Course Purpose
Ontario Traffic Manual Book 18 – Cycling Facilities is the primary design resource used by municipalities throughout Ontario. Since the first edition was published in 2014, design of cycling facilities has quickly evolved. The new OTM Book 18 provides practitioners with an updated toolbox, informed by the most current research and lessons learned, to plan and implement cycling networks and infrastructure. Through presentations from experts, hands-on exercises and group discussions, this course will provide an opportunity to learn about best practices and emerging design solutions that can help build connected cycling network that appeal to all ages and abilities.
