Title:  Geometric Design Guide for Canadian Roads: Chapter 5 - Bicycle Integrated Design
Publication code:  PTM-GEODES5-E

The Geometric Design Guide for Canadian Roads is a fundamental reference document for roadway design practitioners in Canada. It contributes to the consistent and safe development and expansion of regional, provincial, and national roadway and highway systems in Canada.

The 2017 Guide contains the current design and human factors research and practices for roadway geometric design; it replaces the 1999 edition of the Guide and subsequent updates to it. The Guide provides guidance in developing design solutions that meet the needs of a range of users while addressing the context of local conditions and environments. Design guidelines for freeways, arterials, collectors, and local roads, in both urban and rural locations, are included as well as guidance for integrated bicycle and pedestrian design.

Chapter 5 – Bicycle Integrated Design provides guidance and examples on how to holistically integrate the design of bicycle facilities into the roadway design to achieve a balanced solution for all modes and road users. Guidance is provided on bicycle and in-line skater design needs, types of bicycle facilities, and a framework for the selection of an appropriate type of facility, and specific design elements.
