Edge Lane Roads on Public Lands




This research will investigate the safety and capacity-expanding potential of the Edge Lane Road (ELR) treatment on Federal lands. An ELR is a roadway designed for two-way motor vehicle traffic in center lanes, with space to accommodate vulnerable road users, such as cyclists, in the edge lanes on either side. ELRs show substantial promise in improving safety and expanding facilities for vulnerable road users such as bicyclists and pedestrians. A primary product of this research will be an ELR implementation guide for Federal lands.
