve the visibility of stop signs at stop-controlled locations. Design Example Design Summary Curb extensions involve extending the curb space into the street to create a shorter pedestrian crossing. They should not extend into the bicyclist line of travel to avoid impeding bicyclists and motorists. This can be achieved by designing the bulb-out width to be the same as the adjacent on-street parking (7-8’ for parallel parking, or wider as necessary at locations with angled parking). They may also require removal of on street parking. Low-height landscaping within bulb-outs can further enhance the character and comfort of the pedestrian realm. Bulb-outs may also create space for pedestrian amenities or bicycle parking. Table 12: Curb Ramps Discussion Pedestrians with mobility impairments, such as people using wheelchairs or canes, need curb ramps to safely access a sidewalk and crosswalk. Design Example Design Summary The Architectural and Transportation Barriers Compliance Board and the U.S. Access Board have developed Proposed Accessibilit y Guidelines for Pedestrian Facilities in the Public Right-of-Way to ensure that sidewalks, pedestrian street crossings, pedestrian signals, and other facilities for pedestrian circulatio n and use constructed or altered in the public right-of-way by state and local governments are readily accessible to and usable by pedestrians with disabilities. Public Rights-of Way (PROWAG) Notice of Proposed Rule Making was last updated in 2011, and is subject to updates. The most recent version can be found online: http://www.access-board.gov/prowac/nprm.htm Directional (dual) ramps should be standard; these ramps point the pedestrian toward the crosswalk. In some cases this design may be cost prohibitive due to utility relocation or curb reconstruction. Dual curb ramps are especially desirable at locations with narrow sidewalks and a wide corner radius. At locations with narrow sidewalks and a tight corner radius, a single curb ramp may be appropriate. Ramps and dropped landings that end directly in the roadway should have a truncated dome tactile surface. All new curb ramps in Dublin must comply with the Americans with Disabilities Act Accessibility Guidelines (ADAAG) and the St ate of California Code of Regulations Title 24. The California Disabled Accessibility Guidebook (CalDAG) synthesizes the recommendations from both sources. As depicted in the illustration, directional ramps are preferred over diagonal ramps as they provide direct access to each crosswalk. Curb ramps should be ADA compliant to accommodate mobility and visually impaired pedestrians. Detectable warnings are required by the ADA Accessibility Guidelines with any new curb ramp or reconstruction. These guidelines call for raised truncated domes of 23 mm diameter and 5mm height. Curb ramps should align in the direction of the crosswalk and have enough clear space beyond the curb line so the pedestrian is not drawn right into the line of traffic. Table 13: Right-Turn Slip Lane Design Discussion Free right turns often create conflicts with crossing pedestrians and should be restricted whenever possible as they encourag e fast turning. When they are necessary, design strategies can enhance the pedestrian crossing and improve visibility of bicyclists on intersecting streets (illustrated below). Design Example Design Summary A slip lane with a high entry angle provides improved sight distance in an area where traffic speeds are slower t han farther downstream. In an urban interchange that has a right-turn merge onto the arterial, the acute angle of the merging approach can create visibility problems, especially as motor vehicles are hyper-focused on merging into traffic. The configuration may also discourage drivers from reducing their speeds to the level safe enough for merging as well as pedestrians and bicyclists crossing the ramp lane. Research findings call for designing a right merge lane at an interchange using a right turn slip lane with an entry angle greater than 70 degrees. Where the angle cannot be reduced, the slip lane can be improved for pedestrians by adding a raised crosswalk or signalizing the pedestrian crossing. Table 14: Advanced Yield Markings Discussion Advanced yield markings designate the yielding location for vehicles yielding the right-of-way to pedestrians at an uncontrolled location. They should be installed with every uncontrolled crosswalk on multi-lane roads, and are an option for single lane crossings where enhanced visibility of the crosswalk is desired. Design Example Advanced Stop Bars Advanced Yield Markings Design Summary Advance yield markings are a row of white triangles, with the points facing drivers and the flat edges facing the crosswalk. They should be placed seven feet in advance of a single lane crosswalk and 20-50 feet (ideally 30 feet) in advance of a multi-lane crosswalk. The “yield here to pedestrians” sign (FHWA MUTCD sign R1-5a, or CA MUTCD R1-2) should accompany the striping installation. Table 15: Advanced Warning Signs Discussion Advanced warning signs alert drivers to upcoming stops and pedestrian crossings. Warning signs inform unfamiliar drivers of unexpected crossings and possible pedestrian conflicts at midblock or poor visibility locations. They may also be used at high -volume pedestrian crossing locations to add emphasis to the crosswalk, school crossings, and school bus stop locations. Design Example Design Summary Advanced warning signs for pedestrian crossings should not be mounted with other warning signs, except for supplemental dista nce signs indicating the proximity of the crossing, to avoid visual clutter and information overload. The CA MUTCD specifies a 36in x 36in x 36in sign size. The CA MUTCD specifies a number of examples that may be used for advanced warning (including FHWA MUTCD sign R1-5a, or CA MUTCD R1-2). Table 16: Rectangular Rapid Flashing Beacon Discussion The Rectangular Rapid Flashing Beacon (RRFB) is considered an important new device for improving pedestrian safety at uncontr olled, multi-lane crosswalks. The RRFB device is a pedestrian-activated beacon system located at the roadside below side-mounted pedestrian crosswalk signs. Design Example Design Summary The RRFB enhances the flashing beacon by replacing the slow flashing incandescent lamps with rap id flashing LED lamps. The lights can be activated either by a push-button or with remote pedestrian detection. They can be solar-powered. This treatment has received interim, blanket approval for use in California (Caltrans must be notified of any installation). Table 17: Pedestrian Hybrid Beacon Discussion The Pedestrian Hybrid Beacon, also known as the High -intensity Activated Crosswalks (HAWK), provide protected pedestrian crossing at locations via a red signal indication. This treatment is not widely used, but is included in the Federal and CA MUTCD, with a warrant for use. Design Example Design Summary HAWKs are used in circumstances with high vehicle speeds as well as a high demand for pedestrian crossings . The device combines the beacon flasher with a traffic signal to generate a higher driver yield rate. They are pedestrian activated and will display a yellow indication t o warn vehicles, then a solid red light. While pedestrians are crossing, the driver s ees a flashing red light in a “wig wag” pattern until the pedestrian clearance phase has ended, then returns to a dark signal. Table 18: Grade Separated Crossing Discussion A grade-separated pedestrian crossing provides a complete separation of pedestrians from vehicles through a pedestrian -only overpass or underpass (generally bicycles are permitted as well). Grade separations are a tool to help overcome barriers and help pedestrians conne ct to sidewalks, off-road trails and paths. They should be used where topography is supportive and no other pedestrian facility is available. Design Example Design Summary Grade separated crossings should be constructed within the most direct path of a pedestrian. They should ha ve visual appeal and entrances that are visible so pedestrians feel safe and not isolated from others. Because they can be costly, grade separated crossings should only be used in instances with unsafe vehicle speeds and volumes or no convenient substitute for the pedestrian. Table 19: Leading Pedestrian Interval Discussion Leading pedestrian interval (LPI) treatments enhance the visibility and convenience of pedestrian crossings at traffic signals by beginning the pedestrian phase before the vehicle green phase in the same direction. This allows the pedestrian to enter the crosswalk before vehicles advance, and to be in a highly visible position before vehicles begin right or permissive left turns. Design Example Design Summary Leading pedestrian intervals are an enhanced pedestrian treatment that gives pedestrians a walk indication while other approa ches are red to prevent advancing. Crossing with this “head start” allows pedestrians to be more visible to motorists appro aching an intersection. The following best practices should be used:  Install at locations with heavy right turn vehicle volumes as well as frequent pedestrian crossings.  Ensure vehicles are stopped for two to four seconds while pedestrians are allowed to b egin crossing. Table 20: Pedestrian Friendly Signal Timing and Countdown Discussion Signal timing typically favors vehicle travel. However, in areas with high pedestrian activity, signal timing ca n be enhanced to meet the needs of pedestrians. The walk interval of a pedestrian phase is, at a minimum, four to seven seconds, followed by a pedestrian cleara nce interval, called the “flash don’t walk” (FDW) phase. The FDW phase uses a standard rate to d etermine the amount of time provided for the pedestrian to clear an intersection. It is determined by dividing the width of an intersection by the pedestrian walking speed. The solid “Don’t Walk” sign typically co incides with the yellow vehicle signal. The pedestrian timing is an important element to traffic signals since the green time for cars might not be sufficient for pedest rians to cross an intersection. Pedestrian heads include "Walk" and "Don't Walk" displays, which are figures of a walking person and a hand. When the "Don't Walk" display (hand) is flashing pedestrians should not start to cross, and those who are already crossing should continue. A steady "Don't Walk" dis play indicates that just a few seconds remain before opposing vehicles are given a green signal. The 'count down' pedestrian head supplements the typical display with a countdown timer that shows the number of seconds left before the steady hand is displayed, giving both pedestrians and drivers notice a bout how much time remains. These are considered a best practice for pedestrian safety. Pedestrian push buttons are used to activate pedestrian recall at actuated signals. When the pedestrian recall is enabled, bo th the vehicular and pedestrian timing for phase are active. At busy pedestrian intersections, the signal timing may be set to always include the pedestrian timing for the active phase. Design Example Design Summary The standard for walking speeds at signalized intersections has changed from 4 feet per second to 3.5 feet per second to more accurately reflect the average pedestrian walking speed and aging population. A slower walking rate of 2.8 feet per second (MUTCD 4E.10(CA)) is recommended in areas with a high number of children, older adults, or disabled pedestrians crossing. Pre-timed signals may warrant a longer walk phase in order to accommodate pedestrians. This should ultimately be at the discretio n of the City’s traffic engineer. Table 21: Pedestrian Friendly Signal Phasing Discussion Left- and right-turning vehicles are required to yield to pedestrians in the crosswalk on permissive phases. The following signal phasing sequences can enhance pedestrian accommodation and safety:  Protected left turns allow vehicles turning l eft an exclusive phase, ultimately eliminating conflicts between pedestrians in the crosswalk.  