The National Association of City Transportation Officials (NACTO) has released the second edition of its Urban Bikeway Design Guide. As with its first edition, the guide provides guidance on the design of numerous creative bicycle facilities in an urban environment. I had mentioned the first edition last year, on April 2. Since then, no new full member cities have been added, but Arlington, Cambridge, Hoboken, Indianapolis, Memphis, and Ventura (CA) have become affiliate members. The Urban Design Bikeway Guide offers interesting suggestions on facilities that planners might want to consider implementing.
