Comm. Ave. @ BU Bridge: A Compact Intersection Based on a Copenhagen Design

Graduate student Jeff Bachiochi designed a compact intersection based on a Copenhagen design that allows bikes and pedestrians to cross concurrently, yet protected from high right-turn volumes – an efficient design that results in a short cycle and short delays for pedestrians, cyclists, and vehicles. This presentation explains the concept and shows how much better it performs compared to the MassDOT concept now in construction. Presentation includes a link to a simulation video showing how the 3 alternatives work with a.m. peak hour traffic.
