The spring 2021 issue of the Florida Engineering Society’s FES Journal features the story of the City of West Palm Beach, Fla., and its investment in an innovative lane-sharing concept that benefits users of all ages, abilities, and modes of transportation.
The City of West Palm Beach’s road improvement project on Spruce Avenue, a residential roadway located in a historic district, introduces the first Advisory Bike Lanes (ABL) to the city’s bicycle infrastructure. This safer, more equitable model relies on traffic-calming elements to provide motorists with guidance for yielding to bicyclists, and it aims to provide bicyclists with a safer means for traveling along roadways.
Scott Edgar, PE, project manager at Erdman Anthony’s West Palm Beach office, co-authored the article with Lina Camacho, PE, senior project engineer for the City of West Palm Beach. Erdman Anthony provided design-engineering consultation for the project.