Split phasing allows opposing intersection approaches to receive a dedicated phase. Pedestrian phases for parallel crosswalks will be activated with each adjacent vehicle phase. This phasing plan can reduce intersection capacity, since cycle lengths are typically long, but eliminates conflicts with pedestrians and opposing left-turns. Design Example Example of a Pedestrian Signal Head Mounted on a Signal Pole Design Summary At intersections with heavy vehicle traffic volumes, providing convenient and comfortable pedestrian crossings must be balanc ed with the need to maintain intersection capacity and operations for automobiles. In these instances, it is imp ortant to incorporate additional treatments to enhance pedestrian visibility, such as special striping or signage. If a permitted left turn phase is used, the traffic and pedestrian signal should be located next to each other on the corner pole (as depicted in the picture) to attract driver’s attention. A flashing yellow arrow may be considered. Where possible, protected left t urns are always preferable for pedestrian safety. Table 22: Bus Stop Accessibility Discussion The specific location and design of a bus stop within the right-of-way and pedestrian facilities are important for bus operations and accessibility. The best bus stops are operationally safe and efficient for both buses and passengers. The stop should be locate d to cause the minimum interference with pedestrian, bicycle and other vehicle movements. Bus stops should be located adjacent to the street curb in most cases, or at a bus bulb along busy transit routes or at transit centers and hubs. Minimum sidewalk and clearance is required for ADA accessibility. Ideally, bus stops also include a bus shelter for protection from sun or rain, and other amenities; at minimum they should include a bus stop pole and ADA compliant bench. Design Example Design Summary Avoid bus turnouts/pullouts where possible because this slows operations w hen buses must pull out of and back into traffic. Bus stops must be long enough for the buses that use them so the buses do not hang into the travel lane when pulling in to th e bus stop. Buses must stop flush with the curb to provide ADA compliant access to passengers with disabilities. Bus stop dimensions should be coordinated with Wheels or appropriate transit agencies. For a far side stop, this length addresses:  Bus clearance from the crosswalk: Minimum 5 feet for pedestrian safety  Stopping space for bus: 60 feet (length of articulated bus)  "Take off" space for bus to leave stop: 15 feet  Total Length- Far Side Stop for one bus: 80 feet Near side stops require slightly more space. The recommended length is 90 feet, divided up as follows:  Approach space for the bus: 15 feet  Stopping space for the bus: 65 feet  Bus clearance from crosswalk 10 feet  Total length- Near Side Stop for one bus: 90 feet Sidewalks at bus stops must be free of clutter, and curbs must be painted red. ADA Accessibility Guidelines (ADAAG) specifies that the paved boarding/alighting area must be at least eight feet deep from the curb and five feet along the curb. ADAAG also requires a minimum path of travel (sidewalk) clear of obstructions to and from this boarding area at lea st three feet wide. Many cities use four feet or even six feet as their standard. In most cases bus shelters should be placed at the back of the sidewalk in order to maintain pedestrian travel and meet ADA p ath of travel requirements. Exceptions are made and placement must consider security and line of sight at intersections and driveways. Concrete bus pads are recommended at bus stop locations, to prevent and minimize pavement wear and maintain level grade at lo cations with heavy bus traffic. The elements of this section are based on research from the National Cooperative Highway Research Program (NCHRP) and the Federal Highway Administration (FHWA), in addition to other best practice guidance. This includes three topic areas:  Crosswalk Fundamentals, which provides an overview of statewide policy and guidance on marked and unmarked crosswalks  Uncontrolled Crosswalks, which provides considerations for siting, enhancing, and removing unsignalized crosswalks, and  Controlled Crosswalks, which provides information on crosswalks at signalized intersections. Pedestrian crossing and right-of-way laws vary state to state, and are often a source of driver or pedestrian uncertainty and confusion. This section outlines the types of crosswalks, California laws related to crosswalks, and the steps the City may take in identifying appropriate locations to mark (and potentially enhance) a crosswalk. Crosswalks are primarily classified by three characteristics: 1) Whether they are marked (demarcated with striping on the street) or unmarked (no striping) 2) Whether they are controlled (by a traffic signal or stop-sign) or uncontrolled (with no intersection control) 3) Whether they are located at an intersection (where two streets meet) or mid-block (between intersections) The following section outlines California’s laws related to crosswalks. Additionally, based on pedestrian safety and crosswalk marking research, some types of crosswalks are safer than others in certain contexts. This follow sections provide guidance on why, where, and how to treat crosswalks at controlled and uncontrolled locations, respectively, based on this recent state of the practice research. In California, a legal crosswalk exists where a sidewalk meets a street, regardless of the presence of markings (i.e., with or without striping to denote the crosswalk). Pedestrians may legally cross any street at any location, except at unmarked locations between immediately adjacent signalized crossings, or where crossing is expressly prohibited. Marked crosswalks reinforce the location and legitimacy of a pedestrian crossing. Vehicles must yield the right-of-way to pedestrians in marked or unmarked crosswalks. At other legal crossing locations, the pedestrian must yield the right-of-way to motorists. These legal statues are contained in the California Vehicle Code (CVC) as follows:  Section 275 defines a legal crosswalk as:  That portion of a roadway included within the prolongation or connection of the boundary lines of sidewalks at intersections where the intersecting roadways meet at approximately right angles, except the prolongation of such lines from an alley across a street.  Any portion of a roadway distinctly indicated for pedestrian crossing by lines or other markings on the surface.  Section 21950 describes right-of-way at a crosswalk:  The driver of a vehicle shall yield the right-of-way to a pedestrian crossing the roadway within any marked crosswalk or within any unmarked crosswalk at an intersection.  Section 21955 describes where pedestrians may not cross a street:  Between adjacent intersections controlled by traffic control signal devices or by police officers, pedestrians shall not cross the roadway at any place except in a crosswalk. Sidewalks and crosswalks are essential links within a pedestrian network. Whether commuting, running an errand, exercising, or wandering, pedestrians need safe and convenient crossing opportunities to reach their destinations. A marked crosswalk has four (4) primary functions: 1. To create reasonable expectations where pedestrians may cross a roadway 2. To improve predictability of pedestrian actions and movement 3. To channel pedestrians to designated crossing locations (often selected for their optimal sight distance) 4. To establish a legal midblock crossing location between adjacent signalized intersections. Marked crosswalks offer the following advantages:  They help pedestrians find their way across complex intersections  They can designate the shortest path  They can direct pedestrians to locations of best sight distance  They can re-assure pedestrians of their legal right to cross a roadway at an intersection or mid-block crossing This last point is important. The California Vehicle Code gives the right of way to pedestrians at any marked or unmarked crosswalk (as noted above), but the law is not always obeyed by road users, including both drivers and pedestrians. Drivers fail to yield the right of way without the visual cue of a marked crosswalk. Pedestrians also do not always know the right-of-way law, and will either wait for a gap in traffic, or assert their right-of-way by stepping into the roadway. Strategies for this challenge are discussed in the Education and Enforcement section of this document. The identification of candidate locations for marked crosswalks involves two steps. The first step is to locate the places people would like to cross the street. These locations are called pedestrian desire lines, which represent the most desirable, and typically most direct, crossings. Pedestrian desire lines are influenced by elements of the roadway network, such as transit stops, and nearby land uses (homes, schools, parks, trails, commercial centers, etc.). The second step in identifying candidate locations for marked crosswalks is to identify where people can cross safely. Of all road users, pedestrians have the highest risk of injury in a collision because they are the least protected. This section presents best practices for the installation of marked crosswalks at uncontrolled intersections and mid-block locations. Uncontrolled crossings require additional consideration during planning and design since traffic signals and stop-signs are not provided to require motorists to stop – they must recognize the pedestrian and yield accordingly. Thus, providing appropriate enhancements to improve the visibility and safety of pedestrians crossing the street at an uncontrolled location is critical. Several studies of pedestrian