The system facilitates pedestrian linkages to public transit, accommodating more than 200,000 business-day commuters, and thousands of additional tourists and residents on route to sports and cultural events.Its underground location provides pedestrians with a safe haven from the winter cold and snow, and the summer heat. By 1917 there were five tunnels in the downtown core.The Pedestrian and Bicyclist Advisory Committee's mission is to help make the City of Lebanon more safely walk-able and bike-able by facilitating, enhancing, and encouraging safe pedestrian and bicyclist travel and connectivity in the City of Lebanon.The existing Committee, formerly the Bicycle/Pedestrian Path Committee, was a short-term Committee which had been charged with drafting a master plan for sidewalks and bicycle transportation improvements for review by the Planning Board and City Council, surveyed potential users of improvement options to help assess relative need and priority, and promoting bicyclist and pedestrian safety education.When pedestrian and cyclist facilities are impacted due to maintenance or construction, pedestrian and cyclist accommodations must be provided to the maximum extent feasible.
INTRODUCTION Pedestrian and Cyclist Safety In Work Zones PBOT has developed the following guidelines for providing space for cyclists and pedestrians through work zones.
Coordinate, consult with, and advise City administration (Planning, Public Works, Parks and recreation, Manager) and City Boards (City Council, Planning Board, Public Safety Committee, Recreation Commission and Conservation Commission) on matters that may impact pedestrians and bicyclists, including reviewing City and State public works projects with regard to accommodating pedestrians and bicyclists, assisting with evaluation and preparation of funding applications (especially for the Transportation Enhancement Program [TEP]), and following through on implementation.
Formerly the Bicycle/Pedestrian Path Committee established September 7, 1994, with members appointed October 5, 1994.
In this rule, the words “Shall” and “Should” are used to describe specific conditions.
To clarify the use of these terms, the following definitions apply: • SHALL - A mandatory condition or action. • MAY – A permissive conditions where no requirement for design, application, or standards is intended. POLICY The blockage of a sidewalk, cycle lane, or other public use path shall be regarded with the same importance as the closure of a lane of motor vehicle traffic by applying temporary traffic control practices.