safety at uncontrolled crossings have been completed, from which conflicting research had emerged. Studies conducted in San Diego in the 1970s showed that pedestrian collision risk at marked, uncontrolled crosswalks was greater than at unmarked crossings. This led many cities to remove marked crosswalks, as they were suspected of providing a false sense of security that drivers would yield to pedestrians in the crosswalk. However, as a more recent and comprehensive 2002 study by the Federal Highway Administration (FHWA) found that marked crosswalks, when appropriately designed with visibility enhancements, were not inherently less safe than unmarked locations. The research found that context matters and that appropriate selection of visibility enhancements is tantamount. As summarized in above, two key steps are involved in identifying candidate locations for marked crosswalks: 1. Identify pedestrian desire lines 2. Identify places where people can cross safely Once candidate locations are identified, an engineering evaluation is typically conducted to determine if a marked crosswalk should be installed at an uncontrolled or mid-block location, and if so, what enhancements beyond striping should be included in the design. Marked crossings may be considered where all of the following occur:  Sufficient demand exists to justify the installation of a crosswalk (see Demand Considerations below)  Sufficient sight distance as measured by stopping sight distance calculations exists and/or sight distance will be improved prior to crosswalk marking  No other safety considerations preclude a marked crosswalk Uncontrolled and mid-block crossings should be identified as a candidate for marking with a demonstrated need for a crosswalk. Engineering judgment will ultimately be used to select locations appropriate for a marked, uncontrolled crossing. At uncontrolled locations, enhanced treatments beyond striping and signing may be needed for marked crosswalks under the following conditions:  Multi-lane streets (three or more lanes); or  Two-lane streets with daily traffic volumes (ADT) greater than 12,000; or  Streets with posted speed limit exceeding 30 miles per hour 2 Additional funding sources should be identified as needed for these enhancements. Failing to provide an enhanced crosswalk and/or removing a crosswalk should be an option of last resort. 2 Zegeer, et al. “Safety Effects of Marked Versus Unmarked Crosswalks at Uncontrolled Locations.” Federal Highway Administration, 2005. Crosswalks can be marked at intersections and mid-block points. Mid-block crossings play an important role for pedestrian access; without mid-block crossing locations, pedestrians may face the undesirable choice to detour to a controlled crossing location, detour to an intersection where it is legal to cross even if not controlled, or cross illegally (if the midblock crossing is between two signalized intersections). Where signals are spaced far apart (generally more than 600-800 feet), pedestrians may have to detour several minutes to a controlled crossing location. Pedestrians are more likely to wait for a gap in traffic and cross at an unmarked location, rather than travel a distance out of their way to find a marked crosswalk. Midblock locations may also offer and important safety benefit, as they have fewer potential vehicle-pedestrian conflict points than crosswalks at intersections. Controlled crosswalks are those that are provided at stop-controlled or signalized intersections. Generally, these crossings do not need enhancements beyond standard crosswalk markings (two parallel lines), as the traffic signal or stop-sign controls allocation of right-of-way. However, in some cases, such as in the Downtown, the City may consider providing enhanced crossings to create a sense of place or improved aesthetics. This chapter presents preferred and enhanced measures for pedestrian treatments at controlled locations to:  Improve the visibility of pedestrians to motorists and vice-versa  Communicate to motorists and pedestrians who has the right-of- way  Accommodate vulnerable populations such as the disabled, children, and the elderly  Reduce conflicts between pedestrians and vehicles  Reduce vehicular speeds at locations with potential pedestrian conflicts All treatments identified in this chapter are required or allowed by the standards and specifications in the California Manual on Uniform Traffic Control Devices (CA MUTCD). Preferred crossing treatments are identified as the basic pedestrian crossing improvements to be provided at stop-controlled and signalized intersections. It is recommended that new controlled intersections be designed with these treatments included; existing controlled intersections that require retrofits may be prioritized and upgraded as City funds become available. These treatments are based on recommended best practices in pedestrian safety:3  Mark crosswalks on all legs of the intersection unless it is not feasible due to safety reasons determined by engineering judgment  Provide advanced stop bars in advance of each crosswalk  Minimize the number of vehicle traffic lanes pedestrians must cross  Provide median refuge islands and thumbnails, as width and path of turn maneuvers allow  Remove sight-distance obstructions  Provide directional curb ramps for each crosswalk (e.g., two per corner)  Eliminate free right-turn slip lanes, where feasible 3 See America Walks Signalized Intersection Enhancements that Benefit Pedestrians http://americawalks.org/wp-content/upload/America-Walks-Signalized- Intersection-Enhancement-Report-Updated-8.16.2012.pdf (2012).  Locate bus stops on the far-side of the intersection  Minimize cycle lengths  Provide pedestrian signals on all legs at signalized intersections if feasible as per safety analysis and engineering judgment  Provide adequate pedestrian clearance intervals (crossing time) at signalized intersections At high volume pedestrian crossing locations or areas designated by the City as pedestrian zones, the City may desire to provide additional crosswalk enhancements at controlled intersections. These treatments provide additional enhancements to improve visibility between drivers and pedestrians by slowing traffic through geometric changes, providing signal timing or phasing modifications, or enhancing striping or signing to improve visibility. Tables 5 – 18 describe recommended crossing treatments and enhancements.

Bicycle Design Guidelines Bi c y c l e D e s i g n G u i d e l i n e s This section provides guidance and standards for the design of bikeways and bicycle parking facilities in the City of Dublin. The appropriate design of bicycle facilities is an integral component of encouraging the use of bicycles for commuting and recreational purposes. Good design affects the experience, enjoyment and comfort for bicyclists, and should ultimately provide the highest level of safety possible for all road and path users. The Dublin Bicycle and Pedestrian Master Plan envisions a convenient, comfortable, and safe comprehensive bicycle network that attracts bicyclists of all users for utilitarian and recreational trips. Bikeway planning and design in California typically relies on the guidelines and design standards established by Caltrans and documented the 2012 Highway Design Manual (HDM). The HDM bicycle design guidelines follow standards developed by the American Association of State Highway and Transportation Officials (AASHTO) and the Federal Highway Administration (FHWA) and identify specific design standards for various conditions and bikeway-to-roadway relationships. These standards provide a good framework for future implementation, but depending on the circumstances may not always be feasible given specific constraints and can often be expanded. Whatever the case may be, local jurisdictions must be protected from liability concerns so most agencies adopt the Caltrans or AASHTO standards as a minimum. This chapter presents design guidelines for the following topics: Class I Shared-Use Paths Minimum and Preferred Widths Shared-Use Path Features Crossing Treatments Path Amenities Class II A Bicycle Lanes Next to Parallel Parking Next to Angled Parking Without Parking On Hills Class II B Buffered Bicycle Lanes Striping Treatments Bicycle Markings and Intersections Treatments at Interchanges, Bridges and Tunnels Bicycle Loops and Detectors Class III A Bicycle Routes with Sharrows Bicycle Routes Sharrow Markings Bicycling Signage Wayfinding/Destination Signage Signs for Shared Roadways Bicycle Parking Maintenance Standards Utility Covers and Construction Plates Caltrans standards provide for three distinct types of bikeway facilities: Class I bicycle paths, Class II bicycle lanes, and Class III bicycle routes, as described in Table 23. In addition to those three classifications, the proposed Dublin network includes the Buffered Bicycle Lane classification (Class IIB). Each bikeway classification proposed in this plan is presented on Figures 1a and 1b. Bicycle design guidance is also provided in a variety of best practice documents, including the National Association of City and Transportation Official’s (NATCO) Urban Bikeway Design Guide, 2nd edition, and the AASHTO Guide for the Development of Bicycle Facilities (2012). Each document provide guidance on innovative facilities that are not directly addressed in the HDM, such as buffered bicycle lanes, conflict zone treatment, and physically separated bikeways. TABLE 23: DUBLIN BIKEWAYS CLASSIFICATIONS Class I: Shared Use Path These facilities provide a completely separate right-of-way and are designated for the exclusive use of bicycles and pedestrians with vehicle cross-flow minimized. Class II A: Bicycle Lane Bicycle lanes provide a restricted right-of-way and are designated for the use of bicycles for one-way travel with a striped lane on a street or highway. Bicycle lanes are generally a minimum of five feet wide. Vehicle parking and vehicle/pedestrian cross-flow are permitted. Class II B: Buffered Bicycle Lane Buffered bicycle lanes are conventional bicycle lanes that provide a restricted right-of-way with an added buffer space separating the bike lane from the adjacent vehicle lane and/or parking lane. The buffered area provides greater distance between bicyclists and parked cars and moving traffic and allows for bicyclists to pass one another within the bicycle lane without entering the vehicle lane. Buffered bicycle lanes are generally made up of a six foot wide bicycle lane and a two-foot wide buffer. The buffer is striped with two solid white lines with diagonal hatching or chevron markings within the buffer zone. Class III A: Bicycle Route with Sharrows These bikeways provide a right-of-way designated by signs or pavement markings for shared use with motor vehicles. These include sharrows or “shared-lane markings” to highlight the presence of bicyclists. 2 Figure 1a.

Class I bikeways are typically called bicycling paths, multi-use or shared use paths and are typically located along separate right-of-way such as creeks, canals, or rail lines and are completely separated from vehicle traffic. Cross traffic by motor vehicles should be minimized along bicycle paths to avoid conflicts. Bicycle paths can offer opportunities not provided by the road system by serving as both recreational areas and/or desirable commuter routes. According to the Caltrans and AASHTO standards, two-way bicycle paths should be ten feet wide under most conditions, with a minimum two-foot wide graded area on both sides. In constrained areas, an eight-foot wide path may be adequate. Bicycle paths are usually shared with pedestrians and if pedestrian use is expected to be significant, the path should be greater than ten feet, preferably twelve feet wide. Table 28 presents recommended Class I path widths. Where possible, bicycle paths should have an adjacent four-foot wide unpaved area to accommodate joggers. This jogging path should be placed on the side with the best view, such as adjacent to the waterfront or other vista, as shown on Figure 2. Decomposed granite, which is a better running surface for preventing injuries, is the preferred surface type for side areas and jogging path, while asphaltic concrete or Portland cement concrete should be used for the bicycle path. A yellow centerline stripe may be used to separate opposite directions of travel. A centerline strip is particularly beneficial to bicycle commuters who may use unlighted bicycle paths after dark. Sidewalks and meandering paths are usually not appropriate to serve as bicycle paths because they are primarily intended to serve pedestrians, generally do not meet Caltrans’ design standards, and do not minimize motor vehicle cross flows. Where a shared use path is parallel and adjacent to a roadway, there should be a five-foot or greater width separating the path from the edge of roadway, or a physical barrier of sufficient height should be installed. Side paths require appropriate intersection controls or additional conflict treatments at intersections and driveways. This may include the use of bicycle signals and protected turns for autos, for example.

Typical Class I Shared Use Path The following sections present typical design features found on Class I facilities. Bollards are not recommended. Where there is a demonstrated need for a physical barrier due to concerns regarding motorized vehicles accessing the pathway, for example split design treatment should be used. The California MUTCD discourages the use of bollards if other options are practical, and bollards are general not a preferred treatment for path design. The preferred option would be to split the path by direction to go around a small center landscape feature. Rather than one 8’ or 10’ trail, the trail would be split into two 4’ or 5’ paths. This feature not only narrows the trail and prevents vehicles from entering, but also introduces a lateral shift for cyclists, encouraging slower speeds in conflict zones. Bridges or undercrossings will be required wherever shared use paths cross creeks, waterways, major streets and limited access freeways. Crossings can utilize pre-fabricated bridges made from self-weathering steel with wood decks. Bridges should be a minimum of 8’ wide (between handrails) and preferably as wide as the approaching trails. Openings between railings should be 4” maximum. Railing height should be a minimum of 42” high. Fencing may be necessary on some shared use paths to prevent path users from trespassing on adjacent lands, or to protect the user from dangerous areasFences should maintain safety without compromising security. They should be tall enough to prevent trespassing, but they should maintain clear sight lights from the trail to the adjacent land uses. In areas where private residences are passed, privacy may be a concern. Screen fences should be used to maintain privacy of residents. Screen fences can be made of wood, concrete block or chain link if combined with vine planting. However, if fencing is used, there must be at least 2’ of lateral clearance from the edge of the bicycle path. Where curbs are present, curb ramps should be provided and be as wide as the entire path. Designs should also follow the most recent Public Right-of-Way Accessibility Guidelines (PROWAG) to provide universal accessibility. Shared-use path crossings come in many configurations, with many variables: the number of roadway lanes to be crossed, divided or undivided roadways, number of approach legs, the speeds and volumes of traffic, and traffic controls that range from uncontrolled to yield, stop or signal controlled. Each intersection is unique and requires engineering judgment to determine the appropriate intersection treatment. The safe and convenient passage of all modes through the intersection is the primary design objective. Regardless of whether a pathway crosses a roadway at an existing roadway intersection, or at a new midblock location, the principles that apply to general pedestrian safety at crossings (controlled and uncontrolled) are transferable to pathway intersection design. When shared use paths parallel roadways at intersections, the path should generally be assigned the same traffic control as the parallel roadway (i.e., if the adjacent roadway has a green signal, the path should also have a green/walk signal; if the parallel roadway is assigned the right-of-way with a stop or yield sign for the intersecting street, the path should also be given priority). Where right-turn conflicts are expected, protecting the right-turn phase, separating out the pedestrian phase, and/or adding a separate bicycle signal phase may be appropriate. At signalized intersections, if the parallel roadway has signals that are set to recall to green every cycle, the pedestrian signal heads for the path should generally be set to recall to walk. Where the signals for the parallel roadway are actuated, the path crossing will also need actuated bike detection and is required under CA MUTCD (Section 4D.105). The minimum required clearance interval for bicycles in the CA MUTCD is six seconds of initial start-up time plus 14.7 feet/second to finish the crossing (Section 4D.105 The USE PED SIGNAL sign should be used at shared use path crossings at signalized intersections. Pedestrian pushbuttons should be located within easy reach of both pedestrians and bicyclists, who should not have to dismount to reach the pushbutton.4 4 Per California Vehicle Code Sections 21200-21212 and Streets and Highway Code 885-886, 887-888.8, and 890-894.2, bicycles are generally prohibited from riding on sidewalks or in crosswalks. An exception to this is on marked crosswalks of multi- use paths. On-multi-use paths, bicyclists function as pedestrians at intersections by activating the pedestrian signal and waiting for the light to change in their favor. Signs on Paths Some jurisdictions have used STOP signs and BICYCLISTS MUST DISMOUNT signs to regulate bicycle traffic on shared-use paths. These signs are generally ineffective and result in frequent violations and disregard for other types of path signage. Countdown pedestrian signals should be installed at all new signalized path crossings and retrofitted as signal heads are replaced. As required by the MUTCD, the walk signal for any path shall not conflict with a protected left- or right-turn interval. While bicyclists can benefit from the safe passage that pedestrian signals provide, bicycle signals are the preferred practice for a path crossing to address right-of-way issues. Consideration should be given to providing a leading pedestrian interval at path crossings (i.e., three seconds of green/walk signal time are given to path users before any potentially-conflicting motor vehicle movements are given a green signal). This allows pedestrians and bicyclists to have a head start into the roadway to become more visible to turning traffic. The figure on the previous page illustrates the preferred approach for a shared use path at a controlled intersection. Paths should cross at the intersection to encourage use of the intersection crossing and have path users in the location where they are most anticipated. In many cases, a path will be separated from a roadway by between 20 and 50 feet. Locating path crossings along these alignments (that is 20 to 50 feet away from the intersection) creates a condition where vehicles do not expect to encounter a path crossing and vehicles leaving the intersection are accelerating away from it when they cross the path crossing. For signalized pathway crossings, an advance loop detector within 100 feet of the intersection should be considered, so bicyclists can approach the intersection slowly but without having to stop. Bicycle signal heads permit an exclusive bicycle-only signal phase and movement at signalized intersections. This takes the form of a new signal head installed with red, amber and green indications for bicycle traffic only. Bicycle signals are an approved traffic control device in California, described in Part 4 and 9 of the CAMUTCD. Bicycle signal faces (at right) also have interim approval under the Federal MUTCD. Bicycle signals can be actuated with bicycle sensitive loop detectors, video detection or push buttons. The City of Dublin may install bicycle signals at intersections with heavy bicycle volumes, on bicycle paths adjacent to intersections where heavy bicycle traffic in the crosswalk may conflict with turning vehicles, or at three-legged intersections where bikes may enter or exit a bicycle path at the intersection. Bicycle signal warrants defined in Section 4.C of the CA MUTCD should be considered before installing a bicycle signal. The thresholds require bicycle volumes to exceed 50 per hour and vehicle volumes are greater than 1,000 vehicles per hour, or in locations that have a history of bicyclist-involved collisions (>2 in one calendar year), or in locations where a multi-use path intersects a roadway. At unsignalized or stop controlled locations, crossing design and placement should adhere to the Crosswalk Design Guidelines section of this document. Furnishings along a shared-use path should be concentrated at specific points to form gathering nodes. These nodes occur at intersections between different path types, special viewpoints, or at distinctive landscape features. Shared-use path support facilities consist of staging areas, seating and tables, weather-protection structures, drinking fountains, waste receptacles, fencing, bicycle racks, interpretive and directional signage and restrooms. Staging areas should be provided at path entrances. These areas should include basic information such as directional information and signage, bicycle parking, seating and waste receptacles. Restrooms, water fountains, and weather structures should be provided where practical and feasible. At path entrances where a substantial number of users are likely to drive, a parking lot should be provided; however, vehicle parking should be minimized to encourage non-motorized access to recreational facilities. Motor-vehicle scale street lights on travel lanes and intersections, often keeping the edge of the roadway and sidewalk areas in the dark. Pedestrian-scale lighting is street lighting at a lower height and placed to provide direct illumination of the path area. Lamp posts are spaced more frequently and at lower heights, approximately 10 to 16 feet in height. Pedestrian-scale lighting can improve safety at night time, allowing trails and paths to be illuminated. Such lighting is particularly important on paths and trails that connect to transit stations, for example, where bicyclists and pedestrians may be using the path after dark. Rest areas are portions of paths that are wide enough to provide wheelchair users and others a place to rest while on trails without blocking continuing traffic. Rest areas are more effective when placed at intermediate points, scenic lookouts, or near other trail amenities. Most rest areas will have seating, shade, a place to rest bicycles, and waste receptacles. On longer paths, restrooms and/or water fountains may be desirable where feasible. Benches provide people of all ages and abilities a place to sit and rest along trails. Seating should be placed away from the path, at least 3 feet from the trail edge, to allow room for people to sit with outstretched legs. An area adjacent to the bench should be able to accommodate a wheelchair. Trash receptacles should be installed along bicycle paths at regular intervals, as well as at rest areas, path entrances, and seating areas, to encourage proper waste disposal. This section includes guidelines for Class II A bicycle lanes along roadways and at intersections. Class II A bicycle lanes provide a designated space within the roadway for bicyclists to ride. Most bicyclists benefit by having a lane that is separate from motor vehicle traffic. Conventional bicycle lanes are described in this section; the following section on Class II B addresses buffered bicycle lanes. In a mostly built-out location such as Dublin, adding to the bicycle network is mostly accomplished through retrofitting existing roadways. Adding bicycle facilities to existing streets may be done through right-of- way reallocation (narrowing or removal of vehicle travel lanes) or widening the right-of-way to accommodate additional space needed. To accommodate bicycle lanes, vehicle lanes may be narrowed to a minimum of 10 feet of most City roadways; however, transit agencies prefer that any roadway with bus routes have 11-foot travel lanes. The following pages illustrate minimum and preferred dimensions for on- street bicycle lanes under the following conditions:  Adjacent to Parallel Parking  Adjacent to Angled Parking  Without Parking  On a Hill The figures on the following pages illustrate the preferred widths for bicycle lanes in the following situations: Conventional Bicycle Lane Standards: Bicycle lanes should be designed to meet Caltrans standards, which require a minimum width of 4 feet with no gutter pan; otherwise a minimum of 5 feet should be provided. The preferred bicycle lane width is 6 feet. Where drainage or other obstructions constrict clearance between the vehicle travel lane and storm drains, designers should take care to maintain a 2.5-foot clear longitudinal surface, free from drainage grates and other obstructions in order to give the cyclist adequate width to ride. Where present, the direction of the drain gate should be perpendicular to the bicyclist’s path of travel. Signs that say BICYCLISTS WRONG WAY may be used on the back of bicycle lane signs or on separate posts to discourage wrong way riding. Pavement stencils should be reflectorized and be capable of maintaining an appropriate skid resistance under rainy or wet conditions to maximize safety for bicyclists. The minimum coefficient of friction should be 0.30. Thermoplastic can meet all of these requirements. It is optimized when the composition has been modified with crushed glass to increase the coefficient of friction and the maximum thickness is no larger than 100 mils (2.5 mm). The Caltrans standard for placement of bicycle lane stencils states that markings should be on the far side of each intersection and at other locations as desired. Generally, bicycle lane markings should be provided at transition points, particularly where the bicycle lane disappears and reappears, as it transitions from curb side to the left side of the right-turn lane. Otherwise, place them at least every 500 feet or once per block. Symbols shown in the figures are for illustration purposes and should not be used as spacing or placement guidelines Bicycle lane markings should continue at least up to the intersection approach, and continued skip-stripe markings through the intersection are preferred. Details about innovative intersection treatments are included in this section. Key Considerations:  Bicycle lanes adjacent to parallel parking need to provide adequate space for bicyclists to ride out of the “door-zone”. Riding in the door-zone presents a risk to cyclists, as the area is adjacent to the parking lane where, if a car door was opened, it may hit the cyclist.  Bicycle lane stencils and arrows should be marked at the start of every block, then as needed but not less than every 500 feet. Additional stencils and arrows may be placed for wayfinding.  Parking “T’s” may be used in lieu of the 4-inch parking stripe, if preferred.  Bicycle lane signs (R81 CA) may be provided along the edge of the travel way to reinforce presence of the bicycle lane.  BICYCLISTS WRONG WAY (R-51b) signs may be used on the back of bicycle lane signs or on separate posts to discourage wrong way riding.  Treatment may be combined with other supplemental treatments such as colorized pavement, conflict zone and/or intersection enhancements described in Bicycle Lanes at Intersections.  See Bicycle Lanes at Intersections Section for guidance on striping bicycle lanes at intersections and turn lane treatment options. Resources:  California Highway Design Manual  AASHTO Guide for the Design of Bicycle Facilities Cost: Key Considerations:  If no gutterpan is present, bicycle lanes should be a minimum of 4 feet wide.  With a gutterpan, bicycle lanes should be a minimum of 5 feet, preferred 6 feet.  Bicycle lanes adjacent to the curb should provide adequate width for bicyclists to avoid obstructions (i.e., drainage grates, sewer covers, etc.). A continuous clear riding zone of 2.5’ (minimum) is recommended.  Consider providing “No Parking: Bike Lane” signs (R7-9) and painting curb red to reduce likelihood of parking in the bicycle lane.  Bicycle lane stencils and arrows should be marked at the start of every block, then as needed but not less than every 500 feet. Additional stencils and arrows may be placed for wayfinding.  Bicycle lane signs (R81 CA) may be provided along the edge of the travel way to reinforce presence of the bicycle lane.  BICYCLISTS WRONG WAY (R-51b) signs may be used on the back of bicycle lane signs or on separate posts to discourage wrong way riding.  Treatment may be combined with other supplemental treatments such as colorized pavement, conflict zone and/or intersection enhancements described in Bicycle Lanes at Intersections.  See Bicycle Lanes at Intersections Section for guidance on striping bicycle lanes at intersections and turn lane treatment options. Resources:  California Highway Design Manual  AASHTO Guide for the Design of Bicycle Facilities In most cases, bicycle lanes should be provided on both sides of a two- way street; however, in cases where roadways have steep grades and limited right-of-way, a bicycle lane in the uphill direction and shared lane markings (sharrows) in the downhill direction would be considered acceptable (AASHTO, 2012). This facilitates slower bicycle travel speeds in the uphill direction. Key Considerations:  On narrower roadways, shared lane markings may be placed in the center of the lane to discourage vehicles from passing cyclists  BIKES ALLOWED FULL USE OF LANE (MUTCD R4-11) signage may be appropriate on downhill segments to supplement shared lane markings.  Treatment is most appropriate on streets with posted speed limits of 25 mph or lower.  Bicycle lane stencils and arrows should be marked at the start of every block, then as needed but not less than every 500 feet. Additional stencils and arrows may be placed for wayfinding or where motorist compliance is expected to be low  Bicycle lane signs (R81 CA) may be provided along the edge of the travelway to reinforce presence of the bicycle lane.  BICYCLISTS WRONG WAY (R-51b) signs may be used on the back of bicycle lane signs or on separate posts to discourage wrong way riding. Resources:  California Highway Design Manual  AASHTO Guide for the Design of Bicycle Facilities Some cyclists are comfortable riding next to vehicle traffic; however, the close proximity to automobiles may discourage new riders from bicycling, especially on high volume or high speed roadways. Thus, many cities have addressed this barrier by using a painted buffer zone that provides additional separation between automobiles and bicyclists in order to increase cyclists comfort levels. Buffers may be provided on either/both the travel lane and on-street parking side of the bike lane. Where space constraints do not allow for buffers on both sides, care should be taken to assess the risk of speed differentials between vehicles and bicyclists and parking turnover and door-zone risks to determine which side of the bike lane receives the buffer treatment. Buffered bike lanes are considered ”allowable” treatments within current bike design standards outlined in the California Manual on Uniform Traffic Control Devices. The guidance for appropriate striping of these facilities, however, has been limited and is somewhat implicit within transportation design standards. Recommended practices for striping buffered bike lanes are provided in some guidance documents, including the NACTO Urban Bikeway Design Guide, as well as several other international bike design guides. Potential conflicts between vehicle codes and striping standards has led some agencies to hesitate in applying buffered bike lane treatments. The California MUTCD describes the appropriate striping for buffer treatments in Chapter 3D on preferential lane markings. This section outlines what striping patterns should be used to allow and prohibit vehicles from crossing a buffer. The California MUTCD differs from the federal MUTCD in its interpretation of this section (Figure 3A-113(CA), Detail 44 and Figure 3D-2), where in California:  A single dotted white lane line = Permitted crossing  Solid parallel white lane lines = Prohibited crossing  Solid double parallel white lane lines = Prohibited crossing Buffer zones are typically striped with solid parallel white lane lines, with an option to add diagonal or chevron markings within the buffer area. The following page depicts recommended striping and dimensions for buffered bike lanes. Since crossing the buffer zone with such striping is technically prohibited in California, one of two striping patterns may be used to allow vehicles to cross the buffer zone to turn or to access on- street parking:  One of the two buffer lane lines may be dotted  The buffer may be consolidated to a single lane line Buffered Lanes and Turn Lanes: The California Vehicle Code (CVC) addresses requirements for turning across double parallel white lane lines (section 21460). This has been a point of confusion for bicyclists and drivers who interpret this provision as a restriction of their ability to cross the buffer zone to make a turn or park. However, buffer treatments are generally striped with parallel white lines (two lines), as opposed to double parallel white lines (four lines). More details about conventional and buffered bike lanes and turn lanes are included in the Intersection section below, which includes an illustration of buffered bike lanes at right turn lanes. Example buffered bike lane with chevron-style buffer zone, which breaks at intersections to denote vehicle crossing locations. Image source: NACTO. Austin, TX. Example striping that complies with California guidance to dash buffer to indicate crossing the buffer is allowed for turning or parking maneuvers. Image source: Fehr & Peers. San Jose, California (2012). Key Considerations:  Buffer should be a minimum of 18 inches; preferred width of 3 to 4 feet.  Buffer placement may be on either or both vehicle travel lane or on-street parking side. Where space constraints do not allow for buffers on both sides, care should be taken to assess the risk of speed differentials between vehicles and bicyclists and parking turnover and door-zone risks to determine which side of the bike lane receives the buffer treatment.  Inside buffer lane line should be dashed where vehicle cross- traffic (turn maneuvers or on-street parking) is expected.  Diagonal cross-hatching or chevron markings should be used where the buffer zone is 2 feet or wider.  Where the buffer space is wider than 4 feet and through traffic is allowed on both sides of the buffer, it is recommended that chevron markings (with the point of the “v” facing oncoming traffic) be used to discourage drivers from traveling in the buffer space and remind them that travel is permitted on both sides of the buffer space.  Bicycle lane stencils and arrows should be marked at the start of every block, then as needed but not less than every 500 feet. Additional stencils and arrows may be placed for wayfinding.  Bicycle lane signs (R81 CA) may be provided along the edge of the travelway to reinforce presence of the bicycle lane.  BICYCLISTS WRONG WAY (R-51b) signs may be used on the back of bicycle lane signs or on separate posts to discourage wrong way riding. Resources:  California Highway Design Manual  AASHTO Guide for the Design of Bicycle Facilities Nationally, the majority of collisions between motorists and bicyclists occur at intersections. While design guidance for bicycle lanes acknowledges that intersections are often constrained by the desire for additional turn lanes for autos and allows engineers to drop bicycle lanes at intersections, this practice is not recommended. There are several engineering treatments to significantly reduce conflicts at intersections, as summarized on the following pages. Bicycle lane pockets between right-turn lanes and through lanes should be provided where available lane width allows. Key Considerations:  Bicycle lane pockets should be provided to the left of right-turn only lanes.  If a shared through/right-turn vehicle lane is provided, no bicycle lane pocket should be marked. If vehicle volumes require striping of a through/right-turn lane, consider use of shared lane markings to denote preferred path of bicycle travel.  The maximum recommended turn pocket length for right-turn lanes adjacent to bicycle lanes is 150’ to avoid excessively long turn pockets, which leave bicyclists exposed, riding between two lanes of traffic.  Treatment may be combined with other supplemental treatments such as colorized pavement, conflict zone and/or intersection enhancements described in Bicycle Lanes at Intersections.  Bicycle detection should be provided per CA MUTCD.

Resources:  California Highway Design Manual  AASHTO Guide for the Design of Bicycle Facilities Colored bicycle lanes can be used in high-conflict areas to alert motorists to the presence of bicyclists and bicycle lanes. Dublin has installed continuous green bicycle lanes on Golden Gate Drive in Downtown Dublin. Other cities including San Francisco, Portland, and New York City have successfully experimented with colored bicycle lanes at highway interchanges and locations where drivers have otherwise encroached on bicycle lanes. Key Considerations  Green can consist of colored paint or thermoplastic  FHWA Interim Approval outlines specifications for green pigment  Use of continuous green colored bicycle lanes, conflict zones, and striping through intersections has interim approval under at the federal and state levels, with green as the preferred color. More information is available on the federal MUTCD website: http://mutcd.fhwa.dot.gov/resources/interim_approval/ia14/inde x.htm  Use of green colored pavement outside of bicycle lanes and conflict zones is not currently allowed under the interim approval and is considered experimental; though some cities, such as San Francisco, have used green pavement to provide wayfinding at intersections and to indicate the preferred path of travel, often with shared lane markings, as shown at bottom right. Resources:  FHWA Interim Approval for Green Pavement: http://mutcd.fhwa.dot.gov/resources/interim_approval/ia14/inde x.htm  FHWA Bicycle Facilities Currently Approved and Under Experiment: http://www.fhwa.dot.gov/environment/bicycle_pedestrian/guida nce/design_guidance/mutcd_bike.cfm This “skip-striping” directs cyclists to the bicycle lane and increases the visibility of cyclists to motorists traveling through the intersection. To identify that the markings are for bicyclists, the City of Dublin may consider striping chevrons or sharrows through the intersection as well. Key Considerations  Use at intersections with moderate to high bicycle volumes or where bicyclists may need to reposition themselves to continue in the bicycle lane  Use across right-turn pockets, where on-street parking is provided prior to the intersection or where the intersection widens to accommodate a right-turn pocket  Use to delineate bicycle-bus conflict zone through bus stop areas  Recommend use of green pavement with skip-striping in Dublin  Generally do not use across right-turn only lanes, as indicate at right  Use 4 foot skip-strip with 8 foot space for green skip-striping  Include BEGIN RIGHT-TURN LANE YIELD TO BIKES sign (R4-4) and RIGHT LANE MUST TURN RIGHT (R3-7R) with skip-striping at right-turn pockets  Skip-striping should begin a minimum of 50 feet before the intersection. On high volume roadways, dotted lines are recommended 100 feet before the intersection Resources:  FHWA Interim Approval for Green Pavement: http://mutcd.fhwa.dot.gov/resources/interim_approval/ia14/inde x.htm  FHWA Bicycle Facilities Currently Approved and Under Experiment: http://www.fhwa.dot.gov/environment/bicycle_pedestrian/guida nce/design_guidance/mutcd_bike.cfm Bicycling and walking routes at highway interchanges require special treatment to ensure the safety and comfort for all road users. Fast moving traffic, highway on and off-ramps and wide travel lanes make interchanges difficult areas for bicyclists and pedestrians to navigate. Key Considerations  Travel lanes should be reduced from 12 feet or more to 10 or 11 feet to slow motor vehicle speeds and provide additional space for bicycle lanes and sidewalks.  Class II A or B bicycle lanes should be striped continuously across overpasses and underpasses wherever feasible  Minimize distances in which bicyclists are required to travel between two moving traffic lanes  Use skip stripes to delineate bicycle path travel through conflict zones  Consider colored bicycle lanes in conflict areas  Avoid high-speed, uncontrolled movements. A tight diamond configuration with square off and on-ramps to encourage slower motor vehicle speeds and is recommended  Avoid multiple right-turn lanes on cross-street. Dedicated right turn lanes create a conflict for cyclists traveling through an intersection that must cross the right turn lane to continue to ride straight. Where possible, retain single right-turn lanes, even if greater than 200 feet. Where possible, avoid right-turn lanes greater than 200 feet. Resources: ITE has developed best practices guidelines for bicycle treatments at interchanges, as outlined in the draft publication A Recommended Practice for Accommodating Bicycles and Pedestrians at Interchanges. Each type of interchange design calls for unique design details. Two examples are illustrated here: Bike lane at a long dual right lane on-ramp Bike lane at a short single right lane on-ramp. As new signals are installed or major updates occur to existing signalized locations, bicycle detection is required to be installed on the bikeway system for all actuated movements of the signal. Bicycle detection may be provided by the following methods:  Loop detectors  Bicycle push buttons  Video  Infrared Key Considerations Decisions regarding type of passive detection to use should be coordinated with upgrading of auto detection on a citywide basis. If the City installs newer technologies such as video and infrared detection for automobiles, these should be calibrated to detect bicyclists as well. These technologies may have higher startup costs but may be more cost effective over time with reduced maintenance costs. Where loop detectors are installed, they should be located in the approach bicycle lane 100 feet in advance of the intersection as well as at the intersection itself. The upstream loop should not be used when it would be triggered by right-turning vehicles. When the upstream loop is triggered, the green time should be extended for the cyclist to reach the loop at the stop bar, at which point the signal should allow the cyclist to clear the intersection. The time that a bicyclist needs to cross an intersection is longer than the time needed for a motorist, but shorter than the time needed for pedestrians. In general, while the normal yellow interval is usually adequate for bikes, an adjustment to the minimum green should be considered, particularly for bicyclists entering from side streets. Sections 4.12.4 and 4.12.5 of the AASHTO Guide for the Development of Bicycle Facilities and Section 4D.105 (CA) of the California MUTCD include detailed equations for bicycle signal timing and clearance intervals. Pushbuttons are appropriate when other methods of detection are not feasible, particularly at narrow tunnels or where multi- use paths cross signalized intersections. A bicycle pushbutton/pad/bar is similar to those used for pedestrians, but installed in a location most convenient for bicycles and actuates a signal timing most appropriate for bicyclists. The sign plate located above the pushbutton/pad/bar indicates that it is for use by bicyclists. The larger the surface of the button, the easier it is for cyclists to use, thus a push pad is preferential to a pushbutton, and a push bar is preferential to a push pad, as it can be actuated without removing one’s hands from the handlebars. Advantages of the pushbutton are that it is typically less expensive than other means of detection, and it allows for different signal timing for different user needs. The disadvantages of the pushbutton are that the location of the pushbutton usually does not allow the cyclist to prepare for through or left-turning movements at the intersection, and that it forces the bicyclist to stop completely in order to actuate the signal. Figure 3. Placement of In-Pavement Bicycle Detectors at Intersections Class III bicycle routes are intended to provide continuity throughout a bikeway network and are primarily identified with signage. Bicycle routes are shared facilities with motorists on roadways. Bicycle routes can be used to connect discontinuous segments of a Class I or Class II bikeway, typically on low volume roadways or where right-of-way constraints do not allow for dedicated bikeways and speed differentials between bicycle and motor vehicle traffic are low. Minimum widths for bicycle routes are not presented in the Highway Design Manual, as the acceptable width is dependent on many factors. Table 29 presents recommended average daily traffic (ADT) and speed thresholds for bicycle routes. In the Dublin Bicycle and Pedestrian Plan, California HDM Class III Bicycle Routes are designated Class IIIA Bicycle Routes with Shared Lane Markings (sharrows), as the minimum standard for bicycle routes in Dublin includes the use of sharrow markings and “BIKES MAY USE FULL LANE” signage, which are described below. TABLE 25: RECOMMENDED GUIDELINES FOR CLASS IIIA FACILITIES Curb Lane Width (in feet) Average Daily Traffic (ADT) Travel Speed 12’ arterial; 11’ collector, no minimum on local streets Under 5,000 vehicles Under 25 mph 14’ 5,000 – 20,000 23-35 mph 15’ Over 20,000 Over 35 mph (Class III facilities are permitted but not recommended on streets with travel speeds over 35 mph) Source: Fehr & Peers, 2013. Shared lane markings (sharrows) are pavement markings that indicate a shared lane for bicycles and vehicles, and recommend appropriate positioning for bicyclists away from the “door zone” of parked cars. Sharrows reinforce the potential presence of bicycles within the travel lane, and indicate to all users that bicyclists are allowed to ride in the center of the lane where there is not adequate space to allow for safe side-by-side travel of both vehicles and bicycles. Sharrows are typically used to enhance Class III bicycle routes. Sharrows are especially useful on traffic calmed streets where the bicycle- vehicle speed differential is low, on streets with insufficient space to accommodate a separate bike lane, where a gap may be filled in an existing network, and to designate safe positioning through an intersection. Sharrows may be used to direct through-traveling bicyclists to the outside of turning lanes, and to appropriately position bicyclists in the middle of a travel lane adjacent to front-in angled parking, where a traditional bike lane does not allow for safe visibility. Another potential application for sharrows is in high-conflict zones. Sharrows are approved by the Federal and California State guidance and are widely used. As they are still a relatively new bicycle treatment type, applications will likely change over time. Sharrows should not be used as a substitute for other separated bicycle facilities when warranted by on- road conditions and lane width. Sharrow pavement markings provide a reduced level of comfort compared to separated bicycle facilities, and are usually not appropriate on roads with speeds above 35 mph, though it is allowed under the CA MUTCD. “BICYCLES MAY USE FULL LANE” sign (R4-11) may be used in addition to the Share the Road Markings to inform road users that bicyclists might occupy the travel lane. These signs are included in the MUTCD, and they should be used included on Class IIIA facilities. Typical Sharrow placement Source: Ohio State University A “Share the Road” sign assembly (W11‐1 + W16‐ 1P) is intended to alert motorists that bicyclists may be encountered and that they should be mindful and respectful of them. However, the sign is not a substitute for appropriate geometric design measures that are needed to accommodate bicyclists. The sign should not be used to address reported operational issues, as the addition of this warning sign will not significantly improve bicycling conditions. The sign may be useful under certain limited conditions, such as at the end of a bicycle lane, or where a shared use path ends and bicyclists must share a lane with traffic. The sign may also be useful during construction operations, when bicyclists may need to share a narrower space than usual on a travel way. This sign should not be used to indicate a bicycle route. A fluorescent yellow‐green background can be used for this sign. Class IIIA Bicycle Routes with Sharrows are signed bicycle routes with sharrow markings centered on the travel lane. Key Considerations  Stripe sharrows on the center of the travel lane to promote single-file travel and reduce wear of the marking under vehicles’ tires  MUTCD guidance requires sharrow placement at a minimum distance of 11 feet from the curb in lanes adjacent to parallel parking, and four feet from the curb in lanes on streets with no on-street parking.  Place sharrows immediately after the intersection and not greater than every 250 feet, with spacing of 150 feet recommended  BICYCLES MAY USE FULL LANE sign (R4-11) should be used on all Class IIIA Bicycle Routes, with a minimum of 2 signs per block, including one sign located immediately after the intersection Resources:  NACTO Urban Bikeway Guide: http://nacto.org/cities-for- cycling/design-guide/bikeway-signing-marking/shared-lane- markings/ The 20102 CA MUTCD includes guidelines for wayfinding signage. These signs provide flexibility and may reduce costs for signing bicycle routes in urban areas where multiple routes intersect or overlap. The City of Oakland and West Contra Costa Transportation Advisory Committee (WCCTAC) wayfinding program provide examples of wayfinding signage that can be deployed at citywide scale or for particular kinds of uses, such as in downtown districts or adjacent to transit. Key Considerations:  Identify key destinations that require wayfinding, including regional trails, Downtown Dublin, and Dublin/Pleasanton BART Stations, and community destinations  Conduct a study to determine the location of key “decision- points”, where signs would need to be placed to give bicyclists and pedestrian advance warning of the route  Include time estimates for walking and biking, respectively, to each destination  Follow best practice guidance, such as the WCCTAC Transit Wayfinding Plan, to determine the type of sign to use for land use context and mode (bicyclist or pedestrian) Resources: City of Oakland In July 2009, the City of Oakland adopted a new system for bicycle wayfinding signage based on these new MUTCD sign standards, with the addition of the City of Oakland logo (see image, right). The green sign system includes three sign types:  Confirmation Signs: Confirm that a cyclist is on a designated bikeway. Confirmation signs are located mid-block or on the far side of intersections, and include destinations and distances  Turn Signs: Indicate where a bikeway turns from one street on to another street. Turn signs are located on the near side of intersections, and include directional arrows.  Decision Signs: Mark the junction of two or more bikeways. Decision signs are located on the near-side of intersections, and include destinations and directional arrows. Destination symbols, such as to Dublin/Pleasanton BART Stations, regional trail access, Downtown Dublin, and community destinations may be used.

This plan identifies preferred routes, locations and content for signage, and provides preferred sign design options. Signs are available for different land uses contexts and differentiate between the needs of bicyclist and pedestrians. More information is available at: http://www.wcaccesstransit.com/wayfinding/ Secure and convenient bicycle parking is an essential element of a bicycle trip, and critical in the effort to increase bicycle activity. Bicycle parking can be categorized as either short- or long-term, and the different purpose and design of short- and long-term bicycle parking must be considered:  Short-Term Parking is intended for less than two hours and should be conveniently located at destinations. They are typically bike racks, and should allow the bike frame and one wheel to be securely locked to the rack in a stable position without damage to the bicycle. Short-term parking should be free, as security is minimal, and use of proper bicycle parking facilities should be encouraged. Inverted U-racks meet these criteria and are recommended.  Long-Term Parking is meant to accommodate users expected to park bikes for several hours, and should therefore be secure and weather protected. Long-term bicycle parking facilities should protect the entire bicycle and components from theft and exposure to weather. Lockers, check-in facilities, monitored parking, restricted access parking, and personal storage are appropriate for long-term parking. Long-term parking is considerably more secure than short-term parking, and many users may be willing to pay a nominal fee to guarantee the safe storage of their bicycles. However, long-term parking should be free in places where vehicle parking is free. Parking should be highly visible, accessible and easy to use. Facilities should be located in well-lit areas and covered where possible. Installation is equally important; for example a rack that is too close to a wall or other obstruction will not be effectively utilized. See the figures on the following pages for design specifications. The existing bicycle parking ordinance is discussed in Chapter 5 Recommended Networks. The purpose of this section is to provide corresponding design guidance on the selection and siting of bicycle parking. Three categories of bicycle parking are discussed in this section:  In-street/Sidewalk Parking  Lockers  Enclosed Facilities Table 26 provides a summary of these categories including typical types of bicycle parking and how they should be used. For more information about the design and siting of bicycle parking, consult the Association of Pedestrian and Bicycle Professionals (APBP’s) Bicycle Parking Guidelines, 2nd edition for national best practices for bicycle parking guidance. See their website, http://www.apbp.org/?page=Publications for additional information. TABLE 26: BICYCLE PARKING FACILITIES Type Where Why In-street/Sidewalk Parking (Short-Term)  Inverted U-Rack  In-Street Bicycle Corral  Covered Bicycle Parking Facilities  Surface Parking Lot Conversion Appropriate in areas with pedestrian activity and commercial areas. In-street facilities are ideal for areas with constrained sidewalk space. Ideal for short-term parking needs (2-3 hours) Lockers (Long-Term)  Key Lockers  Electronic Lockers Appropriate for areas with low street activity or isolated areas. Provides a high level of security, useful for long-term parking needs (>3 hours) Enclosed Facilities (Long-Term)  Bicycle Cage  Bicycle Room  Bicycle Station Ideal for major transit hubs and areas with high bike volumes. Enclosed facilities can also be located in residential, commercial or employment centers with indoor space. Provides the highest level of security, particularly when parking is attended. Ideal for long-term and over-night parking needs. Inverted U-Racks are the most typical form of short-term bicycle parking. Photo: Dan Burden This section describes several types of typical short-term, in-street and sidewalk parking techniques. Key Considerations:  Bicyclists need to be able to lock both their frame and wheels to the rack  Racks should be in a highly visible location secured to the ground, preferably within 50 feet of a main entrance to a building or facility  Whenever possible, the racks should be visible from the doorways and/or windows of buildings, and not in an out of the way location, such as an alley  Care should be taken to not site the rack too close to a wall or fence, orient the rack the wrong way, or impede pedestrians  To accommodate a range of bicycle styles and sizes, racks must be installed to allow sufficient space between bicycles and between racks, as indicated at right  Where multiple racks are installed adjacent to each other, racks must be spaced to allow sufficient space for bicyclists and their bicycles to move about between racks, typically four-feet apart where aisles are provided  Install racks with surface mount (rather than cast-in place) in concrete (rather than asphalt) wherever possible. Anti-tampering bolts and other hardware should be used. If an asphalt substrate is all that is available, concrete footings should be poured. Multiple loop racks on flanges may in installed in asphalt, which can be useful for in-street bike corrals. For a more secure rack installation, perpendicular bars could be installed under the surface to prevent the rack from being pulled directly from the concrete.  Consult the diagrams that follow for guidance on siting and spacing of short-term racks Bike racks must be placed so that both sides are accessible for use; this photo illustrates poor rack placement. Source: APBP Bicycle Parking Guide, 2nd Edition Additional Considerations:  Consider consolidating bicycle racks and providing a sheltered structure, also referred to as a “bicycle oasis” (shown at right). The cover should be at least seven feet above the ground. Existing covers such as overhangs or awnings are a low cost way of incorporating covered parking.  At bus stops, bike racks should be placed outside of the bus pad area, adjacent to the front and back door of the bus to allow for increased pedestrian circulation at the bus stop and ADA access Surface Parking Space Conversion  Look for opportunities to convert auto parking spaces near key destinations to short term or long-term bicycle parking. Six racks can fit into the space occupied by one car. Bike cages can also be used in parking lots and provide security access through electric pass key systems. A Bicycle Oasis (left) provides multiple bicycle racks underneath a sheltered awning. This protects bikes from the elements. Bicycle rack siting recommendations (below) from APBP Bicycle Parking Guide, 2nd Edition Bicycle Lockers are long-term covered storage units that can be locked individually, providing secure parking for one bicycle. Bicycle cages are secure areas with limited-access doors. Occasionally, they are attended. Each of these means is designed to provide bicyclists with a high level of security so that they feel comfortable leaving their bicycles for long periods of time. They are appropriate for employees of large buildings and at transit stations. Lockers provide a secure place for bicyclists to store their helmets or other riding gear. Key Considerations:  Electronic bike lockers provide secure individualized parking that can be accessed with an electronic card. Unlike standard key lockers, which provide one key for one renter, a single e-locker can be rented by multiple cyclists each week by using smart card technology. The improved efficiency translates into greater availability, and is a popular option at transit stations throughout the Bay Area.  Bicycle lockers come in a variety of shapes and sizes depending on the need and the amount of space available, and the most common bicycle locker size is approximately 40” wide by 48” high by 72” long, which typically includes a diagonal divider inside the locker so that they will accommodate two bikes.  Most lockers with diagonal dividers are designed to open from two sides, so there should be adequate room on both sides of the locker to comfortably open the door and slide the bicycle in and out, which equates to six feet of clearance from both doors.  Wedge-shaped locker units can also be used—these accommodate one bicycle, and are a useful design for corner areas. They can also be placed against walls in areas with a constrained public right-of-way. 19th Street & Broadway Downtown Oakland BART electronic lockers. Source: Jason Patton, City of Oakland Bike Locker Placement Guidance This section describes several types of typical off-street and enclosed parking facilities, which are typically used for long-term parking. There are two basic types of enclosed long-term parking facilities:  Bicycle Cages are shared access storage areas in which cyclists lock their own bikes  Bicycle Rooms provide indoor enclosed and sheltered parking and protection from theft. Key Considerations for Bicycle Cages:  Often uses at transit centers and large employers or universities to provide an extra layer of security for long-term bike parking  Typically a popular option for bike commuters because they provide a high degree of security and they protect bikes  Can be accessed by registered users at any time, and with unlimited ins and outs.  Provide additional security over U-racks or other on-street parking facilities though many people may have access to the facility  Small cages are preferred to limit the number of people with access to any single cage.  Security may be bolstered by surveillance cameras and monitoring.  A single cage of 18’ by 20’ occupies the same footprint as two standard parking stalls (or 9’ by 20’ each.)  Cyclists gain access to the bike cage by signing up in advance for a key or a key code. Magnetic pass keys also allow parking managers to monitor who goes in and out of the bike cages.  Local jurisdictions or local non-profit organizations are typically responsible for implementing and maintaining this type of facility. Key Considerations for Bicycle Rooms:  May have wall racks or floor racks, and should allow easy access by elevator or ramp to the ground level  Bike rooms provide enclosed and sheltered parking and protection from theft  Typically found at transit terminal, but any available building floor space can be converted into a bike room  Adding self-serve features such as bike pumps, bike stand and basic tools creates extra amenities to cyclists.  Require little maintenance and an attendant is not needed because users are provided with an access code to enter facility.  Bike rooms are ideal in business parks or apartment or condominium complexes. Individual businesses or apartment complexes would be responsible for providing bike room facilities. High Security Bicycle Cages. Source: J. Luton and J. Stanley Since most cycling occurs on public roads, roadway maintenance is an important part of accommodating cycling. Below are some types of targeted maintenance.5 Surface Repairs: Inspect bikeways and road shoulders regularly for surface irregularities, such as potholes, pavement gaps or ridges. Such hazards should be repaired quickly. Sweeping: Prioritize bicycle routes when establishing a street sweeping schedule. Sweep road shoulders of accumulated sand and gravel in the springtime and fallen leaves in the autumn where they accumulate. Sweepings should be picked up rather than just pushed aside in areas with curbs. Driveway approaches may be paved to reduce loose gravel on paved roadway shoulders. Off-street bicycle facilities should have an established maintenance schedule that includes routine sweeping. Pavement Overlays: Where new pavement is installed, extend the overlay to the edge of the roadway. If this is not possible, ensure that no ridge remains at the edge of the road shoulder or bicycle lane. Do not 5 Todd Litman, Robin Blair, Bill Demopoulos, Nils Eddy, Anne Fritzel, Danelle Laidlaw, Heath Maddox, and Katherine Forster. Pedestrian and Bicycle Planning: A Guide to Best Practices. Victoria Transport Policy Institute (2010) leave a ridge within the bicycle travel area. Drain grates should be within 6 millimeters of the pavement height to create a smooth travel surface. Special attention should be given to ensure that utility covers and other road hardware are flush with new pavement. Rail Crossings: Rail crossings can be hazardous to cyclists, particularly if they are at an oblique angle. Warning signs and extra space at the road shoulder can allow cyclists to cross at a 90º angle. A special smooth concrete apron or rubber flange may be justified at some crossings. Vegetation: Vegetation may impede sight lines, or roots may break up the travel surface. Vegetation should be cut back to ensure adequate sight lines, and invasive tree roots may be cut back to preserve the travel surface. Street Markings: Bicycle lane markings and signal loop indicators may become hard to see over time. These should be inspected regularly and retraced when necessary. Markings: Whenever roadway markings are used, traction or non-skid paint should be used to avoid the markings becoming slippery in wet weather.
